Our products which have been developed for over 80 years use a trusted blend of gasses to produce the most effective UV-C light on the market. UV-C light is a form of UV light which is a non-ionising form of radiation with a wavelength between 200nm-280n, our products produce a wavelength of 254nm. UV-C light is also known as germicidal light as it causes the DNA and RNA of microbes by breaking bonds between the Thymine and Adenine pair and glues two adjacent Thymine nucleotides together. This Process is irreversible and stops the microbes from undergoing mitosis and causing harm.
Our UV-C products have been proven to inactivate over 35,000 different microbes, the energy required to inactivate these microbes and any other relevant information is then stored in the data base which is one of the largest in the world.
Air filters Vs UV-C sterilisation
Medical Grade Air Purifiers:
The first rudimental air purifiers were created in the early 60s, with extremely limited progression in terms of their effectiveness, until recently they have only really been effective in their use since the early 2000s due to progression in HEPA filter technology.
Medical grade air purifiers are able to remove everything from dust to larger microbes from the air once it has passed through the system this is done by the HEPA filters which are embedded in the system. These filters are highly effective when they are first put in. however, as they start to become fuller the amount of air which the system will be able to draw through will be massively reduced due to the filter offering more resistance than when it was first installed. The filters of these systems also have to be changed regularly in order for the system to clean a respectable amount of air in a given time. This creates another risk for people in the workplace as when they are replaced the microbes would have had potentially months to fester on these filters and any disruption to the filter could quite easily make them airborne. HEPA filters are also costly to replace on an industrial scale if the efficiency of the system is to be maintained.
The best air purifiers on the market can only remove microbes larger than .3 of a micron, sure this sounds amazing but in reality many dehydrated microbes are smaller than this, this mean that the air purifiers are actually just glorified air filters as many of the ‘impurities’ are still in the airs circulation. This could lead to many employees having to take sick days which in 2018 cost UK employers nearly £80 bn. HEPA filters are also unable to stop coronavirus’s in the air stream as the average coronavirus is half as small as the smallest microbe that a HEPA filter can stop.
Our Air Sterilization Technology:
UV-C technology has been used for over 100 years and has been proven since Niels Finsen won a Nobel Prize in medicine for the use of UV against Tuberculosis and our technology has existed since 1939. Our proven health-tech was used to combat super bugs such as MRSA and SARS in hospital operating rooms as it had been proven effective for other similar bugs.
Our Technology is able to inactive over 35,000 different types of microbe ranging from SARS & MRSA to types of Coronavirus. It does this by gulling two adjacent thymine nucleotides together which inactivates the microbe making it harmless. Our UV-C technology is cheap to maintain as the only part of the system that needs to be changed are the lights themselves which are relatively inexpensive, and they are highly efficient at inactivating microbes for around 12,000 hours. When our light fittings are changed there is no risk to the person changing them as all microbes within its vicinity would have been inactivated by the light prior to it being changed
