Gibbons improves indoor air quality in one of Dubai’s largest shopping malls

The Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions team swapped the grey, autumnal skies of Essex for the baking heat of Dubai last week to install the CoilCare® HVAC disinfection system at the 80,000 m² Wafi Mall shopping centre for Unicor Services.

CoilCare® is a pioneering systems that uses ultraviolet-C (UVC) lamps mounted within air handling units (AHUs) to destroy contaminants such as bacteria, mould and viruses that form on the cooling coil surface.

Continued use of the equipment prevents contaminants from re-growing, ensuring that building occupants breathe clean, germ-free air and remain healthy, happy and productive.

In addition, the removal of biofilm (an accumulation of mould, dust and bacteria) from cooling coil services helps to improve AHU performance, extend its operational life and reduce maintenance frequency.

As part of our service to help improve and protect the health and wellbeing of staff and visitors within the Wafi Mall’s shops and restaurants, the project also included on-site testing and cooling coil surface sampling.

Before heading home, Gibbons’ Senior Site Engineer Alex Forrest posed in front of the 830-metre-high Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building since its construction in 2010.

To enquire about the benefits of CoilCare® in your shopping centre, office, healthcare facility, hotel, school or other publicly-used space, call Colin Hardman on 07940 544206 or email
