RENO, NV (KOLO) - Things might smell a bit differently next time you visit the Grand Sierra Resort.
The resort and casino has implemented a new Plasma Air smoke and odor control system, something the GSR says is the first of its kind in northern Nevada. According to the resort, the system uses 120 Plasma Air 50 Series ionizers to neutralize the air on the gaming floor and throughout the facility.
“As we have invested more than $200 million over the last eight years, the guest experience has remained of the utmost importance,” said Shannon Keel, general manager for GSR. “This new system will raise the level of air quality and guest comfort throughout the resort and we are proud to work with Plasma Air to bring this new technology to the region.”
In addition to neutralizing odors, the resort says the system reduces smoke particulate by more than 93 percent, reduces total volatile organic compounds by more than 98 percent and reduces bacteria and viruses by 99.9 percent.
