In this article it will be explained How to make a CAB ANTIVIRUS or DES POLLUTANT, you can find the plans for its download, but before we will explain the background that defines the design of this CABIN.
Contact with other people has been shown to be the main source of infection when contracting any virus, and in particular this CORONAVIRUS. This type of virus is considered a HEAVY virus and has an interpersonal radius of action of 1.50 meters (150 centimeters)
It is also known that this virus can be permanent on any medium or surface for up to 72 hours from its contact. So if the virus is present in our CLOTHING, we can contaminate spaces if we go from one place to another without due precaution.
This is why DECONTAMINATION is VITAL to avoid transmitting or spreading this virus. But how can we carry out an EFFECTIVE decontamination before entering any space? We can do this by means of an ANTI VIRUS OR DECONTAMINANT CABIN.
How to make a CAB ANTIVIRUS or DES POLLUTANT
In any space where activities are carried out, it is important to have a VIRUS FREE ENVIRONMENT, but even more so, in OUR FAMILY SPACE. In these times of Coronavirus we have wanted to propose a CABIN TYPE furniture that helps HAVE the interior of the houses WITHOUT VIRUSES.
This is a proposal for a decontaminating cabin that can be installed in front of the main door of any home. And it is designed so that it can be transported by parts in any TRUCK or VAN.
CABIN ANTIVIRUS or DES POLLUTANT
This is a first cabin IDEA, the materials that have been used are materials that COULD be found in any house of sale of construction materials. The design is SIMPLE and as you can see it is very similar to what was previously used as a TELEPHONE CABIN. And what you are looking for is to propose decontamination ALTERNATIVES so that ANY person can manufacture it.
This ANTI VIRUS OR DECONTAMINANT CABIN has a square shape at its base and its measurements are 1.24 meters (124cm) long and deep. Its height is 2.49 meters (249cm). Measures that are proposed to save space and easy transport without neglecting the MINIMUM interior space necessary for proper spatial ergonomics.
This design can have ONLY ONE USER AT A TIME, for a higher occupant demand more than one CABIN can be installed.
Its base structure is raised by means of metal tubes, and the rest of the structure by angles of the same material, which will be fixed by bolts and nuts. WE ARE DESIGNING A LIGHTER AND ECONOMIC PROPOSAL WITH PALLETS that can be more economical.
It can be installed outdoors as its exterior materials withstand inclement weather outside. But if required it can be located in an interior space.
Contains a footbath for decontaminating the sole of the shoes that can bring any type of virus from outside. This footbath will have a water mirror approximately 1cm deep that will contain the necessary products for proper disinfection. It may be connected to a filling tap or tap and its respective drain for the evacuation of liquids once used.
It will contain the following components or internal FURNITURE: A sink, with a shelf and mirror included, a cupboard to classify the clothes used indoors or outdoors, a dirty laundry basket, a bench for changing shoes, containing some spaces to leave shoes (SHOE).
The material for its main envelope OR COATING will be made by means of a translucent insulating material layer. Since it is a small space, it will not cause CLAUSTROFOBIA problems.
The furniture can be made with tropicalized MDF or the well-known RH that is resistant to humidity, these can have a smooth melamine finish layer for protection and cleaning (formica)
It has a leveling system in case the surface or floor where it is going to be located is not level. This mechanism will serve in unevenness NOT greater than 5 cm, and that helps to stabilize and have a surface without movement.
It may have a connection with drinking water and a drain for proper operation.
For better INSULATION from the CAB to the HOME, an accordion-type SLEEVE has been thought to seal the passage from the ANTIVIRUS CAB to the entrance to the HOUSE.
For the renewal of air inside, being a closed cabin, the circulation and renewal of air will be carried out by means of an air pump with OZONE. Or depending on the budget, an electric air extractor with a filter may be installed.
HOW TO USE A DECONTAMINATING CABIN
We have prepared these images as a brief description of the USE OF THIS ANTI VIRUS OR DECONTAMINANT CABIN
1.-When returning from the street we can access through the door.
2.- As a first step for DECONTAMINATION, the shoes that come from the outside will be immersed in a SHOE LAUNDRY in which we must stay for 30 seconds.
3.- Change of footwear, the change of shoes will be carried out to AVOID CONTAMINATION by means of any VIRUS found in the plant of these shoes.
4.- Change of clothes, for the same reason the change of clothes WILL BE MANDATORY for a correct asepsis, we should not use the same clothes from outside to inside.
5.-Hand washing, in this CABIN you can wash your hands several times if required.
6.- And safe cabin exit, once all the aforementioned steps have been carried out, we can continue through the EXIT door that will be connected by means of a sleeve made of metal and plastic structure that will seal the way from the CABIN to OUR BEST DESTINATION.
