Ultra Violet &  Non-UV Disinfectant

UV Lighting

Learn the science behind why Ultraviolet Light Technology is a core component in clean lighting solutions.

Which Wavelength of UV Light Deactivates viruses?

Ultraviolet (UV) light is invisible to the human eye and split into three different wavelengths. The letter at the end of the UV designation A, B or C, indicates the light’s wavelength — an important distinction.

  • UV-A from 315 nm to 400 nm 
  • UV-B from, 280 nm to 315 nm
  • UV-C from, 200 nm to 280 nm (Strongest Germicidal Wavelengths)

What Is Ultraviolet Light Technology?

The wavelength UV-C shows the ability to deactivate the DNA of viruses, bacteria & fungi, eliminating their ability to spread disease. For the past 40 years, UV-C light has been used to disinfect water, air, and surfaces to mitigate the spread of infection. However, because UV-C light can be harmful to human tissue, new UV technology has been developed that is safe for humans yet deadly for viruses. FAR-UV-C light operates at the frequency of 222 nanometers and kills airborne flu viruses without harming human tissues.*(add sources)

Product Examples

Germicidal Upper Air Sconce GUAS
The Germicidal Upper-Air Sconce(GUA S) fixture is a wall-mounted sconce designed for upper air germicidal irradiation. This UVC light is a safe way to cleanse the upper air in the room. A proximity detection sensor comes standard with each unit to ensure it will not come into contact with humans or animals.
GUL P - Germicidal upper air 360 degree pendant
The GUL P is a pendant luminaire designed for upper air germicidal irradiation. These fixtures provide 360 degrees of 254nm UVC irradiation from low-wattage, ozone-free PLL lamps to reduce airborne pathogens. The electronic ballast is specifically matched to the lamps for optimal performance and lifetime.

NON-UV Lighting Technology

Germicidal or Anti-Microbial Lighting

On the other end of the light spectrum, there is NON-UV Germicidal Technology or Anti-Microbial Lighting which does not kill viruses. This type of lighting proves to actually kill bacteria and can run 24/7 with no harm to human tissue, permitting safe sterilization while humans are present.

 

Visible Light Safety Zone

Product Example: NON-UV Light Fixture Unit

The LED Germicidal Air Chamber utilizes anti-viral and anti-bacterial lighting technology. It contains high-performance LEDs from IllumiPure which are near-UV and part of the normal visible LED spectrum. This technology is completely harmless to humans and animals. Fans circulate air into a chamber in the back of the luminaire, so you can safely work while the downlight cleanses the room!
