Fire and germ protection

Light Progress UV-C germicidal light technology provides fire protection by preventing flammable grease deposits in kitchen range hoods, reducing the odours of cooking fumes and preventing the formation of germs on grease deposits. The optional TIOX® honeycomb filter, a Light Progress original, is coated with a special nano-structured titanium dioxide paint and Silver Salts, capable of degrading many organic and inorganic pollutants. The TIOX®, combined with the very high-powered UVC light emitted by Light Progress lamps, additionally oxidises the polluting particles, thus contributing to the success of the deodorising action.


The benefits

of original Light Progress products

our range stands due to its advantageous solution because:

Icon Lightprogress

It is specifically designed to be integrated into the ventilation systems of industrial kitchens

Icon Lightprogress

It has a software dedicated to the design of perfectly rated UV systems based on the measurements of the machines and available exposure times, complete with all accessories, which are easily integrated.

Icon Lightprogress

It is the only one to use both UV-C and UV-C+O3 (Ozone), with the possibility to indiscriminatelyi equip each product with both types of lamps, combining the two technologies even alternately.

Icon Lightprogress

It includes the original TiOx filters, which combine the efficacy of Titanium Dioxide with UV technology.


How it works

UV rays eliminate up to 99.999% of microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria, destroying their DNA or RNA with minimal effort and without the use of hazardous chemicals or gases. The UV rays do not leave any residue, so the environments are immediately ready for use without any risk.



Light Progress uses UV-C light as a decontamination and disinfection solution.

Purchase Assistance and Custom Solutions

We turn challenges into solutions.

We are therefore able to develop special systems for application in different contexts: we guarantee efficacy, simplicity of use and safety for all custom projects. We will guide you in selecting the ideal product from within our range, composed of hundreds of different systems, proposing the solution most suited to your needs


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 really does work when applied correctly and with the necessary precautions. The difference between a quality project and an unsuccessful application is in-depth knowledge and experience gained over time. Since 1987, Light Progress has been carrying out successful projects all over the world and has acquired a clientele of major companies in all sectors that require verified hygienic conditions to produce quality products and services.
