    First gym in the Netherlands with

    UV-C light to disinfect air

    By installing Philips UV-C disinfection upper air, ‘t Klaslokaal is the first gym to disinfect air in workout spaces in the Netherlands.

    In our gym,

    all hygiene and distance

    regulations according to RIVM1 are implemented. I am convinced our UV-C lamps provide a valuable contribution to keeping the air in the upper sections of our workout spaces disinfected. You work out in a disinfected room and we are the first to introduce this in the Netherlands. I believe that aerosols are a big part of the problem and I want to be ‘avant-garde’, to be part of the solution. And if the second wave will arrives, we are ready for it."1

    Customer challenge

     

    ‘t Klaslokaal is a gym school based in Bloemendaal, the Netherlands. When the COVID-19 pandemic kicked in and the lockdown was announced, the owner Toby Timmers had to quickly adapt and think of new ways to avoid personal bankruptcy. Despite all the efforts and adjustments, including aerobics lessons via Zoom and lessons in the parking lot, the business was suffering. He had to close his exclusive women’s gym and adapt.

    The right lighting

     

    Being an entrepreneur, Timmers reinvented himself and developed a new concept: a disinfected gym, where one can easily exercise at a 1.5 m distance, without worrying about being too close to others in an indoor space where the virus can spread. Next to excellent ventilation he installed four Philips UV-C disinfection upper air units in his gym, which are designed to be installed on ceilings for the disinfection of air in the upper areas of a room in a wide range of applications.

    The UV-C rays are distributed at device level and above, allowing quiet disinfection of a large volume of air in the upper areas of a room while business activity continues underneath the device’s level. Philips PL-S TUV lamp included: 4x9 W. UV-C light has been proven to effectively deactivate tested pathogens.1
