UV Light Disinfection Technology for Healthcare Spaces

In a space with patients and caregivers, don't compromise on your pathogen controlsystems

Pathogen control1 in a healthcare setting is as critical as the personnel you hire to the medical equipment you purchase. UV light disinfection* technology for pathogen load reduction is an essential, long-term investment to aid in the reduction of pathogen1 associated with healthcare acquired infections and the wellbeing of people in a healthcare setting.

UV technology can reduce pathogens1 in healthcare settings, allowing patients and employees to be in a treated space. Acuity Brands offers 3 modern UV solutions for surface and air pathogen inactivation1 of both occupied and unoccupied spaces such as patient rooms, operating rooms, lobbies, waiting areas and more. UV light has the ability to inactivate pathogens1 by disrupting the DNA and RNA of the pathogen, making sure it cannot replicate or spread. This reduces pathogens that are associated with healthcare acquired infections. We offer a portfolio of solutions that can operate continuously and episodically based on your treatment needs whether that is 24/7 in a waiting room or scheduled treatment in a surgical suite after an operation. A set of our solutions combine white light and UV light to address room treatment needs as well as lighting and controls requirements. A set of UV-only solutions are also available for those looking to just address room treatment. Acuity Brands UV solutions are designed for any project you have in mind whether it is renovation or new construction. Each solution is equipped with a set of safety features and controls to prevent accidental UV exposure, and they have been rigorously tested to ensure proper UV dosage in line with regulatory standards.
