High Intensity Full-Range Ultraviolet An Aggressive Approach to COVID-19 Mitigation
Covid-19 has presented the snow sports industry with significant challenges. The good news is that Ultra-Tech™ Lighting is already well known in the industry for its unique induction light approach to slope illumination. That experience translates in tailored sanitizing solutions for winter venues. Ultra-Tech™ Lighting has developed Sterile-Bright™, a multi-tiered approach to surface and air sterilization using a combination of powerful UV light that directly decomposes pathogens from its radiation and generates significant ozone (O3) that acts as a strong sterilizing agent. This combination provides an optimum solution for sterilizing surfaces and spaces (air). SterileBright™ attacks DNA and cell wall integrity. Using a specialized carrier frequency approach, ionizing radiation below 200nm can travel further through the atmosphere before being neutralized by oxygen and nitrogen. This approach provides a more effective “kill rate” at longer distances and creates ancillary sterilization agents including hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) from atmospheric water. The multiple sterilization pathways generated by Sterile-Bright™ combines mutually exclusive and proven disinfection and sanitization modalities for the most comprehensive and effective non-chemical approach* that addresses bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores. The light also effectively destroys larvae and other pests. The specific application introduces disinfectants (O3 and H2O2) with very short half-lives to ensure a safe post treatment environment. Ozone and hydrogen peroxide vapor quickly dissipate under normal circumstances and do not pose health hazards after treatment. Sterile-Bright™ technology is far less expensive than burst xenon UV generators and other approaches. With an operating lifecycle exceeding 100,000 hours, the service exceeds eleven years when operating 24 hours by 365 days per year. http://ultratechlighting.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/COVID-19.pdf

Wintersteiger’s Future of Rental products and workflows were developed prior to the onset of the Cronovirus Pandemic. These products are also uniquely suited to support the social distancing necessary to slow the spread of the virus.
One of the best methods to process rentals is online reservations and pre-setting equipment. With pre-set equipment the time the guest needs to spend in the rental shop is drastically reduced.
Easygate, an automated queuing system allows patrons to remove themselves from the physical line and be called by voice, email or SMS when it is their turn.
The Vandra 3D scanner removes the need for direct measurement of boot size and limits the time for boot-fitting.
With the SizeFit Home and Caliper Devices, binding to boot adjustment can be performed without the customer present whether renting a boot or using their own.
