Ventilation & COVID-19

It’s never been more important to improve indoor air quality in order to reduce and mitigate the effects of viruses such as COVID-19

BE COVID-AWARE

If you are installing or servicing ventilation, we can help you understand the key principles. We can help you ensure compliance with legislation and best industry practise.

PREVENTION IS KEY

Well maintained systems adapted for use in the COVID-19 pandemic have been proven to reduce the spread of the virus. Increasing air-flow rate is a key factor in achieving this.

PROTECT YOUR TEAM

In order to ensure occupants of buildings during, and after the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, are safely provided with adequate ventilation. We implement a multi-faceted strategy to ensure this is achieved and that building occupants are as safe as possible.

VENTILATION UPGRADES

Ventilation system upgrades and improvements can increase the delivery and quality of clean air and dilute potential contaminants. JC Watson can undertake complete system upgrades and overhauls to assist in achieving this objective.

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.
