Local Businesses donate sanitation tunnels to help curb the spread of covid-19 in schools

Businessman Jack Chetty in partnership with Ukuakha projects donated sanitation tunnels to Eastern Cape Department of Education. 

ECDOE spokesperson Malibongwe Mtima said that tunnels have proven effective in other parts of the world in curbing the spread of the COVID 19 virus. 

"Members of #ImfundoFamily at our offices will now be able to walk into work sanitised, practise social distancing and work so that we save the academic year" said Mtima. 

Speaking on the donation, SG Themba Kojana said the donation is a sign of love for the community. “Businesses and individuals like Mr Chetty are truly exemplary and they show why the Imfundo Family continues to grow and thrive despite very large challenges. We need more businesses to look deep into their pockets and see how they can come on board to assist our drive to making schools safer and learners and teachers healthier so learning take place. We are incredibly grateful to Ukuakha for their donation.”

The tunnel serves to sanitise and decontaminate items and people when combined with appropriately atomised biocides or virucide spray.

These sanitary and decontamination Tunnels and Gates represent a safe protection and entry for everyone, in particular for those who work in close contact with groups and are therefore at higher risk. It can be installed at the entrance of public offices, pharmacies, supermarkets, airports, hospitals, stations and schools. 

They are suitable for all private companies who need to sanitise the workforce, goods, vehicles and materials.

The tunnels create an obligatory passage and is equipped with, internal arc-shaped atomising nozzles that saturate the environment but preventing dispersions. The nebulisation system is connected to a control system capable of automatically mixing the sanitising product at percentages indicated by the manufacturer. Access to the tunnel is regulated by a traffic light with motion detection. By placing a barrier floor inside the Sanitary Gate, it is possible to sanitise the surface in contact with the ground. 

The automated tunnel sanitisers will only be at the head office until schools reopen when they will be transported to schools who have need of them.
