PURO Lighting Uses UV-C Light Technology for Air and Surface Disinfection

In a world where pandemics and other health threats are always a possibility, it’s more important than ever to have reliable air and surface disinfection solutions in place. PURO Protect 222 is the latest product from PURO Lighting, and it uses Far UV-C technology to provide continuous disinfection of both the air and surfaces in occupied spaces.

The Far UV-C Difference 

The PURO Protect 222 is designed for autonomous, continuous disinfection of both air and surfaces in high traffic and high contact areas. The unit emits UV-C light at a wavelength of 222 nanometers, which is effective at inactivating bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. This UV-C light penetrates the cell walls of these microbes and disrupts their DNA, rendering them unable to reproduce or cause infection. PURO Protect 222 products have been proven to inactivate dangerous viruses and germs, including today’s SARS- CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19.

Nothing Left To Chance 

Far UV-C technology has been demonstrated safe for use in populated places and effective against a broad variety of bacterial, viral, and fungal infections by Columbia University and other research organizations. Continuous operation of Protect 222 in accordance with written instructions fulfills the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH®) 2021 exposure criteria for inhabited space as defined by the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC). 

Powered by Ushio’s patented CARE222® filtered Far UV-C technology and Acuity Brands Lighting’s patent-pending dosage controllers and other technology, PURO Protect 222 employs a short pass filter to remove UV wavelengths that can penetrate living tissue in skin or beyond the tear layer of the eyes, resulting in a safe, narrow band of 222 UV light emission. In fact, PURO Protect 222 is one of the only Far UV products that have been UL approved to fulfill US regulations for germicidal equipment for use in inhabited spaces and is categorized in the photobiological risk category. 

Ready To Take On Tough Situations 

There are two PURO Protect 222 devices available: a single Far UV emitter, ceiling-mounted device that provides continuous air and surface disinfection in inhabited environments, and the Protect 222 High Bay, which has two Far UV light emitters for usage in industrial and commercial buildings. 

Bathrooms, sterile processing, emergency departments, critical care units, nurse’s stations, urgent care centers, patient exam rooms, waiting rooms, and other high-traffic locations in healthcare benefit from both items.
