Module Hygiene Collection

The Module Hygiene Collection features workspaces equipped with an automatic UV-C disinfection system that kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria in the space – including the SARS CoV-2 coronavirus – within five minutes.

The self-disinfecting workspaces offer every user safe conditions for productive and focussed work – every time they are used.

Module Hygiene pods feature laminar air flow, which quickly pushes virus-containing aerosols, for instance from a sneeze or exhalation, to the floor so that they do not float in the air inside the space. That is why in Module Hygiene pods, there is a significantly lower risk of viral or bacterial infection, even if the space is being used by several people simultaneously.

The hDuo and hTeam pods feature excellent soundproofing and acoustics, efficient ventilation and glare-free, indirect lighting. The workspaces set the stage for successful and productive work by offering their users privacy and peace. The laminar air flow and automatic UV-C disinfection system make the space a virus-and bacteria-free bubble that increases the safety of the work environment and helps prevent the spread of diseases, which additionally reduces the number of absences due to illness.

A SAFE, DISINFECTED WORKSPACE FOR EVERY USER

The Module Hygiene Collection of office pods features an automatic disinfection system based on UV-C light that sterilises the space after each period of use that lasts more than six consecutive minutes.

Research shows that UV-C light effectively kills the RNA of viruses, thereby preventing the viruses from spreading and proliferating. The method has been used to kill viruses and bacteria in the air and on surfaces, objects and in water for 40 years already.

The UV-C disinfecting process takes five minutes and kills viruses and bacteria with 99.9% certainty – including the SARS CoV-2 coronavirus.

OPERATION AND SAFETY OF THE AUTOMATIC UV-C DISINFECTION SYSTEM

Module Hygiene pods are equipped with a light panel that indicates the status of the disinfection process:

  • Green light: The space has been disinfected and is ready to use
  • Yellow light: Disinfection is about to start
  • Red light: Disinfection is in progress, wait until the light turns green.

The pods are equipped with sensors that measure how long it was in use. The pod requires disinfecting if it was used for at least six consecutive minutes.

Once the need for disinfection has been established, the automatic UV-C disinfection system will initiate the disinfection process five minutes after the pod’s last use. The disinfection system will not start up if there are people in the pod.

The motion sensors in the pod continuously detect whether the workspace is in use or not. Once the space has been empty and the door closed for five minutes after use, the disinfecting begins. The disinfection process takes five minutes, after which the space is ready for its next user.

The highly effective UV-C disinfection kills 99.9% of any possible viruses and bacteria in the space. The UV-C light (wavelength 254 nm) does not produce ozone.

UV-C light does not permeate the Module Hygiene pod structures or materials, so the light only affects the interior of the pod.

  • The pod is made from materials that prevent UV-C light from passing through
  • The laminated glass walls block UV-C light
  • The door and frame are double-rebated
  • The disinfection system will not start if the pod is in use
  • If the pod’s door is opened during disinfection, the disinfection cycle will cease automatically.
