|Veteran LED is incredibly proud to help Silver Diner and Silver, American Brasserie, become the first restaurant group in the country to install customized air filtration, purification and UV-C light systems throughout their 20 restaurants.
Starting today, the restaurants are using the system as part of their commitment to employee and customer health and wellness, while making dining indoors as close as you can come to outdoor dining.
Veteran LED designed the system, which includes germicidal UV-C light, bipolar ionization technology and HEPA filtration. Air purifiers, mounted throughout each restaurant, work to continuously clean the air by using all three technologies simultaneously.
Germicidal UV-C lights installed throughout the HVAC system work to disinfect air and surfaces inside the system. Heavy duty, handheld UV-C light sterilizers are being used on high-touch areas as part of the closing duties of the staff. At night, when the restaurant is closed, the interior is bathed in germicidal UV-C light to help kill pathogens in the air and sterilize surfaces.
“Our goal is to make indoor dining as safe as possible to outdoor dining,” Silver Diner group Co-founder and President Robert Giaimo says. “We are investing in this because we believe this is the restaurant model of the future.”
“This pandemic is forcing businesses, engineers, architects and more, to rethink how proven technology and a little innovation can go a long way in helping to support a safer environment for all building occupants,” Veteran LED Chief Efficiency Officer Chris Rawlings says.
“Air quality and healthy environments are on the forefront of all of our minds right now," Rawlings continues. “We’re obligated to use our resources and knowledge, based on scientific evidence, to effectively address this concern.”
Silver Diner serves three million customers a year. We hope you’ll stop by for a fresh, delicious meal soon.
