What Is UVC and how can it keep our Hotels and Restaurants Safe in the 21st century???

There is a very good reason that the hotel industry has looked to UVC germicidal technology as a means to safely disinfect the Air and Surface environments, simply put it works every time without ever needing chemicals, refills, replacements or leaving residue behind.

UVC Explained

UVC has played a big part in keeping us safe and healthy for well over a century.  The history of studying UVC as a way to kill bacteria and other organisms dates back to as early as 1845, when it became known that microorganisms respond to light. In fact Niels Ryberg Finsen won a Nobel prize in 1903 for his work on using UVC as a means to fight the spread of disease.

 

UVC Santisation

 

Operating in the invisible light spectrum UV light can be broken down into 3 general categories UVA, UVB & UVC. UltraViolet A & UltraViolet B is what we feel on our bodies when we step outside on a sunny day, but Earth's atmosphere filters out the sun's irradiation in the UltraViolet C (UVC) band. This is a really good thing as no microorganisms can survive its irradiation power.

Once you can achieve a wavelength of light between 200 and 280 nanometers you have a germicidal lamp in the UVC range. It works on the basic principle of Time * Intensity * Distance. The bigger the light, the smaller the space the shorter the disinfections time.

Top 10 Reasons UVC LED should be considered as part of the solution

  1. Chemical free disinfection - no refills, no replacement parts, no residue, no downtime between disinfection cycles
  2. Long life : 8,000 - 10,000 hrs of continual usage. It takes approximately 7 minutes per Hotel room.
  3. Cost Effective - low running costs associated with LED technology. Up to 120,000 rooms disinfected during lifespan of light 
  4. Works Every Time - based on the principle of Time * Intensity * Distance in UVC wavelength
  5. Easy to eliminate Viruses such as Sars Cov 2 - the virus that causes Covid 19 can be deactivated in minutes
  6. No Mercury Vapor or Ozone that are normally associated with UVC tube lights.
  7. Designed for ease of use by hotel staff, easy to store, can be wheeled to any part of the hotel and turned on with a simple push of a button. Robust LED lights are designed to last in the work environment
  8. Adaptable to different situations - Our mobile units can be easily transported to any environment for quick disinfection cycles.
  9. Safety is our priority along with microwave shut off sensors. Our lights are equipped with an array of safety features such as timers, sound delays and preset on/off controls.
  10. Power options from 15 watts to 600 watts makes our UVC LEDs lights the most versatile and powerful on the market.- based on the principle of
