This white paper explores the fundamental concepts of qualitative and quantitative lighting design, providing a comprehensive understanding of how these two approaches can be used to create effective lighting solutions for a variety of environments.
The goal of this white paper is to examine the benefits and risks of using Germicidal Ultra Violet (GUV) light systems in fighting the transmission of infectious diseases. These systems have been used for over a century in water treatment, air systems, and for disinfecting surfaces. GUV has been most commonly used in hospitals, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and clean room applications. It is a proven technology for disinfection and killing of viruses, bacteria and fungal organisms. GUV is becoming increasingly well known to the general public due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Schnackel Engineers, Inc. has recently published a series of white papers on Enhanced HVAC Infection Control, including one specifically focused on the use of UV-C air sterilization in a building’s heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems, as well as Upper Room GUV applications.
