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