The High-Output GLO Upper Air Germicidal UV Fixture from UV Resources provides a high 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 percent more irradiance than conventional upper air UV systems. This increase in irradiance levels translates to more 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 anywhere there is a threat of infectious diseases.

The GLO Upper Air Germicidal UV Fixture can be used in surgical suites, emergency room waiting areas, patient rooms, as well as homeless shelters, jails and prisons.

TRIPLE THE UV-C OUTPUT
The GLO Upper Air UV Fixture is able to yield increased levels of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) through its computer designed, high spectral Alanod aluminum reflector that helps to reduce internal UV energy losses. Because of its reflection system, the UV fixture also offers a 170-degree horizontal angle of irradiance.

The GLO fixture is pending UL approval and offers a three-year fixture and one-year lamp warranty.

HOW IT WORKS
Upper air UV systems have been used to control airborne infectious diseases since the 1940s, but their use waned during the arrival and proliferation of antibiotics in the 1950s. Demand for the technology increased following a resurgence of drug resistant infectious microorganisms, including tuberculosis, which requires additional infection control measures.

Independent studies and specialized applications have proven upper air treatment methods to be effective in inactivating all forms of infectious agents. Typically installed on a wall at a height above seven-feet, the UV fixture employs louvers to direct the radiation upward and outward to create a zone of UVGI in the upper air while minimizing the dosage in the lower (occupied) portion of the room or area.

UV Resources has expanded its UV-C product offering to address emerging infection control applications with the new upper air UV fixture.
