The Use of UV-C for Disinfecting of Shared Environments

Minimising viral transmission is imperative when it comes to schools, offices, hospitality and other shared public areas remaining open safely. As you may have seen in the media, there is talk around UV-C disinfection being used to sanitise shared equipment and surfaces in order to help pupils in receiving an education which is as close to normal as possible. 

Air sanitisation allows for the neutralising of bacteria, viruses, pollen and odours, delivering clean and sterile air to a room. This is particularly important in smaller commercial environments where several people are coming and going.  

This technology has been in place for many years to effectively sterilise hospitals, operating theatres and surgical instruments and research has found that UV-C kills up to 55% more bacteria than using wipes alone.

Using a unique UV-C light array, portable air sanitisers will have powerful fans to drive the airflow through the decontamination chamber, in order to purify the air in an area.

These portable air sanitisers can be used while people remain in the room as they generates no harmful gases, unlike ozone generators. When used alongside standard practice deep cleaning techniques, it is extremely effective against fighting bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19.
