UV sterilisation is extremely effective in destroying the pathogens that cause nosocomial disease and is also effective against other microorganisms such as mould. The process has plenty of applications, from sterilising hospital bathrooms and surgical instruments through to killing bacteria on food and airborne viruses such as measles, TB, and COVID 19.
UV works by breaking down the chemical bonds, and also scrambling the DNA, RNA and proteins of microorganisms. When this happens, 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. With no chemicals left behind, UV provides a safe, clean solution for all areas needing maximum sterilisation.
In addition, UV sterilisation improves air quality and reduces the threat of airborne infections.
Where does it work?
UV sterilisation is used in numerous fields, most commonly in spaces that are breeding grounds for nosocomial 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 particularly 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 completely automatic process has a fast disinfection cycle at under 5 minutes, and sensors ensure it only works when nobody is in the room.
We also offer mobile air sterilisation units, designed specifically for healthcare and hospital facilities, residential areas, schools, food and beverage manufacturing plants, pharmaceutical factories, and other public places.

How effective is UV sterilisation?
UV sterilisation is extremely effective, boasting a 99.99% success rate against the pathogens that cause nosocomial disease. It’s known to be effective in killing bacteria, and various other microorganisms such as mould and yeasts.
One of the reasons so many hospitals and healthcare facilities use UV is because it works quickly. Microorganisms are considered dead as soon as they’re unable to reproduce. This is because they can’t multiply within a host, hence becoming non-infectious.
So, whether you need to keep the air in your facility free of airborne pathogens, or you need to ensure surfaces remain disease-free, UV is an extremely effective method.
