Stopping the Spread of Covid-19 in Schools

Keeping our children safe at school is uppermost in the minds of parents, teachers and education leaders - never before have good ventilation and touch free hygiene products been so high on the agenda.

VORTICE believes that there are three fundamental factors to improve the air quality and help to stop the spread of COVID-19 in schools – Ventilation, Purification and Sanitisation which is further backed up by the Government’s recent video showing the importance of ventilation. It is important to note that not all classrooms have windows that open and sometimes it’s not appropriate to open windows in the winter, so ventilation is paramount. VORTICE has a specialised set of ventilation products including single room heat recovery units, supply and extract fans and commercial AHU’s for larger projects to ensure a constant fresh air supply into the classroom.

For schools that are not in a position to build new classrooms from scratch, air purification units are the answer. VORTICE offers systems like the DEPURO PRO range of air purifiers that retain up to 99.995% of polluting micro particles, which are potential carriers of viruses and bacteria. Models include a version equipped with the technology and tested to effectively kill COVID-19. The EVO models include a photocatalysis UV-C lamp which sanitises the product by removing pollutants, strong odours and micro-organisms.

A hot topic in schools and nurseries is sanitisation, which is crucial for good hygiene. VORTICE offers an array of products for the education environment to effectively sanitise and retain a hygienic atmosphere where hand washing takes place. The VORT SUPER DRY Range is comprised of automatic electric hand dryers with a UV germicidal lamp. The units dry and sanitise the hands without the need to touch anything, ensuring maximum hygiene and safety for the user. The S+G dispensers are automatic non-touch electric dispensers which use soap or antibacterial disinfectant gel.

The UVLOGIKA SYSTEM is a germicidal UV-C lamp, ideal for sanitising and disinfecting surfaces. Its radiation quickly eliminates up to 99% of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that are deposited on surfaces and is particularly useful in classroom environments.
