To respond to their customers’ needs in the new normal, KONE has partnered with Kastus to provide antiviral and antibacterial protection for the touch displays in their elevator interfaces with Kastus self-sanitizing screen protectors. The first roll out of this program will be in Singapore.
Kastus’ patented light-powered technology works in light and dark conditions and is independently proven to offer 3-in-1 protection against Human Coronavirus, traditional viruses, and surface bacteria with 99%+ kill rates. Kastus’ premium tempered glass screen protectors are easy to install and can be retrofitted to any type of touchscreen display up to 34” diameter.
Dario Ravarro, KONE Technical Sales Support Manager, APA, said:
“As more and more people are going back to office, there were concerns from customers on whether their tenants would feel safe when coming into contact with commonly-used interfaces such as elevator controls. Kastus’ interface products are able to provide a hygienic solution, which not only reduces the need for frequent cleaning of surface, but also protects the display against abrasion and scratches.”
Darragh O’Connor, Kastus VP Global Marketing said:
“The ongoing concerns regarding cross-contamination is a reality in the covid-19 era. We are proud to offer an antiviral and antibacterial protection, which starts working immediately against viruses and bacteria on first contact, delivering safer surfaces for shared touchscreens such as modern elevator interfaces. We are delighted to announce our partnership with KONE bringing this seamless solution to their users through our screen protectors.”
