Self Disinfecting Door Handle Market to Exhibit Increased Demand in the Coming Years

Posted by Steve Sharma on June 15th, 2022

Door handles in public places act as breeding ground for communicable diseases. Door knobs and handles are full of bacteria from hands after multiple hands touch them. Manual cleaning of handles has been a regular norm; however, the cleaning cannot be at a frequency of 2 people touching the handle.

Since prevention is the only measure that humans can take against communicable diseases, smart gadgets such as self-disinfecting door handles are highly appreciated by the consumers.

A self-disinfecting door handle uses internal sensors and an external aluminum magnetic ring. These sensors get activated each time the door handle is used, triggering a signal to the printed circuit board in order to initiate the disinfecting process.
