R-Zero is a biosafety company making hospital-grade UV-C disinfection technology financially accessible to schools for the first time. Interestingly, UV-C light has been used to disinfect surfaces and the air for over 100 years and it is the gold standard in hospitals today, proven to reduce the incidences of hospital acquired infections (HAIs) by up to 93%. However, until recently, this technology has been cost-prohibitive to organizations outside of hospitals.

R-Zero is a new Allied Member dedicated to NJASA’s mission of supporting school leaders across the state of New Jersey. Their product can play an important role in keeping educators, staff, and students safe through COVID-19 and beyond. 
R-Zero Arc: Designed for dynamic education environments
R-Zero’s hospital-grade UV-C device, Arc, provides a critical layer of added protection to school facilities, making them safer for students and staff.
  • UV-C is chemical-free and safe to use around all food, toys and equipment.

  • Arc is extremely labor-efficient and cuts 20-30% off of the time to disinfect a classroom.

  • Each cycle requires less than two minutes of touch time, saving significant time compared to other disinfection methods, and allowing custodial teams to maintain optimum levels of productivity - running a UV cycle in one classroom, while moving on to the next.

  • With built-in LTE connectivity, Arc also enables school leadership to track usage and compliance via a personalized dashboard, giving visibility to a historically invisible process for the first time.
Arc is currently available with 1-2 week lead times and is eligible for CARES Act funding. R-Zero is working with several public school districts and was recently named the leading choice for UV-C disinfection in education by Chicago’s Daily Herald.
