Energy efficiency and durability
The use of PAL products using LED technology allows to achieve important and significant savings in power consumption compared to traditional lighting systems. The electric power consumption can be reduced between 60 and 90% with a consequent reduction of related costs.
Thank to long-life lamps (more than 70,000 hours) it is also possible to achieve significant savings on replacement and maintenance costs of traditional systems.
Antibacterial and antiviral effects
PAL allows the elimination of many types of viruses and many bacteria, like Gram – type (E. Coli) and Gram + (such as Staphylococcus aureus that can lead to food poisoning). Tests conducted in specialized laboratories show reductions ranging between 98 and 99% of the bacterial population.
PAL also eliminates many of the unpleasant odors caused by bacteria or odorant molecules dissolved in the air (therefore a “chemical sense”) from daily activities and people presence.
Air pollution elimination (VOCs)
PAL also eliminates organic substances dissolved in the air. Tests conducted on mixtures composed of VOC (up to 14 different components) evidence the fact that, after only 120 minutes, organic elimination reaches 90% of the total.
Very often we are fooled into thinking that, within our house’s walls, in our office, in our children’s schools, gyms, swimming pools and all those closed places we usually attend, we are immune to the problem of polluted air, like we were in a bubble, but we are not.
Not only is not true, but to indoor pollution are recognized serious health effects: as a matter of fact, the daily and prolonged exposure to a polluted and unhealthy environment causes a series of health problems such as allergies and dermatitis, headaches, fatigue, asthenia and many of the respiration diseases; all these health problems linked to indoor pollution are known, in their entirety, as SBS (from the acronym Sick Building Syndrome).
Indoor air pollution is caused by the presence of physical and biological chemical contaminants in closed and confined environments that lead to deterioration of air’s quality inside our homes, offices, schools, kindergartens and public places in general.
