As UV-C is invisible to the eye, our UV-C products are either provided with physically integrated equipment or time safeguards (such as presence or motion detection sensors or timers) or are to be installed together with the adequate containment safeguards to ensure that our UV-C products can be operated in a safe way. UV-C disinfection luminaires that we provide without physically integrated equipment or time safeguards are meant to be used only as components in disinfection systems that contain the adequate safety safeguards such as, but not limited to, those indicated in the mounting instructions and/or user manuals of such luminaires.
Direct exposure to UV-C is dangerous. Philips UV-C disinfection luminaires must only be sold either directly by Signify or re-sold through qualified partners, and always installed by qualified professionals according to our stringent safety and legal requirements. Our UV-C products are not meant to be used in applications or activities which may cause and/or lead to death, personal injury and/or damage to the environment. Plants and/or materials that are exposed to higher dosages of UV-C may become damaged and/or discolored.
