Design Criteria for UV Light Disinfection Usage and Operation in Commercial and Public Buildings

Join us to discuss the research around UV light technology and how it can be effective at inactivating pathogens in commercial and public buildings…but is it a viable solution? Properly applied, UV light disinfection can reduce the amount of chemicals needed for disinfection purposes and reduce active pathogens in spaces.

The webinar will investigate the application design parameters and the specific technologies to consider that will enable a holistic approach to designing a UV light disinfection system that works in high-occupancy and public spaces for occupants and provides building owners and facility managers with and effective science-based solution with actual operational guidelines.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how UV can be used for disinfection.
  • Understand the three different types of UV light disinfection technology.
  • See which disinfection strategies can be used in occupied spaces.
  • Explore the regulations that must be followed with a UV installation.

**All references to “disinfection” are referring generally to the reduction of pathogenic bioburden and are not intended to refer to any specific definition of the term as may be used for other purposes by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The disinfection technology as incorporated in Acuity Brands products is not for use as or for medical devices. Reduction of the pathogenic bioburden is a function of fixture run time, distance to the UV light source, airflow, room size and/or other factors, and the level of reduction will vary within a specific space.
