Trotec’s infection control solutions
Technically effective solutions for reducing the risk of infection in schools, daycare centres, gastronomy, trade and commerce
Mobile high-performance air purifiers with HEPA filter technology for virus filtration and air pollution control
Whether at home, at school, in the daycare centre or at work: we spend almost 90 % of the day indoors. However, interior air is rarely ever uncontaminated and clean. Viruses such as the COVID-19 pathogen SARS-CoV-2, the influenza virus, but also bacteria, fine dust, allergens and other harmful substances pollute the air we breathe and endanger our health. Our high-performance air purifiers of the TAC series developed for commercial use, the TAC XT as a unique combined solution for room air purification, thermal virus inactivation and decontamination of surfaces, but also the air purifiers of the AirgoClean series recommended for private environments and self-employed persons clean the room air with efficient HEPA filter technology and thus reduce the risk of infectious pathogens entering the body via respiration.
The mobile high-performance air purifiers TAC V+, TAC M and TAC ECO were developed explicitly for filtering out virus-laden aerosols in interior spaces. Several studies confirm the virucidal effectiveness of the TAC V+.
With the high-performance air purifiers of the TAC series Trotec offers professional solutions for aerosol-free filtered clean air quality in larger rooms such as schools, restaurants, offices, medical practices or hotels. By providing virus-filtered clean air, the TAC V+ ensures a high level of protection for employees and customers, teachers and students, staff and patients in commercial environments and public facilities. But even in smaller rooms you can benefit from our expertise in air purification and virus filtration:

Acrylic glass shields with an aerosol protective edge as a crystal-clear protective barrier against infectious droplets and aerosols
Wherever people talk, learn or work together in a confined space and a minimum distance of 1.50 m cannot be maintained, the transparent acrylic glass shields with an aerosol protective edge provide a high level of protection on both sides against the respiratory intake of infectious pathogens. For example in classrooms, in lecture halls, in offices, on assembly lines, in medical practices or at customer counters and in retail stores.
Due to their unique shape, the partitions with a scientifically confirmed effectiveness reduce the intake of virus-containing particles through droplets and aerosols. The surrounding aerosol edge causes aerosol particles ejected towards the screen when speaking, coughing or sneezing to be deflected at the acrylic glass shield and to flow radially outwards to the edge, where they are deflected again. People in the vicinity are much better protected even from aerosol particles in the micrometre size range.
Triple indicator for healthy room air: air quality measuring devices (CO2-traffic lights)
The CO2 load is an important indicator for the required ventilation measures. Trotec particle measuring devices are therefore recommended for estimating the aerosol load of the indoor air. In addition to current CO2 values and the prevailing climate data, the pollution with particulate matter is also displayed in the particle sizes PM2.5 or PM10.
The air quality monitor BQ30, which can be used as a stand-alone unit, should not be missing on any teacher’s desk or in any open-plan office because this environmental monitoring station shows you the most important values for healthy room air at a glance: In addition to current CO2 values and the prevailing climate data, the pollution with particulate matter is also displayed in the particle sizes PM2.5 or PM10. Apart from the BQ30 you’ll also find further professional particle counters such as the PC200 or the PC220 in the Trotec product range. Our particle counters cannot only be used for inspecting the air quality, but to test filter systems as well, for example.
Important: neither the level of air pollution with fine dust of particle size PM2.5 nor the CO2 load in the room allow any statements about the risk of infection! None of the two values are a measurand of the risk of infection, since there is no correlation between CO2 or PM2.5 concentration and viral load.

High-quality disposable face masks with multi-layer filter fleece to reduce the speed of COVID-19 spread
The transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus can be prevented by different types of face masks. Trotec offers protective masks of different protection classes to protect your environment.
The face masks manufactured in Germany using the melt-blown process use medical filter fleece, which is also used for the production of FFP3 medical respirators. Besides larger droplets, the face masks filter even the tiniest particles from the air and are therefore particularly recommended for the protection against airborne infectious diseases.
Our disposable face masks with a three-layer filter fleece reliably prevent the wearer from contaminating their environment with potentially viral droplets. Moreover, the tested quality masks with a certified filter proof have a high bacterial filter performance. The anatomically adjustable fit, the edges made of soft fleece and the flexible elastic bands guarantee a high level of wearing comfort, even when used for several hours.
Ozone generators for professional ozone inactivation of the coronavirus and other pathogens on surfaces
Wherever many people come together, for example in waiting areas at the doctor’s, when going to the authorities or when shopping in supermarkets and pharmacies, infectious pathogens leave their traces on the furniture and surfaces. Especially in the current coronavirus pandemic, there is always a risk of contracting viruses, germs or bacteria.
With the powerful ozone generators of the Airozon series, you can rely on an effective as well as time- and cost-saving solution to meet the challenges of effective surface decontamination within the framework of the applicable hygiene concept. Human pathogenic viruses and bacteria are reliably killed by the Airozon’s ozone treatment.
The ozone generators from Trotec cover all performance and price classes. For occasional use, we recommend using the attractively priced and handy generators Airozon 14 ECO and Airozon 28 ECO. For permanent professional use and large-scale decontamination, the ozone generators Airozon 10000, Airozon 20000 and Airozon 60000 deliver an outstanding ozone performance.
Ozone treatment is made even more economical when using the Zerozon 200. The compact device significantly accelerates the ozone decomposition after the treatment and thus enables a faster reuse of the treated room.
Scientifically recommended protection concept for schools in times of a pandemic – information for teachers and parents:
Normality, how does that work? Everything has changed since COVID-19. We are faced with a different kind of everyday life. However, the longing for familiar normality persists. Are there solutions that can make school life more pleasant and uncomplicated again for everyone involved?
Classroom teaching in times of pandemic can succeed, Prof. Dr. Christian Kähler is certain. Even without mandatory masks and open windows, for these measures impair our well-being and the quality of teaching. The world-renowned scientist has been researching the generation, spread and evaporation of aerosol particles in space for more than 25 years at the University of the Federal Armed Forces in Munich. Commissioned by Trotec, Prof. Dr. Kähler has researched a protection concept for schools ensuring that pupils and teachers are protected in the best possible way against an infection with the coronavirus during the lessons. Instead of wearing masks when seated and regular shock ventilation with open windows, the combined use of TAC high-performance air purifiers and innovative acrylic glass partitions allows for carefree teaching in the coronavirus crisis.

Scientifically recommended infection control concept for offices and office workstations – information for employers and employees:
Many companies are facing completely new challenges in the coronavirus pandemic. Whereas before COVID-19 only the common occupational health and safety regulations had to be complied with, for example to prevent accidents at the workplace, employers now have to take far more extensive preventive measures to protect their employees from an infection with the COVID-19 pathogen SARS-CoV-2 at the workplace. 60 % of employees in Germany cannot work from home. Therefore, effective protection concepts with technical infection control solutions are recommended to reduce sick leave and operational impacts to a minimum. The combined use of TAC high-performance air purifiers and acrylic glass partitions with aerosol protective edge protects employees at the workplace against the dangers of a coronavirus infection. Read our coronavirus guide for offices and office workstations to find out how these Trotec solutions can be optimally integrated into office environments.
