As the nation makes plans to safely return to the classroom, board room and industrial centers, an innovative lighting and air purification system designed to reduce bacterial and viral pathogens is available from FSC Lighting in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
The lighting system has been shown to be effective at targeting infectious pathogens like salmonella, staphylococcus, escherichia, shigella, listeria, and destroys the rafts that SARS-CoV-2 needs to thrive.
Through a combination of three pathogen-fighting technologies—CleanWhite™ LED lighting fixtures, CleanBox UV Sterilization Fixtures and Virtual Midnight Intelligent Optimization—FSC Lighting provides a method to reducing airborne illness through overhead lighting and air purification in work spaces and classrooms is attainable.
CleanWhite™ LED Lighting penetrates harmful microorganisms by emitting a 405 and 470 nanometer wavelength of disinfecting light onto surfaces. FSC’s CleanWhite is also proven effective on MRSA, salmonella and other surface pathogens.
Unlike other light-based disinfection methods, CleanWhite™ LED Lighting and CleanBox are completely safe to use in occupied spaces, which allows employees and students to continue working and studying in a well-lit and protected environment.
CleanBox UV Sterilization Fixtures mount like traditional overhead light fixtures but also utilize built-in fans that move air through an enclosed Titanium dioxide filter, irradiated with UVA 365 nanometer energy and UVC 254 nanometer sterilization chamber. Each CleanBox can sterilize up to 9,000 cubic feet of space from bacteria and viruses. Multiple units can be utilized for larger areas.
A recent study conducted by the National Institutes of Health (October 2020) determined that “the SARS-CoV-2 virus is relatively easily inactivated by UV-C light” and that “SARS-CoV-2 when suspended in air should be reasonably easy to inactivate using UVC light at 254 nm.”
Both CleanBox and CleanWhite™ are integrated with FSC’s Virtual Midnight Intelligent Optimization system, an automation tool that monitors occupancy and light levels, as well as sunrise and sunset times, to run nighttime disinfection cycles when rooms are empty.
Once installed, Virtual Midnight can be programmed for a two- to five-hour disinfection cycle that will target airborne and surface pathogens at the darkest point between dusk and dawn.
CleanWhite™ LED lighting is available in wide range of fixtures, including traditional troffers and retrofit kits, LED strips, vapor-tight lighting and more.
CleanBox technology has potential applications in many other indoor spaces, including healthcare centers, retail stores, restaurants or institutional and industrial facilities.
