Our Covid-19 Plan - UVC Lamps
Updated: Dec 21, 2020
We take your safety, and ours, very seriously.
We recently installed hospital grade disinfection in our commercial air conditioning system. Manufactured locally in Thomastown by Australian Ultra Violet Services Pty Ltd, three UV-C lamps with a combined intensity of 29,000 microwatts (µW) destroy 99.9% of viruses and bacteria.
For example, the Influenza virus is destroyed when exposed to 6,600 µW (see attached document).
Thanks to the commercial Daikin Airconditioning System - chosen originally to minimise air speed and therefore noise - the air in the studio is filtered, cleaned and exchanged every 3 minutes.
We continue to use masks, clean surfaces before and after sessions and are providing hand sanitiser.
