Stay On Top With Upper Air UVC Light Solutions-  Blog Image

There are many reasons why using UVC light disinfection systems will greatly help reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses throughout your facility. These specialized lamps produce an ultraviolet (UV) light that disrupts growth and deactivates existing growths, aiding in the disinfection of surfaces, water and more. Using one in your production facility can help improve everything from air quality to the health and well-being of you and your occupants. By treating the air circulating in your heating and cooling system, UV germicidal lamps can kill mold and destroy airborne viruses and bacteria that, ultimately, lead to colds, flus and other illnesses. This can keep you and employees healthy.

In-AHU and In-Duct fixtures are installed inside a facility’s ventilation systems to provide high-level, facility-wide disinfection of the airborne infectious pathogens that can cause respiratory sickness, disease, and infection. These surface disinfection UV fixtures are designed for high-level disinfection of contaminated surfaces that can spread infection.

  • Appropriate for temporary disinfection of floors, desks, and table surfaces that have been contaminated.
  • Ideal for treatment of difficult-to-disinfect surfaces, such as keyboards, monitors, lab and cafeteria equipment.
  • Surface disinfection units are available in both fixed and portable options.


Similarly, Upper Air UVC Light Solutions are another great way to use UVC light solutions in your facility.


Upper Air UVC Light Solutions

Upper-air UVC refers to a disinfection zone of UV energy that is located above people in the rooms they occupy. This kills airborne pathogens in the room where they are released. Fixtures are installed to prevent direct UV exposures to people in the room. These fixtures are designed to provide very targeted airborne pathogen reduction in high-risk areas.

  • Units can be used for high or low ceilings and for any square footage.
  • Units can be permanently or temporarily installed for flexible space uses.
  • Natural convection-currents create repeated air disinfection within defined spaces. Fan assisted models are available.


2X2 Upper UVC (CDC Series) - The CDU upper air diffuser unit combines dynamic and passive UVC disinfection for high-risk areas. This unit is engineered to use existing 2x2 supply diffuser or use an internal fan along with upper air UVC for stand alone, high-rate pathogen reduction. These Solutions are best used in common areas.

  • Lobbies
  • Waiting Areas
  • Service / Help Counters
  • Classrooms
  • Offices


High Ceiling Mount UVC (GC Series) - The GC series is for use in large open spaces where ceiling mounting is preferred. The open design of the GC series allows for a wide field of UVGI above the heads of occupants. This allows the unit to be highly effective at inactivation of pathogens in the upper-air space.


High Ceiling Wall Mount UVC (GL Series) - The GL series open style UV fixtures are wall mounted upper-air systems for use in spaces with high ceilings. The open design of the GL series allows for a wide field of UVGI above the heads of occupants. This allows the unit to be highly effective at inactivation of pathogens in the upper-air space.


Portable Upper Air Units (MED 418 and 435 Series) - The MED units are a highly-target, upper-air system designed to be portable. Because these solutions are portable, they are better used for assemblies that are not permanent or travel from one place to the next.

  • Temporary Medical Structures
  • Emergency Shelters
  • Traveling Events
  • First Aid Tents
  • Disaster Relief Temporary Structures


Low Ceiling Wall Mount UVC (WM Series) - The WM series fixtures are for use in areas where wall mounting is preferred and the ceiling height is lower. The louvered design of this series allows for the upper-air field of UV to stay in a straight line above the heads of the occupants, allowing for effective pathogen mitigation while maintaining CDC/NIOSH upper-air guidelines.
