Germicidal Ultraviolet LED Leader Luminii Improving IAQ


CHICAGO—Luminii, a leader in the germicidal ultraviolet (GUV) LED lighting space, announced that it is helping businesses including gyms, restaurants, medical offices and daycares around the country.

With more than a decade of architectural LED product innovation, Luminii’s germicidal upper air system called Purifii is a contact-free, low-profile GUV product that kills the COVID-19 virus as well as other airborne viruses and bacteria that may be circulating in high-traffic indoor spaces.

Since February 28, when Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot rescinded the city’s indoor mask mandate, some Chicago businesses welcomed customers back to restaurants, gyms, and retail establishments with extra risk mitigation layers designed to protect air quality and kill airborne viruses. In facilities such as health clubs, restaurants, and daycares, business owners offered customers peace of mind with germicidal ultraviolet lighting solutions such as the AER W Low-Profile Germicidal Upper Air System, a system that supports disinfection in the air in a matter of minutes.

Throughout the U.S., more than 20 percent of gyms and fitness centers have permanently closed since the beginning of the pandemic, according to a report by IHRSA, a global health and fitness trade association. The ability to improve air quality for gym patrons is helping some gym owners attract customers back to regular workouts.

Better Protected from Bacteria, Viruses

“People are eager to join gyms and focus on their health again, but they’ve been caught in a Catch-22 because they find it difficult to work out in a mask, yet they also haven’t been ready to remove masks in the gym and go back to normal,” said Misho Ceko, owner of Chicago Mixed Martial Arts and SoNo Fitness, both in Lincoln Park. “A product like Purifii is a science-backed way to address that concern. It gives members peace of mind that they’ll be better protected not just from COVID-19 but also from other airborne bacteria and viruses, including the flu and colds.”

“After two years of living through a global pandemic, businesses are in a fight for their survival while customers want assurances that the places they patronize are looking out for their safety,” said Amy Bonder, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Luminii. “Purifii gives us all a way to socialize and interact with one another without worry—and puts business and cities on a faster road to full economic recovery.”

Purifii is germicidal ultraviolet lighting backed by science and developed by engineers with a passion for air quality and public health. PURIFII GUV lights are safe, discreet, and easy to install and maintain for any space, providing a noninvasive customer experience.
