ALP System Active

Where, when and why

The air we breathe conveys pathogens. This problem concerns people’s health as well as the quality of products that are packed, the rigorous hygiene in the laboratories and in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, micro-electronic industries or drug production sites. The ductwork is one of the places where the dangerous microorganisms grow: the particulate inside the ductworks is an active bed for bacteria, microbes and virus. The bacteriostatic surface of the panel does not make it an active element able to kill pathogens. ALP has provided something more, it has realized the ductwork that protects the health.


The starting point is an exclusive technology, patented by ALP: ALPactive Antimicrobial. A solution based on the antimicrobial action of a natural principle, the silver ions incorporated into the aluminium surface of the panel. In normal conditions of humidity the silver ions are released in the air and they destroy the pathogens thanks to the 3Modal action:

  • They damage the cell wall of the microbe
  • They interrupt their breathing
  • They arrest their reproduction.

The Alp System Active panel and all the accessories are treated with the ALPactive compound, with an effective reduction of 99,9999% against many families of pathogens, such as Legionella Pneumophilia, Escherichia Coli, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Staphylococcus Aureus, Candida Albicans, Aspergilus Niger, Salmonella Choleraesuis and Listeria Monocytogenes.


After a long scientific experimentation ALPactive Antimicrobial has been acknowledged by scientific bodies and certified by primary institutions: scientific studies, awards and experimentations conducted by the Ministry of Health have certified the effectiveness of this technology. The ductwork fabricated by using Alp System Active materials is:

  • Antimicrobial → more safe: the air coming from the ductwork has a microbial load equal to less than 77,23% in comparison with the air coming from a traditional ductwork
  • Preventive → ideal for indoor applications: the antimicrobial action assures the microbiological quality of the air also in such particular milieus like operating theatres, clearing rooms and so on…
  • Certified → guaranteed: after the long scientific experimentation carried out on real installations in actual working conditions ALP is allowed to grant the effectiveness of the antimicrobial action for 10 years
  • Light → more suitable: the ductwork uses the technical principles of Alp System panel, this means it is easy to move, to handle, to install and to maintain
  • Efficient → cheaper: pre-insulation, low thermal conductivity and air tightness make the panel an active element for the health and for energy saving.
