Handrails are a surface that nearly all of us touch as we move about cities and buildings – and they’re particularly important for passengers that need extra support and help with their mobility. That’s why keeping them clean and reducing the bacteria and viruses that build up on them is an essential task. Schindler Ultra UV and Ultra UV Pro do just that with an innovative and effective UV-C light system.
The automatic disinfection system routinely eliminates bacteria and viruses and guarantees effective protection during operation time.
Thanks to the physical disinfection process using UV-C LED lighting technology, handrails are disinfected in an efficient and environmentally friendly way.
The device is installed inside the escalator or moving walk to ensure passenger safety with a very simple installation process.
Physical disinfection with no harmful chemicals or heavy metal residue on the railing or in our waste or water supplies.
The Schindler Ultra UV device uses germicidal UV-C light to treat the handrails at a short distance. This directly damages DNA1) and RNA2), which are the genetic materials of bacteria and viruses, preventing their rapid spread.

UV-C light is invisible. The red light in the image serves as an operation indicator. 1) DNA is the abbreviation for deoxyribonucleic acid. 2) RNA is the abbreviation for ribonucleic acid.
The Ultra UV Pro device works similarly to the standard Ultra UV device, but operates with more UV-C lights, providing an efficient level of disinfection for heavily used escalators.
