According to Hubbell Lighting, a world leader in lighting innovation, announced today it has launched a series of ultraviolet (“UVC”) germicidal lighting solutions for the commercial lighting marketplace. 

What is it? 

SpectraClean 254  features a series of luminaires that leverage developments in the disciplines of lighting science and microbiology to combine white and ultraviolet 254 nm light to meet ambient and task lighting requirements while providing a continuous, unobtrusive disinfection option for commercial applications. 

Why is it Important? 

SpectraClean 254 targets the inactivation of airborne viruses, such as SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) and influenza, with UVC lighting. 

SpectraClean 254 has been designed to provide sequenced environmental disinfection. Its effectiveness can be adjusted by increasing the dosage time, delivered power, or reducing the distance between the source and the pathogen. 

What are the Applications? 

Upper air disinfection luminaires create a germicidal zone away from occupants and sensitive materials. Standard building climate control systems move airborne pathogens from the lower part of a room into this germicidal zone. The pathogen inactivation occurs through the cumulative exposure to UVC over time and each exposure cycle inactivates pathogens until the concentration in the room is effectively diluted. 

The SpectraClean luminaires are compatible with most standard control devices and require no special equipment, knowledge, or skill for an electrical contractor to install.
