Safe & Effective Disinfection
For over a century, scientists have known that certain frequencies of light have a devastating effect on microbial life. We now know that exposure to ultraviolet light in the range of 254 NM (UV-C band) disrupts the DNA of micro-organisms thus preventing them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.
UV Light – A Well Established Disinfection Technology
UV light disinfection is now widely used in hospitals and laboratories to sanitize instruments and work surfaces and to prevent the spread of potentially lethal airborne infectious diseases. The technology is used by the food industry to sterilize food before packaging and water treatment systems large and small now incorporate UV light as a chemical-free means of purification.
Kill Germs With Light
Because the frequency of UV-C light is filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere microorganisms have no defense against it. It works by scrambling their DNA which prevents them from reproducing.
Indoor Air Quality
According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk. UV-C improves indoor air quality by sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air as it cycles through the central air system.
What is UV-C Light?
Ultraviolet (UV) light is a range of light frequencies that are mostly invisible to the human eye. The UV-C band is most effective at killing germs because its short wavelength is able to penetrate the cell walls of microorganisms and scramble their DNA. Also, UV-C is filtered out by the earth’s atmosphere, so microbes have no defense against it.
Save on HVAC Maintenance, Energy, & Equipment Life
Every building can benefit from ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI). Installing a Fresh-Aire UV UVGI system will result in significant energy and maintenance savings. These systems also improve indoor air quality for building occupants by reducing airborne biological contaminants and toxic VOCs. We offer practical solutions for all industrial, medical, retail, corporate, and hospitality applications.
