Targus launches world’s first UL-certified surface disinfection solution

London, UK —January 4, 2022 – Targus, a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, today announced that its UV-C LED Disinfection Light has been certified to UL 962, the Standard for Safety for Household and Commercial Furnishings. This makes the Targus UV-C LED Disinfection Light the only surface disinfection solution in the world to meet UL’s safety requirements for household and commercial use.

Hitting stores next month, the UV-C LED Disinfection Light incorporates state-of-the-art UV-C LED and automation technology to provide a safe and consistent, no-touch solution to help reduce pathogens with UV-C light.


Achieving UL 962 certification is a significant accomplishment that demonstrates a commitment to a high level of safety,” says Ibrahim Jilani, global director of UL’s Consumer, Medical and Information Technologies group. “This is the first surface disinfection solution to have achieved this type of safety certification in the commercial space.”

Dave Crew, Commercial Director EMEA at Targus, adds: “Achieving this certification from UL is a major step forward in demonstrating the utmost safety of our UV-C Light as Targus continues in its commitment to deliver innovative solutions that increase productivity and hygiene in today’s remote and hybrid workplaces.”


Designed to stand on your desktop, the UV-C LED Disinfection Light’s AC-powered light turns on and runs for 5 minutes, every hour, to break down the DNA of microorganisms, effectively eliminating up to 99% of pathogens on device surfaces within the active disinfection area beneath the light.


There is also a built-in auto shut-off safety feature that utilises motion sensors. Should any motion be detected within the safety zone, outside of the active cleaning area, or if the device senses any activity within the safety zone, the UV-C LEDs will be automatically disabled. After five minutes of inactivity, the light will resume its disinfection cycle.


The UV-C LED Disinfection Light (AWV339EU) retail price will be £289.99 and be available for sale starting in Spring/Summer 2022 on Targus.com
