Part of the portfolio includes UV-C fixtures ideal for upper-air and deep surface disinfection in offices, schools and restrooms. They can be equipped with sensors and controls to ensure that they only operate when people aren’t present.
For the disinfection of objects, Signify is launching a range of quick-to-use UV-C disinfection chambers. These chambers can be used in offices and municipal buildings to disinfect visitor tags, phones, bags, laptops and wallets in a matter of seconds. In stores, they’re ideal for disinfecting returned items, glasses or clothes tried on in a changing room. Signify is working with customers to pilot solutions for the disinfection of surfaces and objects.
To complement its portfolio, Signify recently acquired the assets of Germicidal Lamps & Applications (GLA), a small, Netherlands-based company with extensive expertise in UV-C disinfection solutions. The deal includes GLA’s upper-room UV-C air disinfection portfolio as well as deep application knowledge.
The upper-room air disinfection luminaires can be used with people in the room, as they are installed at a height which, in combination with shielding and optics, is designed to prevent exposure to the UV-C light source. Air in the upper part of the room is continuously disinfected using UV-C irradiation and natural convection of airflow in the room. This makes these perfect for use in schools, offices, gyms, retail outlets and other high-contact areas.
For more than 35 years, Signify has been at the forefront of UV technology. Signify’s UV-C lighting is designed, installed and used according to the product-specific safety instructions and manufactured using well-controlled industrial processes.
