UV-C Robots Help to Upgrade Heathrow Airport’s Sky Trax Covid-19

Heathrow Airport’s COVID-19 Airport Safety Rating has been upgraded by Sky Trax to reflect the many improvements to the hygiene, safety and cleanliness protocols and standards introduced at the airport.

This achievement was reported recently by Sky Trax whose Safety Rating is regarded as a global benchmark for defining safe travel assurance for customers. The article on the website stated that:

“Heathrow has made many improvements to their COVID-19 safety protocol implementation in the past 6 months, with enhanced hygiene and cleanliness measures now meeting a strong overall standard, and further enhancements due in the coming months. The airport has widely rolled out antimicrobial coatings on frequently touched surfaces, and has also introduced UV sanitisation measures on escalators rails, and through its UV cleaning robots.” Read more here.

A similar product to the robots used at Heathrow are the Evolve Raybotix UV-C Disinfection robots supported by Ozone which are now classified as medical devices. There are three different models and sizes of Raybotix robots each with specific properties as follows:

The NEO, due to its diminutive size, is a portable UV-C Ozone disinfection robot, ideal for sanitising all manner of smaller spaces thanks to its ease of use and manoeuvrability. The NEO is able to clean 25m2 in as little as 15 minutes as is suitable for multiple applications and venues including ambulances, cafes, restaurants, bathrooms, garages, kitchens, small offices, storerooms, waiting rooms, smaller hotel rooms, closets, laboratories, children’s playrooms, dressing rooms, dental offices and other examination rooms. It is also ideal for buses, cars, vans, lorries, camper vans and all kinds of rental and fleet vehicles.

The EOS is a static UV-C disinfection robot which uses room mapping technology to deliver a fast and effective germicidal dose of continuous wave UV-C light. The EOS can sanitise an area of 80m2 in as little as eight minutes. Backed up by smart Ozone deployment – to ensure shadowed and hard to reach areas are sanitised – the EOS destroys 99.9% of germs and pathogens efficiently. Restaurants, concert halls and other entertainment venues, offices, hotel rooms and reception areas, plus the airline, rail and shipping industries all utilise the EOS disinfection robot for ultimate disinfection and peace of mind for both employees and clients
