ST. PETERSBURG, FL — Flanders Corp. has adapted its high-end air filtration technology and other biocontainment systems for use in office complexes, sports arenas, and other public venues. According to the company, these systems may include high-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) filtration systems, Chemical Biological Radiological Bag in/Bag Out (CBR BIBO) systems, and isolation barrier systems.

Currently, the manufacturer provides these systems to protect against airborne hazards to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Armed Forces, Department of Energy (DOE), semiconductor manufacturers, and several biotech firms engaged in research with bacteria, viruses, chemical warfare agents, nuclear processing, and other toxic contaminants.

The systems are used to contain microorganisms and other contaminents in specific hazardous environments. Flanders also says that the systems can provide key components for “hardening” buildings against bioterrorist attacks using airborne biological weapons, although historically the products have been viewed as too expensive for commercial use.
