Customer challenge

With the Coronavirus pandemic present, shopping brings some challenges. The last thing you would need, is to worry about your health and safety during shopping. The need for disinfection options – in particular for indoor air, but also for surfaces and equipment has increased significantly. A challenge that was faced by EDEKA Clausen supermarket in Hamburg to provide additional safety of customers and employees.

The solution

As an innovative retailer, EDEKA Clausen is the first supermarket in Germany to deliver an additional layer of protection with 31 Philips UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires installed to cover 1,315.70m² large branch in Hamburg. As the upper air devices are equipped with shielding and optics to prevent exposure to UV-C radiation, employees can safely fill the shelves, and customers do their grocery shopping. The UV-C upper air luminaires continuously disinfect the air that flows through the upper areas of the store, thanks to natural convection, or air circulation. Philips BioShift chamber was also set up to disinfect objects such as shared hand-held scanners, adding another level of safety for employees and customers.
