We all know the importance of eliminating bacteria, mold, fungi and viruses. Hospitals, sports arenas, day cares and airports spend thousands of dollars trying to keep germs, and the infections they cause, at bay.
The Covid-19 pandemic events of 2020/2021 have shined even more of a light on how diseases can impact our lives in such a drastic way.
With the cost of treating illnesses caused by bacterial or viral infections on the rise, reducing the growth of germs that cause them has become a top priority. It’s clear that our current procedures, including the intermittent use of chemical sprays and wipes, aren’t enough. We need additional tools. And that’s where the continuous antimicrobial power of our pūr-led™ line with Vyv (formally Vital Vio) can be put to work.
THE SCIENCE OF PŪR-LED™ WITH VYV’S WHITE LIGHT ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY
Vyv’s antimicrobial technology emits a spectrum of light that damages multiple cell structures within microorganisms. This results in the death of the bacterial cell, without causing any harm to the people, pets and plants in the room.
In addition to all the efficacy testing Vyv has done to date on microbes like bacteria, mold, yeast, and fungi, Vyv has recently received results validating the efficacy of the technology against viruses. This testing was performed on both non-enveloped and enveloped viruses and included testing on SARS-CoV-2 specifically. In addition to Vyv’s testing results, completed by independent labs, there have been recent academic studies confirming efficacy of 405 nm light (the wavelengths Vyv uses in its products) on enveloped viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza A.
This light touches the surfaces of a room – the same ones we do, — providing us with illumination, while working to create an inhospitable environment that prevents the growth of bacteria or microbes.
Unlike UV light, Vyv’s Antimicrobial White Light harnesses light in the 400-405nm range which is approved for continuous use for multi-cellular organisms.
The International Electrotechnical Commission – the international standards organization that prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies – has certified, as administered by Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL), that pūr-led products with Vyv are for continuous and unrestricted use around people, pets and plants.
And because it’s as easy as flipping a switch, using pūr-led with Vyv’s Antimicrobial White Light doesn’t interrupt the daily activities of a space. No longer do hospitals have to wait for routine cleaning times, or restaurants have to wait for patrons to leave, to begin disinfecting the space. The continuous nature of these lights also removes the human error in cleaning, ensuring effective antimicrobial action around the clock.
PMC LIGHTING WITH VYV
The natural and powerful fit of PMC Lighting’s Build-2-Spec philosophy and Vyv’s antimicrobial white light meets PMC’s commitment to delivering on 3 basic principles:
INNOVATION: Working With You To Create a Build-2-Spec luminaire that will be attractive while also saving energy and delivering the antimicrobial power of Vyv.
INTEGRATION: Modifying Standard Products to meet the requirements of the specific Vyv application or aesthetic preferences.
INSPIRATION: A preferred color scheme or consistent branding in a particular space can be achieved in businesses wishing to utilize Vyv.
PMC LIGHTING WITH VYV
PMC’s Build-2-Spec focus means that you will receive a precisely engineered luminaire that meets your space needs. In an existing structure, this means a space where a standard fixture will not fit can have the protection and benefit of infection control. It will allow customization of space.
In a new structure or renovated building, you will not sacrifice design and style for the utility of infection reduction by Vital Vio.
This Build-2-Spec ability to customize by PMC Lighting proves a natural fit for those looking to combine form and function.
PŪR-LED™ WITH VYV
pūr-led™ luminaries will join clean, modern, and stylish looks with Vyv’s Antimicrobial White Light Technology. Whether you have a unique space that needs a Build-2-Spec fixture, or you have a more standard space that one of our ready-to-install fixture options will work in, you will achieve the perfect blend of design form and antimicrobial function for any room or structure.
