The current pandemic has forced the residential and hospitality industries to react and find innovative solutions that protect people ensuring higher level of disinfection and sterilization. It is not all about being efficient, but also being prepared for any future infectious event. Innovative technologies can help in the short term while offering a mine of powerful solutions for the months and years to come.
One such technology is the UV disinfection system that emit short-wavelength UV radiations to destroy or effectively inactivate microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew, volatile organic compounds and many harmful airborne or aquatic pathogenic agents. UV sterilization is usually performed through light-emitting diodes (LEDs), lamps and bulbs and has been used for decades in the disinfection of surfaces, food and beverage, air conditioning ducts and water treatment plants.
A leader in the manufacture of lighting and furniture for luxury hotels and contract spaces, GARCIA REQUEJO has put to good use its 58-year experience in the industry by adapting UVC lighting technology to daily life making it more affordable and flexible for everyday use. Launched in 2020, the new GERMILED lamps uses UVC light to eradicate pathogens and provide disinfection and sterilization for high contact areas.
As it is impossible and time-consuming to sterilize all surfaces with conventional disinfection systems, GERMILED can turn into an essential tool in the cleaning processes. It can be applied to many environments, including hospitals and other healthcare facilities, offices and workspaces, schools and universities, hotels, bars and restaurants, retails, supermarkets, playing areas and even at home.
Considering the future of travel and accommodation and the search for higher levels of safety, the GERMILED lamps also prove a powerful ally in the sterilization of hotel facilities providing a real solution for containing the growth of bacteria, molds and fungi and avoiding the higher cost of disinfection by hand.
A series of studies and tests carried out by independent laboratories have demonstrated that germicidal lamps have an efficacy of 99.9% in destroying viruses, fungi and bacteria. Type of tests include wavelength and photometry tests as well as some microbiological investigations for the eradication of microorganisms.
The innovation and the germicidal properties of the GERMILED lighting products has been recognized by prestigious awards and institutions. In 2021, the N-27 DUO LIGHT germicidal lamp has received two IDA Awards : the Silver Award in the Industrial And Life Science Design / Safety Designs category, and the Bronze Award in the Lighting / Special Purpose Lighting category. In 2021, the 60X60 DUO ceiling lamp, designed by Natalia Guzman Cortés, has been awarded the 2021 Honorable Mention Prize by the European Product Design Award in the category Design for Society.
