Clean Button / Elevator Button

Clean Button
Clean Button

Due to the outbreak of the 2019-nCoV virus, people are paying more and more attention to the health and safety of public places. This design is mainly designed for elevator buttons so that it can automatically disinfect the buttons. When the passenger presses the button, the button retracts, the door closes, and ultraviolet disinfection begins. When the elevator arrives, the cleaning button will rise and wait for the next passenger to use it. This design can achieve one-to-one disinfection, which has a great effect on the prevention and control of contact infectious diseases, and also greatly reduces the workload of disinfection personnel.
