Common questions

Your question not answered here? Please reach out anytime!

What is UV Technology?

The spectral range of UV light is, by definition, between 100 and 400 nm and is invisible to the human eyes. The UV spectrum is divided into UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. The method of UV technology is based on the natural disinfection action of the sun's rays. A strong germicidal effect is provided by the light in the short-wave UV-C band, which helps to inactivate bacteria, viruses, mold, and spores.

What are the benefits of UV-C technology?

UV-C technology is proven to defeat micro-organisms from viruses, bacteria, molds and spores. This technology is also able to keep the surface of water reservoirs lean from biofilm and are ideal for use in ventilation air ducts, air disinfection units, or stand-alone air purifiers to help protect against airborne pathogens as well as micro-organisms present on surfaces.

Has UV-C Technology been tested on viruses like SARS-CoV-2?

Yes! Tests done on a Philips UV-C Light source at Boston University revealed that just after 9 seconds, the virus causing COVID-19 was found to be below detectable levels. Additionally, the UV-C disinfection upper air wall mount luminaires inactivated 99.99% of SARS-CoV-2 in the air of a room within 10 minutes. At 20 minutes, the virus was below detectable levels. All viruses tested to date, including the seasonal flu, can be inactivated by UV-C light.

Where can UV-C Lighting be installed?

UV-C Lighting can be installed in a wide range of applications, including: hospitals, schools, retail stores, hair & beauty salons, office buildings. hospitality & residential properties, grocery stores, public washrooms, and even on transportation.

Over the past 35 years we’ve developed strong UV-C application expertise. It has allowed us to develop a broad range of effective UV-C lamps, luminaires, devices, control systems and services. These can be used in a variety of air, surface, object and water disinfection applications.
