UV Health Group, a US-based designer and manufacturer of antimicrobial, energy-efficient UV products, launched the SafeAirUV System portfolio. The portfolio consists of two products, Confidence LED Lighting, which offers state-of-the-art LED downlighting with virus-killing capabilities and can be installed in drop ceilings within minutes, and Assurance SafeAirUV fixtures provide the same virus-killing capabilities and can be mounted or hung from the ceiling. The SafeAirUV products actively circulate air and eradicate all airborne pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2, while people are safely in the room. The product is built with UV-C LEDs that are sealed in a chamber to ensure no humans are exposed to any UV-C light, offering a safer, more cost-effective and environmentally for commercial buildings.
Rigorously tested by the University of Missouri Laboratory for Infectious Disease Research (LIDR), the SafeAirUV System is proven to kill 99.9996% of aerosolized SARS-CoV-2 viruses and other harmful pathogenic organisms responsible for bacterial and viral diseases. The SafeAirUV System uses the most potent UV wavelength of 275nm to inactivate viral and bacterial DNA in particles of any size while exchanging the air in rooms multiple times per hour.
Paul Salzinger, Executive Vice President, UV Health Group, said: “A safe and successful return to public life is contingent upon long-term solutions backed by science that ensure virus-free air. The SafeAirUV System is designed to eliminate all airborne pathogens, ranging from SARS-CoV-2 to Influenza and even the common cold. Only the room air passing through the SafeAirUV chamber is exposed to the UV-C LEDs, meaning it is completely safe for people to be in the room while the SafeAirUV System is on. This a critical step in resuming business, school, hospitality and group living operations in public settings.”
Dr. Paul Anderson, Assistant Research Professor in Veterinary Pathobiology and Associate Director, LIDR, said: “The rise of epidemic infectious diseases and pathogens over the past decade culminated in COVID-19. If anything, we learned that we can’t afford to be reactive to future health crises. The best defence against the inevitability of future pandemics is a proactive product guaranteed to eradicate all airborne pathogens. In our tests, the SafeAirUV System quickly inactivated the SARS-CoV-2 virus to below a detectible amount.”
SafeAirUV™ System has been integrated into two product lines, Confidence™ LED Lighting and Assurance™ SafeAirUV fixtures. Confidence™ LED Lighting offers state-of-the-art LED downlighting with virus-killing capabilities and can be installed in drop ceilings in minutes. The Assurance™ SafeAirUV fixtures provide the same virus-killing capabilities and can be mounted or hung from the ceiling. The products are available to enterprise customers and through an expanding dealer network. Dealer inquiries are welcome.
