Where is Black Light used?
Black light spotlights can make fluorescent fabrics and light materials such as white T-shirts or clothes in neon colours glow. They can be used to achieve amazing effects with little financial outlay. Many clubs and discos use black light LED spotlights to make their guests' T-shirts glow.
The UV floodlights are particularly popular, for example, as lighting for theme parties where the guests wear appropriate clothing. But artists also use the effect for their elaborate stage shows at concerts, magic shows and similar events.

Are black light spots bad for the eyes?
Black light spotlights emit an ultraviolet light that is not visible to the human eye. The reason for this is that we can only perceive light with a wavelength between 380 and 780 nanometres. However, UV radiation is in the range between 100 and 380 nanometres. UV radiation is divided into UVA, UVB and UVC radiation. Light sources are illumination in the UVA range between 315 and 380 nanometres.
UVA light is the safest of the three, but therefore not completely harmless.
However, experts assume that the low wattage of black light lamps is not sufficient to cause damage. Especially because the UV lamps are usually not in the immediate vicinity of the body (in contrast to the irradiation of the skin in a solarium or similar).
What is the difference between black light and UV light?
There is technically no difference between UV light and black light. Black light has simply developed as a olloquial term for UVA lighting.
