THE FAR ULTRAVIOLET REVOLUTION
CONTINUOUS DISINFECTION OF OCCUPIED SPACE IS NOW POSSIBLE
Type C ultraviolet light (UV-C) has long been known to destroy the DNA/RNA of bacteria, viruses and the coronavirus.
More recently, lamps have been developed that emit far-reaching ultraviolet light (222 nm wavelength) that is not dangerous to human or animal eyes and skin and which conserves its germicidal capacity.
In recent months, several universities (Columbia University in New-York, the universities of Hiroshima and Kobe) have confirmed the efficacity of far-reaching 222 nm wavelength ultraviolet light on Covid-19 as well as its harmlessness with regard to humans. This means that this light can be safely used in occupied spaces.
Current disinfection solutions used by the transport operators, such as spraying with chemical, germicidal products, are often only carried out once a day at the end of a service. Paradoxically, the risk of contamination is highest during transit, when users are present.
The "UVmobi inside" disinfection module provides automatic, continuous disinfection even when users are present. Above all, this keeps the risk of contamination during transit at a minimum both on surfaces and in the air. What’s more, uses are reassured, as they can easily identify forms of transportation that are "auto-disinfecting" using UVmobi’s inside modules, from those that are not.
