( - MOUNT ROYAL, QUÉBEC – Sani Sport, the leader in sports equipment sanitation technology, offers athletes a cost-effective solution to significantly reduce exposure to harmful and dangerous bacteria. As increased epidemics and flu outbreaks occur, it is even more important to improve sanitary practices, especially among activities that focus on group interaction or shared equipment.

In recent years, professional and amateur athletes alike have been assaulted by bacteria like the invisible superbug MRSA (methicillin-resistant S. aureus), a bacterium responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections in humans. Athletes are particularly susceptible to contracting infections due to the nature of the sports industry, which includes hands-on contact between players, close proximity among teammates, and inadequate personal hygiene in relation to dedicated cleaning and maintenance of sports equipment. Sani Sport helps to decrease this risk by directly attacking the bacteria and germs harboring in sports equipment, while also working to remove odors and extend the life of the equipment.

“Our patented sanitization process was a result of customers inquiring how to get rid of the smell in their hockey gear. The answer was simple— address the bacteria, kill the smell,” said Sani Sport Founder and President Steve Silver. “It is a simple and effective way to help reduce the spread of germs caused by bacteria.”

Sani Sport works by vaporizing unwanted harmful micro-organisms and eliminating odors. Multiple sports equipment pieces, including pads, skates, helmets, and jerseys can be placed on the grill shelving inside the stainless steel Sani Sport decontamination chamber. An ozone generator floods the chamber with photon bombarded oxygen (ozone) for 12 minutes while counter rotating fans circulate the air to ensure maximum penetration of equipment. The last four minutes of the sanitation process engages the patented Sani Sport spray mister to coat the equipment with a disinfectant.

Sani Sport has a 97 percent satisfaction rate among current users. It is the only technology in the industry with an independent safety certification from Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), the largest independent product testing organization in the world.
