Safeology™, the UVC disinfection expert, brings research, technology and manufacturing together to create clean spaces free of pathogens like viruses and bacteria. Located in Everett, Washington, our 125,000 square foot manufacturing facility is home to hundreds of employees who come to work every day united around a single mission: creating a cleaner, safer world.
How it began...
On January 21, 2020, the first person in the U.S. was diagnosed with COVID-19 in Everett, Washington – our hometown. Shortly thereafter a major outbreak occurred at a nearby nursing home and many succumbed to the virus. At this same time, my first child, America Piper, was born. Sitting in the hospital with my newborn daughter and my wife Jenae, nothing mattered more to me than keeping them safe.
As the number of COVID-19 cases continued to grow, like so many Americans, so too did our apprehension and alarm. Our family business rushed to implement safety guidelines and work-from-home policies, and wondered how we could make a difference in the battle against the coronavirus.
Our company has always been at the forefront of lighting and technology innovation, so when my brother Aaron suggested we revive our UV technology to fight the virus, my family and our employees were all in. With over 20 years’ experience in LED and lamp fixture technology, we had the engineering and lighting expertise, as well as U.S. manufacturing to produce products to fight the spread of COVID-19.
Technology that works...
UVC light has been proven to be an affordable, efficient and effective solution for reducing or eliminating unwanted surface and airborne pathogens. To understand how UVC disinfection works, it’s important to understand the science of UVC light.
Ultraviolet light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, falling between visible light and x-rays. It’s classified into three primary groups based on wavelength: Ultraviolet A (UVA), Ultraviolet B (UVB) and Ultraviolet C (UVC). UVC light has a wavelength range of 100 – 280 nanometers (nm) and is widely acknowledged as the most effective light to eradicate germs. Accordingly, it is sometimes referred to as Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI).
UVC irradiation is a physical process that disrupts and damages the nucleic acid (DNA and RNA) of harmful organisms such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi. The UVC light produces electromagnetic energy that causes a photo-chemical reaction, triggering the formation of specific thymine or cytosine dimers in DNA and uracil dimers in RNA. This alteration of the DNA and RNA strands leaves the organisms sterile, rendering them unable to function or reproduce. In scientific terms, a sterile organism is in essence a dead organism. Since they can’t reproduce, the organisms can’t spread, and the pathologic effect has been eliminated.
The Safeology™ Upper Room UVC Linear Wall Fixture
The NEW Safeology™ Upper Room UVC Wall Fixture was designed for ease of application, effectiveness, quiet operation and price point. We know one of the best ways to combat airborne transmission of viruses is to continually clean a room’s air supply. In fact, to ensure clean, safe air the CDC generally recommends 6 to 12 Air Changes per Hour (ACH), a standard method of cleaning the air. Safeology’s Upper Room UVC Linear Wall Fixture uses optimized UVC beam control to continuously clean air circulating through the Upper Room disinfection zone. Delivering an estimated equivalent of 6 ACH for a typical 3,600 cubic foot space (or 400 square foot room with a 9’ high ceiling), the Fixture is capable of eliminating up to 99.9% of airborne pathogens1 including the virus that causes COVID-19.
The Safeology™ Mobile UVC Tower
Providing for routine scheduled disinfection, as well as episodic disinfection-on-demand, the Safeology™ Mobile UVC Tower safely, quickly and efficiently disinfects and inactivates up to 99.9% of surface pathogens1 . Use it daily for routine disinfection of classrooms, hotel rooms, offices and other environments to prevent the spread of viruses. And, if needed, use it on-demand to disinfect spaces with suspected or known viral contamination. Thoughtful engineering and an ergonomic design make the Safeology Mobile UVC Tower easy to move from room to room helping you ensure your entire environment is clean and worry-free.
The Safeology™ Mobile UVC Air Purifier
The Safeology™ Mobile UVC Air Purifier is designed for round-the-clock pathogen protection. Simply position it the room, turn it on, and let Safeology’s UVC technology clean and disinfect the air you breathe. The Safeology Mobile Air Purifier’s UVC lights inactivate 99.9% of airborne pathogens1 including the virus that causes COVID-19. And the built-in activated carbon filter and HEPA filter remove at least 99.97% of other airborne irritants such as dust, mold, bacteria and pollen that can lead to or exacerbate other health concerns like asthma, influenza, and the common cold. Take a deep breath and rest easy knowing you have 24/7 protection with the Safeology Mobile UVC Air Purifier.
