COVID SAFE VENTILATION OF BUILDINGS
Building ventilation is always an important part of a health building environment as it ensures a steady stream of fresh air is brought into the building whilst stale air is exhausted.
Ventilation is a very important way of diluting airborne viruses and pathogens and there is good evidence that demonstrates occupants are at a higher risk of catching an illness in a poorly ventilated room. Ventilation rates and a properly designed system by JC Watson play a role in reducing both airborne exposure as well as deposition rates.
COVID SAFE VENTILATION - HOW MUCH FRESH AIR DO YOU NEED?
To minimise the risk of airborne transmission of viruses and pathogens it is understood that increasing the air supply and exhaust ventilation rates will help. The underlying principle is to dilute and remove airborne viruses and pathogens as much as possible.
JC Watson can assist with :
- Understanding the operation of your ventilation system.
- Helping you devise a solution to run your ventilation system at a higher flow rate.
- We can advise on avoiding recirculation and transfer of air from one room to another.
- A maintenance contract with JC Watson on your system will minimise the risks to rooms and their occupants.
