    Customer challenge

     

    Schools face a major challenge in providing qualitative education in safe and engaging classrooms where new social health standards apply. Areas where many people congregate must be safe and as virus-free as possible. By opting for UV-C disinfection lighting, schools go further than well-known measures, such as frequent ventilation, which often proves to be partially effective or economically unfeasible. Intervention in treating the air could be the best approach in keeping viruses as SARS-CoV-2 and seasonal flu away.

    The solution

     

    Philips UV-C upper air disinfection lighting guarantees an almost complete, fast disinfection of the air in any room. By means of natural convection or mechanical ventilation, the air flows to the top layer in the room. Here the air comes into contact with disinfecting UV-C light, after which it mixes again with the air in the lower parts of the room. It offers students and staff extra protection in rooms with usually limited ventilation.
