sterilization handle / subway handle

sterilization handle

Passengers can roll the handle into the sterilization tube. In the tube there is an ultraviolet lamp that can sterilize the handle. Above the handle, there is a button that can be pressed to spray a small amount of 75% concentration alcohol. The alcohol can evaporate easily, so it will not remain on the handle.

Each passenger who wants to use the handle can rotate the handle to let the ultraviolet lamp sterilize it and then press the button to spray some alcohol. The handle will be clean each time it passes through the sterilization tube.
