Benefits of FAR UVC

UV Differences

No need for sub-standard solutions like fogging / misting anymore, when there are UVC LED lights available, proven to work and chemical free, a great no-maintenance sanitation solution. 

  • Proven to Kill 99.9% of pathogens and viruses. 
  • Chemical-free 
  • No refills or replacements needed 
  • Quick turnaround – Depending on the size of the room and unit used we can disinfect up to 99.9% of a 25 square metre space in less than 4 minutes 
  • Mobile. So great for large and small rooms, operating rooms and clinical settings 
  • Easy to use, no special training required 
  • Eco friendly
  • Durable

UVC LED technology is quite simply one of the best long term solutions for the healthcare industry. It works every time, it works beautifully, and it will stand the test of time.

The International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) believes that UV disinfection technologies can play a role in a multiple barrier approach to reducing the transmission of the virus causing COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, based on current disinfection data and empirical evidence. UV is a known disinfectant for air, water and surfaces that can help to mitigate the risk of acquiring an infection in contact with the COVID-19 virus when applied correctly. “The IUVA has assembled leading experts from around the world to develop guidance on the effective use of UV technology, as a disinfection measure, to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 virus. Established in 1999, the IUVA is a nonprofit dedicated to the advancement of ultraviolet technologies to help address public health and environmental concerns,” says Dr. Ron Hofmann, Professor at the University of Toronto, and President of the IUVA.

The Big Question, IS FAR UVC safe?

Like any disinfection system, UVC devices must be used properly to be safe.) They all produce varying amounts of UVC light in wavelengths of 200nm-280nm. This UVC light is much “stronger” than normal sunlight, and can cause a severe sunburn-like reaction to your skin. The target tissue in the eye would be the cornea (rather than the retina). The effect on the cornea is called photokeratitis, which is also known as welder’s flash or snow-blindness, is like a sunburn of the eye. It’s unlikely that any of the UVC light would penetrate through the cornea and then lens to reach the retina because of the short wavelength (i.e. high frequency).

Some devices also produce ozone as part of their cycle, others produce light and heat like an arc welder, others move during their cycles. Hence, general machine-human safety needs to be considered with all disinfection devices, and these considerations should be addressed in the operations manual, in the user training, and appropriate safety compliance.

Are there performance standards and UVC validation protocols for UV disinfection devices?

FAR UVC DISINFECT

Given the wide array of UVC devices marketed for disinfection of air, water and solid surfaces, the lack of uniform performance standards and the highly variable degree of research, development and validation testing that is performed on different devices, the IUVA urges consumers to exercise caution when selecting equipment and look for evidence of third party testing as well as certification of device materials and electrical components by well-known organizations such as NSF, UL, CSA, DVGW-OVGW or other international requirements as applicable.

For UVC devices designed to inactivate air and solid surfaces in the healthcare industry, members of IUVA are working diligently with other national standards organizations in the lighting and healthcare industry to develop disinfection testing standards[x]. The goal is to develop guidance that will help healthcare providers world-wide choose the best possible technologies for their institutions to use in the fight against multiple drug resistant organisms and other pathogens[xi], like the COVID-19 virus.

FAR UVC Light

Now Available in Malta!

  • FAR-UVC light has a shorter wavelength and higher photon energy than UV-C, making its effect on microorganisms different from UV disinfection lamps that are most commonly used.
  • FAR-UVC light is able to cause physical destruction of viral, bacterial, and fungal cells in a matter of seconds, much faster than UV-C lamps
  • FAR-UVC light disinfection (222nm wavelengths) provides the first human and animal safe, practical and effective counter-measure for infectious disease and pathogens in occupied spaces

The FAR-UVC Difference

UV Differences

FAR UVC

– FAR-UVC is safe for animals and humans and does not penetrate the skin or eyes

– FAR-UVC destroys all pathogens including Omicron!

CONVENTIONAL UV

– UV-C causes skin and eye disease and is not safe to use in occupied areas

– UV-C deactivates pathogens that can then photosynthesis making them active again

FAR UVC

SUPERIOR OPTION

FAR-UVC lighting is the first safe, effective, autonomous and continuous disinfection system for occupied spaces

While the best current alternative for sanitation in occupied spaces requires workers to constantly wipe down chairs, counters and any other surface between contact with each individual, it is not practical in practice, puts those workers at risk and is subject to human error, like missing spots. Not to mention, wiping surfaces down does not address the airborne threat at all

FAR UVC

SAFE FOR HUMANS

FAR-UVC light does not penetrate human and/or animal skin or eyes.

UV-C lamps commonly available today are known to be carcinogenic and harmful to the skin and eyes. They cannot sanitize human tissue or occupied spaces without causing adverse effects and long-term damage

FAR UVC

EFFECTIVE FOR SANITISING

FAR-UVC lamps (operating at 222nm) are superior to existing UV sanitation systems (typically operating at 254nm) in occupied spaces for a very simple reason:

Legacy UV-C sanitation systems are ineffective at disinfecting surfaces and air in occupied spaces because the kill mechanism allows pathogens to be reactivated by UV-A light, which includes sunlight, fluorescent lights and other light sources after sanitation.
