Airport 2

The Trusted Authority for Airports

Benefits of Installing UVC Light Fixtures in Airports:

  • Inactivates pathogens such as COVID-19 to reduce the risk of travel related transmission
  • Improves indoor air quality (IAQ)
  • Provides peace of mind for travelers and airport employees
  • Reduces HVAC energy consumption and extends equipment lifecycle
  • Eliminates coil cleaning

Challenges: Airports

  • Poor indoor air quality (IAQ).
  • Spread of viruses and bacteria because people are traveling from many locations.
  • High concentration of people in spaces creates higher risk for spread of germs.
  • High energy and maintenance.

Airports have their own unique challenges for mitigating the spread of viruses and bacteria due to the high concentration of people. In addition, as a hub for travelers, sicknesses can spread from a broad range of geographic locations.

Achieving the best results in pathogen reduction starts with identifying the specific spaces and challenges, which can be unique to airport environments including:

  • Security lines
  • Ticketing areas
  • Transport/trains
  • Food courts & restaurants
  • Boarding areas
  • Restrooms
  • Open spaces
  • Retail areas
  • Private travel club suites
  • Baggage claim areas

UVC Solutions

A layered approach to reducing the spread of viruses and bacteria includes:

  • UVC placed within HVAC equipment for facility-wide improvement of indoor air quality (IAQ).
  • Upper-air UVGI for for populated areas with higher transmission probability.
  • Surface decontamination for regular cleaning or emergency disinfection.

UVC for Facility-Wide Disinfection and Improved HVAC Energy Efficiency

Installed in Air Handlers and Ductwork – New Construction or Retrofit

Airport Ticketing Area


In-AHU and In-Duct fixtures, such as the Lumalier Adjustable Rack (AR) Series UVC Fixtures, are installed inside ventilation systems to provide high-level, facility-wide disinfection of the airborne infectious pathogens that can cause respiratory sickness, disease, and infection. In-AHU and In-Duct fixtures are scalable to fit any size air handler unit (AHU).

  • Achieves the greatest square foot coverage at the lowest cost.
  • Uses the existing ventilation system to disinfect and distribute air.
  • Eliminates biological growth on coils and in the drain pan that can cause coil fouling, odors, and premature failure of air conditioning equipment.
  • Provides airport facilities with an ROI benefit with reduced energy consumption and maintenance.

UVC for High-Risk Areas with Higher Concentrations of People

Upper-Air UV Fixtures

Upper Air UVC


Upper-air UV fixtures are engineered to provide very targeted airborne pathogen reduction in high-risk areas.

  • Installation applications include security lines, boarding areas, ticketing areas, food courts, restrooms, baggage claim areas, and other spaces where there’s a higher risk of spread.
  • Units are available for high or low ceilings and for any square footage.
  • Units can be permanently or temporarily installed for flexible space uses.
  • Natural convection-currents create repeated air disinfection within defined spaces.

UVC for Risk Management

Surface Disinfection

Surface disinfection UV fixtures are engineered for high-level disinfection of contaminated surfaces that can spread infection.

  • Appropriate for temporary disinfection of floors, desks, counter, and table surfaces that have been contaminated.
  • Ideal for treatment of difficult-to-disinfect surfaces, such as keyboards, self-serve kiosks, and monitors.
  • Available in both fixed and portable options.
