SWIFTCLEAN EXPANDS NEW CORONAVIRUS
Ventilation ductwork cleaning expert
Swi clean has already expanded its
new deep cleaning services to combat
COVID-19 Coronavirus, in response
to demand. In addition to its recently
announced ventilation ductwork
deep cleaning, the company’s new
environmental cleaning for hard surfaces
has already been expanded to treat entire
rooms and buildings with both hard and
so surfaces, using fogging technology.
Fogging is a reliable method of
distributing medical sanitising chemical
across a wide variety of hard and so er
surfaces. Says Gary Nicholls, MD of
Swi clean, “With this methodology we
can treat hard surfaces including light
switches, door handles, toilets, chairs, tables, telephones, IT equipment, desks,
hand rails and other fittings and equipment. This method also e ectively tackles
so er surfaces such as furniture upholstery, partitions, blinds, floor coverings
and all other surfaces within in each room.
“This is ideal for areas where there has been a suspected or confirmed case
of COVID-19, but it may also appeal to many building managers as a sensible
precaution where essential sta must continue to attend the premises and as a
safeguard before the full team returns to properties which are currently empty
while employees attempt to work from home.”

SIKA SARNAFIL PROTECTS UK’S FIRST
DEDICATED CENTRE FOR STROKE AND
Sika Sarnafil’s single ply roofing membrane
has been installed on the UK’s first dedicated
centre for stroke and dementia research
at the University of Oxford, providing a
long lasting waterproofing solution for this
The Wolfson Building is situated on the
University’s John Radcli e Hospital site.
The new neuroscience research building’s H-shape floor plan was designed to
symbolise the two departments’ collaborative relationship. When it came to the
roof, the facility required a robust and fully integrated waterproofing system that
would accommodate roof penetrations, walkway and PV requirements.
Sika Sarnafil, the UK’s leading single ply roofing manufacturer, was specifically
requested for the project and came on board during the early design stages to
help Oxford-based architect firm fjmt with the specification.
Sarnafil G410 12 ELF in Lead Grey along with Sarnavap HD were chosen to
weathertight the concrete slab room. Due to an uneven and rough surface,
a system had to be specified that would overcome this problem. Roofing
contractor Vertec liaised with Sika Sarnafil and opted to mechanically fix the
single ply to overcome this.
Further challenges were found due to the multiple penetrations in the roof,
numbering over 50, including cables, pipework and ducting. Opting to box them
in, all penetrations were successfully sealed thanks to expert workmanship from
Vertec’s Sika Sarnafil-trained installers.
