Islamabad, November 17, 2020 (PPI-OT): Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, is accelerating the adoption of UV-C disinfection lighting with new luminaires and equipment for the professional market in Pakistan. UV-C lighting is effective in disinfecting air, surfaces, and objects, adding an extra layer of safety for people in homes, schools, food outlets, retail, industry, offices, and public transportation.

Professional customers in Pakistan can now order Philips UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires to disinfect air, Philips UV-C disinfection battens and Philips UV-C disinfection trolleys to disinfect surfaces, and Philips UV-C disinfection chambers to disinfect objects. The UV-C disinfection batten can be used with a control system that contains the appropriate safeguards like the Philips Dynalite PDUVCC control system for UV-C disinfection battens.
Signify is helping by contributing with an extra layer of safety in a world where organizations are seeking ways to continue operations and provide services to customers. “Now more than ever, disinfecting air, surfaces and objects is critical,” said Asad S. Jafar, Country Leader at Signify Pakistan. “To support offices, schools, public transportation, retail outlets and many businesses as they strive to disinfect their spaces, we’ve leveraged our knowledge and experience in UV-C lighting, making multiple product ranges available for professionals.”
Tailor-made solutions can be developed with the customer for example for use in airports and hotels for luggage disinfection, packages, and deliveries in (office) buildings, or for disinfection of larger objects such as shopping carts.
The following products are now available in Pakistan and can be applied in many applications ranging from shopping trolleys at local retailers to corridors and rooms in schools, hotels or offices, and from kitchens at restaurants to surfaces in trains, planes and buses.
Air disinfection solutions
Philips UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires: Signify offers wall-mounted and ceiling-mounted UV-C luminaires to disinfect the air.

The UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires can continuously disinfect the air. These luminaires are ideal for use in elderly homes, offices, retail, food outlets, hospitality, schools, banking, cinemas, theaters, opera houses, gyms, washrooms, hospital waiting areas and other high-contact areas.

Suitable for pharmacies, hotel rooms, schools, universities, banks, retail outlets, gyms, elderly homes, barber shops, health spas, washing rooms, and industrial sites.

Integrated safeguard controls include a timer to plan disinfection for a predefined period, remote control, and voice alarm. Additional containment safeguards (such as user manual and mounting instruction) should be deployed together with the UV-C trolley in order to ensure that no people or animals are exposed to the UV-C rays. The trolley for professional surface disinfection is ideal for retail outlets, schools, universities, offices, banks, barber shops, spas, hotel guest rooms, industrial sites, restaurants, hospitals, industrial kitchens and on buses and trains.

UV-C breaks down the DNA and/or RNA of micro-organisms, including viruses and bacteria, rendering them harmless. Signify’s UV-C lamps emit a radiation peak at 254 nm which is near the germicidal efficiency peak and therefore ideal for disinfecting air, surfaces, and objects.
UV-C lighting is well-proven and trusted as an effective disinfectant. Signify’s UV-C light sources’ efficacy in disinfecting SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, was recently validated in a laboratory test by Boston University, which showed that Signify’s UV-C light sources inactivate SARS-CoV-2 in a matter of seconds.
UV-C light should always be used by professionals in accordance with the safety requirements and instructions to avoid humans and animals from being exposed to it since it can damage their skin and eyes.
For more than 35 years, Signify has been at the forefront of UV technology, and has a proven track record of innovation in UV-C lighting. Signify’s UV-C lighting is designed, installed, and used according to the product-specific safety instructions, and manufactured using well-controlled industrial processes.
