Puro was founded by a group of industry veterans in the commercial lighting and controls market. Our vision is to create an organization with a focus on protecting people’s health and promoting wellness with specialized lighting technologies.

Utilizing exclusive patents and technology from Violet Defense™, our first offering to the market is a breakthrough UV disinfection solution, which includes the first known high intensity full spectrum UV fixture that can be installed in a ceiling, suspended, or wall mounted. These fixtures kill up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses1 and can significantly reduce the growth of fungi such as yeasts and molds2, when used at the recommended spacing and runtimes.

This technology gives users the ability to disinfect a room of any size, on demand. It can be used on demand, scheduled to run overnight, or integrated into your building automation system for reporting and ease of integration in your day to day operations. This proprietary UV disinfection technology is now accessible and easy to use for the broader commercial market, in many applications.
