The Light Side in the Fight Against Germs: Four Things To Know About UV Disinfectant Systems

The current COVID-19 crisis has made it more important than ever to keep the spaces we share clean.?

Without regular, effective disinfection, viruses and bacteria can remain viable on surfaces for hours or even days.

In a 2018 study on influenza transmission, researchers observed 39 graduate students sharing a standard-sized office. Over 5 days, the students touched surfaces in the room – like backpacks, chairs and shared computers – more than 127,000 times.

To combat the spread of disease, many of your customers have likely put disinfection protocols into place that involve harsh chemicals and hours of costly work from cleaning crews, and are trying to minimize the disruption to workflow.

Contractors may be able to offer an additional option.

Ultraviolet (UV) light has been used as a disinfectant for decades, and two new systems from Cooper Lighting Solutions and GE Current adapt this technology for use in a variety of spaces.?

How does disinfectant lighting work?

Certain wavelengths of UV light have been shown in the lab to break down the genetic material in certain bacteria, viruses and/or spores, preventing them from causing disease or multiplying. Disinfectant lighting systems harness this power to provide either periodic or continuous disinfection of air and surfaces.

Recessed luminaires blend seamlessly into hospital and hospitality spaces, while high-bay fixtures can cover larger areas like gyms or distribution centers.

How well does it work?

When Boston University researchers tested the light sources in Cooper Lighting Solutions’ germicidal UV (GUV) system against the SARS-CoV-2 virus – the virus that causes COVID-19 – they were able to inactivate 99% of the virus on a surface in six seconds. (This data was made available to Cooper Lighting by the National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) at Boston University, and is pending publication.)

More broadly, Cooper reports that its system can eliminate 99.99% of pathogens, and disinfect a typical room in under 20 minutes.

GE Current’s 365DisInFx? lighting system has not been proven effective against the novel coronavirus, but reduced common pathogens by up to 99.7% over an eight-hour period during lab testing.

However, it’s important to note that UV lighting only sanitizes visible surfaces and can’t reach any shadowed part of a room or scrub away dirt. For this reason, FDA guidelines recommend it be used as a supplement to other disinfection processes.

What are the differences between the 365DisInFx? and GUV disinfectant lighting systems?

There are two key differences between GE Current’s and Cooper Lighting’s systems: the type of UV light they use, and the timing of exposure in a space.

The 365DisInFx? system uses the UVA portion of the ultraviolet spectrum, offering a lower intensity of irradiance over a longer period of time to provide continuous disinfection over an eight-hour workday. It’s a good fit for healthcare facilities and other occupied environments that face a high risk of transmission for common pathogens, and require frequent disinfection that won’t interrupt workflow.

The 365DisInFx? system uses standalone fixtures that can also provide ambient white lighting in a room while applying UV lighting to surfaces, allowing for one fixture to satisfy both everyday lighting and disinfection needs.

Cooper Lighting Solutions’ GUV system, meanwhile, uses a lower-wavelength portion of the spectrum located in the UV-C range to rapidly disinfect vacant spaces. It represents a second system installed independently of a building’s lighting, and can’t be used with people present. Imagine automatically disinfecting food prep spaces, gymnasiums or restrooms outside of business hours, or creating a quick sanitization area to corral grocery store carts between uses.?

Is disinfectant lighting safe?

As anyone who has spent too long in the sun knows, exposure to UV light can be harmful without proper protection.?

Disinfection lighting is safe when used and installed properly – which is why it’s important that customers purchase a system from a trusted manufacturer, and work with an experienced, qualified installer. Contractors have an opportunity to lead the charge and work with their local Graybar sales representative to find the solution that best fits their customer’s needs.

Since exposure to high-intensity UV-C light can damage skin and eyes, Cooper’s GUV system contains safeguards, including controls to turn off fixtures if someone enters the area. Additionally, since UV light is invisible to the eye, a blue tint was added to the light sources to make them visible when on. The system is UL1598 Safety Certified.

The 365DisInFx? system, meanwhile, uses lower-intensity UVA light and moderates exposure over time to ensure safety, following IEC 62471 Standards for skin and eye exposure hazards. At most, the system is designed to expose someone to the equivalent of three minutes of direct sunlight over a typical workday.?

Ultimately, the right disinfection solution varies with the use and requirements of a space – and UV lighting could be a missing piece of the puzzle.
