Scaffolding supplier offers sheeting that ‘eats’ pollution


BLC Construction Supplies is offering its customers ReActivair – a special coating that eats pollution that can be used for a wide range of scaffold sheeting applications.

ReActivair, the pollution-eating speciality coating is made from naturally occurring materials that improves air quality by using energy from natural sunlight to break down harmful pollutants and odour molecules in the air.

When sunlight hits the ReActivair coating, it prompts a series of reactions taking humidity and oxygen from the air turning them into cleaning agents that scrub the air of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and Nitrious oxides (NOx), also known as smog.

Bristol-based BLC Construction Supplies say It can be used on a wide range of sheeting applications like Building wraps, Scaffold sheeting, Netting and Rail and Roadside billboards.

Results from tests at Sheffield University show 1m2 of coated material can take out approx 2g of NOx per day. As an example, just 1 roll of 2m x 45m scaffold sheeting (c.90m2) coated completely with ReactivAir, will potentially remove the pollution created by 250 cars, every week.
