Desk and ceiling fans
To minimise the spread of coronavirus, we only recommend using desk and ceiling fans if the building or room is well ventilated. If you’re not sure whether your ventilation space is adequate or not, you should look for areas where there is no mechanical or natural ventilation – including windows and vents.
It’s also worth using carbon dioxide (CO2) monitors to identify the CO2 levels to decide if the ventilation is up to scratch or not. Or for a slightly easier solution, identify areas that smell bad or feel stuffy.
UVC air sterilisers
If you’re looking for a solution to your ventilation and air conditioning needs during Covid-19, a UVC air steriliser/filtration unit is an ideal investment. Recognised by the HSE as the best form of protection against airborne transmission, this innovative technology utilises ultraviolet (UVC) to sterilise ambient air – killing bacteria, mould, yeast and viruses (including Covid-19).
A highly efficient UVC-based device, such as the Sterilair Pro UVC air steriliser, is the perfect solution and is particularly effective in reducing the spread of coronavirus in poorly ventilated areas.
