UV-PENTALIGHT is composed of:

Designed to provide high quality UV contamination control in kind of environment, PENTALIGHT main features are:
• 5 lamps, 360° irradiation
• Available in 2 size/lamp model (60 - 120 W)
• 18,000 hrs lamp life
• Motion sensor on each side to switch OFF lamps automatically in case of personnel entering the room
• Remote control to switch ON / OFF the system and check treatment status
• High class wheels, (hospital instruments model)
• Visual indicators on top (purple / red / green) to indicate treatment starting / interrupted accidentally / finished
• Treatment of 99,99% should be accomplished within 4 minutes, in 10’ you get 99.9999%.
(University tests following FDA standards)


UV-PENTALIGHT 5/120 RCD is a five lamps germicidal device, placed on a stand, with five wheels for easy mobility. It works on direct radiation at 360 degrees and disinfects irradiated air and surfaces. The UV-C lamps, with emission peak at 253.7 nm. (nanometers), have a strong germicidal power against all micro-organisms (molds, bacteria and viruses).
Each UV-PENTALIGHT series can be installed in any type of environment to achieve a deep disinfection of air and surfaces, even those difficult to be reached by traditional systems.
When turned on, it gets a strong reduction of microbes in the air and on surfaces. For example, in 4 minutes at a distance of 3.5 meters, it achieves a 99.99% reduction of bacteria such as: Escherichia c., Salmonella t., Pseudomonas a., Staphylococco a., Klebsiella pn, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Bacillus s., Streptococco, ecc.
Increasing up to 10 minutes will reach 99.9999%.



Ultraviolet rays are electromagnetic waves which are part of light. Electromagnetic waves are divided into three main wavelength bands, expressed in nanometers, nm: Ultraviolet rays (UV) 100-400 nm Visible rays (light) 400-700 nm Infrared rays (IR) 700-800,000 nm UV rays are in turn identified in three bands:

  • UV-A (315-400 nm) with tanning properties;
  • UV-B (280-315 nm) con proprietà terapeutiche e di sintesi della vitamina "D";
  • UV-C (100-280 nm) with germicidal properties.

UV-C rays (100-280 nm) have a strong germicidal effect and reach their maximum efficacy at the 265 nm wavelength. The germicidal effect of UV-C radiation covers bacteria, viruses, spores, fungi, moulds and mites; this is mainly due to the destructive effect of the UV-C rays on their DNA, which damage their reproductive system and prevent them from replicating.

Bacteria, Viruses, Spores, Fungi, Mould, and Mites are all sensitive to, and can therefore be eliminated with, UV-C light. Mircrobes cannot acquire resistance to UV-C light, unlike that which occurs using chemical disinfectants and antibiotics. UV rays are ecological. Polluting the environment is inevitable using normal disinfectants. Directly inhaling the vapours, or swallowing food products contaminated by any contact with said chemical disinfectants, can also give rise to a number of serious risks. In cases where chemical disinfectants cannot be eliminated (food, pharmaceutical, healthcare industries, etc.), using ultraviolet rays for disinfection allows a reduction in their use, with considerable economic savings and greater care for the environment, while maintaining and almost always improving the level of disinfection. UV-C light devices can be installed in environments and on machinery and be programmed to maintain the same level of disinfection day and night, guaranteeing ideal hygiene conditions, without highs and lows. On the contrary, chemical disinfectants are effective only during their actual use. Using LIGHT PROGRESS equipped luminaires, operating costs are negligible; it could be said that “LIGHT PROGRESS” UV-C systems do not require maintenance except for the normal replacement of the lamps. The cost/benefit ratio is considered excellent; the devices are both powerful and long-lasting. Hence the elimination of germs using UV-C technology is low-cost and highly effective compared to (or in combination with) other systems.

UV-C light genuinely works if properly applied and with the necessary precautions. The difference between a quality project, and an application that fails to bring the desired results, lies in the degree of knowledge about the subject, and level of experience acquired over time. Light Progress has been developing successful projects worldwide since 1987, and has built a client portfolio consisting of important companies in all fields requiring certified hygienic conditions to produce quality products and services.
