Your room can do moreThe heart of every building is the room. As the starting point for creating perfect places, it marks a change in perspective: automation that puts people at the center. Did you know that the rental value of healthy productive buildings is at least six percent higher? Room automation is key for protecting and enhancing the occupants' health as well as increasing productivity at the same time.
Your room can do more for your health
Healthy and productive spaces are playing a major role in our lifes and nowadays are even more important than ever. So, what exactly can your room do for your health? Well, it boost your well-being and productivity and can help to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria: room sensors, operation units and thermostats can provide a healthy and productive indoor climate:
- Avoid dry air in the room. The transmission of viruses, bacteria and allergens are highly dependent on indoor humidity, so make sure to keep a level of 40 to 60% relative humidity.
- Controlled pressure. In rooms with controlled lower air pressure, and where viruses and bacteria exist, the air contamination of neighboring areas can be prevented more effectively.
- Control ventilation levels. With additional fresh air, the relative number of viral particles in the air volume is reduced and contaminated air is removed more efficiently from the area.
Please feel free to have a look at our whitepaper for more information on how your room can help you to be more healthy and productive!
How smart buildings help support the fight against the coronavirus
Building technology can support companies in taking measures to protect employees, customers and partners. Our COVID-19 recommendations provide information on concrete measures.
Sick Building Syndrome
Do you know buildings that give you a headache and/or irritation of eyes and throat? Potentially you are experiencing Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). One major cause of SBS is the out gassing from building materials such as carpets, paints or furniture. These gases are summarized as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Recent laws on energy saving require well insulated and draught-proofed buildings to minimize the need for heating and cooling. The resulting air tightness of buildings, however, also keeps the VOC gasses inside, creating SBS among occupants. Humid air as well can indirectly contribute to SBS by promoting the growth of fungi and mold. Besides devaluing the real estate, exposure to mold spores represents a hazardous health risk. Symptoms range from allergic reactions to poisoning by mycotoxins. The number one measure to prevent SBS is proper ventilation.
