STER / escalator sterilization clean

STER
STER

The surface of the escalator handrails in the public place is filled with bacteria because many people have touched it daily. This design is a sanitizer for the escalator handrails in public places. It cleans the surface of the handrails consistently after each use. The cleanser has a sensing device that detects passenger. The cleanser will start cleaning to ensure the handrail is clean before next one touches it. While the machine is operating, the liquid disinfectant sprays the sponge roll which is then wiping the surface of the handrails as it rotates. The sponge and liquid can be replaced the disinfectant.
