The Continuing Importance of UV-C Sanitisation

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of his roadmap plan to ease lockdown restrictions last week, the continuing importance of sanitisation is becoming increasingly clear, especially for sectors that are opening within the first two steps.

In certain sectors, it might be more efficient to use UV-C sanitisation systems, rather than the more traditional liquid forms. UV-C Sanitisation systems are non-toxic and contain no harsh chemicals or alcohols, however, are still extremely effective at killing 99.99% of all COVID-19, VRE, MRSA and other deadly microorganisms and pathogens without immunities. When used correctly, UV-C disinfection systems are 100% safe.

Westminster’s UV-C Sanitisation Systems are available as either static or portable, and so can be tailored to suit particular establishments. They also do not require the frequent refills that traditional liquid disinfectants do, and do not need large numbers of manpower to disinfect large areas.

Westminster supply two different types of UV Sanitisers. Our UV Air Sanitisers use shielded UV-C lamps and are ideal for the safe sterilisation of air in areas where people are constantly present. These stations would be perfect to use in the hospitality industry when this section reopens as part of the Government’s Coronavirus road map.

Westminster’s UV Surface Sanitisers use visible UV-C lamps that are operated on a timer. These systems are suitable for use in areas that require quick, efficient disinfection between the presence of people, such as in hotel bedrooms, transport hubs and toilets. The surface sanitisers have a motion sensor and will shut down if they detect a person present. These systems often sound an alarm to inform the operator that the disinfection cycle will need to be restarted when no people are present.
