UV Technology are a specialist UV-C Value Added Partner (VAP) for Signify.

”Dariusz Pastor, president of Mokotowska Warszawianka – Water Park Foundation
Wodny Park, Warszawianka is the most popular sports and recreational facility in the capital of Poland. The comfort and safety of visiting guests is the highest priority for the owner, the Mokotów Foundation Warszawianka. This is particularly so during the Corona virus pandemic, with increased hygiene recommendations and regulations in place to limit the spread of COVID-19.
“Together with Signify, we provide services for our partners, keeping any standards, precautions and security in mind. We’re happy, that Warszawianka is the first park in Poland protected by Philips UV-C.”
Robert Faliszewski, Value Added Partner Signify, Master Light Service
To increase hygiene standards, state-of-the-art disinfection solutions were installed. In laboratory testing, Signify’s UV-C light sources reduced SARS-CoV-2 virus infectivity on a surface to below detectable levels in as few as 9 seconds1. Philips upper air ceiling mounted systems are installed in the changing rooms, and Philips UV-C battens are used for surface disinfection in the spa area. Both are supplied and installed by Master Light Service (MLS) – a company that offers comprehensive services lighting, and has operated on the Polish market since 2007. As UV-C contractor, MLS has been professionally trained to install and operate UV-C disinfection systems.
As direct exposure to UV-C light is harmful, our UV-C products are delivered with a range of safeguards and instructions. They come with physically integrated equipment or time safeguards, such as presence or motion detection sensors or timers, or otherwise they are to be installed with containment safeguards to enable safe operation. Also we provide extensive training and certification programs to help ensure correct installation, usage and maintenance.
In areas where swimming pool customers gather and stay the longest, such as the changing rooms, Philips UV-C disinfection upper air systems are installed on the ceiling. This system continually inactivates viruses and bacteria in air in a space, even in an enclosed room. The process does not interfere with the regular operation of the facility because UV-C devices are equipped with shielding and mounted at a height that allows customers to stay in the changing rooms when the device is active.
In the spa zone, where customers enjoy massages and body treatments, Philips UV-C battens are installed. Designed for the disinfection of radiated surfaces, they require only a short period of time to be effective, and can therefore be used in between treatments. This means that guests who have booked spa treatments can be confident that they are entering a disinfected room. Moreover, as there is no downtime when using UV-C, the room can be used immediately after the disinfection process has been completed.
