The franchisees of the Dania Pointe and Aventura BurgerFi locations have partnered with Blue Halo Lighting LLC, exclusive distributors for ETi, to install SilentAire UVC disinfecting light fixtures throughout both restaurants to provide visitors with a safe and effective air disinfection solution. SilentAire and CleanAire LED light fixtures utilize cutting-edge UVC technology to effectively deactivate and kill 99.9% of bacteria, mold, fungi, and viruses. Blue Halo Lighting LLC is now taking preorders online for products only available in the U.S.

“The quality of the air we breathe is important, and it can make the difference between getting sick and staying healthy. We want all of our visitors to be protected, and to know that we will take whatever steps necessary to create a healthy environment for them,” said Gino Gargiulo, Burger Guys Owner.

“Our employees ‘and customers’ health and safety is of utmost importance to us, and we’re proud to provide this extra layer of protection to visitors of BurgerFi in Dania Beach and Aventura.”

SilentAire UVC light fixtures, developed by Wheeling, IL-based ETi Solid State Lighting, combine ambient LED lighting with the latest in GUV/UVC technology and are 100% safe for occupied spaces. Featuring a sealed internal UVC disinfection chamber that ensures zero direct UVC contact, an extremely quiet integral air circulation system draws ambient air into the sealed UVC chamber, where it is disinfected and then recirculated back into the environment. SilentAire fixtures include a combination of 2×4 UVC LED flat panels, a 2×2 UVC LED ceiling troffer, a 10” UVC LED universal flush mount fixture, and 6” UVC LED round downlights. All installed fixtures are safe for use in occupied spaces, ensuring continuous effective
air disinfection while people are in the room.

Burger Guys of Dania Pointe and Aventura will celebrate the introduction of the revolutionary SilentAire and CleanAire systems at both locations on August 14th at Dania Pointe followed by the Aventura location on August 15th.

“We are proud to partner with Burger Guys,” said Eva Chan, CEO of ETi SSL. “Our UVC lighting solutions ensure that restaurants such as BurgerFi can continue to provide the excellent experience and service that customers expect while also navigating the challenges brought to the forefront by the global pandemic, such as effective air and surface disinfection.”

Throughout the global pandemic of 2020 and beyond, ETi has been working hard to bring safe and comprehensive GUV disinfection solutions to customers across the residential, commercial, and industrial markets.

“GUV has been scientifically proven to inactivate pathogens in the air and on surfaces, including the SARSCoV-2 virus,” said Eva Chan, CEO of ETi Solid State Lighting Inc. “Our goal has been to apply the latest GUV disinfection technology in a way that makes it safer for those we care about the most…our families, friends, co-workers, customers, and employees. We wanted to create an effective solution for air disinfection that can be used while people are in the space, learning, dining, speaking, and spending time together.”

“The world is opening back up again — and we want to help the doors stay open for our customers.”
