Q. How Does Disinfecting Light work?
This technology harnesses specific wavelengths of visible light to excite certain molecules found in the cells of bacteria, mold and fungi, but not in those of humans, pets and plants. When these molecules are excited it causes a toxic reaction within the cell that leads to death.
Q. Do you use ultraviolet (UV) light? What’s the difference between your technology and UV?
UV is a well-known disinfection tool, but it is not safe for human exposure as it degrades our DNA. This technology is much different than a UV lighting disinfectant. We use LEDs to produce light in the visible region of the spectrum. This is sometimes confused with UV, but this technology does not emit UV light waves and our method of action for killing bacteria is entirely different and safe for human exposure.
Q. Are your disinfecting lights safe for humans, plants and animals?
Yes! This technology harnesses the visible light spectrum; these LEDs do not emit ultraviolet (UV) light. The International Electrotechnical Commission – the international standards organization that prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies – has certified, as administered by Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL), that products Powered with Vital Vio LEDs are safe for continuous exposure and unrestricted use.
Q. How long will Arden Lighting Tech LED lights last?
Our LED lights are under warranty for 5 years and our LEDs are rated to last up to 50,000+ hours.
Q. How well do your lights perform in tough environments?
When we designed the lights we built them with you in mind. All of our vapor tight lights come NSF#2 rated, IP65 water resistant, 6kV surge protection, high-impact housings and lenses, and the promise of a 5-year warranty.
Q. What does the IP66 rating mean?
IP66 is considered "dust tight". Lighting with this rating can be used in an outside setting and are water-resistant. With this rating, a fixture can't be damaged by high-pressure water jets (12.5 mm nozzle) projected against it from any angle.
