UV-C Disinfection Robots - Making Showrooms Safe Space
Like many other sectors, showrooms of all types, including car, kitchen, bathroom and furniture outlets, are all looking forward to re-opening and welcoming their customers back through their doors.
When businesses re-opened last summer showroom owners had to put in place measures to ensure people felt safe in their spaces. However, this time round, with new strains of the coronavirus causing concern and many people still erring on the side of caution when visiting any shops or showrooms, customer confidence needs to be rebuilt again.
Our robots are classified as medical devices, capable of destroying microorganisms’ DNA structures, quickly and safely eradicating 99.9% of harmful bacteria and viruses in a retail setting within minutes.
Visibility & frequency of cleaning
We provide signage to clearly indicate where spaces have been disinfected. Our robots can be programmed to clean as frequently as required with different models to suit various size spaces.
Our UV-C disinfection robots sanitise all spaces in an environmentally friendly and chemical-free way leaving no harmful residues on valuable stock.
Out of hours
Our robots can be programmed manually or remotely to schedule disinfection of your retail space either during working or non-work hours.
Frequently Touched Surfaces
Showroom customers in particular like to feel, touch and try out all sorts of surfaces. These can include doors, drawers, cupboards, taps, toilets and tiles in a kitchen or bathroom showroom; tables, chairs, cabinets, sideboards, beds and headboards in furniture showrooms; and handles, gear sticks, steering wheels, upholstery, boots and the general external of a vehicle in car showrooms.
In these spaces where many surfaces are subject to touch points, it is important to follow all the safety guidelines laid out by Public Health England and Public Health Wales, which include carrying out risk assessments and putting in place appropriate measures based on these assessments. Some of the measures which showroom owners have shared with us include:
Having appointment-only visits from customers
Recording the names and contact details of anyone who enters the showroom
Ensuring customers and staff wear face coverings at all times
Having sanitising stations available at the front door and at other key access points
Marking out signs to indicate 2 metre spacing in all areas of the showroom and put in place a one way system if possible
Putting up screens to protect staff at customer interaction points
Regular deep cleaning, sanitisation and disinfection of all areas of the showroom (including toilets and waiting areas)
Naturally, all of this is very time consuming especially the regular cleaning and, in some showrooms, samples and such like which have been touched by customers will have to be cleaned and quarantined for up to 48 hours. So, what’s the solution?
UV-C Robots for Effective Showroom Sanitisation
A number of showroom owners are investing in UV-C disinfection robots from Swansea-based Evolve Raybotix which are classified as a medical device. The UV-C light used in our robot technology, in combination with Ozone gas, can destroy 99.9% of dangerous bacteria, microorganisms, germs and pathogens in all environments across all surfaces in just minutes. Get more information here.
These robots can be programmed to schedule a disinfection of a room or dedicated area either remotely or manually to allow for a cleaning process to suit your operational needs. For example, if you have had an influx of customers but have a lull in appointments, you can programme a 10-minute disinfection of your showroom ready to welcome the new batch of customers quickly afterwards. Through the use of Lidar sensors, our robots will map a surrounding area before the disinfection cycle begins which allows for the pinpointing of optimum positioning of the machine, including frequently touched points.
Melanie Smith, Owner of Coast Bathrooms & Kitchens in Llanelli is one showroom owner who recognises the benefits of the Evolve Raybotix robots. Says Melanie, “When we’re allowed to open I love having customers come into the showroom but we need to make them, as well as our staff, feel safe in this environment as well as myself and my own family going home I feel safe and confident that I’m doing the right thing.”
