Acuity Brands Announces Strategic Agreement With UV Angel

Jan. 5, 2021
The partnership will enable Acuity Brands to purchase and resell the UV Angel Clean Air pathogen control system, as well as pursue joint developments of UV light disinfection products.

Acuity Brands, Inc., recently announced it has entered into a private label supply agreement with UV Angel to enable Acuity Brands to purchase and resell the UV Angel Clean Air pathogen control system, as well as pursue joint developments of UV light disinfection products. The UV Angel Clean Air system integrates UV-C light technology into a ceiling-mount luminaire that offers an unobtrusive environmental treatment system that uses concealed ultraviolet light to safely treat air automatically and continuously to neutralize pathogens. The agreement provides Acuity Brands with limited exclusivity for certain private label products throughout North America.

“Our agreement with UV Angel builds upon Acuity Brands’ offering of an industry-leading selection of advanced technologies and approaches to meet the diverse disinfection and budget requirements of our customers,” said Gary Trott, VP of technology commercialization, Acuity Brands Lighting, in the release.

Applications for the UV Angel Clean Air system include any commercial indoor space where a reduction in harmful pathogens is desired or required. Examples of indoor spaces that could benefit from the UV Angel Clean Air system include health care, education, commercial office, hospitality, retail, manufacturing (e.g., food processing plants), and general public and customer indoor gathering spaces at airports, restaurants and theaters.

“We are working to provide an unmatched portfolio of UV disinfection technology solutions, including: UV Angel’s highly effective approach to upper air room treatment using patented UV-C treatment technology; a continual air and surface disinfection solution for occupied and unoccupied spaces; and pulsed xenon technology to offer a rapid surface disinfection solution,” Trott added. “We believe these advanced UV light disinfection technologies coupled with Acuity Brands’ product portfolio of lighting, lighting controls and intelligent building solutions uniquely positions us to meet our customers’ evolving disinfection needs and help promote wellbeing in a variety of indoor locations.”
