Meet Purifii™ by Luminii. A meticulously engineered GUV platform shown to be 99.98%, effective in eliminating the SARS-CoV-2 virus.12 Combining architectural product design and optical expertise, Purifii promotes wellness where health and safety are the highest priority.

Niles, Ill.—Luminii, a Chicago-based manufacturer of industry-leading specification-grade architectural LED lighting systems, today announced the launch and availability of the company’s architectural-grade germicidal lighting platform of products and systems branded PURIFII. These LED GUV systems enable the company to capitalize on the scientifically proven ability of UV-C to inactivate pathogens in the air and on surfaces continuously and safely with the goal of supporting health and renewed productivity in highly active, indoor environments.

PURIFII AER W Low-Profile Germicidal Upper Air System

AER W is Luminii’s mercury-free, always-on, contactless, GUV upper air system. Designed for occupied spaces, AER W has been lab tested and verified the percent reduction of SARS-CoV-2 virus in the upper air is 99.98% within 10 minutes.1 It features a streamlined linear profile expertly engineered to support the inactivation of airborne pathogens in high-traffic, indoor environments safely, quickly, and discreetly. Purifii’s AER W systems emit an uninterrupted plane of UV-C light continuously, disinfecting the upper air in just minutes, eliminating viruses and other airborne pathogens that would otherwise circulate within businesses and to the people within them.

AER W incorporates a recessed LED UV source and convective design as well as no moving parts. AER W  is  protected from environmental dirt and dust particles to ensure maximum performance and operates silently. In addition, the AER W features either an integrated or remote power supply.

PURIFII SURFACE Low-Profile Surface Disinfection System

PURIFII SURFACE is Luminii’s GUV LED surface disinfection product line available starting in Q2. Featuring a discreet linear profile engineered to blend into interior surface areas, SURFACE has been lab tested and its single driver configuration verified to inactivate 99.96% of surface SARS-CoV-2 in as little as one minute.2  The double driver achieved 99.99% reduction in the same time frame. 2  SURFACE system aids in the disinfection of surface pathogens in unoccupied environments supporting the elimination of viruses, bacteria, mold spores, and fungi.

SURFACE can be scaled up or down depending on the space and works in conjunction with the PURIFII control system using multiple and fully redundant safeguards to support the safe use of the GUV system when in use.

The PURIFII SURFACE germicidal GUV System supports businesses’ existing cleaning protocols and features field adjustability, allowing disinfecting power to be highly targeted even after installation. The SURFACE product line is also wet-rated, making it an ideal solution for installations that have direct exposure to water.

“Both PURIFII AER and SURFACE GUV systems were designed to support disinfection in the air and on surfaces quickly and safely, while architecturally blending into interiors with little to no disruption,” said Jeff Parker, Luminii’s CEO. “As practitioners of light, we took special care when crafting the PURIFII platform, creating delicate details, incorporating our optics expertise, and conducting thoughtful and meticulous research throughout the entire process to bring state-of-the-art GUV products to the market.”

Germicidal Lighting Applications Supported by Science

Developed by engineers and scientists with a passion for light, Luminii’s GUV systems incorporate market proven UV-C technology, underscored by advanced third-party testing to ensure PURIFII GUV products are safe and effective in both occupied and unoccupied spaces.12  Luminii’s dedication to product research results in enhanced product knowledge: the PURIFII products have demonstrated strong results in inactivating the SARS-CoV-2 virus on surfaces and in the air.

PURIFII always-on LED GUV systems are also environmentally friendly, helping get businesses, retailers, schools, and public spaces back to the business of living, with additional added benefits, including: no mercury or chemical substance exposure, energy cost savings, less reliance on toxic chemical cleaning, and a touchless system giving people peace of mind in the spaces they occupy.

We’ve engaged with well-known experts in the field to consult on the science of UV-C disinfection, supporting our own internal research and independent lab testing,” said Mason Barker, Vice President of Product Development for Luminii. “Taking a holistic and scientifically-backed approach to develop the Purifii GUV product line has truly helped us create a groundbreaking product portfolio that seamlessly integrates into the built environment.”
