Why blue light?

The world has changed. All organisations are looking for more sustainable and healthier ways to do business — looking for ways to reduce chemical load, save water and eliminate toxic substances such as mercury from their processes.

The pandemic has also reminded us about the critical importance of good hygiene practices in preventing the spread of pathogens and keeping our societies open. Leading businesses, governments and healthcare operators alike have stepped up to protect their staff and customers from infections with increased disinfection measures.

Yet the old solutions for disinfection are not feasible: Strong chemicals cause long-term health issues and environmental damage. Ultraviolet (UV-C*) is highly dangerous for people and materials and generates ozone and toxic waste (contaning mercury). What's worse, the uncontrolled use of these methods can promote the development of new, resistant strains of pathogens that are even harder to eliminate.

What if we told you, that there is a 100% safe, 100% sustainable and 100% economical disinfection solution that you can deploy in virtually any environment? Without any of the adverse effects of the legacy methods.

* UVC is known to cause DNA damage to humans and to cause severe eye damage. UVC also degrades indoor materials, especially polymers, such as plastics, and pigments (discoloring of wall paint).

Natural & safe blue light disinfects indoor surfaces automatically

Visible blue light is a natural disinfectant that has been with us always. The germicidal effect of blue light has been known for decades, with over 2000 peer-reviewed scientific articles proving its efficacy.

Since 2014, LED Tailor R&D has perfected the technology needed to bring blue light disinfection into reality indoors. We are the first company in Europe to use blue light for surface disinfection and we have patented the method.

We started from the most critical environments, hospital ORs, and have now brought the solution available for offices, retail, public spaces, cruise ships and more. 

The blue light system is already being used for securing the safe production of food and beverages, restraining epidemics, preventing healthcare-associated infections, and answering the purity needs of cleanrooms.

The system in a nutshell

Spectral Blue by LED Tailor is the world's most advanced surface disinfection system.

The system consists of blue light disinfection devices, control automation and optional photocatalytic coating of surfaces.

The system can be deployed in virtually any kind of facility. Because it is safe for people, no extra training is required for your staff.

Scientifically proven efficacy

There are over 2000 peer-reviewed articles on the efficacy of visible blue light against different microbes. Blue light can eliminate all gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, yeast and mould. When combined with our photocatalytic coating, the system is extremely effective against viruses, VOCs, odours and spores too.
