Targeted, high-level UV disinfection for indoor spaces – including those with no HVAC in place.


Upper room UVGI (aka upper air UV) is designed for placement in the upper portion of indoor environments that need immediate airflow, circulation, and disinfection. Devices mounted on or near ceilings harness the power of UV-C and take advantage of rising natural convection air currents to destroy aerosolized pathogens and other pollutants that contaminate the air and can linger for extended periods of time.

Reduces Pathogen Load

Not only are our upper air units created to help eliminate viruses, bacteria, mold, and allergens in the air, they can help reduce pathogens that settle out of the air and onto surfaces.

Smart Infection Control Strategy

Playing a key role in a smart infection control strategy, Aerapy upper air UV systems are ideal for and can be found in a variety of indoor environments including healthcare, education, food industry, retail/commercial, emergency services, animal care, hospitality, temporary housing, and more.

Affordability for Today and The Future

Our commercial-grade, high-quality upper air UV devices are designed for easy maintenance with a smart, tool-less design and long-term affordability with non-proprietary UV lamps.






UV Research & Studies

Infectious diseases including tuberculosis, measles, influenza, SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), and more are spread via aerosols. What are aerosols and why does understanding the role they play in disease transmission matter for effective infection control?


Droplets vs. Aerosols

Airborne infectious diseases spread via droplets and aerosols. When someone sneezes, for example, you may see expelled droplets. These “mini-cannonballs” fly through the air relatively short distances before landing on surfaces or on someone else—possibly in their eyes, nose, or mouth. Aerosols are microscopic droplets that remain floating in the air, circulating throughout indoor environments—for extended periods of time just waiting for someone else to inhale them.

Cleaning the Air with UV

Because the larger droplets fly short distances they can be eliminated with normal surface cleaning, for the most part, but for every one large droplet you see there can be thousands of infectious aerosols still floating or traveling in the air like cigarette smoke. In an enclosed area it’s not so easy to avoid cigarette smoke. And the smoke can build up over time. Now, think of people sneezing, coughing, talking, laughing, singing, or just breathing, and imagine those invisible, potentially infectious aerosolized pathogens (the “smoke”)—a growing pathogen load—collecting in your space (possibly much more aerosol than you thought). This is where UV comes in and why it has been used in human healthcare settings for close to a century. When those pathogens make contact with ultraviolet light, the DNA of the infectious microorganisms is disrupted, killing the pathogens or rendering them harmless, thereby “cleaning” the air

Researched, Tested, and Study-Backed

But here’s the tricky part—not just any UV can effectively clean the air. That’s why Aerapy UV is researched, tested, and study-backed with proven results, not only for air cleaning but also surface cleaning to help disinfect areas missed after normal cleaning.


Independent laboratory testing showed Aerapy UV killed more than 99.9% of pathogens including SARS-CoV-2, MRSA, and more

Tests conducted by independent labs showed Aerapy UV killed more than 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, mold, and more. Tested viruses covered the spectrum of hardiness in the environment and satisfied six key factors to meet all combinations for viruses. 99.97% of SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19) was eliminated in one air pass.



University study found to reduce pathogenic airborne concentrations up to 99.96%

Aerapy UV system was found to reduce airborne concentrations of pathogenic surrogate and vaccine strains up to 99.96% in this study conducted by University of Arizona’s College of Public Health, Environment, Exposure Science & Risk Assessment Center. Tested pathogens included Bacteriophage MS2.



Field study shown to reduce upper respiratory infections by 87.1%

Upper respiratory infections (URIs) in animal subjects were found to have decreased by 87.1% when Aerapy UV air disinfection systems were operated continuously in this three-year retrospective observational field trial using Aerapy in the HVAC system and Aerapy’s patented Zone360 upper air UV system. This study is published in the November 2020 issue of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
