UV222™ is a highly effective solution for reducing air and surface infections, and is entirely safe for use in busy shared spaces like hospitals, school classrooms, offices, restaurants and gyms.
UV222™ is a wall mounted device which emits 222nm Far UV-C light. A built-in Ushio Care222 filtered lamp ensures only safe wavelengths of light are shone into the air and onto surfaces.
Motion sensors and LIDAR allow UV222™ to measure distance to surfaces and vary UV-C dosage according to room occupancy, operating at all times within ACGIH Threshold Limit Values (TLV).
UV222™ is available in two different angle configurations – 60° and 100° – the 60° offers more focused Far UV-C light distribution, 100° creates a broader footprint and a larger coverage area.
UV222™ ensures human exposure to harmful wavelengths is eliminated through a patented optical band-pass filter. UV222™ is safer than Far UV-C units which use krypton-chloride excimer lamps.
UV222™ carries a 2 year/17,500 hour warranty and has zero ongoing maintenance costs. It can be either hard wired or supplied with a standard U.S plug fitting and consumes just 17 watts of electricity – 10 times less than many air purifiers – meaning low lifecycle costs.
Each UV222™ installation is designed from building floorpans to ensure that every open space and surface is best protected with lamps deployed in the most important parts of a room.
UV222™ lamps can be programmed to be active during busy periods or disabled when buildings are vacant, such as schools during the holidays, or restaurants and bars overnight.
The UV222™ IoT management portal allows users to access real time UV-C disinfection data, remotely adjust settings for each lamp and warns when lamps are nearing the end of their lifecycle.
UV222™ is capable of destroying over 90% of upper aerosolised SARS-CoV-2 in in just 26 seconds, surfaces are treated to the same reduction level in just a few minutes.
UV222™ has been proven in studies around the world to reduce surface and air infection risk in seconds and be safe for human exposure in doses up to 500mJ/cm2.
UV222™ is not just a solution for the pandemic. It will also eradicate bacteria such as MRSA and Salmonella, destroy mold and yeast, whilst incapacitating Influenza, Monkeypox and the Common Cold.
UV light is broadly classed into three types: UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. Since it has the highest energy, UV-C is the most dangerous type of ultraviolet light to humans.
UV-C, known as “germicidal” UV, neutralise pathogens such as viruses by attacking their DNA and preventing them from replicating, however 254nm UV-C can’t be used in occupied spaces.
Far-UVC has a shorter wavelength of 222 nm and higher energy, meaning it can neutralise viruses more effectively. It’s wavelength is absorbed by dead layers of cells and is harmless to humans.
Unlike traditional 254nm UVC light which can cause cataracts leading to blurry vision, 222nm Far UVC light does not penetrate the Iris, the outer layer of the eye
254 nm UVC light penetrates deep into the skin and can cause cancer. 222nm Far UVC light however does not penetrate the epidermis and is safe to be exposed to
