Pure Air Control Services, a nationally recognized indoor air quality firm in Clearwater, recently completed an IAQ project that helped fans and hockey players at the Stanley Cup Playoffs breathe easy at Tampa Bay’s Amalie Arena.

With more and more people being vaccinated, sports arenas across the nation have been allowing fans to attend events at full capacity. Leading sports arenas like Amalie Arena have been upgrading their indoor air systems to safeguard the health of athletes, performers, and fans.

Amalie arena, located in Tampa Bay, seats 21,500 people. Seven in-room AeraMax multi-stage HEPA air purification units from Building Health Check, procured through Pure Air Control Services’ partnership with Tampa Bay Trane, were installed in the arena’s home team and away team facilities. Meanwhile, AeraMax units procured through Pure Air Control Services were installed throughout the back of house in all smaller spaces that may have multiple occupants. These include the spaces utilized by touring artists, the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the NBA’s Toronto Raptors.

The concourses and seating bowl are too expansive to be impacted by the filtration units. Instead, they are relying on precautions like increased outside air, filter sizing, and other technology.

The project was completed just in time for the World Champion Tampa Bay Lighting to participate in the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup Playoffs. During the start of the NBA season, the Toronto Raptors also were able to enjoy the benefits of good IAQ at Amalie Arena. Alan Wozniak, president and CEO of Pure Air Control Services, said the upgrades will give athletes, performers and fans confidence in knowing they are at one of the cleanest facilities in the nation.
