Lumalier was founded in 1963 to develop advanced Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) technology, products, innovations, and engineering controls. Lumalier's advanced UV germicidal disinfection products are specifically engineered to benefit the healthcare, educational, office, institutional, commercial, retail, and residential markets.
Since its founding, Lumalier products have become the industry benchmark for safe, healthy air and surface disinfection, becoming the first UV manufacturer to attain UL approval for duct-mounted UV accessories (UL classification ABQK ).
Ongoing efforts to eliminate airborne respiratory sickness and disease has earned Lumalier special recognition and citations by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies.
A resurgence of tuberculosis (TB) in the 1980's created a renewed interest in UVGI technology, leading to an intense program to investigate and document germicidal UV requirements in the present day.
In 1980, Lumalier partnered with Dr. Paul Jenson from the CDC to work on improving the original upper air designs from the 1930's to help control tuberculous around the world. By working with the CDC, the design was not patented so it could be used around the world.
Through consultation and partnerships with national and internationally recognized TB control physicians and public health administrators, Lumalier redesigned its UV line to meet the critical demands of the worldwide healthcare community; manufacturing environmentally-friendly UVGI equipment that are more germicidally efficient, durable, attractive, and maintenance-free.
In 2020, Lumalier became part of the United Enertech family of companies and today is a leading manufacturer of UVGI products, which provide solutions for a broad array of applications. The company offers a complete selection of UVGI air and surface disinfection products including upper-air disinfection products designed to target air contamination in high-risk areas, in-duct disinfection products which are installed inside ventilation systems to provide high-level disinfection of airborne infectious pathogens throughout the entire building, and surface disinfection UV fixtures engineered for high-level disinfection of contaminated surfaces that can spread infection.
Lumalier remains an active member of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA), and an active member and participant of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and its UV Technical Committee TC2.9, and UV Standards Committee SPL-185.
Lumalier also continues its support and participation in various studies conducted by leading public health institutions, governments and universities concerned with the control of airborne pathogens via safe and economical UV cleansing energy.
