Bronx-Based Elevator Manufacturer Creates New Technology to Fight COVID-19 and Prevent Other Pathogenic Spread in Elevators – Sterilyft | News


NEW YORK, Oct. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — CEC Elevator Cab Corp. officially announced its latest innovative contribution to the elevator manufacturing business: Sterilyft ( Sterilyft is a completely unique elevator air filtration and sterilization system made in America to fight the current pandemic, and prevent future pathogenic spread. Sterilyft uses the germicidal power of UV-C light to kill pathogens, double MERV 13 filtering and then adding purified air back into the elevator cab space in a closed loop arrangement. CEC Elevator Cab Corp. manufactures Sterilyft in its Bronx-based facility, and has already installed the system in seven different states across the U.S., with plans to fill recent orders across the globe.

“We’re very proud to announce the Sterilyft system. It’s absolutely the latest in pathogenic-fighting technology for the elevator cab space,” said Nick Gretsuk, Executive Vice President at CEC Elevator Cab Corp. “The only way we’re going to win this war against COVID-19 is by being proactive – taking the battle to small, enclosed spaces like elevators. Risk mitigation is key, and companies need to assure the public that offices and multi-storied buildings are as safe as possible for those beginning to return to work and public life. Companies can begin by assuring that elevators are clean and safe places again – an assurance we’re providing with Sterilyft. The future of the Sterilyft device will soon see it expand beyond elevator use. We’re already working on similar systems for airline travel, school classrooms, hotels, mass transit, and other enclosed public areas in need of air sterilization and filtration.”

Sterilyft: The Future of Air Sterilization

Sterilyft’s pathogen-fighting technology is based upon several already tested and proven principles currently in use today: UV-C irradiation for sterilization purposes, high efficiency filtering of contaminants from air, and use of forced air
