  • Autonomous Disinfection Robot (ADR): By combining the power of UVC lights with an autonomous mobile platform, the ADR s able to disinfect large spaces like airport terminals, manufacturing plants, office lobbies, hallways, and cafeterias effectively without any human interaction and/or supervision. Intelligent onboard sensors enable the robot to avoid obstacles yet perform the disinfection service safely and continuously. Data is made available to track the robot's runtime, location, and disinfection history.
  • UVC Disinfection Cart: This modular cart can easily be positioned into a room or space and will provide air and surface disinfection quickly and effectively. Its modular design allows the operator to position the lights in a way that can eliminate shadows, making the disinfection process more effective for irregular shaped rooms by  enveloping the entire room in UVC light.  It can disinfect a 36' x 36' room in less than 20 minutes.  Smaller rooms, such as 12' x 12', will be disinfected in a little as eight minutes. Built-in motion sensors and operation from a remote controlled tablet ensure safe operation. Intelligent controls allow for usage data to be reported and viewed via the web to track your disinfection results.
  • UVC Disinfection Cabinet: Designed for a variety of items including laptops, tablets, office supplies, and medical instruments, this cabinet quickly disinfects up to 30 electronic devices in just a few minutes. UVC light provides powerful disinfection capabilities without fear of damaging displays or electronics, according to the company. The cabinet is available with or without device charging capability and can be easily modified to disinfect other objects. Typical disinfection time is four minutes. Built-in safety measures prevent any possible exposure to UVC light while the system is in use. 

“By harnessing the disinfection properties of UVC light we are giving customers a more efficient path towards disinfection services,” said Chris Proud, CEO, Safe Space Technologies. “In a time when many businesses are required to thoroughly disinfect their environments on a level they have never had to before, our products provide a safer environment with better disinfection results in much less time while reducing the amount of harsh chemicals and manpower.” 

The Bottom Line:  Safe Space Technologies UVC Disinfection Solutions can be used in a variety of locations including high traffic shared spaces like malls, gyms, hotels, retail locations, classrooms, commercial properties, and checkout lines.
