MOUNT VERNON, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 22, 2020 / Applied UV, Inc. (NasdaqCM:AUVI) (“Applied UV” or the “Company”), an infection prevention technology company that applies the power of narrow-range ultra violet light (“UVC”) utilizing its patented devices to destroy pathogens safely, thoroughly, and automatically, today announced that its subsidiary, SteriLumen, Inc.

Sterilumen is the exclusive distributor of the Airocide System line of air purification technologies for use in the hotel and hospitality industry in the U.S. and the Greater Middle East. The Airocide™ Air Purifiers utilize a patented technology developed by NASA to eliminate harmful, airborne particulates such as bacteria, mold, and viruses. The FDA has issued guidance for Air Purifiers and Disinfectants that states that they may reduce the risk of viral exposure to SARS-CoV-2 by keeping aerosol concentrations to low levels.
The Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club Resort includes a residential community, a Marina, the Dubai Creek Golf Club and the 5 Star Luxury Park Hyatt Hotel which was voted “World’s Leading Corporate Resort 2019” at the World Travel Awards.
The plan is to first install the Airocide Air Purifier systems in the resort’s restaurants and in certain designated residential villas. The Company is in preliminary discussions to install the Airocide™ systems in the resort’s residential villas and guest rooms as well as its SteriLumen line of UVC disinfecting devices, including the Company’s patented disinfecting Drain Device, Retrofit Kit and Shelf solutions in the public bathrooms of the resort. The Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club has 223 guest rooms and suites, 24 villas each with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms as well as other spaces such as meeting rooms.
Max Munn, President of Applied UV, commented, “We are extremely proud to be able to partner with such a prestigious resort. Dubai is one of the leading luxury destinations in the world with over 120,000 hotel rooms in Dubai alone, out of which over 40,000 are in the 5 Star segment. We are excited and hope to showcase our UV technology prominently and help our partners to provide a safer environment for their guests in these challenging times.”
