Safe Mail Shelter Offers Safer Solution To Mailroom Concerns.Business Editors
FLAT ROCK, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 20, 2001
Polaris International, manufacturers of the Bio-Shelter System have launched another revolutionary new product for the War Against Terrorism, "The Safe Mailroom Shelter."

The increased threat of opening mail as incidences of anthrax anthrax (ăn`thrăks), acute infectious disease of animals that can be secondarily transmitted to humans. It is caused by a bacterium (Bacillus anthracis cases continue to grow is becoming more of a concern to the media, corporations, federal offices and our nation.
The mailroom shelter design is built on the same scientifically proven principles as the Bio-Shelter, with a few unique differences. The mailroom system is comprised of a clear see-through protective barrier manufactured from a specially treated poly material. This barrier helps to contain any possible release of harmful airborne pollutants that the mail handler may come in contact with.
Mail is brought into the shelter for inspection and sorting. The mail handler is required to wear protective gear, respirators, gloves and clothing, as defined by the U.S. Postal Service The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) processes and delivers mail to individuals and businesses within the United States. The service seeks to improve its performance through the development of efficient mail-handling systems and operates its own planning and engineering programs. .

The mail will be individually opened and inspected by the handler on the included specially patented downdraft down·draft

Clean air is brought in to the shelter through strategically placed airflow valves. In the event that a suspicious substance is propelled into the air while the handler is opening and inspecting the mail, the substance is quickly drawn into the table and driven into the specially engineered mailroom shelter air purification system, which is designed to filter and contain the pollutants and the potential threat, until the appropriate hazardous materials authorities can be notified. Now mail can be opened with minimized risk to the person opening the mail.
The Safe Mail Shelter is an exceptionally insightful design. The system is the first of its kind in the world, according to Levy.
"We are not saying it eliminates the risk, but it's part of a good risk reduction strategy," Levy said.

Regarding chemical agents, carbon filters absorb many toxic compounds, however, they are not routinely tested for a particular bio-terrorist chemical.
In conclusion, the Safe Mail Shelter should provide some level of protection to the user. For further information please contact Robert Levy, 248/891-4511 or call 800/840-5232. Visit http://www.safemailshelter.com
