To reduce mold and bacteria growth within buildings, particularly from water damage or condensation on cooling coils.
Part 1: Cooling Coil Mold Reduction
In buildings that rely on a mechanical system for cooling, one of the following requirements is met:
Ultraviolet lamps (using a wavelength of 254 nm so as not to generate ozone) are employed on the cooling coils and drain pans of the mechanical system supplies. Irradiance reaching the cooling coil and drain pan, including the plenum corners, is modeled.
Building policy states that all cooling coils are inspected on a quarterly basis for mold growth and cleaned if necessary. Dated photos demonstrating adherence are provided to the IWBI on an annual basis.
Part 2: Mold Inspections
The following are not present:
- Signs of discoloration and mold on ceilings, walls or floors.
- Signs of water damage or pooling.
See detailed requirement for Microbe and mold control
Benefitting our green architecture agenda, GYPROC offers a range of moisture resistant gypsum and plasterboards that are ideal for humid spaces such as bathrooms and kitchens. Having strong water repellent properties, they can act alone or as a base for ceramic tiles, to help resist any damage caused by humidity. These systems make maintenance easy by reducing the amount of inspection required for detecting signs of water infiltration, surface discoloration, mold and other bacterial growth.
We offer a range of products that are highly effective in creating a thermal barrier where cold air is kept out and warm air is held on the inside. Air gaps created behind GYPROC panel systems prevent thermal bridging and protect against moisture infiltration
Full BBA certification on weather protection; its Gypsum core contains special additives for moisture and mould resistance.
