How UV Lighting Helps Sanitize

 UV-C, or germicidal light, emits rapid, chemical-free rays from 200-280 nanometers and according to an IES report, have shown to be highly effective in destroying germs and bacteria upon contact. With minimal human contact and proper protection, this makes for an effective way to clean your space.

UV lighting is non-toxic and is safe for use on food, water, and inanimate surfaces. People are advised to avoid excessive exposure to direct rays, but small doses of contact are significantly less harmful than the substances used in chemical disinfectants.

Is it safe to use?

UV light is known to cause damage to the skin, so it is recommended that people limit their exposure to the germicidal lamps as it can have harmful effects to the eyes and skin. To prevent any hazards, it is critical the fixtures are installed correctly and staff are educated and properly trained on its usage.

Puro Lighting recognized this safety hazard and took extra safety measures by using military-grade PIR vacancy sensors for their UV products that will stop operating when someone walks into the room.

Types of UV Lighting Products

There are several types of  UV lighting that can be used for air and surface sanitization in large facilities and office spaces.

Ceiling & Downlight Sanitization

Ideal for spaces with a large surface area that requires cleaning multiple surfaces or an entire room. They work on-demand and only need one cycle. Products like the Kenall Indigo-Clean Technology and the Cleanse® Retrofit Troffer eliminate the possibility of manual, human error by directly covering entire surfaces.

Portable & Mobile Sanitization Devices

These products are designed to be easily transported from room to room, making it an ideal choice for businesses like hotels and childcare. Manufacturers, such as Puro Lighting, create portable units that are perfect for spot treatments on areas with unpredictable traffic patterns.

Sanitizing Entry Gate

The Cleanse® Portal by Healthe® by Lighting Science is a revolutionary and safe method to reduce the spread of infection.  By simply stepping into the portal, making a slow 360-degree turn for a 20-second dosage, surface pathogens are rendered inactive. Position this free-standing portal in any high traffic or critical entry point to significantly reduce infection transmission. 

Monterey Lighting Solutions works with manufacturers like Healthe® by Lighting Science, Puro Lighting, Kenall, and Pinnacle Lighting to bring you technology that will meet your standards for safety and effectiveness in your everyday spaces.
