The current COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the relevance of the issue of hygiene, even in previously underestimated risk areas such as the lift. A holistic crisis management must also deal with the avoidance of transmission paths in and around the lift. This must start at the very beginning of the process chain, with the product design (of the lift and the lift components).
The hygiene of lift systems can be significantly influenced by the design, the choice of materials and components, as well as organisational and technical measures. For this purpose, SCHAEFER develops criteria and test procedures for the evaluation as well as environment- and application-specific selection of suitable measures and for the verification of their effectiveness.
