The React-Air X units are a great addition to the home's normal cleaning routines - easy to use and easy to manoeuvre between rooms

Portable Air Purifier and Surface Sanitiser for Commercial Environments
The React-Air X is a portable air sanitiser designed for use in a variety of smaller environments. Using a unique UV-C light array, the powerful fans drive the airflow through the decontamination chamber, neutralising bacteria, viruses, pollen and odours, delivering clean and sterile air to a room.
Unlike ozone generators, it can be used whilst people remain in the room and generates no harmful gasses and at a fraction of the price of leading portable ozone generators. When used in conjunction with normal cleaning techniques, it is highly effective in the fight against bacteria and viruses.
UV-C technology has been used for many years to sterilise hospitals, operating theatres and surgical instruments.
When placed in a room with an airborne viral or bacterial risk, the RAX circulates the air up to 8 times per hour (depending on room size). Use our room / air exchange calculator here.
Its quiet operation, portable design and high-powered UV-C technology is the perfect combination for intermittent or constant use within a care environment.
Our React-Air X is very easy to use, it's totally unobtrusive. The fact we can use with residents present is very helpful.
It provides extra reassurance alongside our infection control which is the most important thing.

How Can the React-Air X Help Beat Viruses?
The React-Air X is the bigger brother of our classic React-Air One model of pathogen neutralisers. Seated on durable castors, its stronger, more durable casing combined with 30% more UV-C emission, higher-powered fans, and improved dwell time makes it ideal for heavy-duty, commercial environments.
The three main types of UV rays are UVA, UVB, and UVC. Because UV-C rays have the shortest wavelength, and therefore highest energy, they are capable of killing bacteria and viruses, also called pathogens. UVC light has a wavelength of between 200 and 400 nanometers (nm). It is highly effective at decontamination because it destroys the molecular bonds that hold together the DNA of viruses and bacteria, including "superbugs" which have developed a stronger resistance to antibiotics.
Powerful UV-C light has been regularly used to decontaminate surgical tools and hospital rooms. A study that included 21,000 patients (1) who stayed overnight in a room where someone had been previously treated found that sanitising a hospital room with UV-C light in addition to traditional methods of cleaning cut transmission of drug-resistant bacteria by 30%. This is partly because UVC light can effectively sanitise hard-to-clean nooks and crannies. UV-C light also works by destroying the DNA of pathogens, which makes it effective against "superbugs."
What our customers are saying:
We have been using the Reaction Group React Air X unit in each of our care homes since June. I was sourcing a number of similar products however the React Air X seemed best value for money and I am glad we were proactive in purchasing these. They are easy to use with just a simple plug & switch. We feel they are safe to use around the homes and they are easily portable.
As advised when purchasing the initial units, we were told that they can sanitise the air in a standard residents room in under an hour which is brilliant for our use. They are now part of our daily cleaning procedures to sanitise bedrooms as well as common areas such as living rooms and dining rooms. With cases rising nationally, we feel it is a paramount requirement to ensure the safety of our staff and residents so have already placed an additional order.

How effective are our React-Air products against coronavirus?
Since coronavirus (covid-19) is a new virus, testing products specifically against this strain is not possible. Any company claiming that their air steriliser is guaranteed to eliminate Covid-19 must be able to back this up with evidence. Studies by The University of Boston undertaken in 2020 have shown that Covid-19 is highly susceptible to UVC light. Japanese scientists have been conducting studies on the effects of ozone in neutralising Covid-19 on surfaces and have shown it to be highly effective with a 90% sterilisation rate. This information, published by research.net shows the results and effective dosages of UV-C light required to inactivate various strains of coronavirus.
“Table 1 above summarises the results of studies that have been performed on Coronaviruses under ultraviolet light exposure, with the specific species indicated in each case. The D90 value indicates the ultraviolet dose for 90% inactivation.
Although there is a wide range of variation in the D90 values, this is typical of laboratory studies on ultraviolet susceptibility. The range of D90 values for coronaviruses is 7-241 J/m2 the mean of which is 67 J/m2, should adequately represent the ultraviolet susceptibility of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus.”
By using this exposure data, and comparing the UV light irradiance measurements from our products, we calculate the exposure times required to deactivate coronaviruses. This is however, a calculation and currently is not backed up by laboratory tests.
