PSV is the first to use UV-C light to disinfect the changing room and the training complex. Frans Peelen (Signify) and Frans Janssen (soccer club PSV) talked about its deployment and operation during the Connection festival (Verbindingsfestival in the Netherlands) on 29 September. UV-C light can break down viruses, including COVID-19. By using UV-C light, we improve the air quality in a well-ventilated room.
Effective use of UV-C light in changing rooms
The use of UV-C light in changing rooms is highly effective. Many athletes turned out to have contracted an infection while showering. UV-C light kills 99.99% of all viruses and bacteria, including the corona virus (COVID-19). According to the club doctor Gust van Montfort, the use of UV-C light is also an ideal solution after corona for PSV: “Corona is now the most important, but after that the flu viruses keep coming. We want to continue to prevent these too.”
BBM Clean Air Solutions sells UV-C air recirculation systems, where the air is sucked in with aerosols and then guided through the internal UV-C light and then blown back into the room completely (99.99%) clean. In addition, we sell sterilizing devices that sterilize both rooms and objects. Using UV-C technology, these devices disinfect rooms and everything in them. Research from the University of Boston has shown that the use of UV-C light kills 99.99% of germs, including the coronavirus (COVID-19), within 25 seconds.
