South Bend, Indiana, May 8, 2014 – American Green Technology® (AGT) a world class leader in energy efficient induction lighting technologies has added new options to the Arcalux® Health Risk Management System (HRMS) line including an LED lighting panel. The LED version will be called the HRMS02. In addition, an HRMS version without a down-light called the HRMS03 is now available for customers who are looking for the air purification and pathogen elimination that the system delivers, but do not require the light.
“For most of our customers, their needs often differ when it comes to lighting or design,” said Meredith Jimenez, Corporate Communications Director. “At AGT, our goal is to offer the best options possible with the new LED panel and the version without a down-light; we now have the flexibility of choice along with the standard fluorescent HRMS. I’m sure the HRMS02 will be a popular choice. More importantly, the HRMS in any form still offers excellent protection against deadly HAI-causing pathogens. It is a tool that can help save lives.”
The state of the art LED panel has a soft “MoonGlow” appearance and provides excellent lighting distribution and light levels. The HRMS02 comes in standard or in a high-powered factor where additional or task level lighting is needed. The color standard is 4100 kelvin, but it will be available in 2 additional color variations; 3500 kelvin or 5000 kelvin.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cancer patients are especially prone to infection during chemotherapy treatment and are more at risk for complications from infections. Each year, 650,000 cancer patients receive treatment at outpatient cancer centers and 1 in 10 patients is hospitalized for an infection.Because cancer patients are more susceptible to complications that can lead to tissue damage, organ failure and fever, the installation of the HRMS in outpatient cancer centers can keep the air clean for patients with compromised immune systems and help fend off dangerous bacteria like MRSA or C. difficile.
