A lot has been shared about the opportunities to improve the safety of our occupied spaces with Far UV light; with a multitude of academics providing detailed peer reviewed  lab studies and industry stakeholders providing real-world case studies on the thousands of installations and millions of people successfully protected.  Those can be found elsewhere on this website, in peer-reviewed publications and/or we would be happy to point you in the right direction for anything you might not be able to find or have questions on.

As new companies have entered the market, however, far less information has been collectively gathered and publicized about the significant differences between the Far UV offerings available.  Often, the least expensive offerings may look similar to more expensive offerings and even use some of the same components, making end users and even subject matter experts believe they are comparable in performance.  However, the safety, efficacy, efficiency, cost, ease of procurement and installation, reliability and customer service can vary significantly between vendors and their products.  We have recently been advised that we may not be allowed per individual state level EPA guidance to provide publicly available comparison data of competitive offerings on our website.  While we disagree with not being able to provide transparent comparisons to provide better decision making for consumers, we are following their guidance.

  • Far UV Technologies began researching and developing products long before COVID.  This has allowed it to secure the broadest IP portfolio in the industry,  commercialize its solutions sooner than others and integrate important engineering lessons learned in the labs and in the field to provide superior safety, performance, reliability and lifetime costs for end users.
  • While we have been deployed on 6 continents, we believe our domestic manufacturing and customer service ensures unparalleled quality, commissioning and support.  In our efforts to continually accelerate our innovative solutions, we haven’t always been perfect (and neither are other companies as they start out) but our past lessons learned over the years have put us far ahead of the competition and we strive for continuous improvement to sustain that lead.
  • Any devices shown have enough power to exceed the Threshold Limit Values for safety (at minimum including those over 10W input power) should utilize optical filters to avoid unwanted wavelengths.
  • Far UV Technologies values safety first in all of its product design considerations.  Our solutions are engineered to never be able to exceed the TLVs in application when used as directed.  Eliminating the chance of user error (whether they are sophisticated users, unsophisticated users, children, pets or otherwise) makes our customers more confident.
  • We bolster our safety claims by having our products independently certified for photobiological, electrical and ozone compliance by UL, CE and CARB.
  • Far UV Technologies often employs a patent pending custom power supply which allows it far more capabilities to dynamically vary power, improve efficiency and significantly improve reliability.  Given the significant variability of almost any available bulb output (+/- 20%), every Krypton light is tested before shipment and out of spec bulbs are binned or adjusted via the custom power supply back into our industry leading tight specifications (+/- 5%).  The more reliable power supply allows us to have the longest expected product life and warranty in the business.
  • The optional use of a diffuser allows for maximum protection in low ceiling applications while not requiring its use and power sacrifice in higher ceiling applications.  Far UV Technologies utilizes custom patent pending diffuser solutions that provide about double the output power of other industry diffuser options.
  • The power out of competing solutions are probably best-case scenarios based on the thousands of components we have tested.  When factoring in the additional power available with our custom power supply and the tight tolerances, we can see as much as double the output power of competitive devices, all while remaining safely under the threshold limit values.  Lower powered devices can require many more units to provide comparable power output and efficacy depending on the space protected and thus incur directly proportional cost increases when commissioning spaces.
  • Occupancy sensing can significantly increase bulb life .  If a solution utilizes a duty cycle to extend life or obtain compliance with TLVs, it would come at a cost of less protection.
  • We have patent pending DIY (Do It Yourself) replacement bulb solutions with safety disconnects, to significantly reduce maintenance and lifetime costs.  These devices are intended to be a part of customers infrastructure and the return on investment should be evaluated over longer term horizons of 10+ years.  The lower upfront cost solutions are often the most expensive for end users when considering these longer term horizons.  Decoupling the bulb from the device also allows us to have the longest expected product life and warranty in the business.
  • Real-time end of life sensing (at 70% power) allow users to make sure they are protected at all times with their investment.  The variability of bulb life has not been consistent enough to rely on an hour counter with indicator light alone.
  • A broader range of installation and product options and more experienced professionals can often make or break a project’s cost and successful implementation.  Our team is comprised of NALMCO Certified GUV Management Consultants with the most installations and experience in the industry.
  • Our products are uniquely available via Federal and State sole sourcing alternatives including National Stock Numbers issued by the Defense Logistics Agency, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business GSA Schedules and the SBIR Mandate that indicates Federal purchasers must purchase from SBIR companies unless they can get a signed waiver from the SBA: https://www.sbir.gov/tutorials/data-rights/tutorial-4.
