As the aviation industry deals with the effects of the global pandemic, passenger healt has never been so much in focus. As well as working to safeguard health, cabin hygiene measures can also have a vital role to play in making passengers feel more confident about flying. Of all areas on board, it is easy to see why the lavatory would be a key area for passenger anxiety.
International Water Guard (IWG) has been concerned with passenger health since it began using ultraviolet (UV) light to disinfect aircraft water more than 30 years ago. The company cotinues to develop products that promote passenger health. Its new Healthy Lav collection includes various touchless and disinfection technologies, all designed to help business jet OEMs, luxury charter airlines, fractional ownership companies, head-of-state and other corporate jet operators meet the challenges of improving lavatory hygiene.

We are Engaged | We are Leaders
International Water-Guard strongly believes that people are the driving force behind its success. IWG-members and its basic principles (values) are a constant companion and help us to be stronger especially in the current times.
Today we are:
Engaged: We are driven to do our best and Continually improved.
Leaders: We all lead by example; responsibly and with a genuine passion for what we do.
On May 12, 2020, our Director of Quality and Technical Projects Manager, Kris Ramachandran, with IWG’s full support, made an important donation to two major hospitals within our amazing community of Surrey.
1. Peace Arch hospital: We donated 21 boxes of Cliff Energy Bars which were received by Jennifer. Kindly thanking us for the contribution.
2. Surrey Hospital: We were received by Jane Adams (President and CEO of Surrey Hospital Foundation) and the Director of Charitable and Legacy gifts. – to whom we delivered the vast majority of our 56 boxes of Cliff bars to help support their Night Shift nurses who no longer have a cafeteria to eat at and so they provide food baskets to their 24 staff rooms every night. The good news is that they showed Kris their boardroom filled with mostly pop and water. There were not any real solids that they had donations for and so our energy bars would indeed go a long way and they were delighted.
Pictures were taken and they were kind enough to give us a nice letter and a memento. Jane and Yolanda were very interested in our company and surprised and happy to know that we did UV related water disinfection treatment units. Time will tell when a nice opportunity for us could be to invite them over to our facility.
Last but not the least, although it was not planned, our donation was great timing as it was International Nurses Day.
Big thank you to IWG for its constant support and to all IWG-members who kindly help in the preparation of these boxes proven once more that we are stronger together.
Today’s reality demands a new set of parameters and guidelines.
For the aerospace industry, global hygiene standards will be the new starting point and the right way to keep moving forward.
With 30 years of experience and a wide selection of effective and reliable products IWG is leading the industry and facing new realities with absolute confidence.
What is next for passengers? simple, effective, and reliable technology. Featuring our powerful IWG-UVL1. A powerful unit that emits ultraviolet energy within the UV-C spectrum using LED lights.
The unit disinfects 99.99% of the water from viruses and bacteria without the use of chemicals protecting passengers/crew and the aircraft. All pathogens that may be in the water supply will absorb the UV light, making them unable to reproduce scrambling of the genetic code in the nucleus. As a result, drinkable disinfected water. The best part of it all, the unit is installed just right before the spigot of a faucet minimizing any chance of contamination between the waterline and passenger.
