UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires
UV-C breaks down the DNA or RNA of microorganisms, including viruses and bacteria, thereby rendering them harmless. Signify's UV-C lamps emit a peak of radiation at 254 nm, which is near the peak wavelength for germ deactivation, and therefore ideal for disinfecting air, surfaces and objects.
The UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires can be used with people present. They continuously disinfect the air that flows through the upper areas of the dressing rooms thanks to natural convection, or air circulation. This also ensures that the disinfected air flows back to the lower part of the dressing rooms and mixes with the air. Philips UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires are equipped with shielding and optics to prevent exposure to UV-C radiation, so players can get changed without any concern.
"We’re experiencing a growing demand for disinfection methods from a wide array of organizations. UV-C lighting helps to disinfect air, surfaces, objects and spaces fast, efficient and effective,” said Hellen van der Plas, Market Leader of Signify’s operations in the Benelux. “We’re very proud that we’re now able to help PSV, a prominent top Tier club in the Netherlands based in our company’s home city, to provide their players with that additional layer of protection.”
The installation of the UV-C disinfecting lighting will take place in November. UV-C light should always be used by professionals in accordance with the safety requirements and instructions to avoid humans and animals from being exposed to it since it can damage their skin and eyes.
Signify has been at the forefront of UV technology for more than 35 years and has a proven track record of developing innovative UV-C disinfection solutions. Signify's UV-C lighting is designed, installed, and used according to the product-specific safety instructions, and manufactured in controlled industrial processes.
