Djurgården Hockey installs LightAir Health+
Clean, virus-free air to promote health and performance
Djurgården Hockey has chosen the LightAir Health+ air purification system for its elite-level men’s, women’s and junior ice hockey teams. The advanced air purification solution is now being installed and will cover meeting rooms, changing rooms and gym.
Djurgården Hockey, a leading Swedish professional hockey club in Stockholm, has been a fertile ground for many Swedish national team players, and has laid the foundations for numerous NHL careers on American and Canadian ice. All hockey activities in the Djurgården organization are based on the twin aspirations of high-performing teams and individual development. The basic goal is to ensure that each individual stays healthy and match-ready.
"Our premises often present a tough air quality environment, based on challenges with a lot of equipment, sweat and moisture," says K-G Stoppel, deputy CEO of Djurgården Hockey. “Now we’re quite pleased to have found a solution with a proven technology that minimizes airborne viruses and filters out harmful ultra-fine particles. We will also have an ongoing collaboration with LightAir to follow up more detailed statistics on general health and illness among our players. Improved indoor air quality has an extra strong focus during this pandemic we’re all going through, but it’s also of great interest for the future, because we’re exposed to cold and flu seasons every year.”
LightAir Health+ is an innovative solution for air purification that consists of two complementary technologies. First, highly efficient air purifiers that lower the concentration of air pollutants through filtration. As much as 99.99% of traffic pollutants, viruses and ultrafine particles are removed from the indoor air. The second component consists of patented virus inhibitors, which actively seek out and destroy residual airborne viruses already in the air. The two technologies together thus provide double protection against airborne viruses.
“Our customers are normally found in completely different types of results-focused businesses, such as offices and schools,” says Lars Liljeholm, CEO of LightAir AB (publ). “This collaboration with Djurgården means a slightly different, but extremely tough, air quality environment. The LightAir Health+ installation in these premises will also quickly improve conditions for increased performance and reduced sick leave.”
The solution being installed at Djurgården Hockey is offered in Sweden primarily on a subscription basis, where clean air is provided as a service – including installation and ongoing maintenance. The service doesn’t tie up capital and comes with a lifetime warranty regarding hardware functionality.
