The A-Z of Gibbons: C is for…


In May 2015, we launched Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions, a venture that sees us supply and install pioneering air and surface disinfection technology in occupied spaces as varied as offices, hospitals, swimming pools and food-processing facilities.

Forming part of the Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions range is CoilCare®, our innovative heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) surface disinfection system developed in partnership with BioZone Scientific International.

CoilCare® is an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) treatment that eradicates biofilm (a sticky mixture of dust, microbes, mould and other contaminants) from the surfaces of cooling coils and drain pans within the air handling unit (AHU) of an HVAC system. 

Biofilm within an AHU can be transferred to building occupants via the airstream, leading to illness, reduced productivity and an increase in absenteeism.

Biofilm also affects the AHU’s efficiency, as the accumulation of contaminants causes a pressure drop that means fans and chillers have to use more energy to achieve the set point temperature. In some cases, cooling coils can become so clogged that pressure is halved and energy consumption increases by up to 30 per cent.

CoilCare® is compatible with all AHUs fitted with cooling coils. The system is easy to install, requires minimal maintenance and continued use prevents the re-growth of biofilm.
