Quarantine Hotel Rooms
Human safe, 222nm wavelength (Far UV-C) light is independently certified as being more than 99.9% effective at inactivating SARS-CoV-2 viruses, meaning its DNA is destroyed to the extent that the virus cannot perform normal cellular functions including respiration and reproduction. This results in the virus being non-infectious and harmless.
As such our devices are ideal for use in Covid quarantine hotels to simultaneously kill airborne and surface bound Coronavirus.
Since our devices operate when someone enters the unit's coverage zone, the virus is killed from the moment it's expelled. This ensures the viral load within the room is maintained to a near undetectable level. As such escape via airflow pathways is eliminated.
Elimination at the point of production is by-far the safest strategy. Particularly since there's not reliance on ideal airflow as is the case for HEPA based air cleaners.
Additionally, Far UV-C disinfects surfaces and is the best way to sanitise creviced surfaces, soft furnishings and carpets.
HEPA filters do not clean surfaces and disposal of HEPA cartridges is expensive and represents another possible virus transmission point, since Coronavirus can survive on the filtration surface for more than two weeks.
With Far UV-C sanitisers, whatever is within the field of the light is sanitised, including everything contained within the air. The time taken to achieve 99.9% inactivation is a function of pathogen type, lamp output power and the distance between the pathogen and the lamp.
Typically for this application, SARS-CoV-2 at two metres away from a 150 Watt lamp is killed in about 7 minutes and Influenza virus in about 13 minutes.
Far UV-C devices have no moving parts (no fan required) and therefore makes no noise.
Installation is simply.
- Screw to the wall (or ceiling)
- Plug into a standard mains power socket
- Turn on and leave on
Built-in energy saving
Standard models included a motion sensor that turns the unit to standby when no one is present for longer than 15 minutes. When someone enters the space, it then restarts the sanitation lamp.
