Overview of innovation
The UV-C TOWER is a purpose-built commercial unit for various
screening applications with the goal of providing peace-of-mind to both
employers, employees and customers by reducing the risk of infection
through effective temperature screening and sterilization of personal
The unit is designed to detect the face, record temperature and thereafter
allow the user to sanitize hand-held items such as cellphones, keys and
PPE masks and more in a 30 second burst using effective UV-C Ultraviolet
This simple operation involves placing items on the tray inside the box,
moving a hand over the touchless IR sensor on the side to activate the
