Miami-based Shores Global has introduced Spry Therapeutics Pneumapure filter into its cruise furniture and fabrics portfolio, to stop the spread of bacteria and viruses.

The clinically proven filtered solution – created by Spry Therapeutics, headquartered in New York – has hermetically sealed seams that wrap around soft goods to prevent superbugs and pathogens as small as .02 microns from entering or exiting.

Hazardous surfaces

Pneumapure is suitable for bedding, mattresses, lounge furniture and seat cushions amongst other soft surfaces that can otherwise act as reservoirs for bacteria. 

‘It is our mission to help not only the cruise industry, but hospitality as a whole, understand and address the dangers of soft surfaces and offer effective and affordable alternatives to keep guests and staff safe,’ says Bill Purdy, ceo and co-founder of Spry.


‘Through its relationship with Spry, Shores is the first marine supplier to offer a truly clean alternative to soft surfaces, protecting guests and crew,’ says Susan Sadolin, owner and ceo of Shores Global. 

'We are thrilled to be able to offer the cruise industry such an essential component to guest safety that will not only minimize the spread of germs onboard, but also provide guests with peace of mind as travel picks up again.’
