Far UVC Products and UVC Products
UVC light air purification; revolutionising the way we sanitise and disinfect spaces.
Discovered by Downes and Blunt in 1877, UV-C light in the form of germicidal lamps has been used since the late 1800s to kill the types of micro-organisms that typically cause indoor air quality (IAQ) problems – bacteria, mould, yeast and viruses. UV-C was used to disinfect the municipal water supply of Marseille, France, in 1908. The technology is more widespread than you think.
Among many other applications, it is used to sanitise rooms in hospitals, clean buses and aircrafts including Boeing aircraft, treat wastewater, sterilise drinking water, cleanse school rooms, restaurants, hotels etc., in fact, many places we are unaware of. However, UVC disinfection technology up till now has not been safe to use in human-occupied spaces as exposure to UVC light can be harmful, so its uses have been somewhat limited.
Now, due to incredible advancements in UVC technology, air disinfection devices have been created that are safe to use in occupied spaces to protect people from current and future airborne disease outbreaks.
Thanks to its disinfecting properties UV-C radiation is a real all-rounder. Demand has exploded across all sectors worldwide since the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic. With its unique features, it has suddenly propelled the technology into the global spotlight.
Far UVC and UVC Benefits
UVC light eliminates 99% of airborne pathogens and can be far more effective than other disinfection methods. UVC light kills all common airborne viruses and diseases including but not limited to:
- Bordetella pertussis – Whooping Cough
- Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
- Kennel Cough
- Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)
- Neisseria meningitidis
- Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS1-2)
- Streptococcus pneumonia
Utilising UVC light significantly reduces human error and improves peace of mind by knowing the air you are breathing is free of 99% of airborne pathogens.
With standard forms of disinfection as with chemicals, human error can greatly impact the effectiveness
UVC light disinfection is non-toxic and safe to use.
Most disinfection products contain harsh chemicals that can often be harmful to our health and the environment. Alternatively, UVC disinfection is a physical process, not a chemical one and leaves NO residue
Many traditional disinfection methods can result in antibiotic-resistant bacteria due to the use of traditional antimicrobial agents. Pathogens are unable to form resistance to UV-C. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria present a significant problem for future treatments of disease.
Be sure to find the perfect UVC disinfection device for your requirement. We have an extensive range of products specifically designed for a variety of uses.
From an array of combined lighting/UVC disinfection devices to a wearable UV air purification device – we’ve got something for everyone.
It might surprise you to know that UVC disinfection is an affordable sanitisation method. There is a common misconception that the technology is out-of-reach for most people and businesses, when in reality, this is not the case.
A one-time investment in UVC disinfection will save you time and money for years as the unique properties of our technology mean you will have no maintenance costs over the life of the product. There will be reduced labour time and costs compared to other sanitisation methods such as expensive filters

UVC light has been proven and used for over a century and its effectiveness in destroying airborne pathogens is well-known.
When pathogens are exposed to UVC light, their DNA and RNA start to become damaged and inactivated. When the damage becomes too extensive, DNA replication stops which causes the cell to die, effectively destroying the pathogen and its ability to reproduce.
