HS Cleaner / Cleaner

HS Cleaner

HS Cleaner ensures people take elevators with Health and Safety.
Many public places are equipped with escalators.When customer flow is large,people use escalator handrails frequently.So there is much bacteria on the handrails,which causes cross-infection easily.However,not using handrails leads to security threat.
HS Cleaner sterilizes handrails by means of UV disinfection.It consists of a UV light and a pipeline.When a handrail moves forward automatically,the UV light in the pipeline irradiates every part of it and makes efficient disinfection.It does not need any chemical cleaner or water,and people just do as they did before.
