Mark Architectural Lighting Introduces Whisper Care222
Simple design, sophisticated solution: Now available with Care222® Technology, Whisper Care222 provides continual reduction of active pathogens* in spaces where people congregate – even with people in the space.
Care222® technology uses filtered 222 nanometer UV-C light to inactivate a variety of bacteria and viruses in spaces like conference rooms, break rooms and rest rooms. A patented short pass filter ensures only a narrow band of 222nm UV-C light is emitted, which does not penetrate living tissue in the skin or past tear layers in the eye, allowing for use in occupied spaces when following safety guidelines.
UV light disinfection** technology inactivates viruses and bacteria by disrupting their RNA/DNA which prevents reproduction. To create the ideal pathogen control layer for your space, Whisper Care222 is available as 2’ X 2’ and 2’ X 4’ troffers, offering either one or two Care222® modules.
Whisper Care222 solutions offer a variety of options including CRI, color temperature, and lumen packages. Delivering up to 8500 lumens, Whisper Care222 supports common control strategies including 0-10v, nLight, and nLight Air.
