October 18, 2022

CYPRESS, Calif –  As we continue to see relaxed COVID-19 restrictions — leaving the onus of safety in the hands of business operators, owners and facilities managers — global visual technologies company Christie® is pleased to introduce its newest CE- and UL- certified commercial UVC-LED disinfection light fixture for occupied, indoor spaces. Christie CounterAct UR10 with UVC-LED and patented Care222® far-UVC - plus visible light, in a single unit, is recommended for commercial offices, government facilities, schools, transit hubs, retail shops, medical buildings — for enhanced and safe airborne and surface disinfection wherever people gather indoors, in public places.

CounterAct UR10 builds on the release of the CA20, Christie’s first far-UVC disinfection fixture, and the desire among global business and government leaders to increase confidence and improve wellbeing in our indoor spaces, such as meeting rooms, classrooms, and other places people gather. Combining filtered Care222® far-UVC light with upper room high-power mercury-free UVC-LED, CounterAct UR10 is an evolution in technology for treating both surfaces and air in occupied indoor spaces.

The new reality is that on average we’re seeing a pandemic arise every four years since the year 20001.  This trend indicates the 2023 common cold, flu season and the next pandemic are right around the corner. This is why the U.S. government is committing, through the American Rescue Plan, a total of USD$472 billion2 for schools as well as state, local, and tribal governments which can be used to deploy systems such as CounterAct UR10 UVC disinfection light fixtures.

“With our latest addition to the Christie CounterAct line of UVC disinfection fixtures, we are excited to continue to help organizations create greater confidence in indoor spaces as we return to in person interaction,” said Brent Peckover, director, industrial applications, Christie. “The high-power upper room ultra-violet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) disinfection performance of UR10, combined with visible light capabilities to light your space, allows businesses to replace existing commercial light fixtures as a cost-effective solution.”

CounterAct UR10, which kills both airborne and surface pathogens, can be installed in rooms with ceiling heights between 9 and 22 feet (3-7.6m), includes remote control features with iOS and Android support, and can be integrated with building automation/management systems. Peckover explains, “UVC disinfection systems should be seamless and require no day-to-day user interaction while effectively inactivating pathogens in the occupied space.”
