LIFTMART: Dubai’s leading Elevator and Escalator Innovator


People in cities like Dubai, UAE where getting back to work during this time of pandemic may
mean taking a number of elevator rides per day, to and from their office spaces
⁠— travelling without any safety measures in place, elevators have
a high probability to become hot spots of COVID-19 spread as data suggests.

These days, commercial elevators are necessary, but how can you be sure of the safety of
your passengers in such confined spaces? You may be cleaning the contact or
touch points, but have you ever thought about disinfecting the air to protect
yourself more against the bacteria, viruses, and mold? These are questions that
will likely be on everyone’s mind in light of COVID-19, especially when it
comes to confined spaces where social distancing cannot be observed.

Disinfecting the air was proven effective against a host of airborne and surface-level
pathogens, including viruses, mold, bacteria, odors and volatile organic
compounds (VOCs). Although this specific disinfection technique was not especially
developed for COVID-19, the technology has time and again proven effective
against similar viruses, such as SARS and H1N1.

“Elevators tend to create an area for a social distancing situation impossible,” he said. “This
technology will help create another layer and level of risk mitigation.”

Elevator Air Sterilizer provides All-round disinfection and purification of elevator air and walls constantly purifies the air of the elevator and has a disinfection rate of 99%. It is a small 30cm x 7cm box that is installed in the ceiling of the elevator cabin.

Escalator UVC LED Sanitizer is fixed underneath the escalator and as the escalator belt passes through the bottom of the escalator it will be sanitized.

Touchless buttons are also available to install in the Elevator lobby and inside the elevator cabin. Thus, to stop physical contact and prevention of contamination.

Any of our available vertical transportation equipment includes regularly touched surfaces
and as such, the elevator industry has acknowledged that building professionals
need new options for safely transporting the tenants of their buildings. State-of-the-art
solutions have been developed including kick-to-call buttons, UVC light
sanitization, voice-activated control buttons, and more that each presents a creative
alternative to help facility management and riders feel safer in elevator
spaces. For all of us navigating life differently in the wake of COVID-19,
building owners may want to consider the possibility of modernization projects
to implement these technologies wherever possible.

New technology are able to provide elevator ride as safe and touch-free as possible, but there
are still factors such as human behaviors that will impact how safe we all are
in this new world. This includes the practicing of social distancing in
elevator cabs as well as the routine cleaning/maintenance of equipment.
Physical distancing will be keeping us apart for some time, so it is important
that facility professionals understand recommendations such as these. A
standard elevator cab, for example, will allow for maybe two —or three —
passengers to maintain appropriate physical distance, which may mean
slow-moving lines in the lobby on your way to the office.

The Most Common preventive measures are:

  1. Elevator Air Sterilizer or Escalator Handrail Santizier
  2. Daily Cleaning of Cabin Walls
  3. Practice Social Distancing
  4. Touchless Elevator Buttons.
  5. Refrain from talking
  6. Do not lean on walls
