Amid the pandemic, ensuring effective ventilation in schools became imperative, prompting MAPUK to collaborate with Crofton Infant and Junior School—two of Europe's largest primary schools. With a collective enrolment of 1,306 pupils across adjacent sites in South East London, the schools grappled with the challenge of mitigating Covid transmission, particularly in high-traffic areas. MAPUK played a pivotal role in fortifying the safety and well-being of key school spaces.

Crofton Infant and Junior Schools faced a distinctive challenge, notably in areas like school halls and the canteen, utilised for various activities from assemblies to dining. These multi-functional spaces saw a continuous flow of students throughout the day, raising concerns about virus spread.

To address these concerns, MAPUK recommended the UVC SterilVentilation unit, leveraging state-of-the-art technology. This unit effectively and safely diminishes the risk of airborne virus transmission, including Covid and influenza, achieving a remarkable 99.9% disinfection rate.

The UVC SterilVentilation unit seamlessly integrates into any room, requiring only a power supply with an on/off switch. It operates quietly, with minimal maintenance and no need for disposing of contaminated filters (HEPA). The unit provided a cost-effective operation, surpassing alternatives like opening windows whilst also continually heating the building.

The outcome exceeded expectations, providing a long-term solution rather than a temporary fix. It enabled students to return to the canteen again for hot meals, rather than remaining in the classroom for lunch. Furthermore, it notably enhanced the physical and mental well-being of both students and staff as they could socialise safely outside of their bubble.

This case study underscores how cutting-edge solutions contribute to fostering safer and healthier indoor environments.
