The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort Uses UV-C Technology to Help Reopen

The Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort has partnered with biosafety company R-Zero, incorporating the company’s hospital-grade UV-C technology into its disinfection protocols to ensure a safe reopening for guests and staff amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Alisal has been using R-Zero’s flagship product, Arc, to disinfect its 73 guest rooms between check-out and check-in, as well as common spaces in the resort. Though The Alisal is currently closed due to the COVID surge in California, it plans to resume use of Arc upon reopening.

Arc is the first hospital-grade, germicidal UV-C system that is both financially and operationally accessible to the mass market. Scientists have known about UV-C’s power to disinfect for decades, but historically, industrial-strength UV-C solutions have been cost-prohibitive for most businesses. Thanks to the work of R-Zero’s designers and engineers, Arc retails for a fraction of the price of traditional units and is available via subscription both direct and online.

In addition to its affordability and efficacy, The Alisal selected Arc for its efficiency and ease of use. Operating the device requires no formal training — the user simply pushes a button and leaves the space for 7 minutes while Arc runs. During that time period, Arc can destroy over 99.99% of pathogens in a standard room. For The Alisal and R-Zero’s other customers across the nation, Arc helps supplement chemical disinfection, which is unreliable and doesn’t address airborne pathogens.

What’s more, Arc distinguishes itself from competitors through its built-in smart device connectivity, which enables businesses to track usage and compliance — establishing credibility with staff and patrons alike.

“Arc has been a game-changer in helping us navigate a safe reopening for guests and staff,” says Kathleen Cochran, general manager of The Alisal. “Unlike chemical-disinfection, UV-C light is eco-friendly, fast, and kills pathogens in the air. But when I looked into purchasing UV-C units, every option was cost prohibitive — until I found R-Zero’s Arc. And uniquely, Arc allows us to track usage data, giving us added clarity and peace-of-mind around the disinfection process. It’s more important than ever to rebuild trust with patrons and attract new ones. Arc helps us do both.”

R-Zero’s partnership with The Alisal is just one example of the company’s traction in the hospitality industry and beyond. R-Zero’s work with Santa Barbara restaurant The Lark has been prominently featured in regional media, and Forbes recently published an article highlighting how R-Zero booked $5 million in sales in 90 days alone.

About R-Zero: R-Zero is the first biosafety company dedicated to making all common spaces safer and clinically clean. Founded to help organizations protect what matters most, R-Zero’s suite of hospital-grade technologies and science-backed protocols reduces the transmission of pathogens and the diseases they cause — from the coronavirus to the common cold. https://rzero.com.
