The system is a cost-effective and efficient solution to meet the safety and sanitary needs of today’s challenging environment.”

With its patent-pending design, independent Intertek Labs USA verified test results proving up to 99.9% disinfection of virus and bacteria and its 300w 60,000+ hour UVC induction lamp, investing in a UVC PureLight 360 is the smart choice for medical offices or other industries looking to provide safe spaces. The disinfection system features user-friendly manual and wireless controls, a durable design, multiple safety features, the longest-lasting bulbs on the market and a maximum output precisely calculated and proven to be effective against virulent pathogens so it’s tough on bacteria and viruses, and there are no odors or chemical residues left behind.
