Technology to purify air and monitor vital building data

In our changing world, finding solutions to keeping people safe indoors has never been more important. These solutions must be safe and functional to cater for a diverse range of applications and indoor spaces.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the danger of airborne transmission of respiratory viruses.

UV-C disinfection technology combined with HEPA filters and live monitoring of air quality for air purification is a great option for many buildings. From government organisations to schools, this solution is based on inactivating harmful pathogens and bacteria while remaining affordable, environmentally friendly, and safe.

UV-C technology combined with HEPA filters can help to keep high-occupancy and vulnerable areas safer, without causing adverse effects that other options may trigger.

This method of inactivating pathogens and bacteria means that people can feel safe knowing there is a reduced chance of becoming sick by simply breathing in the air.

This is why the Pierlite innovation team spent over 12 months developing a solution that combines various powerful technologies in a safe manner – contributing to the improvement of the health and wellbeing of adults and children around Australia.

Aether LED Troffer

HEPA filter with UV-C LED

The Product:
The Pierlite Aether LED Troffer with a HEPA Filter and UVC LED will illuminate the space beautifully and also provide exceptional air disinfection technology by using a sophisticated filtration system.

The medical grade HEPA filter with Germagic technology reduces airborne contaminants. The air is circulated through the sealed UVC LED Light enclosure which inactivates bacteria and viruses by disrupting the DNA and RNA genetic material in the virus, which prevents it from reproducing. The fan outlet releases air that has had 99,995% of pathogens inactivated. There is no direct UVC exposure to the room environment.

The Difference: 
In comparison to traditional UV disinfection technologies using mercury based lamps, Pierlite applies an innovative and modern approach using LED based UVC technology in lighting. UVC LEDs do not contain hazardous material and they are small in size.

Given the many pathogens in our environment, Pierlite offers an innovative solution to deliver air treatment capability with UVC treatment and HEPA filter.
