Maintaining a healthy and productive workforce is a key element within every business, during recent times this has become more challenging than ever before, with hand sanitising, mask wearing and social distancing all becoming commonplace. Improving fresh airflow can be impossible in some areas, and obviously this will increase heating costs. Confined spaces with recirculated air can quickly become breeding grounds for viruses and bacteria leading to increased sickness and absenteeism.
With the easing of “Plan B” in England, and relaxation of measures elsewhere, millions of people are now being urged to return to offices as advice to work from home is lifted. Unfortunately, it’s now accepted that Coronavirus, alongside the more traditional flu and cold’s will be present ongoing, which is why many companies are looking to futureproof themselves against the risk.
Every day, more businesses are taking the step to install AIRsteril products as part of their drive to encourage the return of staff and get back to a fully productive workplace. We’ve seen record sales of our
Multiflex range products
in January which are the primary choice for open plan offices, even outselling our ever popular
Washrooms remain a key area to consider, as even when there are no odours present in a facility it remains a high contamination area used by multiple individuals so we’d always recommend adding a specialist AIRsteril unit for this area.
"The UK banking centre at Canary Wharf is populated with modern skyscrapers featuring the latest in office building technology. The Credit Suisse UK HeadQuarters allows staff to make the most of windows which has meant that the main building services are sited in the middle of the building. As such with long air ducting, their luxury washrooms struggle to maintain air quality and a clean, fresh smelling work place.
They have installed AIRsteril for odour and infection control in their washrooms. Convinced that the bacteria and viruses that cause infections are killed by AIRsteril, the new offices will feature MF units to ensure staff absenteeism is kept to a minimum."
Marylebone Cricket Club
"On a Test Match day at Lord's there are 25,000 people, mostly males, spending all day watching cricket and drinking. With several visits per person during the day the gents toilets can have up to a 10,000 footfall a day. The staff have had difficulty in clearing the resulting odours. The stainless steel trough urinals in some of the washrooms create added problems.
Just in time for a major Test Match, AIRsteril WRX trial units were installed in two of the major washrooms. After just a few hours, the units had managed to get on top of the smell, then controlled the odours throughout the 5 day match. The facilities staff are very pleased and plan to increase the number of installations before the start of the next cricket season."
