Handrails are a surface that we all touch as we move about cities and buildings – and they’re especially important for passengers that need extra support and help with their mobility. Keeping them clean and reducing the bacteria and viruses that can build up on them is essential. Schindler Ultra UV and Ultra UV Pro do just that with an innovative and effective UV-C system.
The system is automatic and reduces bacteria and viruses, providing effective protection during normal operation.
Thanks to UV-C LED light technology, handrails are disinfected efficiently and in an environmentally friendly way.
The Ultra UV or Ultra UV Pro device is installed discretely inside your escalator or moving walk with a very simple installation process.
The Ultra UV and Ultra UV Pro offer physical disinfection with no harmful chemicals or heavy metal residue.
The Schindler Ultra UV device uses germicidal UV-C light to treat the handrails. This light damages DNA(1) and RNA(2), the genetic materials of bacteria and viruses, helping to prevent their spread. Thanks to the physical disinfection process using UV-C LED lighting technology, handrails are disinfected efficiently and in an environmentally friendly way.
The device is installed inside the escalator or moving walk quickly and easily. The Schindler handrail Ultra UV is a practical solution to help prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses.
UV-C light is invisible. The red light in the image serves as an operation indicator.
The Ultra UV Pro device works similarly to the standard Ultra UV device, but operates with more UV-C lights, providing an efficient level of disinfection for heavily used escalators.
