American Air & Water® Has Partnered with Don Ryan Center to Launch Breakthrough Product

BLUFFTON, SC: American Air & Water®, Inc. of Hilton Head Island, SC has partnered with the Don Ryan Center for Innovation (DRCI) in Bluffton, SC to help launch its new, patented, innovative, lighting and disinfection product, PrismUV™. 

Warren Lynn, President of American Air & Water®, said he believes the Don Ryan Center will be a significant resource for his company as it gets its newest, multi-functional lighting product financed and into nationwide distribution.

American Air & Water® has been specializing in the research, development, marketing and sales of germicidal air, surface and water disinfection systems for nearly 20 years, and with its new PrismUV™ product will now move into the arena of “smart light technology.” 

PrismUV™ Light Combats Germs, Pathogens, Allergens and Odors

“Our patented product replicates sunlight indoors, which improves artificial lighting,” said Lynn, “and by doing so our PrismUV™ light is capable of combating indoor germs, pathogens, allergens and odors as well as positively impacting the mood of the occupants.”

“PrismUV™ is a truly multi-functional, disruptive product that marks a paradigm shift in the world of indoor lighting,” said Lynn. He pointed out that it will alleviate mal-illumination of people spending too much time under artificial indoor light which limits their daily exposure to ‘full-spectrum’ daylight.

“Working with innovative companies like American Air & Water, Inc. is at the core of our mission,” said Trent Williamson, CEO, Don Ryan Center for Innovation, “We thrive in helping entrepreneurs form companies using sound business practices and take solid solutions such as this one to market. We’re encouraged by the potential for this product and look forward to seeing it develop.”

Lynn described the market potential as enormous. PrismUV™ will be especially effective in dormitory and hotel rooms as well as a range of other indoor spaces from cruise ship cabins to children’s day care and senior living facilities.

Lynn credits The Don Ryan Center for Innovation, and in particular its new leadership team of Trent Williamson and Charles Wohl for helping him focus the direction for PrismUV™ and open doors to additional outside partners and

investor groups.
