TB, RAM and CM Upper-Air Series in-room air treatment fixtures are designed specifically for continuous upper air UVC irradiation that helps decontaminate the environment around the patient.. These trusted fixtures have been successfully used to control the spread of airborne microorganisms and bio-aerosols in hospitals, prisons, clinics and government buildings since 1960. The fixtures incorporate adjustable louvers that safely direct UVC energy above contact level (7+ feet) with occupants, ensuring TB/RAM/CM fixtures disinfect the air in occupied rooms.
TB Upper-Air Series
The TB Upper-Air Series is available in three sizes (providing 100, 200 and 300 square feet of coverage), and operate from 110-277 VAC at 50 or 60 Hz, allowing installation flexibility to accommodate virtually any room or building layout. Multiple fixtures can be used to cover areas larger than 300 square feet. TB Upper-Air Series fixtures are designed for easy access lamp changes (simply unscrew two large thumbscrews on the sides and drop the hinged louver down for easy lamp access). TB Upper-Air Series lamps are rated for two-year continuous operational life with approximately 20% drop in UVC output at end of lamp life.
RAM Upper-Air Series – Tamper Proof
The RAM Upper-Air Series features dual lamp configurations with fan motors pulling the air through the stainless steel housing. This tamper proof fixture is available in two high output lamp sizes (14” or 36”), with two voltage options (115 or 230VAC), allowing installation flexibility to accommodate virtually any room or building layout. RAM Series fixtures are also designed for easy access lamp changes (simply unlatch the cover). RAM Series lamps are rated for two-year continuous operational life with approximately 20% drop in UVC output at end of lamp life.
CM 15 Upper-Air Corner Mount Series
CM 15 Upper-Air units are designed to mount in corners of rooms where TB Series units are not desirable. A single CM 15 unit can cover 75-100 square feet, depending on the application. The CM 15 is easily accessed for lamp replacement (simply remove a single fastener on the top of the unit and slide off the louver). CM 15 lamps are rated for 9 ,000 hours effective lamp life (approximately one-year ).

Prolonged, direct exposure to UVC light can cause temporary skin redness and eye irritation, but does not cause skin cancer or cataracts. American Ultraviolet systems are designed with safety in mind and, when properly installed by a professional contractor, do not allow exposure to UV irradiation and allow for safe operation and maintenance.
