Amid rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in South Africa, MoonDawn Construction & Electrical’s UV lights range provides doctors with the best of both worlds to minimise the risk of infection within their working environments.
That the COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented pressure on South Africa’s healthcare professionals is no overstatement. With each day spent on the frontline, they know that they are also risking their health and lives to protect their patients. To this end, MoonDawn Construction & Electrical has seen a greater demand of its UV lights range as doctors seek for solutions to reduce the spread of the virus within their consultation rooms.
Craig Peek, MD of MoonDawn Construction & Electrical, says: “With doctors being at the forefront of the COVID-19 war, they have realised that by eliminating airborne viruses and other pathogens in their working environments, they stand a better chance of not contracting the virus from their patients. We take a two-pronged approach to specifying the products for doctors, looking at killing both airborne viruses and the sterilisation of surfaces where most of the contact is made by staff and patients.”
UV sterilisation can kill over 99% of airborne viruses, bacteria and fungi within a short period. The lights are extremely effective at what they do. UV lights rely on convection air flow that dictates the rising of hot air in an area. Additional airflow enhances the effectiveness of the lights.
“The lights are fitted with a unique UVC reflector to make sure the UV-C rays are reflected away from the human elements in a room, ensuring safe operation of the units. Each unit is designed to cover a certain square meterage and maximise the output in different shaped rooms. The products are fitted with Philips lamps and are made to the highest standards. With an 18-month life span, the lights have low running costs and are environmentally friendly,” concludes Peek.
