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 CleanMobility sanitization solutions available:
The antimicrobial additive to the thermoplastic polyurethane body inhibits the growth of microorganisms on the handrail. The additive is engineered for plastic and textile applications, and is safe in food applications.
* Please note - Schindler CleanRail is not currently available in Canada.
The Schindler handrail Ultra UV (PRO) device uses UVC light to treat the handrails at a short distance. This directly damages DNA and RNA, which are the genetic materials of bacteria, which may help prevent their spread. High-visibility "Schindler CleanMobility“ branding on the balustrade notifies riders of the UV effects.
Thanks to the physical sanitization process using UVC LED lighting technology, handrails are sanitized 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 (PRO) device is a practical solution that may provide invisible sanitization for passengers.
