CIBSE and COVID 19

Through the turbulent times we all have faced over the course of the pandemic, many of us have now returned to office based work. However, throughout society there are still levels of uncomfortability and rightly so; COVID-19 is an airborne virus and spreads primarily in indoor shared spaces. How comfortable are you in shared spaces now? COVID-19 is still an ongoing concern for offices, but there are various different pathogens that have always spread around offices such as colds, viruses and flu’s. Not just in the air, but shared physical touch points such as your door handles, photocopies and printers tend to have the highest concentrations of germs.


At Dakro Environmental we believe that UV-C can help benefit cleaning methods as it is a more innovative and effective way of disinfecting. Furthermore, it can help reduce your fear of returning to office work as UV-C inactivates 99.9% of bacteria. This has been proven in case studies around the world to be one the most successful disinfection techniques. UVC has been used over the last 70 years to fight the spread of infections such as measles, influenza and tuberculosis. The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) have reported that “Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of whole room UV-C exposure devices for healthcare environments intended to disinfect the air and accessible surfaces in the room.”


Dakro Environmental have become partners with lighting giants Signify (formerly known as Philips Lighting). This partnership allows us to bring the highest quality UV-C lighting to our clients to fulfill our mission of creating safer spaces for us all. Dakro and Phillips have a full product range which can help you return to office work and make you feel safe.


There are two main forms of UV-C sterilisation products which Dakro offer, the first one being air sterilisation and the other is surface sterilisation. Surface sterilisation includes products such as the UV Wand which can be used to clean any surfaces such as your desktop, keyboard, phones etc. As for Air sterilisation it is items like our range of Purifiers which can help clean the air in your environment protects you from the risks of pathogens at the source of transmission. Such as the new portable UVC air purifier. This unit is a powerful and effective way to disinfect the air within a room.
