Arcadia schools has awarded a major contract of ultraviolet technology to ultraviolet air purification firm Sanuvox.
Under the contract Sanuvox, through its local distributor Oasis Coils and Coatings, will install ultraviolet technology to continuously clean its cooling coils and the air molecules coming through the air conditioning systems in both its primary and secondary school campuses.
Ultraviolet technology is recommended by ASHRAE, the global organization that sets benchmarks in the field of air conditioning, to help eliminate the transmission of airborne infectious diseases.
In light of Covid-19, sales of UV technology have risen exponentially across sectors.
“This move is the first in a series of investments we will be making to protect our students when they return back to our campuses," said Navin Valrani, CEO of Arcadia School, as he promised to leave no stone unturned to protect the Arcadia community when schools open in Dubai.
"This is by far one of the most effective methods in eliminating bacteria and mold in our airconditioning units as well as cleaning the air molecules that comes through our ducts by breaking down their DNA.”
“This shows the true commitment of Arcadia’s school towards teachers and student health. As everyone knows a healthy body in a healthy environment is all we want for our kids to learn, succeed and further contribute to society”, added Jocelyn Dame, President of Sanuvox.
