New Weapon in the War on Terrorism from FP Technologies Protects New York City Buildings from Bio-Weapons

NEW YORK, NY - Aug. 5, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Financial institutions, key government buildings and hospitals are using a new technology for protection against terrorists using biological weapons. The VIGILAIR™ technology from FP Technologies, Inc. (www.vigilairsystems.com) safeguards against attacks in which biological agents, such as anthrax, are released inside or near a building.

"Our technology stops and kills anthrax before it can spread throughout a building's ventilation system," says Tim Leach, CEO of FP Technologies, the company that engineers the VIGILAIR™ bio-defense systems. "In light of the recent elevated terror risk, I am proud that VIGILAIR™ is protecting several high profile buildings in the Manhattan area."

The U.S. Federal government has warned that the ventilation systems of buildings are an ideal target for bio-terrorism. A small amount of anthrax introduced into ground level air intakes could quickly be dispersed throughout a building exposing thousands of occupants to the deadly pathogen.

How do the systems work?
VIGILAIR™ systems use a wavelength of Ultra Violet (UV) light that acts as a powerful germicide. UV lights, filtration and reflective materials are configured inside a buildings Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system to purify air as it circulates through the system. When engineered properly, radiation produced by the UV lights kills microorganisms such as spores, bacteria and viruses.

Systems are designed for installation in any size air handler unit and provide non-obtrusive protection 24 hours a day.

Who uses the bio-defense systems?
For security reasons, FP Technologies has agreed to not divulge specific facilities using VIGILAIR™ systems. It is accurate to say that financial institutions and strategically important government buildings in New York use the systems to safeguard their HVAC. The system has also been installed in several hospitals designated as regional Emergency Response disaster centers.

(c) vigilair logo Are bio-weapons a threat?
Yes. Many buildings take fresh air into their HVAC system via unprotected vents at street level. A single cupful of anthrax dumped into an air intake could potentially infect more than a thousand people inside the building.
