April 2, 2020 (Kenosha, Wisconsin) – In response to the urgent need for lighting in temporary hospitals, Kenall introduces the KRT Series, a portable, durable luminaire using Indigo-Clean Technology. These unique lighting fixtures provide generous ambient light while safely and continuously killing harmful bacteria, bolstering existing cleaning and infection prevention protocols, and reducing harmful bacteria when used as recommended.

The KRT Series mounts quickly and easily using exterior mounting brackets and a 12-foot cord and plug to accommodate tie wrap and chain installation, or the fixture can be hard wired for daisy chain configurations. In order to accommodate the pressing need for lighting in temporary facilities, it is available as a Fast Track item – meaning it ships from our U.S. facility in just 5 business days from the time of order.

Indigo-Clean Technology is a combination of white ambient light and a narrow 405 nanometer light. It safely kills harmful pathogens in the environment; in the air, and on hard and soft surfaces. Indigo-Clean Technology is independently lab-tested and proven to kill staph* such as MRSA**, as well as ESKAPE pathogens. 24/7 operation is recommended for optimal disinfection.
