Shatter-Resistant Lamps KILL Germs, Mold & Viruses

Making An Ideal Solution For Sterilization Without Toxic Chemicals

Salisbury, N.C. - August 3, 2007 - Shat-R-Shield, the leading and largest manufacturer of coated safety lamps, today announced a line of UV/Germicidal lamps. These safety-coated fluorescent lamps emit specific high-output UV (ultraviolet) radiation which destroys bacteria, viruses, spores and molds.

By using a physical process - rather than chemical - to inactivate pathogens, the lamps are versatile and appropriate for a variety of applications:

o Food manufacturers benefit from the lamps by sterilizing packaging and products. o Large HVAC areas can employ the UV lamps to purify air and water going into their systems, a critical need in areas such as intensive care units o Water treatment centers can use the lamps for purification instead of adding chemicals to the water supply

In addition to providing optimum UV and germicidal performance, the lamps' clear and tough coating will safely contain virtually all glass and lamp elements in the event of accidental breakage. The safety coating also allows for hassle-free replacement in the event of breakage, with no dangerous broken glass to clean up.

"We strive to meet the needs of a variety of customers and these lamps help address a very unique need," said Shat-R-Shield Vice President of Sales & Marketing Marty Pint. "The germicidal lamps offer our customers an effective, easy-to-use and economical method to minimize bacterial contamination."
