“With the investment in the UV BENCH, we can disinfect our 3D-glasses, audio guides, headsets, microphones and other electronic equipment, which cannot be cleaned with standard cleaning methods. Our guests are just as excited about the UV BENCH as we are. I think partly because, a piece of furniture is such a concrete object of material. They can operate it themselves, cleaning their toys and mobile phones before they leave. Overall, the response from our guests regarding all our UV products have been good. We feel it gives them extra comfort to know that we take great responsibility in keeping a safe environment during their stay with us”, explains Mads Kring Head of Outreach and Education at Planetarium.

Copenhagen is the location of the Danish museum of astronomy, Planetarium. Its distinct architecture is quite spectacular, with a large dome at the heart of the building, the largest dome in Northern Europe! A large 360-degree screen offers a unique visual 8K experience, which immerses the audience with breath taking shows about astronomy.

UV technology for higher safety measures against Covid-19

Cultural institutions such as Planetarium have been challenged by Covid-19 lockdowns during 2020, forcing them to rethink how to welcome guests in a safer and more secure environment for employees and guests.

UltraViolet (UV) light is a known and well-documented technology for disinfection against viruses such as Covid-19. A fact that Planetarium was aware of because of their technical and scientific expertise. Due to the Planetarium’s knowledge on UV light’s disinfection application, they researched online and found EFSEN UV & EB TECHNOLOGY.
