Customer challenge

Visiting hotels, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets, classrooms and offices, we breathe, talk and laugh. As well, we cough and sneeze. With the new measures to prevent the coronavirus from spreading, our way of living changed completely. We made a habit of washing our hands frequently, keeping 1.5 metres distance of each other and disinfecting surfaces for example. Now,  looking into the air we breathe, is a problem that the Director of the SONEPAR Connect agency in Reims was keen to solve.

The solution

Philips UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires continuously disinfect the air that flows through the upper areas of the room thanks to natural convection, or air circulation.
