Rensair makes light work of air purity at Liberty GYM Sarlat


Liberty GYM Sarlat, a fitness club based in southwestern France, has selected Rensair air purification to protect its members from coronavirus. Part of a nationwide franchise network, the club offers a variety of activities, with top-of-the-range facilities and qualified fitness coaches. 

“Our top priority is the health and safety of our members”, says Jean-Claude Roques, Président at Liberty GYM Sarlat. ”The medical authorities now believe that COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through the air. In indoor spaces, especially where exercise is taking place, that threat is amplified due to enhanced aerosol generation, so we needed to find a practical solution to protect everyone at the gym.” 

Jean-Claude chose Rensair because of its hospital heritage and independent validations from leading scientific laboratories. Of particular interest was a recent test conducted by the Danish Technological Institute (DTI) to determine the unit’s performance in reducing the concentration of Covid-19 particles in the air. The test recorded a particle reduction rate of 99.98 % in 15 minutes and above 99.99 % in 30 minutes. Furthermore, the DTI reported 100% elimination of virus particles on the filter, with zero traces detected.

Another key consideration was the unit’s large cleaning capacity. Rensair uses a robust centrifugal fan, which creates much higher pressure than axial fans commonly used in other air purifiers and enables the unit to clean up to 560m³ of air per hour, ideal for an open space with high occupancy. 

“After acquiring our Rensair units, we were confident in reassuring our members that they were protected by a hospital-grade system that was truly fit for purpose”, says Jean-Claude. “Our members feel reassured, especially when they hear reports on the news about new variants of the virus. Coming here is important to them, not only for their physical health but their mental health too.”
