SafeClass Technology Suite Fights Pathogens in Classrooms
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, California – Today, FSC Lighting announced the release and availability of its SafeClass technology suite, a combination of innovative pathogen-fighting technologies designed to reduce bacterial and viral pathogens in classrooms.
As the nation confronts the challenge of how to get students back to school safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, technologies like SafeClass may be part of the solution.
“Teachers, parents, and students all want to get back into classrooms,” said FSC CEO John Watkins. “We’ve developed SafeClass to be part of the solution to making that happen safely.”
SafeClass combines three unique pathogen-fighting technologies: TruWhite™ LED Lighting, powered by illumiPure, CleanBox UV Sterilization Packs, and Virtual Midnight Intelligent Optimization.
TruWhite™ LED Lighting, powered by illumiPure, emits a 405 and 470 nanometer wavelength of disinfecting light that shines onto surfaces and penetrates harmful micro-organisms. The lighting has been shown to be effective at targeting infectious pathogens like Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Escherichia, Shigella, Listeria, and destroys the rafts that CoVid-19 needs to thrive.
Unlike other light-based disinfection methods, TruWhite™ LED Lighting is completely safe to use in occupied spaces, so the lights can provide classroom illumination and fight pathogens at the same time.
CleanBox UV Sterilization Packs mount like a traditional light fixture but use built-in fans to move air through an enclosed UV sterilization chamber. Each CleanBox can sterilize 1,000 square feet of space from bacteria and viruses, and multiple CleanBoxes can be mounted in a single classroom.
Both CleanBox and TruWhite™ are integrated with FSC’s Virtual Midnight Intelligent Optimization system. Virtual Midnight uses seasonal, occupancy and light-level data to run advanced overnight disinfection cycles in rooms where SafeClass is installed, giving students and teachers a cleaner, safer environment to return to every morning.
FSC’s SafeClass technology suite is available now for deployment in classrooms around the country. TruWhite™ LED Lighting can be provided in a wide range of fixtures, from traditional troffers and retrofit kits, to LED strips, vapor-tight lighting, and more.
“We’re already working with several school districts,” said Watkins. “If we can be part of the solution to helping students, teachers, parents and our country get back on track, SafeClass will be one of the most fulfilling projects I’ve ever worked on.”
While SafeClass is specifically targeted at classrooms, the technology has potential applications in many other indoor spaces, including healthcare, retail, institutional and industrial facilities.
