UV-C Disinfection Can Ensure your Event Space Doesn’t Get Shut Down This Christmas

After another year of restrictions and disruption to everyday life due to COVID-19, you would be in every right mind to want a chance to celebrate the festive season with a bang at a venue. However, the arrival of the new Omicron variant just goes to show how the pandemic continues to surprise us, and certainly not in the way we want.

If you’re holding or hosting large events, you will want to have the security in knowing everything was done to ensure the venue was as germ and virus-free as possible. With UV-C disinfection methods, we offer a cutting-edge method to ensure events can go ahead as planned, without a nasty hangover of infections or closures in its wake.

Not the end of the party

The emergence of the Omicron variant in recent weeks is sending jitters throughout the country, with an expected rise in cases as we go into Christmas and New Year. Hospitality has been one of the most vulnerable sectors of the economy during the pandemic. Venues both large and small have been facing cancellations as customers begin curtailing social encounters. While it lessens the likelihood of COVID-19 continuing to spread, it denies people the chance to return to some semblance of normality and enjoy a good festive celebration.

Prevention is better than cure, and that’s why it pays to invest in some of the most cutting-edge disinfection technology on the market. Evolve Raybotix has an array of robots which can conduct disinfection duties manually or by remote control, using state-of-the-art UV-C light technology to disinfect surfaces thoroughly. UV light is known to damage the DNA and RNA of germs and viruses found on all surfaces, preventing them from reproducing and potentially leading to infections.

In just 7-16 minutes, our SOL robot can carry out a disinfection cycle in an area of 100 metres squared. This can prove handy, especially if we’re talking about a venue that needs to be disinfected as efficiently as possible. Using both UV-C light and Ozone gas, SOL can offer a sanitation which avoids the need for chemicals residues from cleaning materials and a whole team of cleaners.

Cutting edge for Christmas

In July 2020, Bangkok’s IMPACT Exhibition Centre made headlines, announcing it was using UV disinfection robot technology in the fight to stem the spread of COVID-19 specifically. As COVID-19 cases began to mount last year, the IMPACT Exhibition Centre revised its cleaning protocols, using two UV-light robots to clean exhibition halls and common areas.

Events venues are some of the most obvious places, (excluding airports, train stations and transport networks), which host a large volume of people at the best of times. In spite of social distancing measures, the best way to limit the risk of COVID-19 spreading in such venues is to ensure as many surfaces have been sterilised as possible.

Christmas is an obvious time for holding large-scale events, but it is also a time when coughs and sneezes can be rife, regardless of the situation. COVID-19 can linger on surfaces or in the air in the form of aerosol droplets for minutes or hours at a time, depending on the ventilation in a given venue. Having inadequate disinfection resources at your disposal could mean Christmas is cancelled, at least this year. Fortunately, Evolve Raybotix robots can disinfect both surfaces and the air itself, through both the UV-C light and the Ozone gas, the latter of which is dispersed harmlessly back into oxygen once the disinfection cycle is completed.

Our UV-C and ozone robots can allow you to breathe deep and relax when holding an event this Christmas, safe in the knowledge that our robots have done everything they can to ensure the health and safety of you and your staff is maintained during a gathering. Evolve Raybotix has a catalogue of UV-C and Ozone robots which can adapt to a variety of requirements for your business this Christmas.

Feel free to browse, but if you wish to know more about our disinfection robots, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us directly, to see what we can do to make sure your event venue can be as virus and germ-free as possible this Christmas.
