For decades the use of UVC light as a sanitizer has proved to be one of the best tools available to combat germs, bacteria and viruses. Hospital use complex disinfecting systems involving UVC lights to disinfect patients and operating rooms. Recently the same technology has been made available for use at home and our HME UVC ZAPPER offers a powerful disinfectant light encased in a stylish anodized cabinet that fits nicely with any decor.
With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, many types of UV lights are been made available to consumers but most of them are ineffective as the type of lamps used are not the right ones.
Our lamps use one of the most efficient wavelengths (254nm) for an UVC light to be effective as a disinfecting solution. Our lamps also produce Ozone which is believed to aid in neutralizing some air pollutants and helps in neutralizing odors.
Why spent money on ineffective solutions ? Or spend hundreds and even thousands in other alternatives that use the same kind of lamps and provide the same benefits? We have combined a effective UVc lamp with a quality housing that can be sold at a very reasonable price.
UVC technology has been proved capable to deactivate most viruses including SARS-CoV-2. The National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) at Boston University conducted a study where they achieved a 99% deactivation of the virus causing COVID-19 in about 6 seconds needing a dosage of 5mJ/cm2 and they reached a deactivation of 99.9999 (or 6 logs) in 25 seconds needing a dosage of 22mJ/cm2. According to this article the lamps used in those tests were 35W. Our lamps are 36W, which implies they can achieve the dosages needed to deactivate the virus in a similar amount of time.
At difference with most UVC products out there, all our lamps come with a report (produced by a certified UV Spectroradiometer System that is NIST Traceable and have ISO17025 accredited calibrations) showing the exact amount of irradiance and the wavelengths the lamps produce to help you determine the length of time you need to keep them on to achieve the dosage required to deactivate different viruses and bacterias.
These lamps are designed to be used in spaces with no people, pets or plants. Exposure to UVC light can cause severe damage to unprotected skin and eyes. Make sure to use it when people and pets are not around and ventilate the area for about 15/30 minutes after using the lamp and before using the space again.
Our lamps come with an exclusive 2 Years Warranty. If the UVC lamp fails within the first two years after purchase we will replace it for you. No other UVC lamp in the market offer this kind of warranty.
