According to UV Resources, its new High-Output GLO™ Upper Air Germicidal UV Fixture provides the greatest amount of Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) energy fluence, or dosage, without the use of additional power, heat or special UV lamps. The patent-pending GLO fixture, which stands for Germicidal Light Overhead, delivers up to 350% more irradiance than conventional upper air UV systems. This increase in irradiance levels translates to greater UV-C coverage, enabling infection control specialists to treat more area with fewer fixtures, saving both cost and energy.
The wall-mounted unit can be installed anywhere to destroy airborne viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. Frequently used to mitigate the risk of nosocomial infections in health care settings — including surgical suites, emergency room waiting areas, patient rooms, as well as homeless shelters, jails, and prisons — the upper air UV fixture is ideal for any space where there is a threat of infectious diseases.
