Carrier has introduced its Healthy Buildings Program which is a suite of solutions to provide a healthy, safe and productive indoor environment across key verticals including commercial buildings, healthcare, hospitality, retail and education.
The global program was announced this month by Carrier CEO and president, Dave Gitlin.
"COVID-19 has reinforced the important role that buildings play in ensuring and protecting public health," he said.
"As people return to work, hotels greet guests, schools welcome back students and stores reopen, indoor air quality and safe buildings are of paramount importance.
“For the economy to successfully recover, people need to have trust in the safety of the buildings they are entering.
“New technologies like microscopic filtration systems and touchless building controls have gone from nice-to-have conveniences to must-have protections.”
Head of Carrier’s Building Solutions Group, Rajan Goel, will lead the new program which provides solutions for increased outside air ventilation and enables more touchless interactions.
"Through the Healthy Buildings Program, Carrier's experts will work closely with customers to not only design but operate, maintain and upgrade buildings that protect what's most important – the health of those inside,” Goel said.
Solutions range from IAQ upgrades to filtration technologies and the OptiClean Negative Air Machine which cleans contaminated air and creates pressure to prevent air from spreading to different sections of a building.
