Spectral Blue Safety
What is Spectral Blue?
Spectral Blue is the world’s most advanced system for indoor surface disinfection.
It helps to prevent infections by automatically and continuously eliminating pathogens from frequently touched surfaces, thus making the area safer.
The unique technology is based on natural blue light, which is safe and has none of the risks associated with legacy disinfection methods such as ultraviolet light and chemicals.
The Spectral Blue lighting operates automatically, switching on when the pod is vacated and off, back to white light when the pod is occupied. When required the blue light can be switch off at the end of the day, or left on to create the most incredible affect at night.
What is blue light?
In the patent-pending Spectral Blue system, blue light means natural, visible light that contains only selected antimicrobial wavelengths. The wavelengths used range from 405 nm to 470 nm.
Unlike ultraviolet light, visible blue light is harmless to people and materials. That is why Spectral Blue is 100% safe to use even when people are present.
Is blue light dangerous?
No it’s not. Spectral Blue disinfection operates on the visible light spectrum. The blue light does not contain dangerous ultraviolet radiation.
Unlike ultraviolet light (UVA, UVB, UVC) natural blue light is safe for human and animal cells and it does not cause eye damage. Blue light is not ionising and does not generate ozone or degrade indoor materials.
However, as with all bright LED lights, you mustn’t look directly at them from a short distance. The same is true for all bright light sources.
Is Spectral Blue effective on SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus?
Yes it is. The Spectral Blue disinfection system and photocatalytic coating is proven effective on SARS-CoV-2 – along with all bacteria, yeast, mould, other viruses, VOCs and odours.
The manufacturer of the light has many years of experience in the industry, providing field-proven and scientifically proven disinfection technology into professional settings such as laboratories and hospital operating rooms.
The Spectral Blue system isn’t one that has been developed quickly to profit from the COVID-19 pandemic.
