Keeping Handrails Clean So You Can Hold On

Escalator, Spanish for “moving staircase”, is also a hygiene nightmare. Here we have a staircase that moves on it’s own, you’re meant to stand as it takes you up or down and to do so safely we tell our kids to hold onto the handrail. Many don’t follow this advice and the list of injuries grows.

Clearwin and LG have come together to create a product that could have us confidently holding onto the handrails again without digging into some hand sanitiser right after.

A smart little product that clamps onto each side of the moving handrail, this product uses brushes and powerful UV sterilisation to kill bacteria and remove any particles on the handrail before you grab hold.

Good for 10,000 hours before needing maintenance, this will see the end of the cleaner needing to wipe it all down each evening. The little box does not require power either, it is self powered, likely from the movement from the handrail so there is really not much to this nifty product.

Already being seen in various locations such the airport in Taiwan, the Clearwin/LG innovation is a product we’d love to see at all major shopping locations.

Living in Sydney his entire life, Geoff has always had a close eye on technology. Through school and immediately after, tech held his focus. Attending University later in life, Geoff began his IT career immediately after leaving high school and has been in the industry ever since. In his spare time he launched a YouTube channel focused on consumer tech that had millions of views. This led to work on community radio talking tech every week and has now stepped him into the studios of 2GB / 4BC every Saturday helping people with tech problems and reviewing the latest gadgets.

When Geoff is looking away from the screen he can be found holding a glass of red wine, spending time with friends and/or watching the Formula 1.
