By Jenny Lescohier28 July 2020
Las Vegas-based SR Construction, a full-service design build general contractor, is the first to use the new Xtreme Opti-Clean Cube in the fight against the spread of Covid-19.
Produced by Xtreme Cubes Corporation, a manufacturer of modular buildings based in Henderson, Nevada, US, 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, providing human decontamination solutions, Xtreme Cubes has built the first mobile walk-through structure produced in the US with an unobtrusive dry mist system of the Proguardeum solution that is safe on skin, clothing and requires no protective equipment to be worn, according to reports.
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 13 July, and has been deployed immediately at the entrance to a construction site at the 262-bed Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas, where they are building a new five-story patient tower.
“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 utilising this technology to keep our industry safe,” Bret Loughridge, president, SR Construction said.
Using proprietary and patented technologies to safely 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 efficacy to inactivate 99.999% of known pathogens including Covid-19, reports said. Proguardeum contains no additives, buffers or preservatives, is pH neutral and is non-toxic and non-hazardous to people and surfaces.
Part of the Ahern Family of Companies, owned by Don Ahern who also owns Xtreme Mfg. and Snorkel, Xtreme Cubes Corporation designs and manufactures custom modular buildings for a wide range of applications, including multi-family residential, office, retail, hospitality, military, industrial and agricultural.
The Opti-Clean Cube was introduced to North America, but Xtreme Cubes Corporation says it’s open to export opportunities.
