To combat the risk of infection from bacteria in locker rooms and restrooms and on equipment, Kenall has incorporated Indigo-Clean disinfecting technology into two of its best-selling, sealed LED light fixtures: the Millenium™ Stretch MLHA and the SimpleSeal™ HASEDI. Kenall's lights combine standard white light with safe 405-nanometer Indigo light to penetrate harmful bacteria, including Staph such as MRSA. It targets naturally occurring molecules in the bacteria to produce intracellular Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). Similar to bleach, ROS create an oxidative environment that kills bacteria, disinfecting the area as long as the light is on.
