It is no secret that 2020 has been overshadowed by the coronavirus pandemic and the importance of cleanliness is something that cannot be understated. After all, we are all much more aware of the way that viruses spread and how easy it can be to catch one. Here at Elevators Ltd, we believe that lifts should be afforded the same level of hygiene as a door handle or a worktop because they are used by dozens of people every day. Read on as we go over a handful of systems that are often implemented in order to keep an elevator clean…
An elevator cabin is an enclosed space and this means that we are constantly breathing the same air as fellow passengers. An air purifier ensures that this air is constantly cleaned and that any harmful particles that can carry disease or viruses are removed. They can be mounted on the walls or ceiling of the cabin with ease and simplicity.
As technology improves, our ability to adapt elevator interiors for cleanliness only gets better too. UV lamps are intelligent pieces of technology that rely on motion sensors and have a 99% sterilisation efficiency. Plus, they create no ozone damage and can be installed on the ceiling of the cabin in a very short space of time.
Viruses spread through the things we touch which is why it is important to wash your hands throughout the day. With this said, touchless elevator buttons are a new and innovative piece of technology that can change the way that elevator cleanliness is approached altogether. They are motion enabled with a 10-metre capability and use infrared signals in order to send the information throughout the system.
Aside from routinely cleaning down the surface of an elevator and wiping the buttons with an antibacterial wash, it can also be beneficial to invest in hygiene focused technology too. After all, voice recognition can do wonders for both cleanliness and disability accessibility. For all your lift maintenance London needs, get in contact with a member of the Elevators Ltd team today!
