Disinfection Station

Germicidal ultraviolet lighting is a great way to perform effective disinfection without chemicals. Build a disinfection station for your space from HomElectrical’s selection of carts, lamps, and water & dust covers.

What is a disinfection cart?

A disinfection cart is an appliance equipped with germicidal ultraviolet lamps. UVC lamps are commonly called quartz lamps because they are made from a clear quartz glass tube. They shine a disinfecting light that quickly and effectively rids an area of harmful microorganisms. Disinfection carts are used in medical facilities, laboratories, factories, and other areas where a quick, efficient, and nonchemical disinfection process is desired.

What is UV-C?

UV-C refers to a type of ultraviolet light. Between UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C, UV-C rays have the shortest wavelength, making them the most harmful to bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. The UV-C rays from the sun are absorbed by the ozone layer but are still created artificially for applications like tanning beds, medical equipment, food processing, and disinfection carts.

What are the benefits of germicidal ultraviolet light?

UV-C technology provides a way to disinfect and sanitize without the use of chemicals, which can be toxic and add more waste than other cleaning methods. UV-C light effectively sanitizes, kills, and prevents the spread of mold, mildew, viruses, and other harmful bacteria. Investing in a germicidal ultraviolet disinfection system lowers the health risks posed by chemicals and lowers cleaning expenses.

Are UV-C lights dangerous?

Just like other ultraviolet light rays, UV-C light can damage human skin and eye cells if exposed to it improperly. That is why it is extremely important to maintain safety protocols when working UV-C equipment, keeping the skin away and/or wearing protective gear. Many UV-C disinfection carts, including the ones offered at HomElectrical, are equipped with motion sensors to prevent unsafe operation.
