Clean You Can See
Our UVC lights disinfect... and we can prove it.
We're experts in lights, but you don't have to take our word for it.
Every UVC Light Conveyor ships with 3rd party UVC Dosimeters so you can see for yourself!
Don't fall for inadequate UVC lights that are unfocused with too much distance between the light and the surface, and too little time of exposure to be effective. In order to be effective in disinfecting surfaces two factors must be optimized; the distance from the surface, and the intensity - or the time a surface is exposed to adequate UVC lighting. Many of the UVC wands and portals out there today use lights that scatter everywhere without the proper intensity of energy, violating one of the basic tenants of UVC light disinfecting.
Clean the UVC Way
CoronaVirus Lifespan on Surfaces
COVID-19 can live on surfaces up to 2-3 days on stainless steel, 4 days on glass, and 7 days for surgical masks.
Are your workplace surfaces clean enough for your staff & customers?

"Studies have shown that when SARS — another coronavirus — was exposed to UVC for 15 minutes, the virus was "completely inactivated." The rays seem to penetrate the cells of pathogens, damaging the DNA or RNA that contain their genetic code, Jim Malley, PhD, an environmental engineer at the University of New Hampshire, told the Los Angeles Times.

"Shared pens and styluses are a potential source for transmission of health care−associated pathogens and respiratory viruses in health care facilities. A novel ultraviolet light-emitting diode device was effective in reducing bacteria and viruses inoculated on pens and in reducing methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus transferred to pens by colonized patients. The device could be useful in reducing the risk of transmission of pathogens by shared writing utensils."

"As for the UV wands meant to be used on desks, keyboards, and other surfaces: Nardell says the light they emit generally isn't strong enough to have an impact."
Ed Nardell is a professor of environmental health and infectious diseases at Harvard Medical School and sits on the safety committee for the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES)

UV Light Disinfecting Without Harmful Chemicals
Micro-organisms that includes bacteria and viruses are simple lifeforms that reproduce through subdivision of cells. Because of their simplistic nature, exposure to UVC light in the 254-280nm range the light passes through the cell walls disrupting or severing their DNA structure to a level that they can no longer reproduce or infect (inactivate the organism).
Interestingly enough, the ideal wavelength for inactivating viruses lies between 260 to 265nm and here is where optics becomes important, absorption by material or medium such as water pushes that requirement often to 275 to 280nm. Our LED’s operate in that most effective range with proper lensing and material selection at 270-285nm.
While a lot has been written recently in regards to a shorter wavelength as being safe for human at 220nm or less, the dosage required and resulting length of time required for it to be effective is an order of magnitude of 1,000x that of 275nm. Even high pressure mercury systems that operate at the 405nm range and target specific chemical compounds have the same drawback.
We've all changed our habits in order to protect ourselves, our family, our employees, and our customers from contracting the virus from daily activities. But some industries, essential and non-essential alike, need to step up their game in order to gain back the trust of both their employees and customers.
Industries such as education, office, customer facing retail, manufacturing, hospitality, delivery personal, warehouse workers, transportation, beauty, and agriculture companies now have to re-evaluate their processes and procedures in order to resume face to face services.
