Beyond That, We've Expanded Our Daily/Hourly Safety Techniques
Our Investment to Create a Safer Indoor Dining Experience
As summer comes to end (we know, we aren't ready to say goodbye to summer either) and we move indoors, we want to assure you and all our guests that we're taking every precaution to ensure your safety while dining inside our restaurants with a clean and healthy experience.
We're excited to announce our large investment with GPS technologies Ionization HVAC system. This system helps reduce airborne pathogens by up to 99%, including Covid-19 by 90%. Through their patented technology, NEEDLEPOINT BIPOLAR IONIZATION, also known as NPBI, their products purify indoor air by eliminating airborne particulates, odors and pathogens. All this while minimizing energy consumption and lowering our carbon footprint by reducing outdoor air intake. GPS delivers clean indoor air that is safe and healthy - producing neither ozone nor other harmful by-products. As of today, this technology has been installed at all CRAVE locations.
How GPS Ionization Technology Works
The patented technology uses an electronic charge to create a plasma field filled with a high concentration of + and - ions. As these ions travel with the air stream they attach to particles, pathogens and gas molecules. The ions help to agglomerate find sub-micron particles, making them filterable. The ions kill pathogens by robbing them of life-sustaining hydrogen. The ions brake down harmful VOCs with an Electron Volt Potential under twelve (eV<12) into harmless compounds like O2, CO2, N2 and Hp. The ions produced travel within the air stream into the occupied spaces, cleaning the air everywhere the ions travel, even in spaces unseen.
