What is FORBES CORONAGUARD POWERED BY SHYCOCAN & What does it do?  

Coronaguard is a revolutionary virulence prevention device that attenuates & disables 99.9% of corona family of viruses and prevents it’s spread in the enclosed spaces.

How does it work?  

The innovative technology ‘physically attenuates’ the homing mechanism on the virus and prevents infectivity. The technology is based on well-known principles of physics “Photon Mediated Electron Emission” (PMEE) that disables the S protein in the virus so that it cannot attach itself to human cells, thus preventing the infectivity.

Does it Kill Coronavirus?  

FORBES CORONAGUARD POWERED BY SHYCOCAN attenuates the corona family of viruses. It simply disables it, from attaching and infecting the host cells.

How many hours should I keep it on? What is the electricity consumption?  

The device is designed for continuous use, it is recommended to be ON for continuous protection. The power consumption is 30 W.

Does it use any chemicals?  

The CORONAGUARD does not use any chemicals. It does not ionize the air nor does it produce any ozone.

What types of performance efficacy test this product has undergone?  

This product has been tested for its virucidal performance efficacy in India & international laboratories. The test results prove that the virucidal efficiency is more than 99.9% on corona family of viruses using suitable surrogate viruses as per USEPA recommendations.

What kind of places Coronaguard can be installed?  

The device can be safely deployed in all environments inhabited by people, be it very large or small enclosed spaces. Coronaguard helps create 'safe zones' in homes, health care facilities, grocery and essential stores, restaurants & hotels, schools, colleges, places of worship, residential, corporate, industrial and sporting environments.

How does one install the product, do we require a demo to install this product?  

The product comes with a wall mounting bracket which is user friendly to install.

What are the variants available? Should I install one in each room? 

The Coronaguard is currently available in one variant, which covers 1,000 Sq. Ft (10,000 Cubic ft). If the rooms are separated by partition / walls, you need to have separate units for each room.

How will I know if the Coronaguard is working?  

The product has a Green indicator lamp in the front, this is an indication that the product is working to create safe zones in the application area.

Whether Coronaguard can be used as a sterilizer to disinfect the household items / articles?  

No, the Coronaguard attenuates only the corona family of viruses in the closed rooms. It’s not air sterilizer to disinfect other microbial contaminations if any.

Is there any maintenance? Is there any servicing required?  

This product is a Plug & Play product with no consumable to replace. Hence there’s no service required, and it is maintenance free. However, the products should be cleaned regularly of any dust deposition on the fan or grilles that may accumulate over a period.

Is there any warranty on the product?  

The Coronaguard shall be warranted against manufacturing defects and workmanship for one year from the date of purchase. Please refer to the terms of warranty for more clarity.

What is the difference between Coronaguard and an air purifier?  

The Coronaguard attenuates only the corona family of viruses in the enclosed rooms. The air purifier purifies the indoor air – and removes the particulate matters, bad odor and the air borne microorganisms depending on the product configuration. Air Purifier depends on the air to be circulated through it for purification while Coronaguard can attenuate the corona family of viruses directly on the spot in the room.

Will this product stain my walls?  

No, this product shall leave no stains on your walls.

Will it be able to kill COVID-19 if someone infected is in the room and if the person sneezes/coughs?  

It does not kill coronavirus. It attenuates/disables the virus by neutralizing the charges in the S-protein.

There have been several claims of coronavirus cures and preventions. Many of them have been found to be fake. Why should anyone trust this device?  

Eureka Forbes has been at the forefront of India’s health efforts over the past 38 years, becoming synonymous with clean drinking water and cleaning solutions. We have been, over the years, protecting Indians from harmful bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. So, there is a trust associated with our name. This product has been through rigorous testing and the test reports prove the efficacy of the device beyond any doubt.
