The problem

According to Public Health England (PHE), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) germs can live on surfaces such as a door handle for hours, with some viruses up to 3 days. Regardless of whether you keep your hands clean, it only takes one person to contaminate a door handle and put everyone else at risk.

With COVID-19 the NHS estimates that within 2-4 hours of that one person becoming contaminated, 40-60% of workers or visitors could be infected.

It is imperative to keep frequently touched surfaces free of contamination to stop infection before it spreads.

The virus could be detected on 40% to 60% of workers and visitors in the facilities.

The solution

Our Intelligent Mist Technology is an automatic solution that uses a fast-drying mist cloud to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on the handle. By combining isopropanol and quaternary ammonia, the mist kills the germs on the handle all the time, even when the liquid has dried, to stop infection BEFORE it has a chance to spread.

The device is easy to install, easy to maintain and crucially, doesn’t rely on human behaviour. When human error is removed, you can be confident that door handles will never be a source of cross contamination.

The 99point9 is a cost effective, automated device that kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses all the time.

Strengthening the healthy hygiene cycle

Screens, sanitizer stations and touchless appliances are big steps towards creating a healthy hygiene cycle, but as soon as any door is opened or closed, that cycle is broken and the effort and investment wasted. The 99point9 automatically completes the cycle of healthy hygiene by constantly fighting infection where it is most likely to spread.

Businesses must take a holistic approach to hygiene safety. Implementing sensible, rational measures that work for them are key to creating a healthy cycle without weak spots. Each business is unique, but every business has doors that are often overlooked as a weak spot that threaten healthy hygiene. To strengthen the cycle, a solution that is automated for fail-safe reliability, cost-effective and confidence building is a must have for every business.

The clean washroom experience begins and ends with the door handle

The most frequently used doors in any building are public bathroom doors. The 99point9 revolutionizes the washroom experience.

Restrooms have become more automated in response to the public demand for greater convenience, safer waste disposal and an improved hygienic environment. Automation reduces the spread of infection caused by unclean hands.

However, a 2007 observational study sponsored by the American Society for Microbiology found that only 75% of men and 77% of women actually washed their hands in public restrooms.

And beyond simply “rinsing hands off,” a University of Arizona professor of microbiology noted in his own study that of those that do wash their hands in public restrooms, only 33% use soap and only 16% wash their hands long enough.

Without the 99point9, every hygienic precaution you take in the restroom becomes completely negated the second you touch the door handle to exit.

Our medical board

99point9’s Medical Advisory Board, comprising of three leading specialists in Employee Healthcare, Microbiology and Infectious Disease and Environmental Health, was appointed in 2007 to advise the company on scientific matters and procedures and to ensure that its products and systems are highly effective and safe.
