Otis Elevator Company | Escalator Sanitizing Products
Advancing technology for today and tomorrow
Our newest escalator products are designed to mitigate risk, meet safety code requirements and promote safe and responsible use of escalators and moving walks.
In addition to investing in sanitization products, we encourage all passengers to follow their local guidelines on social distancing when using escalators and moving walks.
LED UV-C Handrail Sanitizer
UV-C wavelengths effectively sanitize handrail surfaces
Now more than ever, reducing bacteria and keeping shared spaces sanitary is of utmost importance to your riders.
Our LED UV-C Handrail Sanitization module is mounted internally on your escalator handrails to effectively sanitize handrail surfaces.
Fully guided, the handrail passes through the modules as it runs, exposing the handrail to sanitizing UV-C light .
Offer passengers a cleaner experience with handrails that actively kill bacteria
Otis now offers an antimicrobial handrail. Our specialized formula inhibits the growth of bacteria such as E. coli.
Using the same active ingredients found in other cosmetic products, the handrail effectively attacks bacteria which prevents it from spreading.
To give your riders peace of mind, we can also apply antimicrobial symbols to the handrail giving them the confidence they need to ride safely.
