During these cold, wet and windy months we inevitably spend the majority of our time indoors. Pair this season with a lock down this year, when our usual wintery outdoor activities are even more limited, and a fast spreading airborne virus. The result is obvious, and so are the government guidelines. One of the key recommendations – besides hand washing, using face masks, and keeping 2m distance – is keeping our indoor spaces well ventilated. But how do security door grilles come into the picture?
Research shows that staying in a regularly aired room may reduce the risk of spreading infected particles by 70%, therefore significantly preventing transmission of the coronavirus indoors. It is well known that airborne viruses, including Covid-19, are spread by people speaking, sneezing, coughing, blowing their noses, etc. Considerable amounts of air droplets and smaller particles are generated this way. These can then accumulate and linger around in enclosed spaces for hours, ready for other people to breath these in, and get infected. It is therefore crucial that we ventilate our spaces regularly, and throughout the day and night, so these particles are diluted thoroughly.
Airing Safely with Security Door Grilles
Fresh air is extremely beneficial as it not only helps to reduce the risk of infection, but also aids recovery once someone is infected. Government and NHS provide clear guidelines that it is advised to keep lounge doors, and bedroom windows slightly open to aid a healthy level of fresh air circulation indoors. Our security door grilles provide an optimum solution throughout the day, and even during the night for this, whilst still staying secure at home.
Our security door grilles not only serve us well during those breezy summer nights, when we can sleep safely with our windows open, but it seems ever more important now when our health is at constant risk in any enclosed space. With the self-installation option of our security window and door grilles we can also guarantee the easiest, socially distant and safest solution on the market for both our customers, and our employees. So and let’s air that room continuously, and especially before, during, and after any visitor in our spaces. Let’s allow that ventilation to flow nicely and do its best in keeping us healthy, whether or not we already have people with symptoms in our household. As always however, let’s not compromise on safety!
