  • The Ohio Salon Association through American Benefit Specialist has partnered with another UV-C manufacturer to enhance our clientele health and safety from COVID-19 cross contamination, Introducing EVA from FINSEN.
     
    The EVA is the world’s first automated UVC air sterilizer. This device is perfect for any situation dealing with contaminated air, especially within proximity. The EVA is EPA certified to remove bacteria and viruses from the air, within a 20 square meter radius. Designed to only sterilize the air deactivating any dangerous airborne pathogens and bacteria that get pulled into the EVA with its powerful turbine fan. What makes the EVA more impressive is its low maintenance only needed to replace the bulb every 5 to 8 months. Don’t forget when you use the EVA you never need to replace any contaminated HEPA air filters because there are none. Finsen Light designers decided to make a fully automated UVC air sterilizer that require you to ever get your hands dirty.
