UV-DIRECT by Light Progress is a high output ceiling or wall mounted Ultra Violet Germicidal Light fitting that provides deep air and surface disinfection in almost any type of environment. Traditional cleaning methods alone are at times often not sufficient to ensure high levels of hygiene. The process of disinfection can be greatly improved by introducing the use of UV-C technology.
Now more than ever, occupied environments are required to be disinfected to meet regulatory hygiene standards. With UV-DIRECT, it is possible to perform a deeper disinfection of all room site locations, in a simple, immediate, and safe way, without developing heat, without using liquids and without any contraindications or resistance.
The UV-C lamps, with emission peak at 253.7 nm (nanometres), have a strong germicidal effect against micro-organisms (moulds, bacteria and viruses). UV-DIRECT can be operated within many target zone environments to achieve a deep disinfection of air and surfaces.
UV-DIRECT should be ceiling mounted in a central location. Room size dependant the installation of multiple units should be carried out to distribute UV Rays uniformly throughout the environment (to avoid shadows, such as corners and therefore allowing best all surface and room zone air to be treated. UV Direct shall be installed by a qualified electrical contractor.
Electrical installation can be tied into existing facility lighting and alarm control systems in which to operate effective cycle times, out of ours or in between occupancy states, in a safe manner. Personnel cannot be present during operation. LAF tech can also provide cost effective master control systems for enabled safe effective operational cycles of multiple UV-C light fittings. The dedicated control unit is equipped with timers to manage a start delay and treatment duration. Entry door switch disable function, tie in PIR Motion sensors option available for automatic deactivation in the event of unsafe entry by personnel-individuals into to the UV-C active environment.
Fault feedback status on UVC lamps is also available.
In little time the disinfection level of UV-DIRECT can achieve a reduction of over 99.9% on live bacteria strains such as Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus etc. A higher level of disinfection can be achieved depending on surfaces and extended cycle times selected by the operator.
Thanks to natural air circulation, even microbes located in hidden areas are continually drawn towards the irradiated area, so that their overall level progressively de-creases. In which to avoid exposure to harmful UV-C rays, the operation of UV-DIRECT is permitted only in the absence of personnel and only by facility trained and authorised operators.
Designed to improve Hygiene and Safety in Healthcare, Aged Care, Hospitality, Educational Food Processing, Laboratory environments a typical operation would be post routine cleaning disinfection, in between shifts and occupancy states to vastly improve risk of biological contamination and the potential risk of cross contamination.
UV-DIRECT series includes a high output UV-C lamp lodged inside a stylish housing entirely made of stainless steel. UVC Ray emittance is vastly improved by a polished aluminium screen. This increases performance by reflecting the proportion of UV-C which should be dispersed in the direction of room zone target surfaces. The UV-C lamps, with emission peak at 253.7 nm (nanometers), have a strong germicidal power against all organisms (fungi, bacteria and viruses).
The shaped case consists of a box of stainless steel AISI 304, within which a watertight Aluminium channel is located, containing the electronic power supply, with degree of protection IP 55.
The UV-C lamp can also be protected by a grid of stainless steel AISI 304 (standard option).
DEEP AND CONTINUOUS DISINFECTION This device can be switched on continuously without people-individuals being present (i.e. during the night for 2-3 hours). The disinfection of air, equipment, furniture and fittings contained inside the activated room allows re-entry back into ideal hygienic conditions. The continued reduction of microbial load in one site is now maintained and further assured.
PHYSICAL ACTION AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION Treatment by UV-C rays is purely physical, achieving the same repeatable efficacy results. Many alternate methods of chemical treatment involve the use of dangerous toxic products, harmful for the environment, and difficult to biodegrade. Over use of chemicals alone can assist developed resistant microbial forms with consequent danger to human health.
PRACTICALITY AND ECONOMY Treatment is immediate and always ready to utilise. Maintenance is minimal with low costs of both energy consumption and ongoing service.
IMMEDIATE EFFECT Effective treatment (99.9% bacteria reduction).
NO CHEMICAL/PHYSICAL CHANGES Food production. Treatment is cold and dry; UVC does not cause organoleptic or qualitative changes to the end product.
NO DANGER OF GLASS DISPERSION With special UVLON® protection and Stainless-steel protective grills, there is no danger of glass fragments dispersion resulting from any breakage of UV-C lamps.
