Florida Center for the Blind Partners with Violet Defense to Protect Blind & Visually Impaired Clients & Staff

Violet Defense, an Orlando-based UV light technology company, developed UV pulsed xenon units that kill up to 99.9% of coronavirus, norovirus, and other viruses and bacteria in the air and on hard surfaces. These UV units are used in high-risk settings – including hospital operating rooms – to provide a clinical level of disinfection. Violet Defense’s UV mobile units will supplement Florida Center for the Blind’s cleaning protocols, social distancing, masks, and other safety procedures.

“Florida Center for the Blind supports the community’s most vulnerable. We are excited to partner with Violet Defense to provide the safest environment possible. Blind and visually impaired clients often use touch to explore the world, and Violet Defense’s UV units offer an increased level of protection at our center,” said Anissa Pieriboni, President/CEO.

“We are always humbled and honored when we get the opportunity to help protect organizations such as the Florida Center for the Blind so that they can focus on carrying out their important work.  It’s our mission as a company to create UV solutions that make it easy for organizations to disinfect their spaces to keep their staff and their customers safe,” said Terrance Berland, CEO of Violet Defense.
