As businesses prepare to re-open throughout the UK, they are having to adapt their indoor facilities to meet social distancing guidelines.
For the retail industry this might mean fixing screens around tills and adjusting the layout of the store to allow for one-directional traffic. For restaurants and bars this might mean moving tables and installing physical barriers between booths. Buildings and facilities managers are also looking at ways to adapt their offices to ensure that desks are at least 2 metres apart. Plus, many sectors, including dentists and other healthcare providers, are looking to install temporary ventilation systems to ensure a constant flow of clean air throughout their indoor facilities.
To help businesses reopen safely, the government have released a guidance document titled, “Working safely during Coronavirus for shops and branches”. This document contains guidance for;
- food retailers
- hardware/homeware stores
- fashion shops
- charity shops
- betting shops and arcades
- tailors, dress fitters and fashion designers
- car dealerships
- auction houses
- antique stores
- retail art galleries
- photography studios
- gift shops and retail spaces in theatres, museums, libraries, heritage sites and tourism sites
- mobile phone stores
- indoor and outdoor markets
- craft fairs
- similar types of retail
RVT are pleased to support fit-out companies with dust control, fume control and temporary ventilation systems, to enable these UK businesses to re-open.
RVT’s range of Dustex equipment is suitable for a wide variety of activities; from demolition to wall chasing. The Dustex range includes; dust extraction units, HEPA filtration, vacuums, on-tool extraction, water suppression, tailored LEV solutions and more. We also offer a range of fume control equipment for welding, burning, carbon fumes, solvent fumes, diesel fumes, or any other hazardous gases and vapours.
With regards to ventilation, if you are looking for a small scale solution, we would recommend the Dustex Raptor with HEPA filtration, which is capable of providing negative or positive pressure, and will deliver 4 air changes per hour for a 100m2 area (based on a 2.4m ceiling height). However, RVT offer a wide range of ventilation equipment, delivering anything from 1000m3 to 120,000m3 of clean air per hour, meaning that we can keep your facility well ventilated no matter the size.
