TOUCH / Escalator Handrail Sterilizer

TOUCH

iF concept design award 2013

iF concept design award 2013

There is a wide variety of different bacteria that can often be found on the handrail of an escalator. E.coli, viridian streptococcus and the candida virus are the main bacteria detected here. Many people try not to touch the handrail when they are using an escalator, and this can lead to accidents. 'Touch' is a system that sterilizes dirty handrails. It also visualizes the sterilization process for the users, so people can use the escalator and touch the handrail with confidence.

Stay hungry, Stay foolish

Thank you.
