The UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires can continuously disinfect the air. These luminaires are ideal for use in elderly homes, office  spaces like visitor lounges ,meeting/conference rooms, collaboration and breakout spaces , retail, food outlets, hospitality, schools, banking, cinemas, theaters, opera houses, gyms,  washrooms, hospital waiting areas and other high-contact areas.

Integrated safeguard controls include a timer to plan disinfection for a predefined period, remote  control, and voice alarm.

Product Safety

UV-C lighting is well-proven and trusted as an effective disinfectant. Signify’s UV-C light sources’  efficacy in disinfecting SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, was recently validated in a laboratory test by Boston University, which showed that Signify’s UV-C light sources inactivate SARSCoV-2 in a matter of seconds. 

UV-C light should always be used by professionals in accordance with the safety requirements and  instructions to avoid humans and animals from being exposed to it since it can damage their skin and eyes.

Signify’s UV-C lighting is designed and manufactured using wellestablished industrial processes. Our product-specific instructions also guide users towards safe installation and operation. 

Signify is continuously working on sharing expertise and spreading awareness with relevant  stakeholders in Singapore on all aspects of Signify's UV-C product design and safety, as well as the effectiveness of UV-C technology against the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
