Lighting the Way For the Future of Travel

Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV) and PURO™ UV Disinfection Lighting are proud to announce a brand new partnership—the first of its kind in the hospitality industry. BGV and PURO Lighting are focused on protecting our guests’ health and promoting wellness with specialized lighting technologies, powered by Violet Defense™, for guests that stay at any BGV resort in the future.

What is PURO™ UV Disinfection Lighting Technology?

A new mobile technology, powered by Violet Defense™, that uses high-intensity full spectrum UV, including germicidal UV-C, and anti-bacterial UV-B and UV-A to effectively kill bacteria, fungi and viruses, and limit the growth of fungi on surfaces and in the air in a matter of minutes.

Utilizing exclusive patents and technology from Violet Defense™, this breakthrough UV disinfection solution includes the first known high-intensity full spectrum UV fixture that can be installed in a ceiling, suspended or wall-mounted. These fixtures kill up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and can significantly reduce the growth of fungi such as yeasts and molds when used at the recommended spacing and runtimes.

PURO’s lights have undergone independent clinical testing confirming the disinfection of viruses, bacteria and fungal pathogens. Their UV disinfection lights have been proven to rapidly kill up to 99.9% of Norovirus, C. diff, E. coli, Salmonella, MRSA, and C. auris. Per the EPA emerging pathogen guidelines from 2016 and based on clinical testing completed, their UV lights will have efficacy against Class 2 and 3 viruses, including coronaviruses, SARS, Influenza and Ebola.

Breckenridge Grand Vacations’ Commitment to Safety

BGV is committed to giving our guests and employees the confidence that our accommodations and workspaces are free of any harmful germs. By harnessing the power of natural light, we are reducing the use of harsh industrial chemicals to keep our rooms fresh and safe. The health and safety of our guests is our first priority at BGV—and we’re proud to go the extra mile to limit the spread of germs and protect the well-being of every member of our BGV family.

PURO Lighting products are proven and effective—already utilized in hospitals, surgical centers, clinics, and numerous other medical facilities—and BGV takes pride in being the first hotel and/or resort to implement this technology for the safety of our guests and employees.

This technology has been installed at each BGV property (including the Grand Colorado on Peak 8, the Grand Lodge on Peak 7, Grand Timber Lodge, Gold Point Resort, the Breck Inn and all employee workplaces), giving our staff the ability to disinfect a room of any size. It can be used on-demand or scheduled to run overnight and it’s used at all BGV properties between guest stays to ensure a safe and clean visit, as well as run frequently in all common areas and amenities, including our lobbies, spas and gyms.

Breckenridge Grand Vacations’ mission statement is “Our Family Commitment: Always Grand Vacations!”—and that includes doing everything in our power to create Grand vacations safely. The safety of our guests has always been important and is even more important as COVID-19 continues to threaten our daily lives and the lives of our loved ones.

We are proud to partner with PURO Lighting and lead the way for the hospitality industry in guest safety – and we look forward to sharing smiles with our owners and guests for years to come!
