UVGI Technology For Schools
Using UV for infection control in schools has been gaining traction recently. School directors are looking for new ways to reduce disease transmissions. Active infection control protocols are on the rise, and UV light disinfection is at the forefront of the movement.
At Light Progress, we’re way ahead of the game. Our systems are designed to disinfect schools to create better full-end indoor air quality. We use UV for infection control, including fans, UV in HVAC, and upper-air UV to make schools safer, and stop the spread of viruses, bacteria, molds, spores, and mites.
Each day in the United States, roughly 56.6 million students attend public and private elementary, middle, and high school schools. Along with the additional 7 million staff members, students and employees are constantly susceptible to infectious illnesses like influenza and the common cold, which are transmitted via airborne and surface pathogens.
Our UVGI Solutions For Schools Include:
- UV Fans
- UV for HVAC Portfolio
- UV Flow for upper air
- UV Boxes and Cabinets for A/V equipment
- UV Water
- UV Direct Lights for locker room
- UV Mobile
- UV Penta
How We Apply UVGI For Schools
We get it; schools are filled with germs. Kids cough and sneeze and spread pathogens to one another. While we can’t eliminate flu-season, we can significantly aid in infection control. Preventing illness is the best way to protect students, faculty, and staff members at a school.
UVGI (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation) is a disinfection method that uses UV-C light to kill harmful bacteria and other microorganisms. Upper-air UV-C units have been in use in classrooms for decades. At Light Progress, we’re using advanced UV for infection control to create a safer, healthier school environment.
Our systems work by creating an extermination zone in the top area of a space. Our systems are designed to help lift airborne infectious agents into the air, where they are exposed to the UV light and killed. By killing the pathogens that circulate through the air at a school, we can help reduce, and in some cases, block dangerous pathogens from accumulating on or flowing in school air and surfaces.
How Does it Work?
Our UVGI technology systems were created to destroy bacteria at the source, the DNA chain, and eliminate DNA reproduction. The germicidal effects of the UV-C radiation kill spores, mildew, parasites, viruses, and bacteria. UV lights don’t contain any harmful chemicals like other disinfectants that can eventually lead to long-term health damage. UVGI in schools is the easiest, safest way to battle microorganisms without creating any resistance.
How We Combat Pathogens With Our HVAC Systems?
Air-conditioning systems, and especially AHU. (Air handling units)Are like a perfect breeding ground for microbial organisms, pathogens, spores, molds, and more. Air recirculation, temperature fluctuations, and humidity allow microorganisms to connect and stick to surfaces inside the AC system. They create an unpleasant film called biofilm that can clog the filters and ducts, and can reduce system efficiency up to 40%. We’re committed to keeping our customers safe. Our HVAC systems are equipped with UV lights to kill organic growths, like mold and bacteria, and prevent biofilm buildup on the cooling coils, drain pans, and interior duct surfaces. This improves air quality, airflow, and reduces maintenance.
