Discrete, Stylish Fly Control
Rentokil Pest Control has launched Lumnia Slim, its latest innovative fly control solution.
Available in a choice of black or white with light oak sides, the Lumnia Slim’s modern design has been created to complement a business’ décor whilst helping to protect its reputation with effective fly control.
Rentokil’s original Lumnia Electronic Fly Killer (EFK) was the first in the UK to use LED technology. The Lumnia range has been assessed by Planet Mark, achieving Planet Mark Certification after demonstrating a 62% reduction in carbon emissions, when compared to Rentokil’s old Luminos range. In Lumnia Slim’s case, a test by Rentokil’s in-house experts found the unit could save a business up to 70% on annual energy costs over competitive EFKs.
In contrast with traditional UV tubes, the Lumnia range doesn’t contain Mercury, an element on the World Health Organisation’s top ten list of toxic substances. This is due to its harmful effects on humans and marine life.
Lumnia Slim has been designed for customer facing environments in the hospitality industry. Until now hospitality firms have had to rely on more commercial or industrial-looking EFKs most suitable for kitchen and catering environments. Entrances, foyers and receptions are low-risk areas, but are also location where fly intruders are occasionally unavoidable. Lumnia Slim provides effective control of flying insects, giving peace of mind to a business’ customers that its premises are hygienic and compliant.
Berwyn Evans, Head of SME for Rentokil Pest Control, says: “We know sustainability, compliance and brand reputation are all big priorities for our hospitality clients, and we have kept these factors front of mind when developing new innovations.
“Lumnia Slim is part of our Lumnia LED range, a diverse set of EFK products that support efforts to lower carbon emissions as well as being more effective at encapsulating flying insects. The added benefit for the hospitality industry is that it’s also a beautiful design, sleek and discreet.”
The two-colour options are available following tests in Rentokil laboratories that prove the effectiveness of colour contrasts with white traps on darker walls, and vice-versa for lighter walls. For example, within 90 minutes the white Lumnia Slim unit on a black wall caught almost 400% more, flies than the white unit on a white wall.
