Viruses and bacteria may be transferred through hand contact on the handrails of escalators and moving walks. Public areas with dense passenger flow are fast channels for the spread of viruses and bacteria. The question of how to clean handrails most efficiently has become a matter of great urgency.
Schindler safe sanitization solutions available:
Schindler CleanRail provides antimicrobial protection, allowing passengers to enjoy their ride with a high level of hygiene. The antimicrobial addition to the thermoplastic polyurethane body inhibits the ability of microbes to function. The additive is engineered for plastic and textile applications.
The Schindler handrail Ultra UV device uses germicidal UVC light to treat the handrails at a short distance. This directly damages DNA and RNA, which are the genetic materials of bacteria and viruses, preventing their rapid spread, and also provides a comfortable handrail surface for passengers.
Thanks to the physical disinfection process using UVC 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. The design makes it easy to install. The Schindler handrail Ultra UV device is a practical solution to help prevent the rapid spread of bacteria and viruses.
The Ultra UV PRO device works similarly to the standard Ultra UV device, but operates at a higher efficacy, providing even an more efficient level of disinfection.
