The coronavirus is putting health systems in check and of course to the economy of many countries. Despite the fact that we still do not know many things about COVID-19, we are all clear that it is a respiratory disease that is spread through drops in the air, which come from the cough or sneeze of an infected person (from there the sneeze slogan on the elbow). Viral particles are also known to survive for a time on surfaces. How long? Well that depends on several factors, such as temperature and humidity. At the moment the experts point out that it can last “from hours to a day”, although some even speak of a duration of up to five days.
Given this extensive strip, it is not surprising that extra cleaning is always relevant, hence the invention of these Frenchmen comes to the hair: it is about Skoon, a knob that is disinfected every time someone uses it. And so, the next person who passes by will find it disinfected and without the possibility of any bacteria remaining on their hand. And, according to a study carried out in the neighboring country, one in three French people does not wash their hands when they go to the bathroom.
Skoon Smart Handle is like a conventional door knob with the only difference that it has a discreet ring (there are different colors) that moves through the knob after each use. As it travels, the ring releases a disinfectant and a degreaser, allowing it to neutralize germs and dirt, says the manufacturer.
Be careful, to be able to use it, the door knob must be like the one seen in the images, which are usually the usual ones in hotels, health centers, bathrooms, etc. In fact, the company, as the product is in the launch phase, is seeking agreements with hotels, restaurants, public institutions, hospitals, schools, etc … Although the product is also available to individuals.
For the ring to work A 9-volt battery is enough and the product is recharged with an applicator: one dose is sufficient for several days, according to the manufacturing company.
How did the idea for this anti-dirt ring come about? The idea was born when one of the founders, Philippe Chaussard, had to use a door knob that was in a sorry state (despite being in a luxury hotel). And is that dirt, bacteria and viruses do not know of luxury or social class.
