UV Sterilisation Systems

UV Sterilisation Systems are highly effective in destroying the pathogens that cause healthcare-associated disease, other microorganisms and mould. The process has many applications, from sterilising hospital bathrooms and surgical instruments, killing bacteria on food and airborne viruses such as measles, TB, and COVID 19.

Contaminated Air & Particles

UV systems are effective against thousands of airborne contaminants inside buildings such as viruses, allergens, bacteria, mould, fungi and volatile organic compounds (VOC).

Lingering Odours

Whether these odours come from restaurants, factories, warehouses, delivery trucks or garbage, UV sterilisations systems help reduce them.

Energy Loss

The accumulation of mould and biofilm on the evaporator coils affects the heat/ cold transfer efficiency of air handling units, which increases their energy consumption.

How does UV work?

UV works by breaking down the unwanted germs’ chemical bonds and making an inhospitable environment for bacteria and microorganisms to grow. As a result, the organism is no longer able to multiply and is therefore no longer infectious.

Our UV sterilisation systems are fast-acting, and more importantly, chemical-free. As a result, UV provides a safe, clean solution for all areas needing maximum sterilisation with no chemicals left behind.

In addition, UV sterilisation improves air quality and reduces the threat of airborne infections.

Where is UV sterilisation effective?

UV systems can offer more than just sterilisation. We install systems to manage sterilisation, odour control, or both, which allows the flexibility to engineer a solution to suit your needs.

UV systems have also been proven to extend the life of fresh produce and are effective in coil cleaning systems to reduce energy consumption and extend the life of the coil.

Healthcare, Food production, Odour management – no matter the application, we have a UV system to fit your requirements.

UV sterilisation is effective in spaces that are breeding grounds for healthcare-associated disease. We’ve helped countless clients install UV sterilisation systems, such as hospitals, dental offices, medical practices, commercial buildings, research laboratories and shopping centres.

Bathrooms are mainly well known for being susceptible to bacteria, viruses and pathogens, so UV works perfectly in these spaces.

Best of all, we offer a range of UV solutions depending on your needs. For example, our completely automated Sanuvox Surface Sterilisation kills 99.99% of pathogens. This utterly automatic process has a fast disinfection cycle at under 5 minutes, and sensors ensure it only works when nobody is in the room.
