Tacoma Venues & Events announced today that the Tacoma Dome and the Greater Tacoma Convention Center have installed AtmosAir Solutions bi-polar ionization (BPI) technology to provide an improved indoor environment in both venues.
AtmosAir Solutions BPI devices, installed in both building HVAC systems, improves wellness by
suppressing airborne and surface micro-organisms and pathogens, including viruses, bacteria and mold, and reduces odors as well as unhealthy and irritating volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The technology makes both buildings more sustainable while reducing energy and operational costs.
“This is another step in our commitment to our guests and staff as we safely return to events,” said Kim Bedier, Director for Tacoma Venues & Events. “Combined with our GBAC Star cleaning standards, and new protocols to reduce touchpoints throughout our guest journey, our crew has developed a safe way forward in welcoming guests back for enjoyable event experiences.”
“We’re are very pleased to partner with the City of Tacoma in providing improved indoor air quality in the Tacoma Dome & Convention Center,” said Steve Levine, president and CEO of AtmosAir Solutions.
“As more people are vaccinated and entertainment venues reopen, it’s important that people know safety and wellness initiatives have been considered as a layer of protection in these venues. By adding our indoor air purification technology, those who attend future events can feel confident that both venues have taken steps to provide piece of mind for improved indoor environments.”
AtmosAir’s BPI technology also plays a role in reducing the spread of coronavirus. Tests performed by Microchem Laboratory, one of the world’s preeminent laboratories for testing sanitizing products registered by the EPA and FDA, confirmed that the presence of coronavirus was reduced by 99.92 percent within 30 minutes of exposure to AtmosAir’s BPI technology in a contained space.
The Tacoma Dome and Greater Tacoma Convention Center join a long list of venues that have installed BPI technology including: The Staples Center in Los Angeles, TD Garden in Boston, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Little Caesars Arena in Detroit and the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA. and US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis are some of the indoor sports facilities that also use BPI technology.
