Main Cleanliness When At Home Only, This Lamp Is Claimed To Destroy Viruses and Fungi
, Jakarta - The cleanliness of objects and surfaces at home can have a big impact on people's health and welfare. Understandably, everyone is at risk of contracting or spreading viruses and germs when they touch things. An effective and proven way to neutralize viruses and bacteria is through UV-C irradiation. In the middle of this year, Signify introduced the UV-C portfolio. A professional UV-C innovation, Signify's disinfection table lamp is expected to help consumers effectively disinfect their homes from viruses and bacteria.
Signify Indonesia Country Leader Rami Hajjar said as the world was adjusting to the challenges and 'adapting to new habits' due to COVID-19, his team was trying to meet the increasing need for disinfection by introducing Signify's first consumer UV-C product. "This new table lamp can make a difference by helping to deactivate viruses (including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19) and bacteria, to help keep our homes clean of harmful micro-organisms," said Rami Hajjar in a statement to end of September 2020.

The UV-C disinfection table lamp is easy to use, with a compact control panel and built-in voice guidance. Given that exposure to UV-C rays can be harmful to the eyes and skin, the built-in voice guidance not only asks users to leave the room before the lights turn on, Signify also adds extra protection to the table lamps with integrated sensors that detect human movement, and instantly turn off the light if motion is detected.
Within minutes, the Philips UV-C disinfection table lamp is claimed to be able to knock out viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores that can pose invisible dangers in the home. The time to disinfect the room in the house depends on the size of the room and the types of surfaces or objects in the room. For example, a medium-sized living room needs about 45 minutes of exposure to light to clean, a bedroom takes 30 minutes and a regular bathroom 15 minutes. To ensure the room is effectively disinfected, the Philips UV-C disinfection table lamp uses a dosage that exceeds the required dose to inactivate most of the germs that have been tested against exposure to UV-C light.
All bacteria and viruses tested to date respond to UV-C irradiation. In laboratory testing, Signify's UV-C lamps deactivated 99 percent of the SARS-CoV-2 virus with an exposure time of 6 seconds on surfaces.
