Technology that Solves the Challenge of Disinfecting Police Vehicles
Portable SteriFlight UVC Light + Ozone Lamp
Law Enforcement among other first responders continue to face the challenge of keeping their police cruisers clean. Steriflight is a portable UVC Light + Ozone Lamp that helps reduce and eliminate the risk of exposure to bacteria, viruses, pollen, and molds.
The Steriflight UVC + Ozone lamp is the most effective solution to sanitize a vehicle – AND law enforcement agencies are taking advantage of the safety the portable unit provides for their fleet. The effort to protect partners, families, and friends after an Officer’s shift can be easily done with the portable Steriflight. Per COVID-19 Guidelines for Law Enforcement it is recommended to – “Clean or decontaminate work equipment, while avoiding the spread of particles/dust.” (Interpol Recommendation: COVID-19 Pandemic, pg. 8)
To eliminate the use of PPE the portable UVC + Ozone lamp can easily be set in the police cruiser and activated to efficiently sterilize any vehicle or room up to 1K sq/ft. killing bacteria, viruses, pollen, and molds.
How does it work?
UV disinfection or ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) works by breaking down certain chemical bonds and scrambling the structure of DNA, RNA and proteins, causing a microorganism to be unable to multiply. When a microorganism is unable to multiply, it is considered dead since it cannot reproduce within a host and is no longer infectious.
SteriFlight Uses UVC
Ultraviolet (UV) means “beyond violet” and refers to a range of electromagnetic waves with a shorter wavelength (higher frequency and energy) than visible violet light. UV is divided into three types with reducing wavelengths and increasing energy. They are UVA, UVB, and UVC. For UV sterilization, only UVC (100-280nm) has high enough energy to effectively kill microorganisms.
SteriFlight Is Effective
UV sterilization is effective for viruses and bacteria, foodborne pathogens, natural microbiota, molds, and yeasts.
The application of UVGI to disinfection has been an accepted practice since the mid-20th century. It has been used primarily in medical sanitation and sterile work facilities.
