Self-cleaning Elevator Button / Good Health and Wellbeing

Self-cleaning Elevator Button

During the COVID-19 pandemic period,disinfection of public elevators is an important way to avoid virus transmission. The spherical self-cleaning button is a button used in elevators for disinfection. This design uses rolling balls instead of traditional keys. When the user scrolls the ball of the keys, the exposed part of the key is turned to the back and the touched part is disinfected inside to clean themselves by the disinfection consumables. This design only requires regular replacement of internal disinfection consumables, which can ensure adequate disinfection and commute safety in the post-epidemic period.
