CIBSE - Emerging from Lockdown

Through the challenging times we all have faced over the last 18 months, many of us have now returned to office based work. However, some of us still feel uncomfortable and rightly so; COVID-19 is an airborne virus and spreads primarily in indoor shared spaces. How long can you work remotely? How long are you willing to wear a mask at work? COVID-19 is still a concern in your return to office work, but there are various different pathogens you can find in the office for instance such as colds and flu’s. Not just in the air, but areas such as your door handles and printers tend to have the highest concentrations of germs, so this is another risk of transmission.

Now at UVTech-Hygienics we want everyone to include UV-C in their cleaning methods as it is a more innovative and effective way of disinfecting. Furthermore, it can help reduce your fear of returning to office work as UV-C inactives 99.9% of pathogens. This has been proven in case studies around the world to be one the most successful disinfection techniques. UVC has been used over the last 70 years to fight the spread of infections such as measles, influenza and tuberculosis. The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) have reported that “Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of whole room UV-C exposure devices for healthcare environments intended to disinfect the air and accessible surfaces in the room. Such devices can either be placed in a specific room location for a period of time, or they can be robotic units that move around the environment to minimize shadow effects”.

UVTech-Hygienics have become partners with lighting giants Signify (formerly known as Philips Lighting). This partnership allows us to bring the highest quality UV-C lighting to our clients to fulfil our mission of creating safer spaces for us all. UVTech-Hygienics and Phillips have various products like for instance the new portable purifier.. This unit is a powerful and effective way to disinfect circulating air. It draws air into the unit where UV-C radiation inactivates up to 90% of microorganisms in 80 m3 within just 1 hour.

UVTech-Hygienics have various products which can help you return to office work and make you feel safe.
