UV Disinfection Lighting Company PURO Unveils HVAC Disinfection Technology

December 12, 2022

PURO® UV Disinfection Lighting announced today the successful installation of its latest disinfection solution, Fighter Flex System, at Mountain Metro Transit in Colorado Springs, CO. The system will keep building occupants safe from pathogens circulating through the HVAC system, as well as improve overall air quality.

“At Mountain Metro Transit, our goal has always been to offer clean, safe, and economical public transportation services to people in the Pikes Peak region,” said Chris Kaplan, Facilities Program Coordinator. “In partnering with PURO Lighting, we are providing a higher level of air quality to our facilities and ensuring clean air for the people who gather here. The system was easy to install and low maintenance with no filters to change, saving us energy and maintenance costs long into the future.”

PURO’s UV-C Fighter Flex System represents a revolutionary approach to disinfecting the air and coils found in air handling and HVAC systems. Using a patent-pending flexible cable system, PURO’s Fighter Flex offers a cost-effective, easy to install, easy to customize way to inhibit the creation of biofilm, increase indoor air quality, and improve occupant wellness. Because of its unique cable system and simple design, it reduces install time by as much as 40 percent.

“We created the Fighter Flex System to be a major improvement on typical germicidal UV systems installed in air handling units,” said Brian Stern, CEO of PURO Lighting. “For hospitals, schools, senior living facilities, offices, and more, the Fighter Flex is a new approach to keeping people safe from viruses, bacteria, fungus and mold coming through air handling units.”

In addition to improving overall air quality, PURO’s Fighter Flex System reduces biohazard risks, increases filter lifespan, and decreases the mold and fungus found on HVAC coils. When designed properly, UV-C systems in air handling systems have been shown to reduce energy usage by up to 15 percent. The system is easy to install, highly customizable to fit into any space, and connects seamlessly to various building automation systems as well as PURONet, PURO’s proprietary, cloud-based reporting software.
