“It was really important to Alfa Travel to find a solution that would keep our customers and drivers safe. The COVID-19 pandemic brought our business to a grinding halt in March and it was important that we were positioned for a restart with a product that would efficiently deal with aerosol particles. After searching what was becoming a very confusing market in the summer with companies making lots of claims it as clear that the Aura Air filter was the only solution. Aura Air not only sucks away and destroys the virus but provides us with the ability to monitor particle levels.”
The new standard for COVID-19 VIRUS protection IN TRANSPORTATION
So much more than just a "HEPA Air Filtration" system or "Ioniser" ...
IN A 70M3 COACH, Aura AiR will filter THIS VOLUME OF AIR 5x EVERY HOUR AT FULL POWER (6x IS THE RECOMMENDATION FOR HOSPITAL WARDS*)

Announcing, the first retrofittable, compact, powerful, intelligent Air Filtration/Disinfection system for the Transportation Industry:
- Aggressively destroys 99% of Viruses and Bacteria
Unlike traditional systems, Aura Air does not rely on UV-C light alone - it deploys two additional PATENTED technologies. The HEPA filter includes an integrated Carbon Filter to reduce Odours. The unit also has an integrated Fire & Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
- Compact & powerful - but quiet when it needs to be
Aura Air have incorporated the latest fan technology in the unit to achieve a maximum CADR of 206CFM (350m3/hour). Each unit can clean a volume of 70m3, 5 times every hour which is the recommended air exchange rate for hospital wards.
- Reduced “Fallow Time” between journeys
Minimises the time it takes to neutralise the air in the cabin before cleaners are allowed to enter the cabin.
- The only Filter system having undergone COVID-19 related Clinical trials
It is actively being used in the COVID wards of one of the top 10 Clinical Hospitals in the world and has been Clinically tested for its effectiveness against the spreading of the virus via airborne aerosol droplets generated by heavy breathing, speaking, singing, coughing and sneezing.
- Staff and Customers - peace of mind
The unit also has a variety of in-built high-precision sensors, measuring particulate concentrations and pollutant levels. These can be displayed in real-time via a free, downloadable App, to passengers and staff on their Smart Phones and Tablets.
- Simple to install
Uses the existing 24v DC Power line for its power via a simple low cost 24v to 12v DC Convertor. Only consumes 30W of Power.
- Easy to replace the Filter (typically only once every 6 months)
The Viruses and Bacteria are destroyed by the Copper, Sterionizer and UV-C light in the unit. Replacement is only required typically every 6 months - the filter know how heavily is has been used so which actually tell you via the App when it should be swapped out. Replacement literally takes seconds to unclip the old Filter and clip in the new one.
SPECIAL RENTAL PACKAGE - £25* per month
Aura Air are offering a 3 year rental package, including replacement Filters every 6 months, for the special rate of £25+VAT per month per unit (minimum of 4 units per company). This package includes an App displaying local conditions on a Smart Phone or Tablet, viewable by staff and customers alike. * The monthly rate is subject to Finance company approval.
MEASURES & DISPLAYS, REAL-TIME AIRBORNE PARTICULATE LEVELS
The Aura Air Filter system accurately measures and displays PM2.5 and PM10 particulate sizes in real-time - on a Smart Phone, Tablet or Computer Display - useful in providing feedback of the level of airborne particles in every carriage that are known to carry the COVID-19 Coronavirus. The Aura Air Filter system also accurately measures and displays VOC, Humidity, CO and CO2 levels - updated every 10 seconds.
A SCALABLE, MANAGEABLE, DISPLAYABLE SOLUTION
Monitor multiple Aura Air units on one vehicle, or even a fleet - assuming you have local WiFi capability with the optional "Dashboard" App. The customisable "Dashboard" of chosen "Events" can be displayed on a PC or a large screen monitor, for instance in the Central Depot or Control Room - wherever an instant overview is required - for peace of mind or for any forthcoming legal health requirements.
CLINICAL TEST REPORTS
THE POLLUTION ISSUES IN LONDON
TfL were contacted by us with a proposed solution for every carriage and in every driver's cabin over three months ago - no response as yet
PM2.5 - FINE PARTICLES - 15 times higher
concentrationS than above ground
Research carried out on various parts of the Underground network found that concentrations of fine particles (PM2.5) were 15 times higher than above ground, plus greater than those found in the subway networks of Beijing, Guangzhou, Los Angeles, Mexico, New York, Seoul, Taipei, Sydney and Barcelona. Those who travelled by Tube were exposed to much higher levels of PM2.5 than those who travel by bike, car or bus, and that a typical daily commute can make up a significant proportion of a person’s daily exposure to fine particles.
Excerpt from a report from the “Environmental International” Journal
AND IT'S NOT A GREAT STORY ABOVE GROUND EITHER ...
We found that the level of pollution taxi drivers were exposed to (4.1 µg/m³) was a third higher than measurements recorded at one of the busiest roads in London (3.1 µg/m³). This exposure is higher than if you worked at a desk that was literally sat on a road frequented by 90,000 vehicles each day.
