As businesses look to return after the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, a new off-the-shelf product that can sterilise a vehicle interior in a matter of minutes is set to revolutionise the fleet, vehicle rental and used car trade.
Sany Car is a portable device that uses ozone gas to sanitise vehicles in minutes, with a cost per treatment as low as £0.93 per vehicle. Used by businesses across Europe and endorsed by many car manufacturers, it has the backing of the Red Cross as well as national police forces and authorities.
Manufactured by a company called Sanity System and offered in the UK by vehicle history experts MotorCheck it is a single-box solution that doesn’t require any specialist training or the use of protective clothing. Employing ozone gas to envelope the vehicle’s interior, every surface is treated in a uniform procedure.
Powered by a standard 13-amp or car cigarette lighter socket, it can be placed inside any vehicle and can complete the sterilisation to a medical grade standard within 22 to 44 minutes depending on size.
The medical grade device generates a specifically calibrated amount of ozone to eradicate bacteria, viruses and other pathogens. Once the operation cycle has been completed the unit reprocesses the ozone back into oxygen so the vehicle can be used immediately. The nature of the treatment means that there is no chemical residue, and because the amount of ozone used is carefully measured, it will not damage the vehicle’s fabrics, trim or electrics.
