ASPA International launches handheld UV-C light disinfection lamp

We were inspired to create a solution to help manage and ultimately defeat COVID-19
– Martin Goldmann

For over 30 years, ASPA International has designed and built high-quality spas for the hotel, health and wellness sectors.

During the 2020 lockdowns, it conceived, designed and began manufacturing the hand-held ASPA Surface Purifier using UV-C for disinfection.

Invisible to the human eye, UV-C light fights harmful germs, killing bacteria, spores and mould, breaking down the DNA+RNA structure of viruses and bacteria, so they no longer reproduce or infect people.

The compact plug-in product can be used easily in a commercial spa or domestic setting to disinfect surfaces with UV-C light – requiring no mess, handling chemicals or follow-up disposal of chemical matter.

ASPA CEO and founder Martin Goldmann explained that the company was inspired to create the lamp in order “to create a solution to help manage and ultimately defeat COVID-19”.

UV-C light is backed by research to eliminate 99.99 per cent of all bacteria and viruses, making it an ideal companion for spa operators disinfecting both wet and dry areas with high human footfall.

At present, the purifier is a 21W unit and comes with safety instructions, gloves and a face shield, but ASPA is producing a larger 40W model for launch in early 2021.

Goldmann revealed to Spa Business that the company is also preparing for a major UV-C product roll-out in 2021.

“During Q1 we’re going to launch UV-C disinfection applications for water filtration, sauna, steamrooms and hammams and air conditioning ducting, alongside a wall-mounted air purifier with an ioniser and charcoal filter,” he said.
