Time to open our theatres and music venues…. An Electrostatic solution to make it happen!
During the current climate, sanitation and cleanliness has become a key factor in everyone’s lives. Whether It be carrying a small bottle of hand sanitiser around with you, washing your hands to the chorus of happy birthday, or even wiping every surface down after each use, its safe to say, we are now going above and beyond in ensuring both ourselves, and everyone else is safe from this deadly virus.
Keeping ourselves safe is simple enough, but what about those bigger areas which we all loved to visit before lockdown? Theatres, exhibition halls, music venues, stadiums? Wiping every single seat down after every use is one mammoth task.
Let’s put this into context. The Royal Victoria Theatre London, Current home to Hamilton, one of the most popular stage performances of this decade. Pre lockdown the team were putting on up to 2 shows a day. At full Capacity that is 1550 seats twice a day. Now let’s not forget the front foyer, toilets, box office area, bar and sweet stand. That’s a lot of wiping to do in just a couple of hours between performances.
So, what is the solution to make this a simpler task which will take a fraction of the time?
Fogging won’t work, drying times are hours rather than minutes due to the fine droplets sitting in the air before they evaporate… in a theatre that’s no good, those seats can’t be wet when the next audience come to see the show! We have already ruled out wiping the seats down every time… so what can you do?
How about misting? Electrostatic Misting to be precise!
Fine droplets between 40-80 microns in size, charged by an electrostatic current meaning when it hits the surface, it adheres to it no matter the shape or what it is made of. At 40-80 microns, the droplets are so fine that it takes minutes to dry.
Add in a disinfectant capable of destroying any potential virus risk, and you are on to a winner.
Electrostatic Misting, what is it?
Electrostatic spray surface cleaning is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spray uses a specialised solution that is combined with air and atomised by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains positively charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they’re aimed at.
For awkwardly shaped objects or hard to reach places, cleaning staff only have to point and spray; the nature of the mist allows it to coat surfaces evenly, and envelope objects—even if the mist is only sprayed from one side. After the spray is applied, the sanitising agent works to disinfect the covered surfaces. For this reason, electrostatic spray is an excellent solution for germ and contaminant ridden areas.
