Dorsett Hospitality has installed IoT-based High Efficiency Particulate Air )HEPA) UV-C air purifiers on guest floors of its nine hotels in Hong Kong to improve air circulation.
The Momax Smart IoT UV-C Air Purifier (AP8S) has H13 HEPA and Active carbon filters which are 99.95% efficient at capturing and removing airborne particles that are no more than 0.3 microns in diameter, including harmful particulates such as PM 2.5 and other allergens, dust, mold and pollution from the air. It also provides Ultraviolet-C sanitisation which is 99.9% efficient in disinfecting the air and killing germs.
The built-in PM2.5 high-sensitivity laser sensor allows the hotel chain to accurately and carefully monitor the standard of air quality on each floor at all its properties in Hong Kong, and ensure air is being circulated and disinfected regularly 24/7.
In choosing the air purifiers, Dorsett Hospitality consulted from the list of air purifiers that meet the specifications applicable to catering business recently put together by Hong Kong’s the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD).
Last month, the city government imposed stricter COVID rules for dine-in restaurants as the Hong Kong prepared to ease social distancing measures. The FEHD is now requiring companies with catering operations to increase their premises' air change rate to at least six times per hour or use alternative means to meet the requirements. As part of this measure, air purifiers in dine-in restaurants have been stipulated under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Requirements and Directions) (Business and Premises) Regulation (Cap. 599F) on infection control grounds.
To date, Dorsett Wanchai, a designated hotel for quarantine for inbound travellers (outside of China), has already placed a Smart IoT UV-C HEPA Air Purifier on every guest floor.
“We want to offer our guests the confidence to travel with Dorsett, by understanding and anticipating their needs when it comes to health and safety and lifting their spirits as we continue to fight and recover from the epidemic,” the hotel chain spokesman said.
Since the onset of COVID-19, Dorsett has worked closely Ecolab, a provider of infection prevention solutions, to deliver hospital-grade disinfectant designed to kill pathogens. Each hotel room has its own independent pipe, which connects to the main fan on the roof of all hotels, allowing fresh air to be drawn from the outside to each room, and through an air filter disinfected with Ecolab.
“We will continue to closely monitor and improve our health and safety measures as well as our overall guest experience. Our designated quarantine hotels have recently launched monthly Zooms for our quarantine guests, including a private live workout with F45 Causeway Bay and a virtual wine tasting, to offer our community a chance to connect and interact throughout their stay,” the spokesman added.
