In 1977, Mr Gérard BARACHINI set up his own company as a fitter of air conditioning installations, the “Etablissements Gérard BARACHINI” orientated towardsoperating theatres in the health-care sector and high-tech industries such as micro-electronics.
These domains require high conditions of air quality with precise parameters for temperature, relative humidity and filtration.
The installations demand large technical rooms to accommodate the necessary machines.
To respond to these demands and address the growing need, an alternative, more practical system, capable of advantageously replacing traditional installations was to appear.
Gérard BARACHINI sat down at his drawing board to study and develop the concept of a self-contained unit, named the STERIBLOC, presented in May 1980.
Simple to install and easy to use, it readily adapted to all types of installation, ensuring permanent monitoring of required conditions of temperature, filtration and pressurization in the treated areas.
Over the following forty years, the STERIBLOC has continued to evolve with regard both to its capacity and its complexity.
In order to better serve his clients, G BARACHIHI then decided to cease his activity as an installer, and in January 1995 created UNITAIR, a company whose principle activity is the design, manufacture and sale of precision air treatment units for the hospital and pharmaceutical sectors and research laboratories.
UNITAIR went on to develop, assemble and distribute five generations of STERIBLOC and widen its range of products, asserting itself on the extremely selective market for air treatment systems.
Thank you for being ever more numerous to show your confidence in our know-how and the quality of our UNITAIR products.
