Germicidal UV-C Applications > Martial Arts Studios, Health Clubs, Fitness Centers, Gyms, Dance Studios, Yoga Studios
The Missing Component: Germicidal UV
Fitness facilities, like any transient location where people come and go, must maintain rigorous sanitation procedures to prevent diseases from spreading. The harmful microorganisms that may plague these places can be transmitted through the air or on surfaces. Members of studios for the martial arts, dance, and yoga are often barefoot or having direct contact with others’ skin. These locations are particularly vulnerable to bacteria harbored by inadequately-disinfected surfaces — such as Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA.
Germicidal UV air and surface sanitizers make the difference between a good disinfection routine and a great one — and they could prevent the outbreak of disease at your fitness facility. Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts in Smithtown, NY is one studio that has chosen to add UV-C to its disinfection procedure. Read their story below or download our Case Study PDF .

The Challenge: Improving Mat Disinfection at Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts Studios
With 25 years training and 15 years in business, Sensei James Leonelli knew the level of attention that must be paid to disinfection. While he’d already been using a hospital-grade liquid disinfection cleaner throughout his martial arts studio, the events of the COVID-19 Pandemic convinced him to take his disinfection procedures to the next level — especially in the mat area, which is a high-touch zone.
The Solution: UV-C Disinfection
Tiger Schulmann’s of Smithtown chose to work with Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation®, which has 58 years of experience in the UV-C technologies industry.
The UV Application Engineer recommended Sanidyne® Prime Remote Germicidal UV Portable Air and Surface Sanitizers (8-Lamp Model) for use in unoccupied areas after traditional disinfection procedures are complete, to ensure inactivation of infectious microorganisms such as bacteria, mold, and viruses.
By including germicidal ultraviolet (UV-C) air and surface disinfection to their procedure, Tiger Schulmann’s will protect their students from future outbreaks — not only from surfaces, but from the air and hard-to-reach areas that may not be contacted by liquid cleaning solutions.
The Sanitizer: Sanidyne Germicidal Ultraviolet Portable Air & Surface Disinfection
The Sanidyne® Prime Remote is made in the USA. It utilizes 8 STER-L-RAY® High Output (HO) Germicidal Ultraviolet (UV-C) Lamps to purify air and exposed surfaces in unoccupied areas. These special lamps generate high levels of germicidal ultraviolet rays lethal to infectious bacteria, mold, and viruses that can be present in your martial arts studio. Germicidal ultraviolet disinfection dosage is a function of time and intensity to which the air and surrounding surfaces are exposed.

Sanidyne® Prime Remote Germicidal Ultraviolet Portable Area Sanitizers must be utilized during periods when the area is unoccupied. Entrances to area must be restricted and supplied Danger Signs must be posted.
Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts of Smithtown has a mat area that is 1,330 square feet (about 38 feet by 33 feet). There is a support column just off center. Two disinfection sessions were needed to get both sides of the column and all of the mat. Session #1 was 25 minutes and Session #2 was an additional 25 minutes.
