Common Questions

What is ultraviolet (UV) light?
Ultraviolet light is a type of electromagnetic radiation that can be transmitted in waves or particles at different wavelengths and frequencies.
What is germicidal UV light?
Germicidal ultraviolet light is UV light that inactivates microorganisms by disrupting their DNA. The degree of disinfection is related to the spectrum of UV, the intensity, and the duration.
What are the different types of UV light?
The types of UV light include • UVA: UVA accounts for approximately 95 percent of the UV radiation reaching the Earth’s surface. It is responsible for tanning, skin aging, and wrinkling, and is an effective disinfectant for many common bacteria.

UVB: Most solar UVB is filtered by the atmosphere and is responsible for delayed skin burn and skin aging. It significantly promotes the development of skin cancer and is a highly effective disinfectant for many common bacteria.

UVC: This is the most biologically damaging type of UV radiation and is completely filtered by the atmosphere. It does not reach the Earth’s surface. It is extremely effective for both bacteria and viruses. GERMICIDAL UV LIGHTING

Can germicidal UV light kill both bacteria and viruses including the coronavirus?
All types of UV light can inactivate bacteria with the correct direct exposure time and intensity. The UV- C spectrum is the only UV light proven to inactivate viruses and is believed to inactivate coronavirus, but can be dangerous to humans when directly exposed.
Is there clinical data showing the effectiveness of UV-C light in deactivating Coronavirus?
There are a number of studies, one of the key studies is from Columbia University proving that Far-UVC light (222 nm) efficiently and safely inactivates airborne human coronaviruses, the study is presented by Manuela Buonanno, David Welch, Igor Shuryak & David J. Brenner, this was done with 222nm, which is weaker than most UV-C lamps used at ceiling height which is 254nm, which is more effective.
Are there safety concerns with germicidal UV-C light?
There are very serious health conditions that can develop due to exposure to germicidal ultraviolet light if not properly designed, installed, and maintained. Over exposure to Skin of germicidal wavelengths can produce skin reddening and skin cancer and direct exposure of the eye to germicidal wavelengths can produce serious vision problems.
What are the safety guidelines associated with germicidal UV light?
Safety guidelines can be found from the following sources: • National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health • World Health Organization • The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection • The Center for Disease Control
Where is germicidal ultraviolet light being safely installed?
In hospitals and healthcare systems that are highly concerned with infections, particularly bacterial and viral infections.

THE ELECTROMAGNETIC BAND OF 254NM UV-C LIGHT IS EFFECTIVE

Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) short wave 254nm light is able to inactivate foreign pathogens by damaging nucleic acid, forming pyrimidine dimmer, inhibiting DNA/RNA replication, rendering them an inactive cellular function.

IMMEDIATE EXPOSURE TO UV-C light 254nm...
damages the DNA and RNA cells, so that they can't replicate, effectively killing or inactivating a microorganism or virus. The energy to excite doubly bonded molecules into a permanent chemical rearrangement, causing lasting damage to DNA and RNA, ultimately killing the cell, upper-air purification has proven to be very effective to supplement existing controls for TBC and other airborne diseases.

UV-C LIGHT 99.9% PROVEN TO...
eliminate all foreign pathogens, Moulds, Bacteria and Viruses, substantial data has been gained in showing the effectiveness of UV-C light, which provides a safe air purified facility, UV germicidal irradiation provides a potent, cost-effective solution against contaminated air. These droplet nuclei can be inhaled, spreading infections. It is estimated that up to 99% of airborne pathogens are destroyed.

WITHIN THE ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM...
far-UVC light 254 nm has been shown to be as efficient and it the most commonly employed type of UV-C light for germicidal application, which is a low-pressure mercury-vapor arc lamp, emitting around 254 nm; Many disease-causing organisms circulate on air currents in "droplet nuclei", 1 to 5 micron in size, that are expelled with a cough, sneeze or even with speech.

WHY TECHNILAMP* LUMINAIRES ARE SAFE TO HUMAN SKIN AND EYES

Luminaire's are placed at ceiling height, with its patented design of reflectors and louvers beams a powerful narrow light, which is not directly exposed to human skin and eyes, below ceiling height, allowing for normal public activity to take place.

THE TECHNILAMP* PATENTED DESIGN...
emits a narrow band of UV-C light, is placed near the top of the celling and achieves two objectives, not to expose light to human contact and provide a powerful narrow beam of light that eliminates foreign airborne pathogens, across the whole ceiling ensuring flat broad coverage.

PHILIPS UV LAMPS (UV-C) - CHEMICALLY FREE...
UV-C germicidal irradiation provides a potent, cost-effective solution to upgrade protection against infection. Especially, upper-air purification has proven to be very effective. As there is no use of chemicals, this provides pure clean air that does not have harmful contaminants, such as harmful chemicals.

LUMINAIRE PLACED AT CEILING HEIGHT...
negates any possibility of UV-C light shining directly onto skin and exposure to eyes, this allows the normal day to day activity to take place in offices, gyms, schools, or any public area. While eliminating foreign pathogens 24 hours 7 days a week, without interruption, which is key to ensure purified air.

HOW DOES CONVECTION OF AIR ASSIST IN THE ELIMINATION OF FOREIGN PATHOGENS?

As determined by the law of Convection of airflow, that dictates that HOT air rises and COOL air descends, viruses attach to dust particles, and as part of the foreign pathogens move upwards, towards the kill zone.

CONVECTION OF AIR DICTATES...
that HOT air rises and COOL descends, this is enhanced by a fan or air conditioners that move pathogens upwards to the kill zone, air has a low absorption coefficient and hence allows UV-C to attack micro-organism present.

FOREIGN PATHOGENS ATTACH TO DUST...
as part of natural circulation dust particles moves with the flow of air, it is this movement of dust particles that moves the virus that is attached into the Kill zone at ceiling height where it is eliminated. this constant movement of air circulation purifies the air in a confined space.

HOW DO WE AFFECT CONVECTION OF AIR...
with more people in the room, their air density is less, we naturally emit warmth, this influence the temperature of the air around us, coming to contact with cool air, this forces the hot air upwards with the foreign pathogens included
