Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce Joins Fight against Covid-19

 

Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce has recently purchased new equipment to keep its customers and staff safe from viruses such as Covid-19.

Studies show that pathogens, including the Covid-19 virus, often transmit through the air in tiny, aerosolised droplets, which is then breathed in. To significantly reduce the risk of new infections, air purification based on UV-C is a most effective method. The Chamber has secured a number of these ultraviolet air purification units which will be used to continuously purify the air especially in the areas frequented by the public. This air purifier is specifically designed to target Covid-19 and was supplied by LED-UK Lighting Ltd., an Eastbourne based company and will help to achieve a biologically safe building.

Ventilation systems are often the pathways of bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. Polluted air moves between rooms increasing the risk of infection. The purchase and installation of the UV-C air disinfection systems significantly reduce the risk of infection and reduce the level of discomfort caused by the respiratory system of people in the rooms.

In addition to the air purification units, the Eastbourne Chamber has also purchased from LED-UK Lighting, a number of ultraviolet disinfectant lamps. Utilising ultraviolet rays, the lamps kills the DNA of viruses such as COVID-19, SARS and influenza along with bacteria, pathogens. These disinfectant lamps can sterilize a room within minutes and will be use in conjunction with the ultraviolet air purifiers to ensure all that enter their officers are safe.

The UV-C disinfection technology kills 99.99% of all known viruses (including COVID-19), bacteria, pathogens, and micro-organisms, all in a matter of minutes.

LED-UK Lighting Ltd is a UK supplier of UV-C disinfection technology and installer of LED lights and components and is a member of the Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce.
