Is Ultraviolet Light Safe For Humans?

Yes and no. There is a reason you wear hats, sunscreen and sunglasses when you go out in the sun. But how harmful the UV light is to humans really depends on where on the light spectrum we are talking about. The Vioguard technology zaps pathogens at the “optimal germicidal wavelength” within the “germicidal range.” What does that mean? It means there is a specific point (254 nanometers to be exact) where UV light has the most success in killing pathogens. Humans should not be exposed to light within this range. That’s why we’ve come up with leak-proof product designs like our FDA-cleared UVKB-50 to protect users from exposure to harmful rays. Click here to learn more about UV-C technology in general.

How Do I Know Vioguard Products Aren’t Exposing Me to UV-C?

The original Defender design was cleared by the FDA. Their rigorous series of tests included testing the design for leakage. That being said, it is important to set the device up correctly to ensure safety and avoid damage to the product. Please see the user manuals for more information about setup and use safety.

Do Vioguard Products Differ From Others When It Comes to Safety?

There are some UV products out there that do not have any kind of cover. Some of these dose surfaces at a less-powerful wavelength in order to be deemed “safe.” However, we’ve found that a more powerful does ensures a high kill rate of germs which is why Vioguard has chosen to use ultraviolet light within the optimal point of the germicidal range. There is a reason room cleaning robots and air purifiers require rooms to be void of any people while they are in use. To avoid that extra step of leaving the room, Vioguard products are created with lock-tight seals to prevent UV-C light exposure to end users. After all, your safety is the reason we make these products in the first place: THAT is our priority.
