Sanitise with the power of UV light

UV-C Light is a proven and efficient way to disinfect air, surfaces and objects. 

What is UV Light?

Ultraviolet light is invisible to the human eye and falls into three types:

  • UV-A (from 315-400nm)
    Used for curing, sun tanning, insect traps
     

  • UV-B (from 280-315nm)
    Medical treatment for skin conditions
     

  • UV-C (from 200-280nm)
    Disinfection purposes and germicidal application

UV-C Radiation can break down the RNA and DNA of viruses, bacteria and spores, leaving them harmless and unable to reproduce.

No known micro-organisms are resistant to UVC

Now let's see UV technology in action

UV-C radiation is a known disinfectant for air, surfaces and objects that can help mitigate the risk of acquiring an infection.

What is UV technology?


Ultra-Violet (UV) light is invisible to the human eye and is divided into UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. UV-C is found within 100-280 nm range. The germicidal action is maximised at 265 nm. Philips Low pressure UV-C lamps have their main emission at 254 nm where the action on DNA is 85% of the peak value. As a result, our germicidal lamps are extremely effective in breaking down the DNA and RNA of micro-organisms. 


This means that they cannot replicate and cause disease.


The technology has primarily been used in areas where there is a risk of microbiological contamination, and has been used safely and effectively for more than 40 years
