Signify protects Harlequins with UVC
ECA Commercial Associate Signify has installed UVC disinfectant lighting at the Stoop, home of English Gallagher Premiership Rugby Union Club Harlequins. The installation is the first at a UK professional sports club, and a world first in rugby.
UV-C is a well-established method of disinfection, used to prevent the spread of diseases by disinfecting air, water and surfaces. UV-C breaks down the DNA or RNA of microorganisms including viruses and bacteria, rendering them harmless.
Laurie Dalrymple, Chief Executive Officer, Harlequins, said in Electrical Contracting News, “We are proud to be the first professional sports team in the UK to use UV-C disinfection lighting technology, and we expect to see it widely utilized in future across the sports and events industry.”
