Germicidal LED Lighting 

COVID-19 has changed the landscape in many ways. With society being required to change their ways, the same has applied for the lighting industry. Now, lighting can be used in ways beyond just illuminating a space. Through our distribution agreements, Slatercom is able to offer our customers a few different manufacturer lines of germicidal lighting. Like any new wave of technology, research must be done to insure effectiveness and in this case, safety. Not only have our manufacturers done this research, but we at Slatercom have as well and will continue to do so as the industry grows. 

LumenFocus UVF Focus

The new UVFocus product line from LumenFocus features luminaires designed for pathogen eradication. These products utilize UVC or near-UV technology. According to the International Ultraviolet Association, UV technology can play a role in reducing the transmission of COVID-19. UV is a disinfectant for air, water and surfaces. This technology has been used for many years now. LumenFocus is introducing a new line of UVC products - the GUA series, and the GCD. When used correctly, these luminaires can help mitigate the risk of COVID-19 infection. UVC disinfection should be used with other avenues in a multi-faceted approach to ensure that if a pathogen is not killed by one particular method, it is rendered inactive by the UVC. Since the COVID-19 virus can live on plastic and steel surfaces for three days, normal cleaning can leave behind contamination. Utilizing UVC products can help mitigate this.


GUA

LumenFocus' GUA product line of upper air germicidal luminaires can be used to reduce airborne pathogens - bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19. These products utilize low-wattage, ozone-free GUVT8 lamps producing 254nm UVC. When mounted at the specified height, the UVC light produced by these luminaires will not come into contact with humans and pets. These products can be used in many applications:

  • Lobbies

  • Hallways

  • Offices

  • Bathrooms

  • Conference Rooms

  • Hotels

  • Retail


GCD

The GCD provides direct germicidal eradication, and is designed to be powered on when the room is unoccupied. The GCD hangs in the corner where the wall meets the ceiling. The GCD utilizes low-wattage, ozone-free GUVT8 lamps producing 254nm UVC. It is available in 1-lamp or 2-lamp versions. Constructed of durable cold rolled steel, it is available in silver (standard), white or black powder coated finish. A stainless steel housing option is available as well. The polished aluminum reflector is optimized for UVC wavelength for the irradiation of pathogens.  A wireguard comes standard for added safety. The GCD is suitable for:

  • Lobbies

  • Hallways

  • Offices

  • Bathrooms

  • Conference Rooms

  • Hotels

  • Retail

A reverse occupancy sensor powers off the unit when a person is detected in the occupancy zone. The GCD powers back on when the area is unoccupied.


GLS

Like the GCD, the GLS provides direct germicidal eradication and is designed to be used in unoccupied rooms. The GLS can be recessed into grid ceilings or surface-mounted. It also utilizes low-wattage, ozone-free GUVT8 lamps producing 254nm UVC. It is also available in 1-lamp or 2-lamp versions. Constructed of durable cold rolled steel, it is available in silver (standard), white or black powder coated finish. A stainless steel housing option is available as well. The polished aluminum reflector is optimized for UVC wavelength for the irradiation of pathogens.  A wireguard comes standard for added safety. The GLS works as a great compliment to the GCD - with the GCD mounted in the corners of the room, and the GLS providing additional irradiation in the middle or throughout the room as needed.

The GLS is suitable for:

  • Lobbies

  • Hallways

  • Offices

  • Bathrooms

  • Conference Rooms

  • Hotels

  • Retail

Just like the GCD, the GLS features reverse occupancy sensor powers off the unit when a person is detected in the occupancy zone. The GLS powers back on when the area is unoccupied.

FFLD & FFRD

With the FFLD and FFRD, LumenFocus has introduced high performance disinfecting LEDs from IllumiPure to our FormFocus product line. When the lights are kept on, these LEDs provide continuous disinfection for hard or soft surfaces, killing 99.9 percent of bacteria such as MRSA, C. Difficile, Salmonella and E. Coli.

The FFRD is a retrofit kit, available in 2x2 and 2x4 sizes, that can be installed into an existing troffer housing quickly and easily (3-5 minutes). The FFLD is a matching new luminaire.

Because the LEDs used in the FFLD and FFRD utilize a 405nm near-UV wavelength that is part of the normal visible LED spectrum, these products are completely harmless to humans and animals.

The FFLD and FFRD can be used in a variety of applications:

  • Offices

  • Retail

  • Classrooms

  • Healthcare facilities

  • Labs and clinics
