English Gallagher Premiership rugby union club, Harlequins, have become the first UK professional sports club – and the first in rugby – to install UV-C disinfection lighting at its home ground. In collaboration with Signify, the world leader in lighting, Twickenham Stoop Stadium is now equipped for a safer future. Signify’s UV-C Partner, Powercorm has installed 11 UV-C disinfection upper air units in the Honours Bar. This area at The Stoop is normally reserved for season ticket members, but currently serves as the home team players’ dressing room. Players will be the first to benefit from the new safety measures, with members also able to enjoy a safer and more hygienic atmosphere when the venue can once again open its doors to the public.
