Up-to-date Covid-19 information for you.
What you need to know…
Based on the assumption that Covid-19 and the required measures to this end are very likely to remain with us in the period ahead, we have set up this page in order to meet your demand for information, especially with regard to Covid-19 topics. We will therefore continue to inform you about our current measures on this page. Just check this website regularly.

+++ SCHAKO air purifier with HEPA filter+++
Corona viruses spread particularly well in poorly ventilated rooms via the so-called aerosols in the air. Air purifiers can help to fight the spread of the corona virus in closed rooms.
In closed rooms, we are surrounded by pollen, dust mites, mould spores, animal dander, smoke, bacteria or viruses – sometimes in high concentrations. All of this can make you sick. Air purifiers are designed to filter such pollutants out of the air. For this, they are fitted with the so-called EPA (“Efficient Particle Filters“) or HEPA filters (“High Efficiency Particle Filters“).
In the fight against the corona virus, the mobile air purifiers are no substitute for keeping a distance, following hygiene rules, wearing a mask or ventilation!
According to the Federal Environment Agency, the mobile air purifiers are only a supporting measure to reduce aerosols in indoor air. According to the Robert Koch Institute, aerosols contaminated with viruses are the main transmitters of COVID-19. Mobile air purifiers do not make ventilation superfluous simply because they cannot exchange the exhaled carbon dioxide for oxygen and remove excess moisture from the room.
With the UC-OH² air purifier from REVEN, the SCHAKO Group has its own air purifier for office and private rooms, hotel rooms and smoking areas in its portfolio. This compact, ready-to-plug-in air purifier is designed to refresh and improve indoor air quality by removing fungal spores, fine dust, pollen, allergens and odour particles. This reduces viral load and thus the risk of infection.
+++ COVID-19 UPDATE +++
dear business partners,
In the meantime, we have gained a lot of experience in dealing with Covid-19 and consider the Corona virus as an omnipresent companion.
As our employees are still not 100% safe from infection, we have taken internal measures to protect ourselves and our operations from an uncontrollable outbreak.
Therefore, the obligatory disinfectant dispensers are placed directly in the entrance area and in many other places in the building.
Work spaces are regularly aired. All meeting rooms are equipped with SCHAKO air cleaners - as described in the previous text block.
We apologise for any delays in processing orders and offers that may occur.
Many thanks and kind regards - stay healthy!
Your SCHAKO team

+++ We are ready for you +++
dear business partners,
The health of our employees and business partners is our top priority. At the same time, we are committed to maintain business operations. We have already implemented a comprehensive package of measures and will continue to take further necessary measures in the future, in order to protect the health of our employees while maintaining our ability to deliver.
We therefore apologise for slightly longer response or reaction times. Thanks to our high vertical range of manufacture and the existing stocks of raw materials and semi-finished parts, the production of the complete product portfolio is currently secured.
We are in regular contact with our suppliers in order to discuss the almost daily changing conditions regarding the ability to deliver. However, despite all the measures introduced, there is always the risk that our supply chains may be affected in the future. To ensure your own supply, we recommend to keep a stock of your SCHAKO standard products.
You can find our daily updated delivery times here...
Should you experience difficulties regarding the reception of material, please inform us in advance to clarify the further procedure, as our storage facilities in the shipping area are limited.
Staying safe through the pandemic.
