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. Our new luminaire range includes upper air luminaires that disinfect passing air, open UV-C luminaires and UV-C trolleys that disinfect rooms and locations when no-one is present, and UV-C chambers that disinfect objects.
The challenge for UV-C disinfecting lighting
UV-C radiation is a known disinfectant for air, water and surfaces that can help mitigate the risk of acquiring an infection and has been used extensively for more than 40 years1. All bacteria and viruses tested to date (many hundreds over the years, including various coronaviruses) respond to UV-C disinfection2. In laboratory testing, Signify’s UV-C light sources reduced SARS-CoV-2 virus infectivity on a surface to below detectable levels in as few as 9 seconds3. A clear indication that UV-C light can play a valuable part in your protection strategy.
