Philips UV-C: the air that cares

Improve indoor air quality with Philips UV-C technology

It’s widely accepted that the main way many viruses and bacteria spread is through the air. Clean air—made possible by an effective ventilation strategy—is vital to protect the wellness of people in shared spaces, and to reduce disruptions that result from illness. Build confidence in the indoor air quality of your workplace, school, healthcare facility or any indoor space with Philips UV-C technology.

Combining UV-C disinfection lighting with basic ventilation provides an additional layer of protection from airborne viruses and bacteria, by inactivating 99.99%* of harmful pathogens present in the air. It’s the most effective way to clean the air of viruses and bacteria, and highly energy-efficient too. 

Benefits of UV-C disinfection

How does UV-C disinfection work?

Our upper air system is installed in the space you want to disinfect. Designed with safety in mind, it quietly and discreetly emits UV light that disinfects the air. Using Philips UV-C in conjunction with basic ventilation will give you clean, clear air that adds a layer of protection for employees, students, customers, patients, or guests.
