    Spolem customer challange

    The challenge


    Społem is one of the largest retail chains in Poland with more than 3,000 stores. To protect staff and customers during the pandemic, Społem wanted to maintain the highest sanitary conditions to prevent the spread of disease, but the constant flow of customers made this a real challenge.

    The solution of Spolem

    The solution


    Philips UV-C disinfection upper air devices were mounted on the ceilings. These continually emit UV-C radiation in the upper part of the store while still allowing customers to carry on shopping during their operation. To disinfect surfaces, UV-C battens were installed, which are automatically activated at night when no one is present.
