Urecsys harnesses its capabilities to battle COVID-19

Leading scientists in our R&D department have been keeping up with the latest scientific literature and research to formulate the most effective ventilation methods and practices to combat COVID-19.

The scientific literature notes that temperature, humidity, air pollution levels and ventilation all have an impact on the rate of infection and the severity of the disease. Urecsys optimizes these parameters in real time while regulating ventilation and air conditioning systems, thereby significantly contributing to the reduction of the infection rate from the virus, in four different ways:

  1. 1. Optimizing climate conditions to reduce the survival of the virus in the building by activating Urecsys outside of work hours.
  2. 2. Reducing infection rate and vulnerability to the virus among those in the building using a special operation strategy during working hours.
  3. 3. Reducing public exposure to air pollution in the building, thereby improving cardiopulmonary conditions to begin with, which contributes to reducing the infection rate.
  4. 4. Reduced risk of spreading the disease as a result of common faults in ventilation management, ensuring fresh air supply and continuous quality control according to standards.

Optimizing climate conditions

Urecsys will work overtime for its employees. A short but effective period of increased temperature in the building outside of work hours can create an inhospitable environment for viruses found on the building’s surfaces. This operation must be tailored to each individual building, as incorrect management may cause damage to the building and aid in the proliferation and spread of biological contaminants.

 

Infection rate reduction strategies for working hours. There are two strategies Urecsys may employ during working hours to fight biological hazards such as COVID-19:

1.Urecsys will moderately raise the temperature in the building in an attempt to diminish and disrupt the virus’s survival in the building. Most buildings will need an increase of 3-7 degrees (Celsius) in order to achieve these conditions.

2.Optimizing the building’s humidity – Dryer air may reduce the virus’s spread radius. Additionally, optimized humidity levels are known to support of the body’s “first line of defense” against infections of the respiratory system.

The system’s unique qualities allows it to perform these optimizations in every single building in a way that does not endanger the structure and systems of that individual building and maintains a reasonably comfortable environment for the building’s inhabitants.

Reducing Public Exposure to Air Pollution

Reducing public exposure to air pollution may contribute to reducing the infection rate and improve cardiopulmonary conditions to begin with. Many studies show that there is a strong correlation between exposure to air pollution and the probability of contracting viruses affecting the airways (such as the coronavirus) and increase the chances of developing serious complications from those viruses.

Urecsys significantly reduces the air pollution levels in the building, providing the tenants with a physical health advantage when fighting viruses such as COVID-19 and other respiratory infections and conditions.

Reducing the risk of increased contamination due to common faults in ventilation management

Complying with ventilation standards – our system makes sure to meet ventilation standards at all times, under all circumstances, and creates the healthiest and safest conditions in the building.

Smart – The automated nature of the Urecsys system ensures continuous improvement of the conditions in the building and prevents human error.

Reducing the risk of increased infection rates due to common malfunctions – In many buildings, malfunctions and failures in the ventilation system may not be detected within a reasonable time. Urecsys has an automatic detection and warning mechanism for any malfunction and interruption in the operation of the fresh air system.
