A breakthrough in disinfection
Traditional disinfecting UV lamps are very effective against pathogens but they also emit light at harmful wavelengths and can only be used in unoccupied spaces.
The UV lamp UV222™ mainly emits light at a wavelength of 222 nanometers (nm). It deactivates viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 and antibiotic-resistant bacteria without causing harm to humans.
This means that UV222™ can be used in both unoccupied and occupied spaces, highly increasing its effectiveness and usability against the spreading of infectious diseases.
UV222™ is effective in all indoor and outdoor environments where people gather.
UV222™ is particularly effective when applied to so-called contact points where it disinfects viruses in the air and on surfaces.
Contact points are high-traffic or high-touch areas in an indoor or outdoor environment, such as:
Contact points drive the spread of infectious diseases such as SARS-CoV-2. UV222™ deactivates up to 99.9 percent of viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens in contact points. This significantly reduces the spread of infectious diseases.
Effectiveness and safety are the two most important benefits of UV222™
But there are some additional key benefits that you should know about:
Protection against diseases from viruses including SARS-CoV-2, bacteria, and other pathogens. By emitting far-UVC, UV222™ deactivates up to 99.9 percent of pathogens both in the air and on surfaces within just a few minutes.
UV222™ emits non-harmful doses of far-UVC light at a wavelength of 222 nm. The lamp is fitted with a unique and patented safety filter technology to completely avoid any harmful wavelengths. As a result, you can also use the lamp to disinfect occupied spaces, which represents a major breakthrough in disinfection lamps available at affordable prices.
Small, compact, and low-maintenance far-UVC lamp for €1,995 per lamp (ex. installation) with safety filter technology, and a lifetime of 5,000+ hours included in the price.
UV222™ is easy to implement in most environments such as bars, restaurants, doctors' waiting rooms, and other places with high levels of human activity.
UV222™ operates in compliance with all the relevant directives and regulations regarding exposure to artificial optical radiation. With our unique and patented safety filter technology, we offer the safest far-UVC lamp in the market.
UV light has been used for over a century to disinfect environments by removing viruses and bacteria. However, most UV light is also harmful to human tissue. This means that people, fx doctors and nurses, cannot be present in the room when the light is on. However, this has all changed with UV222™.
