State-of-the-art robots that can automatically sanitise a whole building are in high demand from Swansea-based company Evolve Raybotix – the only UK supplier of the new machines, which were developed by its parent company specifically to tackle Covid-19.

The new ‘sanibot’ is helping hotels reassure potential guests that they are safe to stay with them and are being used to sanitise hotel bedrooms. Along with hotels adopting high standards in linen disinfection, this a move that can only help to encourage guests to book breaks.

Hundreds of the robots have been supplied worldwide to businesses including restaurants, hotels, cinemas, sports centres and offices, as well as clinics and schools. The UV-C Ozone disinfection robots use UV-C light supported by an ozone generating function for maximum disinfection and peace of mind. These robots come in three sizes: the Evolve Raybotix SOL, the Evolve Raybotix EOS and the Evolve Raybotix NEO, enabling application to a wide range of sectors and spaces, including textile care businesses.

Martin Morgan of Morgans Hotel Swansea (pictured with Evolve Raybotics' director Amin Farah) said: “When we heard that this technology was available in Swansea, we immediately requested a demonstration as it is an ideal solution to swift sanitisation of hotel rooms on changeover.  Guests have full confidence that their room, which is sealed following the disinfection process, has been sanitised to the highest possible standard. We strive to offer a premium service at Morgans Hotel and this demonstrates we are going the extra mile to restore public confidence in the hospitality sector.”

The automated machines map surroundings and use a combination of UV-C light and ozone to kill 99.9 percent of microorganisms on all surfaces by destroying their DNA structures. It’s an environmentally friendly and chemical-free way to quickly and safely eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses. Cleaning times start from just six minutes. As well as being quick and thorough, these machines have minimal operating costs.

Evolve Raybotics director Amin Farah said: “We’re proud to be the only UK supplier of these unique disinfection robots. Our parent company worked hard to develop a practical and powerful solution to the pandemic, and the result is a game changer for businesses and organisations needing to swiftly disinfect their premises. Our robots provide a safe and thorough way to ensure peace of mind for staff and customers and have been in high demand here in the UK. We’re receiving an increasing number of enquiries as word spreads about what these robots can do.”
