Lahore (Muhammad Yasir) Signify (Euronext: LIGHT): The world leader in lighting, Signify, is introducing new UV-C disinfection luminaires and equipment in Pakistan. With the scientifically proven impact of Signify’s UV-C lighting on the inactivation of SARS-COV-2, these light sources act as strong air, surface, and object disinfectants that can play an important role in a broad range of applications such as schools, offices, retail outlets, banks, fitness centers, hospitality, the food industry, warehouses and distribution centers and other high-contact areas.
Signify’s UV-C lighting is well-proven and trusted as an effective disinfectant. This was recently 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.
The products are designed with a range of safeguards, including a timer option to delay operation until after people and animals are no longer in the vicinity and a sensor that automatically switches the luminaires off if a person or an animal is detected. The solutions, currently available in Pakistan’s market are air disinfection solutions which include germicidal, indirect upper-air UV luminaires; surface disinfection solutions which include germicidal, direct UV luminaires; and object disinfection solutions which include UV-C disinfection chambers.
Signify is helping keep people safe where organizations are seeking ways to continue operations and provide services in a safe environment. “Now more than ever before, disinfecting air, surfaces and objects is critical,” said Asad S. Jafar, Chairman and CEO Signify Pakistan. “To support offices, schools, public transportation, retail outlets and many businesses as they strive to realize a virus-free environment, we’ve leveraged our knowledge and experience in water, air and surface treatment through UV-C lighting, making multiple product ranges available for Pakistan market.”
Signify has been at the forefront of UV technology for more than 35 years, and has a proven track record of innovation in UV-C lighting. Its UV-C lighting is designed, installed, and used according to the product-specific safety instructions, and is manufactured using well-controlled industrial processes.
UV-C light should always be used by professionals in accordance with safety requirements and instructions to avoid exposure since it can damage the skin and eyes.
