We’re open.. Here at Sunsquare HQ, we will be operating as usual during this lockdown period. We are a British manufacturer and have been able to maintain COVID-19 safe site teams by taking extra precautions, including PPE, temperature checks and fogging vehicles. Lead times will not be affected as our factories are currently in full swing. The safety of our staff and customers is our top priority so we will continue to adhere to all government guidelines.
The issue of ventilation within buildings is included in Part F of the UK’s Building Regulations which outlines industry standards for air quality and ventilation. These building regulations state that it is important that ventilation is controllable, either by manual or automatic controls, so that reasonable indoor air quality can be maintained.
