Effective and safety-minded design
The Philips UV-C disinfection box contains a reflective stainless-steel interior designed to reach any surface of the object, whichever way they are facing. In laboratory tests, the Philips UV-C light sources with which the disinfection box is equipped, reduced SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) infectivity on surfaces by more than 99% to below detectable levels4.
As people and animals should not be exposed to UV-C light due to its harm to the eyes and skin, the built-in sensors automatically switch the device off when the cover is opened. This prevents any chance of UV-C light escaping and provides as an extra layer of protection for the user.
Functions and applications
With a width and height of 11 inches, the Philips UV-C disinfection box can be placed on any kitchen table or hallway table. The clear digital display offers an intuitive control with four functions. Besides the disinfect function, the storage function can continuously disinfect objects like toothbrushes or cutlery. Any moisture on personal items can be removed with the dry function. The disinfect+dry combination removes moisture and disinfects objects, like small toys and baby products.
The Philips UV-C disinfection box is available in the United States now, at selected retailers including Amazon, and via www.lighting.philips.com.
For more than 35 years, the company has been at the forefront of professional UV technology, building a track record of innovation in UV-C lighting. Signify is now leveraging this knowledge to address a growing need for the disinfection of surfaces, air and objects.
