Self Sanitizing Door Handle
Research shows that door handles are one of the most highly contaminated areas of a building. Without regular disinfection arrangements, the risks for cross-contamination of different diseases between the public increases and puts their health at danger.
Our approach was to design a new type of door handle that would disinfect itself from any pathogens. It uses a UVC light which is housed inside of a clear anti-fingerprint tube. As the light turns on, it uses a proximity sensor to detect any person nearby and then turns off.
