Self-Sanitising Door Handle

This handle minimises the risk of contact with harmful pathogens when touching public doors.

The cylindrical, transparent handle is coated in a titanium oxide , a coating that is reactive to light and can safely break down any pathogens. A custom-designed generator provides electricity to a UV LED lamp embedded in the handle. This lights up whenever the handle is moved to open or close the door. The coating is durable and stable, meaning it will not degenerate on contact with bleach or sterilising chemicals.

Designed by Sum Ming Wong and Kin Pong Li.
