UV-C lighting is a technology whose time has surely come. It represents a highly effective means of disinfection and greatly limits the use of chemicals. However, it must be used with care and systems installed, managed and disposed of professionally.
Exposure to UV-C radiation can quickly burn the skin and cause eye damage. It’s vital that all safety instructions are followed, and shielding is in place and people absent when necessary, depending on the type of system being used.
We foresee wide-ranging applications for UV-C that extend well beyond the disinfection of hospitals. But for now, it’s gratifying to know that the lighting technology we’re providing is on the front line helping to eliminate the spread of the virus.
