Italian lighting brand Artemide has developed a way of turning its lamps into room sanitizers that emit antiviral ultraviolet light. The selected frequencies of visible light inhibit the development and growth of bacteria, fungi and mold. UV acts on pathogenic microorganisms, including viruses.
The combination of different technologies and the gradation of the light emission spectra is able to enhance the efficacy of the sanitizing action while performing in full respect of people’s safety and without causing damage to the materials normally present in the room, thanks to the intelligences it incorporates.
Integralis operates according to a parametric approach that offers a scientific and measured answer. It works on the concept of “dose”; they, in fact, adapt the intensity of the sanitizing action according to the rhythm of permanence and absence of people in the spaces, to the type of environments and to the objective of the intervention.
Different methods of disinfection can be applied individually or integrated with each other by combining the relationship between technologies, powers, times and results.
In spaces where the presence of people is constant during the day but interrupted in the evening, such as in offices or shops, museum and educational spaces, disinfection with maximum radiation intensity and without occupancy can be carried out during the night.
In the same space, during the day, it is possible to opt for a non-offensive emission of sanitization maintenance thanks to the special spectral component of the patented Integralis technology. This approach offers a perfect functional white light which, at the same time, is active against bacteria.
In spaces with a limited perimeter such as service areas, elevators, toilets, dressing rooms, halls and waiting rooms, where the permanence of people is temporary, you can choose a punctual “intermittent” sanitization.
This method is activated and deactivated through presence sensors, acting only in people absence with greater intensity and in less time in order to guarantee the safety and sanitization of the space for each user.
Thanks to Artemide App, it is possible to activate the different real-time sanitization modes or recall preset scenarios. Artemide App allows the control of the various interacting technologies such as presence sensors. This control is essential for the use of Inetegralis in complete safety, avoiding the photobiological risk in the presence of man.
