Hello, this is WeClean, premium disinfection(steriliazation) and cleaning system for escalator handrails.


December 2021

WeClean has completed the third additional installation at the stations of Seoul Subway Lines 1 to 8 operated by Seoul Metro.

 

As in the past, the escalators installed with WeClean are both glass type and stainless type, and the width varies from 800 mm to 1200mm.


The installed WeClean model is S200L-G (Self-powered hybrid premium type).


Since the COVID-19 pandemic, surface disinfection of multi-use facilities has been periodically mandatory.

It is said that the subway stations of Seoul Metro, which are used by an average of 7,469,180 people per day (as of 2019), are disinfecting and cleaning the escalator handrails 4 to 10 times a day since COVID-19.

It is not uncommon to see officials manually cleaning and disinfecting escalator handles using disinfectant and hand rags.


The important point here is the vacuum of manual disinfection via manpower, that is, the continuity of maintaining the disinfection state.

In a situation where an unspecified number of citizens are repeatedly boarding, one person on each escalator cannot stand still at the edge of the ramp to continue disinfecting.


Not only does WeClean automatically perform the same human spraying and wiping of the disinfectant, but the disinfectant spray cycle can be set from 1 to 60 minutes, so the handle can be kept sterile throughout the operating time.


In addition, even the inefficient effort of cleaning the surface of the handrail every time even after installing a simple UV sterilizer is solved by the 3-stage washing roller.


WeClean's patented 3-stage cleaning roller automatically cleans every nook and cranny of the surface by rotating in the reverse/forward direction according to the rotation of the handrail.


The fact that cleaning alone reduces germs can also be found in guidelines from health agencies such as the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and WHO.


As an automatic sterilization cleaner for handrails, WeClean is also a smart device equipped with IoT functions, with 99.99% sterilization power proven by numerous actual field test results and a cleaning function that does not require additional beautification personnel.


Through the IoT platform developed by ourselves, all WeClean products around the world are monitored in real time, and the disinfectant spray cycle is also remotely controlled.


In addition, content suitable for each installation customer and site is uploaded easily and conveniently through this platform.


Thank you, this is Weclean :)
