The World’s Only Escalator Handrail Cleaning System

Think Hygiene 

Our patented handrail cleaning system has been shown to increase the life of rubber handrails by safely removing 99.94% of deteriorating bacteria, dirt and grime that breaks down the rubber faster.  Removes dirt and bacteria on handrail and uses less than half the man hours cleaning.


We depend on handrails for balance and safety, but they have been shown to harbor high loads of pathogenic bacteria and viruses. Regular handrail cleaning prevents buildup of dirt and grime, and helps reduce disease transmission. Our microfiber cleaning pads have been proven to remove 99.94 % of bacteria without cross contamination.
