"Upper Room GUV is the most effective method of continuously disinfecting occupied spaces." 

- Illuminating Engineering Society 

Germicidal Ultraviolet-C Technology

Upper-room UVC (sometimes called upper-room GUV) technology has been used by hospitals and the medical field for decades. This tested and trusted sanitizing technology uses germicidal UVC light which neutralizes and eliminates pathogens that pass through the UV treatment field. (Including COVID-19 pathogens.) This technology is now available to the public and is ideal for schools, long-term care homes, retirement residences, offices – and anywhere people share space.

Upper Room Air Disenfection


Sanilume will help keep your spaces safe for employees and customers now, and keep you prepared for future threats.


With the capacity of disinfecting the air in a 400sq ft space every two minutes, Sanilume is the most powerful Upper Room GUV in the world.


Upper Room germicidal UV is considered the most effective method for continuously disinfecting air in OCCUPIED spaces.

Trusted Safely

Upper Room GUV has been used reliably to control pathogen outbreaks for over 50 years.

How it works

We All Share The Same Air

The pandemic has created a heightened awareness of germs, bacteria, and viruses. The WHO, CDC and Health Canada have confirmed COVID-19 transmission is largely through tiny aerosol droplets that linger in the air we breathe - for hours.  

UVC Eliminates Pathogens

With the proper use, UVC can efficiently neutralize bacteria and viruses. Germicidal UV (GUV) has been widely used for nearly one hundred years specifically for this purpose. SaniLume has taken this GUV technology to the next level, providing a convenient and attractive solution that can disinfect the air in a 20’ x 20’ area about every 2 minutes. SaniLume is safe to operate while people (including children) are in the space and provides peace of mind to everyone, knowing the air is being continuously treated.

Tried & Tested

The world’s main governing body for lighting (IES) states that “upper room air UVC is by far the most effective way to eliminate airborne pathogens.” With ultra-quiet fans and adjustable apertures to direct the UVC light, SaniLume is the most effective upper-room air GUV on the market. 

Create 24/7 air disinfection for common areas, classrooms, resident suites, gyms, offices and more with a simple, quick installation. 

People Safe Pathogen Inactivation Zone

Using proprietary technology and clean modern compact design, UVC light is directed to a narrow zone safely above people’s heads. Rising convection currents within the room are greatly amplified by our fixture and cycle the air through the pathogen elimination zone many times per hour

Breathe Easier In Shared Spaces

Coronavirus can commonly spread through respiratory droplets of small particles, such as those in aerosols, which are produced even when a person breathes

Centre for Disease Control (CDC)

Because UVC disinfection kills most recognized pathogenic microorganisms, it can generally be inferred that sterilization and disinfection should minimize the viability of SARS-CoV-19 on surfaces and in the air in confined spaces


Upper room GUV is considered the most effective application for room air disinfection

Frequently Asked Questions

Does UV light disinfection work?

Commercial upper-room germicidal UV units continuously emit UVC light above people's heads, inactivating viruses, germs and bacteria. However, their effectiveness depends greatly on how well the room air is mixed with the UVC light.

Does UV-C kill the coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19?

UV disinfection does not technically “kill” viruses, since they are not living organisms. UVC light inactivates virus and bacteria by changing their DNA and RNA, destroying their ability to reproduce. According to Illuminating Engineering Society Report CR-2-20, UVC can effectively inactivate the SARS-CoV-2 virus, if the virus is directly illuminated by UVC at the effective dose level. 

What businesses should consider SaniLume?

We suggest it as an added measure of safety for schools, retirement homes, long term care facilities, hospitals, gyms, work site trailers, and offices. 

How does upper-room GUV work?

UVC light in the 254 nm spectrum has been used for decades as a scientifically proven method of pathogen disinfection in the upper areas of indoor spaces, above people’s heads. Up to 99% of common pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, mold spores and funguses are systematically eliminated 

Can SaniLume be used in workplaces?

SaniLume has been tested and certified to be below the UV exposure guidelines for an 8-hour day used by nearly all health governing bodies around the world. SaniLume has also been safety certified to UL standards. Care must be taken that the UVC energy fields not be in any line-of-sight conditions of any room occupants. 

How do I install SaniLume units?

SaniLume fixtures have a configuration like that of standard pendant light fixtures. The mounting and electrical hookup is essentially the same.
