SMART ELEVATOR UV-C DISINFECTION
THE POWER OF UV-C
75+ YEARS OF TRUST
UV disinfections systems have already been widely used in hospitals for over 75 years to effectively sterilize the most stubborn of pathogens.
UV-C light is germicidal – i.e., it deactivates the DNA of bacteria, virus and other pathogens and thus destroys their ability to multiply and cause disease.
Elevators, a weak point in our travels
40 Times More Bacteria
Elevators carry 40 times more bacteria than public toilet seats according to a study from the University of Arizona
Elevators make 18 Billion passenger trips per year
On average each elevator carries 20,000 people per year per elevator
Viruses like Covid-19 last on steel and plastic for 3 days
After someone sneezes, coughs or speaks loudly Covid-19 can remain airborne for up to 3 hours
The light system is installed inside the elevators and activated when the infrared system detects no human presence inside. Sweeping the area with penetrating UV rays and killing all virus and bacteria inside both airborne and on surfaces. The system needs to only run for 10-15 min intervals
