Memphis, Tennessee April 28, 2022 –(PR.com)– Lumalier, an Evergreen UV brand, is pleased to announce that the company’s UVC Germicidal Products (GUVC) are now installed and operational at Reagan National Airport and Dulles International Airport, which are operated by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. “The pandemic has created heightened awareness of the air we breathe in buildings,” shares Jim Crunk, Managing Director, Evergreen UV/Lumalier. “The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has deployed UVC technology as part of its health and safety response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Airports have their own unique challenges in mitigating the spread of viruses and bacteria due to the high concentration of people and wide range of geographic locations served. The products installed in airports relate to air disinfection and are part of a holistic approach to improving indoor air quality (IAQ). This includes proper disinfection, ventilation and air filtration to help reduce the amount of airborne virus, reducing the risk of spread. Germicidal UVC (GUVC), also known as UVGI, is a proven air disinfection technology and mitigation strategy recommended by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) , the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and is also included as an air disinfection method in an article published by the House Office of Science and Technology Policy White (OSTP).

Lumalier’s 2×2 series and wall mounted luminaires at altitude were installed by the Airport Authority team in several spaces at both airports, including the passenger waiting areas near the gates. Both airport facilities have also installed UVC light fixtures in their air handlers to treat the air as it moves through the HVAC system.

“In addition to the benefit of inactivating airborne pathogens such as viruses and bacteria, we believe that the use of high-altitude luminaires, which are visible in airport spaces, will bring peace of mind to travelers in the busiest areas where people congregate,” shares Derrick Sears, Business Development Manager, Evergreen UV/Lumalier.

“These germicidal UVC systems will also help airports mitigate the risk of spreading more common viruses, such as influenza,” shares David Skelton, president of Evergreen UV/Lumalier. “Additionally, UVC fixtures integrated into the AHU have the added benefit of improving HVAC efficiency, which can lead to significant energy savings.”
