New Products And Procedures For Cleaning, Disinfecting, Sanitizing

As a reminder, we deep cleaned and sanitize every part of the gyms from equipment, locker rooms, all surfaces, door handles, floors, and everything in between on a regular basis. Our employees work hard to keep the gym a safe and clean environment for you.

  • We have ordered new touch-less hand sanitizing dispensers and Increased the number of hand sanitizers units throughout the gym.
  • Ordered Wash Guard, a new hand sanitizer foam that will give you up to 4 hours of protection. Located at the main entrance.
  • Added more gym wipe canisters (anti-bacterial/virus wipes) and made them available everywhere.
  • Ordered and installed the AirPHX system, this item is doing the heavy lifting throughout the club. Killing and sanitizing 24/7. This machine uses reactive oxygen and gas-phase hydrogen peroxide to continuously sanitize the air, and every surface the air touches. This effectively reduces all air and surface pathogens, to hospital standards throughout the entire club.
  • Wash Guard Electrostatic Surface Cleaner which kills 99% of germs for up to 28 days. We will spray on all gym equipment and facility surfaces on a regular schedule.
  • Ordered Victory electrostatic sanitizer unit. This is the best delivery system to deliver the Wash Guard Electrostatic Surface Cleaner. Will help ensure all equipment touch points have been treated and sanitized
  • Added Nanoseptic self-cleaning products to various touchpoints throughout our facilities. Powered by light, NanoSeptic surfaces utilize mineral nano-crystals which create a powerful oxidation reaction. Working 24/7, the surface continually oxidizes organic contaminants. Unlike traditional disinfectants and cleaners, the NanoSeptic surface uses no poisons, heavy metals, or chemicals, and nothing is released from the surface since the nano-crystals are molecularly bonded to the material.

AirPHX System Installed to Eliminate Coronavirus, Influenza, and 30+ Other Common Viruses and Bacteria

With great pleasure we are announcing that DHF has gone beyond normal measures and has installed the AirPHX system for the safety and health of everyone at DHF. This device kills the Coronavirus and many other viruses and germs, both in the air and on all surfaces.This machine uses reactive oxygen and gas-phase hydrogen peroxide to continuously sanitize the air, and every surface the air touches. This effectively reduces all air and surface pathogens, to hospital standards, throughout the entire club.
The health and welfare of our members is, and always has been, of paramount importance. That is why, even before the Coronavirus, DHF was taking strides in innovating new ways to lead the industry in club hygiene. All facilities have workout equipment. Denver Health & Fitness is proud to tell members that they have AirPHX technology protecting them during their workouts. We hope that along with the health and safety this brings our club, that it also brings you peace of mind during your next workout.
DHF Is Winning the War on Germs
Finally a quick, and easy solution to the incessant odors and bacterial incursion that are the bane of athletic spaces. A game changer, AirPHX® (pronounced air-fix) has been installed at DHF. AirPHX eliminates bacteria, viruses and other harmful organisms and the odors they cause throughout the facility — in the air and on surfaces including: equipment, turf, rubber, foam, and tile. Bacteria, MRSA, C.DIFF, mold, Staph, athlete’s foot fungus, and norovirus — virtually eliminated in less than 60 minutes with the flip of a switch. In fact, testing of facilities before and after installation of AirPHX demonstrates reductions of airborne and surface germs >95%, even on hard to clean turf.
How does the AirPHX technology work?
AirPHX technology generates clean air using a small wall mounted device that plugs into an ordinary outlet. Once mounted and the timer is set, the unit runs quietly using very little electricity. A “cold plasma” reactor kills bad SURFACE and AIRBORNE organisms organically and continuously, eliminating these bad organisms and odors within the facility, even on hard to clean surfaces. One unit will treat up to 150,000 cubic feet, achieving better than hospital grade levels of cleanliness. And when the clean air circulates thru HVAC systems, AirPHX produces benefits throughout the entire building!

Effective treatment of the AirPHX unit:

    • All surfaces exposed to the air
    • Wrestling mats
    • Bands and Straps
    • Flooring, including Turf
    • Lifting bars
    • Fitness and Cardio Equipment
    •  Free Weights
    • All ambient air in the space

What does it eliminate?

    • Coronavirus (within 2 hours of contact)
    • Odors
    • Influenza (flu)
    • Norovirus
    • MRSA and Staph
    • Contagious skin infections
    • Athletes foot
    • Over 30 common Bacteria and Viruses and the odors they cause
      AirPHX is Chemical-Free and 100% Organic
