Hardwired surface mount ultraviolet UVC strip fixtures are used to emit germicidal light rays to provide areas and surfaces with sanitization of bacteria, mold, and viruses. Some of the fixtures in this category are low wattage and ideal for limited spaces, where others reach up to five feet in length and cover much larger areas with high output UV. These higher-powered fixtures can also accommodate a wide range of configurations, including higher output light bulbs or bulbs suitable for refrigerated areas. Common applications include laboratories, clean rooms, operating rooms, food processing, and manufacturing operations. They are designed to be hardwired into the electrical system of a building and can be operated with a switch or occupancy sensor.
