Protect your home against viruses and bacteria with UV-C lighting


     September 17th, 2021


     Disinfect your home from germs in an effective and easy way


    During these uncertain times, with COVID-19 still present in our lives, hygiene is now more important than ever. A year ago, experts told MP’s that the virus would be with us for ‘decades to come’, and despite the success of the vaccine and its rollout programme, it is imperative that we learn to live as safely as we can with the virus, using appropriate technology in order to do so.


    Various methods of destroying bacteria and viruses have been trailed, but few are as effective as the use of UV-C light. Here are Signify, we are proud to offer Philips UV-C disinfection products to consumers as they effectively deactivate viruses and bacteria in a matter of minutes. All of our Philip’s UV-C consumer products contain built-in voice guidance, sensors and timers, providing an added layer of protection for you and your family.


    UV-C light is a form of radiation that can be used to destroy bacteria, viruses and spores. It works by destroying the DNA and RNA of the pathogen, rendering them harmless, and to date, all bacteria and viruses tested have been successfully destroyed by UV-C disinfection. A UV-C solution produced by lighting experts Signify is proving to be 99.99% effective against SARS-COV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, after just 10 minutes of exposure to the air of the room. Here at Signify, we are extremely proud to have over 35 years’ experience in Philip’s UV-C disinfection technology and strong application expertise.


    We are proud to announce the UV-C products, that we at Signify have recently launched aiming to keep you and your family safe during these unprecedented times. Our recently launched UV-C products include a lamp, box, and mini box, which are all very easily portable, offering a hassle-free experience.

    Our Philips UV-C disinfection lamp can effectively deactivate viruses, bacteria, moulds and spores in a matter of minutes. With our Philips UV-C lamp you can protect your home and workplace, protecting your family and visitors.
