It’s been as busy few weeks here at Gibbons as we’ve been preparing to launch our exclusive partnership with BioZone Scientific International, a global leader in ultraviolet applications. This exciting new collaboration – entitled Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions – was officially announced yesterday and will deliver ultraviolet surface disinfection of cooling coils and drain pans within air handling units, helping our clients improve indoor air quality while making energy savings of up to 25%.

CoilCare® is an intensive ultraviolet treatment for air handling units which will allow building managers to improve indoor air quality, enhance employee wellbeing and productivity and extend the service life of their equipment with a single solution.

Why is CoilCare® needed?

An air handling unit’s cooling coil is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, viruses and mould. Dust and dirt particles become attached to the sticky mould on coil fins and tubes and the resulting build-up is known as biofilm. The accumulation of biofilm leads to reduced equipment efficiency while posing a significant risk to the health and wellbeing of building occupants.

How does CoilCare® work?

The CoilCare® Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) disinfection system applies UVC light to an AHU’s cooling coil, eradicating existing biofilm and preventing new biofilm from developing.

The Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions system can be applied to new or existing HVAC systems in any area of a building, from meeting rooms to toilets. This flexible treatment allows building managers across a wide range of sectors including commercial offices, hospitals and food production to:
  •      Enhance HVAC system efficiency
  •      Reduce airborne bacteria, mould and viruses by up to 99% for superior  indoor air quality
  •      Improve staff health, wellbeing and productivity
  •       Achieve energy savings of up to 25%
  •      Extend the service life of their HVAC equipment

Are there any other products besides CoilCare®?

CoilCare® is just the beginning. We’ll soon be introducing further products from the extensive BioZone range to ultimately provide a whole-building solution for spaces supplied with conditioned air, so look out for more news in the near future.
