How does BOLT work?
BOLT is a 360° commercial unit that is mounted to the ceiling. Its louvers allow UVC light to spread out horizontally across the ceiling, creating a virus eradication zone as air is circulated throughout the environment. BOLT’s UL approved ABS plastic louvers shield humans from UVC light, offering people-safe, continuous protection. Each BOLT system provides approximately 600 square feet of protection per unit, and issues an approximately 15-foot radius around each unit.
BOLT is most effective when used in combination with ceiling fans. The fans move the contaminated air containing airborne virus particles to the UVC light in BOLT, which kills the germs and then pushes clean air throughout the room. BOLT kills up to 99.9% of virus particles, allowing customers to breathe clean, germ-free air.
Upper-room UVGI is currently a recommended strategy to reduce exposures to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. A thoroughly vetted technology, the first HVAC system application to eliminate airborne pathogens dates to 1940.
