Ways include proximity and thermal sensors, air purification systems and aerosol dispensers
To make handrails free from any pathogens and to prevent the disease transmission at all times, Thyssenkrupp Elevator (India) has launched a high intensity UV sanitizing unit. These units automatically sanitize every inch of the escalator handrail on every pass, to make it safe for everyone.
It is also developing smart and user-friendly touchless elevator calling solutions such as proximity sensor based solution, QR code based solution, and bluetooth based solution.
Its UV disinfection and nano- photocatalyst technology- based air purification solution eliminates up to 99.99% of airborne pathogens. This option is available for most cabins as a straightforward upgrade of existing air conditioning circuits, or as a quick-to-install independent air purification system.
Another solution is an unobtrusive infrared thermal camera, which monitors each passenger’s body temperature as they enter the cabin. This triggers alerts that can also enable building management to track and notify passengers who may be unwell.
Its aerosol disinfectant dispenser can be programmed to operate during working hours to sanitize the elevator cabin. By regularly delivering a safe antiviral and anti-bacterial spray, a clean and secure environment for passengers can be maintained at all times.
