People are more aware of health and cleanliness in public spaces these days, such as malls, airports, and office buildings. Escalator handrails in particular can be a primary source of bacteria transfer. Clearwin’s Escalator Handrail UV Sanitizer uses UV-C technology to sanitize these surfaces and keep people safe as they use the handrail for balance. UV-C sanitization offers a number of benefits over conventional cleaning products. Learn more about our escalator handrail sanitizer and how it provides reassurance to riders.
Clearwin Escalator Handrail UV Sanitizer
Rather than assigning employees the repetitive task of cleaning handrails with wipes that leave behind chemical residues, invest in a Clearwin Escalator Handrail UV Sanitizer. This product is simple to install, lightweight, adjustable, and self-generated with a low-voltage generator that can power up to 10 UV-C lamps. Mounted at the top or bottom of the escalator, it can continuously kill bacteria on the handrails and requires very little maintenance.
The UV-C handrail sanitizer may be utilized on any escalator in:
- Shopping malls
- Apartment buildings
- Train stations
Aboveground Units Offer Reassurance to Riders
Clearwin’s Escalator Handrail UV Sanitizer is easily installed directly over the escalator handrail. The visibility of the aboveground unit allows you to show the public that their health and well-being are a top priority. A unit hidden within the escalator can be less effective and riders cannot see it, therefore do not know the handrails are being sanitized. It doesn’t give them the same reassurance of an aboveground sanitizing unit.
The blue LED light emanating from the front of the Clearwin sanitizer shows that the device is working, and the handrail is safe to touch. As an added benefit, branding or advertising can be added to the units to promote businesses within the facility.
Continuous UV-C Sanitization Keeps Bacteria Off the Handrails
While traditional cleaning reduces the bacteria count, the cleaning product has to be reapplied frequently, taking up staff time and using chemicals that can leave a sticky residue or cause irritation, not to mention damaging the handrail material.
Plus, manual cleaning can be disruptive to riders and isn’t always visible.
A continuous sanitizing system can eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria, especially E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Because of its efficacy, it is less likely to promote the growth of antibiotic-resistant superbugs. The UV-C light is effective at ensuring bacteria or illness does not transfer from one person to another via high-touch handrail surfaces. There is no cross contamination or toxicity.
Promoting Health and Safety on Escalators
As the owner or operator of a building or facility with an escalator, you want to do everything you can to promote safe escalator use. Many escalator passengers’ balk at the idea of holding the handrail, assuming it’s teeming with germs. Refusing to hold the handrail puts them at greater risk of injury, such as losing their balance and falling. Accidents may mean more lawsuits and greater costs, even when you prevail.
The best way to encourage passengers to hold the handrail is to allow them to see your Clearwin escalator handrail UV sanitizer at work. It instills in them the confidence that holding the handrail is safe. That helps protect you from the fallout of injuries and possible court actions.
