Rentokil lights the way in fly control with the launch of 'Lumnia'

Representing the future in flies control – Lumnia is the first unit on the market to utilise LED light in delivering truly effective fly control. It is designed to help businesses reduce costs and contamination risks through energy efficient LEDs and unique encapsulation mechanism.

Developed by its in-house experts, which is the first in the world to use energy efficient LEDs to transmit Ultra Violet (UV) light. UV light has long been used as an insect attractant within EFKs. Rentokil’s Lumnia fly control unit uniquely uses LED technology to emit UV light, at an optimal frequency to attract flying insects.

This UV light is transmitted 40% further and across a broader catchment area via the unit’s LED strips, than it would be transmitted using standard UV tubes.  Furthermore, the LED strips will last at least three years, compared to standard tubes which need to be replaced annually, and with its low power consumption Lumnia also delivers an average of 61% in energy savings, when compared to similar products.

The Lumnia looks like no other EFK on the market, with its slick, modern styling, and clever modular design that enables an encapsulation unit to be easily added if required.  With different energy modes, it provides the ability to ensure optimum UV light levels are maintained depending on where the unit is located within a building, and enables energy consumption to be adjusted for day or evening.

Berwyn Evans, UK Product Manager for Rentokil Pest Control, comments; “The benefits of LEDs, especially around energy efficiency have long been known, but until now they have not been effectively used to emit the UV output required by fly control units.  Following extensive research and development we have been able to develop an EFK which is not only effective, but looks great and also delivers substantial costs savings over competitor units.  Lumnia can also be serviced without the requirement for a ladder, due to the provision of a clever internal sliding mechanism, and this has beneficial health and safety implications for both our service colleagues and customers.”

Flies pose significant hygiene and food safety risks as they can transmit a wide range of different pathogens and they represent one of the most common causes of food poisoning. Often, these flies infestation may cause damaging risks to the food business, such as financial penalty, business closure, loss of patronage, negative brand image, social media crisis or medical reimbursement.

Lumnia units are designed to attract, kill and encapsulate insects hygienically, helping eliminate the risk of contamination. Protect your food business with energy cost savings with Lumnia at 6347 8138 or drop a quick online form.
