Amerlux, Oakland, New Jersey, was awarded a product innovation award for its UV-free antimicrobial LED lighting solution, ActiveClean. Hosted by Architectural SSL magazine, Amerlux’s lighting solution was named one of the most innovative solutions in the industry.
The Product Innovation Awards celebrate innovative LED and solid-state luminaires and fixtures on the market. Thirteen designers and lighting specialists evaluated all of the submitted products and systems.
“We are grateful to Architectural SSL magazine for honoring our innovative, 405-nanometer lighting solution, which kills bacteria and viruses including COVID-19,” says Bill Plageman, Amerlux’s vice president of marketing and product management. “… These award-winning attributes make it an attractive addition to any workplace looking to better protect their most valuable assets – their employees and their customers.”
In the magazine’s latest issue, judges say ActiveClean provides “a great defense against pathogens and bacteria.”
“And because this wavelength is outside the UV spectrum, it exceeds IEC standards for continuous, unrestricted use around people – a very important consideration,” says Jim Crockett, editor at large at Architectural SSL. “Testimonials from already adopted customers were convincing.”
