Yes, restrictions are lifted and it’s time to step out of our homes. However, of the many lessons Covid-19 has taught us, one is our heightened awareness of the air we breathe in, that within it exists unseen attackers capable of shutting our body systems down if we expose ourselves to them unguardedly.
Indeed, besides protecting ourselves adequately with face masks and hand sanitisers, we should be selective of the places we visit. As SARS-CoV-2 is already proven to be airborne, and as such, easily transmitted especially within confined spaces with poor air circulation and bad indoor air quality, we have to ensure the malls, restaurants, sports centres, sales galleries and such others are safe.
As such, leading property developer, S P Setia Berhad is blazing trails by being one of the firsts in the country to start the initiative termed – “Freedom Bubble”, a Covid-19 safe zone where fully vaccinated visitors will be served by fully vaccinated employees. That includes sales personnel, customer service representatives, security guards and cleaners. This is on top of strict adherence to standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the authorities.
Going one step further, all S P Setia’s Freedom Bubbles are fully equipped with Panasonic’s patented Panasonic Nanoe™ X Generator to ensure the indoor air quality is always well taken care of. As of October 2021, a total of 452 units of Panasonic Nanoe™ X Generator has been installed in all of its 29 sales galleries nationwide besides Setia’s first Freedom Bubble at D’Network@Setia Eco Park, an F&B hub in Shah Alam, Selangor.
The Panasonic Nanoe™ X Generator system is based on a breakthrough technology by Panasonic that synthetically reproduces hydroxyl radical, an air-cleaning agent found naturally in fresh outdoor air. The system can generate 4.8 trillions of hydroxyl radicals per second to effectively inhibit organic pollutants within indoor settings.
Texcell, a global research organisation sited in France has certified that the Nanoe™ X is capable of inhibiting over 99.99% of the SARS-CoV-2 activity in a 45L chamber test space within two hours.
With the recognition from Texcell, it means that Panasonic’s range of air quality solutions, such as Panasonic Air-e (air purifier) equipped with Nanoe™ X technology, are able to help reduce the infection risk of the highly contagious coronavirus.

“Pandemics can alter our lifestyle and approach to personal hygiene. Therefore, to re-establish trust and confidence with our buyers, Setia’s Freedom Bubbles will have a cleaner, germ-ridden environment.
While S P Setia has been active on its digitalisation path, the company sees value in its brick-and-mortar sales galleries and will ensure buyers continue to have either option.
Peace of mind now holds a greater value because with less worry, our buyers can have clarity in making one of the biggest decisions in their lives, purchasing a property. We are at the end of the tunnel and the economy is on track for a recovery. We therefore see this collaboration with Panasonic Malaysia as a timely one as S P Setia reopens our doors to our buyers.”
**Seeing the need for a cleaner environment for its buyers, S P Setia will present its buyers with a free unit of the Panasonic Nanoe™ Air Purifier for selected properties purchased from Oct 1, 2021 until Nov 30, 2021 (T&Cs apply).
