The disinfection system from UVentions GmbH can be used for hygiene in public spaces and rooms, such as elevators and waiting areas, where people are too close together.

The disinfection is carried out by UVC radiation – Photons destroy the DNA of bacteria, fungi and viruses. This inactivates viruses and kills bacteria and pathogenic fungi. The prompt destruction of infectious agents ensures a minimal level of microbial contamination.

Sensors can be installed in rooms. These detect whether there are people in the room and whether the room has been used.
