A Las Vegas-based design build general contractor, SR Construction, has deployed the first Xtreme Opti-Clean Cube in the fight against Covid-19.
Produced by Xtreme Cubes Corporation, a manufacturer of modular buildings based in Henderson, Nevada, the Xtreme Opti-Clean Cube (XOCC) is a modular walk-through station designed to combat the spread of Covid-19, bacterias, and other viruses.
Partnering with Proguardeum Corporation, an environmental technology company, and Maddox Defense, Xtreme Cubes says it has built the first mobile walk-through structure produced in the U.S. with an unobtrusive dry mist system of the Proguardeum solution that is safe on skin, clothing and requires no protective equipment to be worn.
Designed to be used at the entrances and exits to project sites, SR Construction ordered three Xtreme Opti-Clean Cubes when the concept was previewed to them in May 2020. The first unit was delivered to SR Construction on July 13, and has been deployed immediately at the entrance to a construction site at the 262-bed Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, where they are building a new five-story patient tower.
SR Construction employees, trade partners, and site visitors will walk through the XOCC as they enter and exit the job site, helping to minimize the risk of infection on the project.
Bret Loughridge, president, SR Construction said, “The health and safety of our employees, sub-contractors, and community is the top priority at SR Construction. We have served the Las Vegas valley since 1991, and we are proud to be working with other Las Vegas businesses to lead the way in combating Covid-19 and other viruses and bacteria. We are the first company in the world to deploy the Xtreme Opti-Clean Cube solution, and look forward to introducing the cubes onto our job sites, as well as leading the construction sector in utilizing this technology to keep our industry safe.”
Using proprietary and patented technologies to deliver an EPA- and FDA-approved hypochlorous solution (HOCL), the Proguardeum solution is produced at its highest purity in the form of hypochlorous (HOCL) without any contaminants, offering superior efficacy to inactivate 99.999 percent, a 5-log reduction, of known pathogens including Covid-19, and a long-standing stability for storage. Proguardeum contains no additives, buffers, or preservatives, and is pH neutral and is non-toxic and non-hazardous to people and surfaces. This eco-friendly solution is designed to help eliminate the spread of infectious surface and airborne pathogens.
Equipped with motion sensors, the Proguardeum solution is applied as a person walks through the Xtreme Opti-Clean Cube. Measuring 8X12 feet long, each XOCC is equipped with forklift pockets, meaning they can be relocatable or a permanent addition to existing buildings and facilities. The customizable structure includes options such as a thermal vision camera system.
