A Continuous Environmental Disinfection System to Kill Bacteria, Influenza, and SARS-CoV-2*
(Union City, CA) May, 2020 – Finelite, Inc., a leader in energy-efficient lighting for offices, healthcare, and educational facilities, is pleased to announce that Finelite has licensed Kenall Manufacturing’s Indigo-Clean Technology patents.
Jane White, President of Finelite, stated, “Finelite is pleased to bring disinfection lighting solutions to our customers. We are committed to creating healthier, safer environments that will better the lives of the occupants in those spaces. This is a critical moment where we can add a tremendous amount of confidence to our customers by leveraging Kenall’s Indigo-Clean Technology.”
Indigo-Clean is a lighting technology that lights the space and also provides continuous environmental disinfection using visible light technology. This technology is proven to be effective by recently conducted independent lab testing to kill bacteria, Influenza-A, and SARS-CoV-2* – the virus that causes COVID-19. The first set of Finelite fixtures to integrate Indigo-Clean Technology will be HP-2, HP-4, HP-6 and HPR. These Finelite luminaires will integrate Single-Mode Indigo-Clean Technology which employs blended white + 405nm visible light, exclusively, to disinfect the space. When the light is on, disinfection is active. Indigo-Clean Technology contains no UV and is certified safe for room occupants and materials.
“Kenall is thrilled to have Finelite integrate Indigo-Clean Technology into much of their product portfolio,” said Patrick Marry, President of Kenall. “Indigo-Clean Technology is a unique, disinfection technology that can be used across a wide variety of applications.”
Finelite will immediately be offering Indigo-Clean Technology in a variety of color temperatures; ideal for Healthcare, Commercial, Education, Retail, Transportation and other applications where people congregate.
