How does UV-C Light work?
HANDY BOX™ uses UV-C light to eliminate the Covid-19 virus from hands, masks & small objects with 99.9% efficiency in just 4 seconds.
The germicidal range of UV-C light deactivates bacteria, viruses, and other microbes by attacking their DNA.
UV-C light is able to penetrate the cells of microorganisms in the outer ‘dead’ layer of skin and disrupt the structure of their DNA molecules.
The microorganisms, in turn, lose their reproductive capability and are destroyed, rendering them inactive and no longer harmful.
A cell that can’t reproduce is considered dead since it is unable to multiply to infectious numbers within a host.
HANDY BOX™ is able to sanitise the air in rooms by drawing in contaminated air and expelling sanitised clean air.
Air Sanitising Space by volume*: 1 hour: 16m³, 2 hours: 32m³, 3 hours: 48m³, 4 hours: 64m³
*example room size 4m x 5m x 3m = 60m³
(For sanitising larger commercial spaces we are able to recommend a specialist supplier)
HANDY BOX™ meets the permissible safety requrements for exposure within 3600uW (3.6mw) for 4 seconds which is regulated by the EC Scientific Committees and ISO 15858 (International Organisation for Standardisation)
