UV lighting solutions provide highly effective disinfection of air, surfaces, objects and water, without chemicals or toxic compounds, benefiting medical facilities in this time of increased sanitation, LEDVANCE offers a range of UV products designed to provide peace of mind in hospitals and care facilities Health like nursing homes, by disinfecting lighting solutions. The LEDVANCE T8 UV-C and linear housing UV-C sensor can be installed in wards, offices, waiting rooms, rest rooms and other hospital spaces to make staff and patients feel safer. These products take full advantage of LEDVANCE’s track record of innovation in UV-C lighting, and are backed by the company’s experts who can advise on projects and installations. Commenting on the scope, Nelo Neves, Managing Director of LEDVANCE UK, said, “The pandemic has put the importance of hygiene at the forefront of everyone’s minds. The pressure on key workers on the ‘front lines’ of the war against COVID is already enormous. Simple and highly effective sterilization solutions, such as UV-C lighting fixtures, can really lighten the burden, ensuring that entire hospital spaces and equipment are disinfected within minutes.LEDVANCE is in a prime position to support this.The LEDVANCE plant in Smolensk, Russia has been mass-producing UV-C lamps since 2012 and we have over 50 Patented in the field of low pressure vacuum technology. For easy installation in a wide range of spaces, the LEDVANCE T8 UV-C bulbs are available in three lengths: 440 mm (15 W / 25 W), 900 mm (30 W / 55 W) and 1200 mm (36 W / 75 W). It is CCG and ECG compliant and can be mounted on a standard G13 base. T8 bulbs last up to 20 percent longer than similar competitor products (10,800 hours / L70B50) and comply with the most stringent quality and safety standards (including ISO 9001/14001 and CB certification). Without proper safety measures, UV rays can be dangerous to humans, and require the installation of detection sensors to ensure protection from exposure. The LEDVANCE IR Sensor Safety Kit provides a 30-second delay on start-up and turns off the lamp as soon as people are detected. The linear housing UV-C sensor comes with a built-in long lasting ECG (Diming Regulating Electronic Controller), and is compatible with the LEDVANCE T8 UV-C. Detection range up to 150 square meters (depending on installation height). Anti-UV coating covers the lamp holder, screws and plastic parts. The linear housing UV-C sensor is available in two lengths: 440 mm (18 W) and 900 mm (33 W). About UV-light Ultraviolet rays, UV rays for short, are divided into four bands according to their wavelength. Light with a wavelength between 100 and 280 nanometers is classified as UV-C light. Since it does not occur naturally on Earth, UV-C light is able to kill bacteria, viruses, and fungal spores by damaging their DNA. Compared to other disinfection methods, UV-C light has a number of advantages. For example, it does not require chemicals or toxic compounds, and pathogens are not able to form resistance to their radiation. Although pathogens become harmless within seconds, the short treatment period does not alter the properties of the product or leave residue and discoloration on surfaces. UV-C formulations should be supervised by professionals. UV-C sources are considered hazardous (risk class RG3 according to NF EN 62471). The UV rays they emit expose the skin to risks (burns) but also to the cornea and retina. UV-C does not have immediate effects. As a result, the user may unknowingly be exposed to radiation for an extended period of time. Adverse effects usually appear within 24 hours of exposure. The intensity is determined by the intensity of the irradiation, the duration of exposure, and the cumulative exposure. Therefore, the installation and use of UV-C products should be reserved for professionals who have received specific training in the dangers of UV-C radiation as well as on the safety measures required by law in order to adequately protect humans, animals, plants and trees. environment from harmful effects. During installation, sufficient shields and guarantees must be in place. These include sensors and timers to detect presence.
