The Challenge for UV-C disinfecting lighting

The quality of the air we breathe, the cleanness of surfaces and objects we touch, and the purity of water we drink have a profound effect on our health and well-being. We’re all at risk of contracting and spreading viruses and bacteria, especially in busy public areas like the shops, offices, factories, bars or restaurants, schools, museums and on public transport.

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.
