No. The far-UVC light is emitted by UV222™ at 222 nanometers and does not damage human skin or the human eye. UV222™ is equipped with a unique and patented safety filter technology that allows it to be used safely in occupied spaces.
The doses of UVC light emitted by UV222™ are in full compliance with the EU directive on health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to artificial optical radiation and guidelines from the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).
No. The EU directives and international safety guidelines regarding safe exposure to optical radiation apply to all age groups.
The doses of UVC light emitted by UV222™ are in full compliance with these directives and guidelines.
If you are diagnosed with any illnesses that make you hyper-sensitive to UVC light, we generally advise that you consult your doctor before using UV222™.
No. UV222™ has been tested on animals and the doses of far-UVC light emitted by the lamp are not harmful to animals.
The unique and patented safety filter technology of UV222™ blocks even the smallest amounts of harmful UVC light from being transmitted from the lamp.
Previously, when a far-UVC lamp was designed to emit far-UVC light of 222 nanometers, the lamp would inevitably emit small amounts of secondary emission in other wavelengths as well. These wavelengths can be harmful.
Our patented safety filter technology blocks unwanted wavelengths from emission.
No. UV222™ is installed at your facility by a UV Medico-authorised installer. Once installed and ready for use, the UV Medico Far-UVC Lamp is programmed to emit non-harmful doses only.
After the lamp is installed, it is not possible for the end-user to interfere with the configuration of the lamp by accident.
No. UV222™ is completely mercury-free.
UV222™ deactivates up to 99.9 percent of viruses (including SARS-CoV-2), bacteria, and other pathogens both in the air and on surfaces. Depending on the specific setup at your facilities, the lamp deactivates viruses, bacteria and pathogens within a radius of several meters.
Deactivated viruses (including SARS-CoV-2), bacteria, and other pathogens can no longer infect and therefore no longer cause disease.
It depends on the distance between the lamp and the area you want to disinfect.
However, in many instances, the disinfection process will be completed in less than two minutes and in some cases just a handful of seconds.
Remember that the area can be occupied while the disinfection takes place.
No. UV222™ is equipped with an on-off switch. Once you turn on the lamp, it self-regulates.
UV222™ automatically emits safe doses of far-UVC light in an interval that UV Medico and the UV Medico-authorised installer have deemed most effective according to your specific needs and setup.
1,995 euros ex. installation. The safety filter technology is included in the price.
There is a small light that will glow when the UV222™ is switched on. This is comparable to the small red light on a television, for example.
5,000+ hours. Since the lamp operates in intervals, you can rely on the same UV222™-unit for several years.
UV222™ is 278 mm (L) x 116 mm(w) x 65 mm (H). UV222™ is significantly smaller and more compact than any comparable far-UVC lamp on the market.
No. Installation is always taken care of by a UV Medico-authorised installer.
No maintenance is required to keep UV222™ fully functional. But if you want to remove dust, the lamp can withstand a damp cloth.
No. The far-UVC light is not visible.
No. At most, you might be able to hear a low hum if you place your ear right next to the lamp and listen very closely.
No. Also, you can touch the lamp without any physical discomfort.
