Signify invests to broaden its UV-C lighting portfolio
Signify is increasing its UV-C lighting production capacity and expanding its UV-C product portfolio to address the growing global need for the disinfection of air, surfaces and objects.
By increasing capacity and broadening the UV-C portfolio, Signify is helping keep people safe in a world that’s adjusting to a new normal. Using the company’s UV-C lighting as an effective disinfectant has recently been validated in a laboratory test by Boston University, showing that Signify’s UV-C light sources inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19 in a matter of seconds. This is crucial as it comes at a time when organisations are seeking ways to continue operations and provide service in a safe environment.
Signify’s new UV-C product range includes luminaires and chambers for a wide variety of professional applications. “We have introduced 12 families of UV-C lighting fixtures specifically designed to disinfect air, surfaces and objects. These products target different customer segments ranging from offices, schools, gyms, retail stores, warehouses, as well as on public transport,” said Harsh Chitale, Leader of Signify’s Digital Solutions Division.
Part of the range are UV-C fixtures which are well suited for the deep disinfection of surfaces in offices, schools and restrooms. They are equipped with sensors and controls to ensure that they only operate when people and animals aren’t present. Other products include mobile, freestanding UV-C luminaires that can be wheeled into a hotel room or used to disinfect surfaces on public transport such as buses and trains.
For the disinfection of objects, Signify has launched a range of safe and quick-to-use UV-C disinfection chambers. These chambers are used in offices and municipal buildings to disinfect visitor tags, phones, bags, laptops and wallets in a matter of seconds. In stores they’re well suited for disinfecting returned items, glasses or clothes tried on in a changing room.
