Protect your workforce from the COVID-19 virus with UV-C lighting systems from I.T.S

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the fact that ensuring a safe working environment for employees and limiting the spread of contagious pathogens wherever people congregate is a business imperative for us all. The scope of the virus has sharpened attention on ways to reduce contagious pathogens and provide safe spaces for our workers, customers and visitors as our businesses reopen and resume operations.

Upper-aid ultraviolet (UV) fixtures are among the most effective tools for reducing the risk of airborne disease transmission and have been recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other respected health authorities I.T.S. can provide, install, and service UV-C lighting systems that improve indoor air quality by killing both airborne and surface microorganisms.

Upper room air systems work by interrupting the transmission of airborne germs utilizing the natural rise and fall of convection or mechanical air currents to lift airborne pathogens into the upper part of a room where they are exposed to UV-C irradiation and killed. Typically, UV fixtures are wall mounted above 7 ft, and use baffles to direct the UV-C energy upward and outward, ensuring that no UV-C energy enters the occupied portion of the room.

GLOTM Upper Air UV-C Fixtures feature an innovative reflector design that provides the highest amount of UV energy output of any comparable UV unit. The unique design has a 170-degree horizontal angle of  irradiance, thus offering greater coverage. The higher output and wider coverage means less equipment required, less energy consumed and a more efficient unit. The units are lightweight and easy to install, and the GLOTM upper Air UV-C fixture exceeds performance guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and by the CDC for hospital and healthcare applications as well as other industry specifications and recommendations.

GLO fixtures are ideal for mitigating airborne infectious pathogens in all occupied spaces, such as shop floors, lobbies, waiting rooms, meeting rooms, cafeterias or lunchrooms, and other settings where employees work and people gather.

We all know that it is not always possible for workers to maintain recommended social distance, yet it is incumbent on us as employers to do all we can to  ensure the safety, health and well-being of our workforce.

Consider the benefits of installing UV-C lighting in your facility as an effective, low-cost, energy-efficient microbial risk reduction system for your employees, your customers and your business.
