Today more than ever, preventing the spread of microorganisms is a growing concern in our homes. Items like cans, bottles, and other groceries come from a store where several people are handling the items. Hands may be reaching into your ice machine without a second thought. When you choose a product with BrightShield antimicrobial lighting, you are creating a home environment that is more hygienic.
BrightShield is a non-UV antimicrobial light that has a 90%-99.99%* reduction in surface contamination and is approved for continuous use around people, pets, and plants. These products utilize Vyv™ Technology. Vyv™ is the leader in antimicrobial lighting technology designed to kill* and prevent the spread of microbes. Their LED technology is used in a growing list of products for home, schools, healthcare, offices and beyond.
How It Works
This patented technology casts a soft violet glow around the clock that destroys microbial cells from the inside out, keeping the surfaces it touches free from contamination. BrightShield harnesses its microbial killing power from within the visible light spectrum, which ranges from 380nm to 750nm. This spectrum is comprised of the colors that we see, like the colors within the rainbow. This LED is engineered to produce an abundance of light in the 400 nm to 420nm range.

* Testing on a non-enveloped virus (MS2 bacteriophage) showed a 97.12% reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 8 hours on hard surfaces. Testing on SARS-CoV-2 (enveloped virus) showed a 98.45% reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 4 hours on hard surfaces. Testing on MRSA and E. coli showed 90%+ reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 24 hours on hard surfaces. Results may vary depending on the amount of light that is reaching the surfaces in the space where the product is installed and the length of time of exposure. Use of Vyv antimicrobial light is not intended to replace manual cleaning and disinfection practices.
