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

WARNINGS AND SAFETY:

DANGER: Each TECHNILAMP* Luminaire's is fitted with PHILIP UV-C lights. Direct exposure to UV-C can be dangerous and result in a sunburn-like reaction to the skin and serious damage to the cornea. As UV-C is invisible to the eye, the UV-C luminaire must be used and installed in strict accordance with the requirements set forth in the user manual and/or the mounting instructions. TECHNILAMP* UV-C Luminaries must only be sold and installed by nominated Electrical and Air Conditioner Installers, that have been trained according to our stringent safety and legal requirements.

KEY GUIDELINES

TECHNILAMP* Luminaires are not certified or approved as a medical device, locally or globally, and should not be used as such. They should never be used in applications or activities that may cause and or lead to death, personal injury, and or damage to the environment.

UV-C lighting presents a minimal risk when used in the correct way. Direct exposure to UV-C is dangerous. The lighting must always be installed with adequate shields and safeguards (such as presence detection sensors or timers) to avoid light damage and severe injuries to the eyes and skin. TECHNILAMP* luminaires are not provided with the above-mentioned safeguards and are only intended to be used as components of air purification system that contain any safeguards indicated, but not limited to, those specified in mounting instructions and user manuals.

DISCLAIMER:

The UV-C TECHNILAMP* Luminaire's that are fitted with PHILIPS UV-C lights, is effective in the deactivation of certain mould, bacteria, viruses or any foreign pathogens that is explained and referenced by clinical research and data referenced (above (2). TECHNILAMP*, GUVTEC* and PHILIPS do not promise or warrant that the use of the UV-C Luminaire's will protect any user from or prevent infection and/or contamination with any mould, bacteria, viruses, illness or disease. The UV-C TECHNILAMP* Luminaire's (including PHILIPS lights) are not approved and/or certified as a medical device by the FDA and/or any other regulatory body. As such, the TECHNILAMP* Luminaire's (PHILIPS lights) are not intended for and must not be used to disinfect medical devices and/or for medical purposes. In addition to and without limitation of any exclusions or limitations of liability of TECHNILAMP*, GUVTEC* and PHILIPS lights, as set forth in any agreement for the sale, distribution or otherwise making available of the UV-C TECHNILAMP* Luminaire's (PHILIPS lights) shall have no responsibility or liability whatsoever for any claim or damage that may arise from or relate to any use of the UV-C upper air devices outside of their intended use or contrary to their installation and operation instructions, each as described in this document, the user manuals and/or the mounting instructions of UV-C TECHNILAMP Luminaires.

The trademark GUVTEC* 667556 is registered in accordance with the corresponding legal precepts in the name of QUAVEL INVESTMENTS LIMITED 577456.
