United Safety & Survivability Corporation is partnering with GE Current, a Daintree company, to provide LED UV disinfection technology for public transportation vehicles.
The new patented disinfection UV lighting technology can help to disinfect air and surfaces in occupied spaces with the potential expansion into commercial and emergency vehicular applications in public transportation, including but not limited to public buses, locomotives and rail, and school buses, as well as first responder fire trucks and ambulances. Additional testing of 365DisInFx UV technology in these specific applications is underway with results anticipated in the coming months.
“We continue to look for innovative technologies that we can bring into the United Safety portfolio that align with the vision and mission of our organization to keep people safe and healthy” said Joseph Mirabile, president and CEO of United Safety and Survivability Corporation. “This partnership with GE Current, a Daintree company for 365DisInFx™ UV technology broadens our product offerings to fit the needs of our customers in this new world. Our goal is to bring mobility back to society and this product is an additional solution in helping our customers and the public do just that.”
The 365DisInFx™ UVC LPU device is a non-white light product which helps in inactivation of airborne viruses in occupied spaces and this easy to install device is similar in size to a traditional smoke detector (5-inches in diameter by 1.2-inches in height). The 365DisInFx™ UVA luminaires provide both white-light for general illumination along with integrated UVA technology for the inactivation of bacteria on surfaces while having no impact on the quality of the white-light provided through the fixture.
The 365DisInFx™ UV technology uses LEDs to help reduce the potential spread of certain common infection-causing pathogens. This allows for continuous disinfection in spaces while occupants are present. The UV light emitted from these fixtures is invisible to the human eye. When installed and used as directed, fixtures incorporating this disinfection technology are designed to meet IEC 62471 Photobiological Safety for Lamps and Lamp Systems standard and American Conference of American Hygienists (ACGIH®) TLVs® guidelines.
365DisInFX™ UVC and UVA technology delivers UV light in specific dosages and wavelengths for the purpose of inactivating common pathogens over time. Additional testing is underway to further understand the effectiveness of the product on SARS-Cov-2, which is known to cause COVID-19.
