NFL Lawsuit Raises New Awareness to Indoor Air Quality

July 26, 2010

FAIRFIELD, Conn., July 26 /PRNewswire/ — Former NFL center LeCharles Bentley’s lawsuit against the Cleveland Browns raises new awareness and concerns about air quality in professional sports training facilities, locker room and stadiums, says Steve Levine, President and CEO of AtmosAir Solutions.

Bentley sued the Browns on July 22nd over a career-ending staph infection he says he contracted at the team’s training facility.

AtmosAir Solutions of Fairfield provides bi-polar ionization air purification products that significantly reduces mold, dust, odors, controls bacteria and the spread of airborne viruses, and reduces airborne particles and germs that get past normal ventilation and filtration systems in professional sports facilities, homes and businesses.

“Assuring NFL facilities have clean air is not only crucial for a player’s health, but when a team spends millions of dollars on its athletes, it’s just a very smart way to protect your investment,” says Levine, whose company already works with the Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs.

Staph infections at athletic training facilities are often traced to contact with bacteria. Treating surfaces is generally temporary. A more permanent fix is installing air purification ionization systems, like those developed and installed by AtmosAir. They rid the root of these infections over extended time and help insure athletes remain healthy and germ free.

The AtmosAir bi-polar system (which can be integrated into HVAC systems in homes and buildings or used as standalone portable units) lets air pass through a patented ionization tube, which energizes the air to form bi-polar (or positive and negative) air ions. The airflow then distributes the ions into all of the spaces served by the duct system. There’s no continual maintenance, no filters to keep changing or collector cells to constantly clean. The only maintenance required in most cases is a once yearly replacement of the ionization tube.

Bentley’s attorney, Shannon Polk, said the lawsuit filed in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court seeks at least $25,000 in damages for alleged fraud and negligent misrepresentation. Polk said Bentley nearly died from the infection while he was rehabbing from a knee injury. The Browns declined to comment.

The Chicago Cubs minor league facility at Fitch Park in Mesa, AZ. recently installed an AtmosAir system and has reported positive results.
