Making Guests and Employees safer by reducing the risk of Virus spread.

The foodservice industry, especially restaurants and F&B establishments, have faced significant disruption caused by COVID-19 and other influenza viruses that are known to spread primarily through air and on surfaces. While F&B businesses are now allowed to reopen, there are stringent rules and guidelines that must be adhered to in order to operate. Halton is offering several solutions to reduce the risk of virus spread thus helping restaurant and facility owners to meet these guidelines. Halton’s Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) products which address airborne and fomite (surface) contamination can help make restaurants guests and employees safer by reducing the risk of virus spreading.

Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI), which is an invisible UV-C light at the 254nm wavelength, has been regularly used as a disinfectant and has a long history as a tool for inactivating microorganisms, including viruses and bacteria. Halton’s UVGI SafeGuard Solutions incorporates Ultraviolet Germidical Irradiation. Restaurant owners, facility managers, and alike can now retrofit, or design for new construction to include UVGI Return Air Grills, UVGI Overhead Lights or UVGI Stand-alone mobile filtration units as appropriate.
