Safelight UV Manufacturing
Safelight UV™ is on the cutting edge to stop COVID – 19 (Coronavirus), H1N1 influenza, SARS and other superbugs from interruption in our lives with complete human safety. Until now UV light has been used in hospitals and medical facilities to kill (inactivate) superbugs when the areas were free of humans, since almost all UV wavelengths are harmful to the human skin and Cornea (eye). Traditional UV technology has been implemented and installed for almost 80 years with absolute success, and today we can now coexist with FAR UVC wavelength at 222nm in our daily lives. Safelight UV’s downlight the Wave222™ is made in the USA at our facility and is a researched and proven technology.
Reactive or Proactive to Superbugs?
Scientific Solution – 24/7/365
In the last 5 years scientists have discovered a UVC wavelength at 222nm that can kill (inactivate) these Superbugs (harmful Viruses & bacteria) by preventing them and/or stopping them in their tracks. Safelight UV fixture technology has been developed with input of top scientists around the world. David Brenner PhD, the Higgins Professor of Radiation Biophysics Professor of Environmental Health Services and Director of the Center for Radiological Research Columbia University has done the most work to date showing the success of FAR UVC 222nm wavelength to safely destroy (inactivate) these deadly viruses and bacteria. The use of The Wave222™and The Wave222 Gateway™is continuous 24/7/365 days a year, compared to chemicals that only inactivate the viruses and bacteria until someone effected comes into the room again. Viruses and other harmful germs continuously are entered into environments by visitors, guests, employees, family members, strangers throughout the day without notice, and need to be combated at that point. To clean the area is good but doing that 8 hours, a week or month later will be totally ineffective and far too late.
Disinfectant Chemical Solution
Chemicals work too, however the virus& bacteria is only killed at that moment of chemical contact and then when someone carrying or infected walks into the room and touches something, sneezes, speaks, breathes or coughs the virus is back in the room.
The Wave222™and The Wave222 Gateway™destroys the viruses on the body or clothing before once they enter the lobby, arena or office and if they emit the virus from their body it is inactivate by the Wave222 downlight or The Wave222 Gateway before it spreads again throughout the area.

New York: Continuous low doses of far ultraviolet C (far-UVC) light can kill airborne flu viruses without harming human tissues and may help fight the spread of seasonal influenza, a study has found.
The findings suggest that use of overhead far-UVC light in hospitals, schools, airports and other public spaces could provide a powerful check on seasonal influenza epidemics, as well as influenza pandemics.
Scientists have known for decades that broad-spectrum UVC light, which has a wavelength of between 200 to 400 nanometres, or nm), is highly effective at killing bacteria and viruses by destroying the molecular bonds that hold their DNA together.
"Far-UVC light has a very limited range and cannot penetrate through the outer dead-cell layer of human skin or the tear layer in the eye, so it's not a human health hazard," said David J Brenner from the Columbia University Medical Centre in the US.
"But because viruses and bacteria are much smaller than human cells, far-UVC light can reach their DNA and kill them," Brenner said.
Influenza virus spreads from person to person mainly through fine liquid droplets, or aerosols, that become airborne when people with flu cough, sneeze, or talk. The new study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, was designed to test if far-UVC light could efficiently kill aerosolized influenza virus in the air, in a setting similar to a public space.
In the research, aerosolized H1N1 virus - a common strain of flu virus - was released into a test chamber and exposed to very low doses of 222 nm far-UVC light. A control group of aerosolized virus was not exposed to the UVC light. The far-UVC light efficiently inactivated the flu viruses, with about the same efficiency as conventional germicidal UV light.
"If our results are confirmed in other settings, it follows that the use of overhead low-level far-UVC light in public locations would be a safe and efficient method for limiting the transmission and spread of airborne-mediated microbial diseases, such as influenza and tuberculosis," said Brenner.
"And unlike flu vaccines, far-UVC is likely to be effective against all airborne microbes, even newly emerging strains," he said.
Reduction in Viruses = More ProductivityReduction in viruses and superbug illnesses will lead to healthier lives, more days of work annually, and a mentally more healthy work environment. Schools will have less sick children where germs run rampant allowing for parents to stay at work more. This fixture provides a return on investment whether it be drawing top candidates to work at your facility, less sick leave, less insurance premiums, and most of all the priceless human life.
