Viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms spread through the air in the form of tiny water droplets known as aerosols. They can live there for a long time and pass from host to host. The risk is particularly high in rooms with large numbers of people, such as offices, hospitals, gyms or school classrooms. These rooms are often poorly ventilated or do not have central ventilation and the build-up of CO2 and humidity compounds the problem further. However, having central ventilation does not mean that your air will be clean and purified. Central ventilation without an air-purifying system or one that is poorly maintained, creates ideal conditions for the spread of viruses and bacteria throughout the whole building.
UV-C light is very effective against viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Especially viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 virus and its mutations which are easily destroyed by it. SARS Coronavirus has only a thin layer of lipid (fat) which UV-C light penetrates easily, instantly destroying the virus. This gives people in the room or building an extra level of protection and peace of mind.
Our customer, who operates their business in a multi-storey building in the centre of London with hundreds of employees, contacted us to provide a safer and healthier working environment for their employees and customers to avoid absenteeism and inspire the confidence in their employees to safely work in the offices.
After our site visit, we started the 2-week trial period by placing UV air purifiers at designated points such as meeting rooms, common areas and toilets. After the trial period, we calculated the required amount of UV-C air purification needed to create a safe environment throughout the building and in a short period of time completed the installation of our wall-mounted devices by choosing 77 installation points that we determined with our customer.
Now their employees breathe air free from bacteria and viruses (and other pollutants), without noticing the presence of the devices. Our UV Air Purifiers are so quiet (36 dB) that people are not even aware that the devices are working. Also the air purification process with UV-C light is odourless and the lamps are installed in such a way that people are not exposed to any risk.
