GLO Upper Air UV Fixture Product Support
UV Resources provides the following support pages and downloadable assets for this product:
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. The CDC finds that “a properly designed and maintained upper room UVGI system may be effective in killing or inactivating TB bacteria.”
Independent studies and specialized applications have proven upper air treatment methods to be quite 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 an intense zone of UVGI in the upper air while minimizing the dosage in the lower (occupied) portion of the room or area.
