Acuity Brands to Use Ushio’s Far-UVC Light for Human-safe Indoor Disinfecting Lighting

The two companies entered into an alliance agreement that Ushio will supply Acuity Brands with its Care222® UV disinfection module, which generate far-UVC light which is safe to human skin but capable of inactivating viruses and bacteria on indoor surfaces. Under the agreement, Acuity Brands will have an exclusive right to use Ushio’s far-UVC disinfecting module for general illumination uses throughout North America and non-exclusive right for the worldwide market outside of Asia. Acuity Brands plans to incorporate these lamps in a range of its products, including its ceiling and wall-mounted lighting fixtures that can operate in occupied or unoccupied spaces, to reduce pathogens. The mercury-free Care222 excimer lamps produced by Ushio can filter out the longer UV wavelengths that are harmful to humans from the lamp. The result is a narrow band 222nm wavelength of UV light that can inactivate viruses and bacteria, effectively preventing them from replicating. https://www.ledinside.com/news/2020/6/ushio_acuity_brand
