ThyssenKrupp Elevator Partners with Microban Antimicrobial Protection on Elevator Buttons
ThyssenKrupp Elevator, the world’s premier manufacturer, installer and service provider of vertical and horizontal transportation, is the exclusive provider of elevator fixtures featuring built-in Microban antimicrobial product protection. All of ThyssenKrupp Elevator’s new construction projects will utilize Microban technology in control buttons.
“Microban protection fights the growth of microbes that can cause stains and odors on surfaces,” said Stuart Prior, executive vice president, Americas Product Sales & Marketing, COO Latin America & Brazil. “Most multi-level office tenants touch an elevator button at least eight times a day. Microban protection will keep elevator buttons cleaner in between cleanings. We hope our new product will contribute to the cleanliness of the buildings we serve.”
ThyssenKrupp Elevator chose Microban because of its durability and proven effectiveness around the world. The active ingredients are guaranteed to last for the life of the product. Because Microban protection is built in, it won’t wash off or wear away.
“In today’s society, there is a heightened level of concern surrounding microbes, whether at the office, in a shopping mall or at home,” said Kathy Hall, Microban International, vice president of marketing. “ThyssenKrupp Elevator shares our commitment to the added level of defense provided by Microban antimicrobial protection.”
