The future of Far UVC lighting

Closer than you think

What is Far UVC (and how does it change the game)?

You’ve probably heard something about the ability of UV light to kill germs in the air and on surfaces. Far UVC is the technology behind the latest generation germicidal UV light bulbs. Emitting light that is lower down on the UV spectrum, Far UVC lights are safer than existing 254nm ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) solutions because they are far less likely to damage human skin and eye tissue, yet are just as effective in inactivating viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.

“This technology has the potential to democratize Far UVC access by bringing the cost of production down while also achieving significant safety gains compared to existing methodologies.”
