illumiPure LED lights with TruWhite technology is a powerful disinfectant, killing harmful bacteria and molds in the air, soft and hard surfaces, and eradicating nine strains of bacteria and fungus in less than 24 hours. By integrating high efficiency semiconductor emitters, antibacterial and antifungal effects are created by simply turning on the light. The disinfecting wavelength in illumiPure LED is hidden under natural, white light. When the light is turned on, the disinfecting wavelength triggers an intra-cellular reaction within the bacteria, eliminating contamination and preventing repopulation. This technology can replace or be combined with general lighting systems and is applicable for hospitals, mass transit facilities, and food processing plants.
TruGrow technology is embedded in all Calyx products and creates individual light spectra specifically tuned for use with individual crops and plant. This unique lighting system suppresses or emphasizes different areas of light depending on the absorption curves of individual plants and crops. By effectively coding the light spectrum to a plants specific needs, illumiGrow creates robust, healthy and sustainable crops ideal for vertical farming, and indoor growing.
“We believe that fabricating and manufacturing our products in America tells an important piece of our story,” says Higgins. “It’s a symbol of our commitment to our community, our employees and our customers. We intend to surpass expectations with all of our partners by delivering incredible products and an exceptional experience of doing business with illumiPure.”
