UV-C Light used in the fight against COVID-19

UV-C light is not a new technology. It has been in use since the late 1800’s and is a proven technology for killing bacteria, viruses, microorganisms, mould, for air and water purification. More recently, it was used effectively in the fight against SARS, MERS and Ebola.

It is one of the few technologies that is being used in the fight against the novel coronavirus that is spreading globally. Many institutions worldwide are now utilising the germicidal properties of UV-C to sainitise their premises. In order to effectively kill off any germs, the dosage of UV-C must be of sufficient output at 253.7nm.

As reports are emerging on the effectiveness of the UV-C technology, many companies are offering products incorporating the UV-C light.Be cautious when purchasing some of these products as the lamp wattage and UV-C output are very low and will not be effective in killing COVID-19.

Never expose skin or eyes directly to UV-C germicidal light, as this can cause damage. It will not tan nor should it be used on any part of the body as some reports in the media have suggested recently. The UV-C at 253.7nm breaks down the DNA of germs and is very different to UV-A and UV-B.

Due to the increase in demand, we have sold out of most of our UV-C products and now concentrating on providing the products most needed by our customers. Please visit our product pages to see what is available.

Stay safe and well and be kind to each other in this unprecedented time.

INNOVATION

We are the first company in the UK to supply hand held products using UV-C light technology that are specifically suited to use in a commercial environment.

Industrial scale UV-C purification units require rooms to be empty for safe usage and their size and cost mean they are not practical for all businesses or scenarios. With this in mind, we identified the need for lightweight yet powerful hand held appliances that could be used daily as part of best practice ‘belt and braces’ sterilising regime.

Far from resting on our laurels, we have continued to monitor academic research, develop the product range and remain vigilant for additional opportunities to further develop our offering.
