MACE Virtual Labs’ recent partnership with Cleanbox Technology, Inc. brings state-of-the-art sanitation to the world of virtual reality. VR uses increasingly center on shared devices and multi-user experiences, such as enterprise and military training, education and arcades. This has made the demand for superb hygiene all the more pressing. Organizations considering VR technology commonly raise concerns around the cleanliness of shared devices; MACE’s partnership with Cleanbox solves this problem.

This partnership unites MACE - a brand that matches organizations with the hardware, software and instruction they need to build the right virtual reality solution - with Cleanbox, a brand that offers hospital-grade, decontamination of VR headsets and other devices. As a result, MACE’s customized virtual reality packages now benefit from Cleanbox’s 99.999% disinfection guarantee.

“This is a wonderful collaboration, as MACE also does business with Fortune 50 companies, nonprofits, and educational organizations and our products are well established in those industries," says Amy Hedrick, CEO & Co-founder of Cleanbox. "It’s going to be a wonderful partnership in VR and AR and we are looking forward to working together on future endeavors.”

Amid the pandemic, theirs is a timely partnership that helps assure the safety and health of the many organizations looking to incorporate VR into their training, marketing, sales or products in the near future. Multi-user experiences have become commonplace in virtual reality, with users such as trainees, students and soldiers sharing head-mounted devices, gloves, suits and more. Ineffective cleaning and decontamination of these devices could foreseeably put users at risk of passing contagions to one another, with Sars-CoV-2 being the most concerning. Cleanbox’s proprietary UVC cleaning system has been proven to kill Sars-CoV-2 in a university biohazard laboratory.

As both brands continue to make in-roads in the education, military and healthcare spaces, they can offer peace of mind where hygiene is concerned, as Cleanbox meets military and hospital standards alike. Neither UVC wands nor bulbs can accomplish what Cleanbox’s smart tech, overlapping light technology can. Their engineering takes into account distance to surface, wavelength and time to produce shadow-free and even decontamination.

Furthermore, MACE’s clientele will have the option to lease or finance these devices, ensuring that budget is not a barrier to good hygiene. “Our partnership creates an offering no one else can match.” Says Edgar Acosta, Managing Partner at MACE. He adds, “I recognized Cleanbox as the best solution for the high-tech products we sell. More and more groups are going to be using these devices, so hygiene is a problem that needs to be addressed, and they do it best.”
