EHC Global Launches LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Solution for Escalators and Moving Walks

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April 20, 2020 (Oshawa, Canada) ─ EHC Global (EHC), a leading manufacturer of components, technical services and integrated solutions to the vertical transportation industry, is pleased to announce the introduction of its LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Solution for escalators and moving walks. The compact LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Module is mounted internally, which provides several key advantages over externally mounted devices. These benefits include the elimination of risks and costs associated with entrapment (fingers, clothing, etc.), damage caused by impact, vandalism, theft, unnecessary downtime, and the obstruction of ingress and egress access on escalators and moving walks.

 

EHC initially introduced the LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Module to industry partners in 2018. In response to the growing demand for enhanced cleanliness, antimicrobial protection and disinfection of high-traffic touch points such as handrails on escalators and moving walks, EHC has ramped up commercial production and availability of the LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Module in key markets. These vertical transportation devices are relied upon by millions of people everyday in public transit systems, airports, hospitals, shopping malls, office buildings, convention centers, sports venues, and other urban spaces around the world.

 

Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) utilizing UV-C technology has been proven to be effective against pathogens such as bacteria and viruses, by penetrating their cells and damaging the DNA or RNA that contain their genetic code. When properly installed by a licensed technician, the LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Module will not compromise the structural integrity, performance or warranty of NT thermoplastic polyurethane or TufFlex rubber handrail.

 

“EHC Global is committed to helping to make the world a better place by developing products and delivering technical services and integrated solutions that are a reflection of excellence and enhance passenger safety and customer experience,” and Patrick Bothwell, Vice President of Sales. “UV-C Handrail Sterilization combined with NT AMRail Antimicrobial Handrail, EHC Cleaner and Polish, and SafeGuard Signage offers a multi-pronged solution, identifying to escalator riders that the handrail surface is protected.”

 

Safety+ is an integrated solution and suite of products and services specifically designed to mitigate risk, meet safety code requirements, and promote safe and responsible use of escalators and moving walks. In addition to the LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Module, the Safety+ portfolio includes NT+ Handrail Solutions (AMRail, SafeRail, and MotionRail), Safety Signage, Deck Barricades, Safety Brushes, Automated Messaging System, The Virtual Assistant, Antimicrobial Handrail Film, and Service Barricades.

EHC Global’s ADRail™ Handrail Solution Featured in New Balance Training Footwear and Apparel In-Store Campaign

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ADRail™ Escalator Handrail Technology Enhances New Balance Training’s Tactile Branding Experience at Sports Experts Flagship Store in Downtown Montréal

May 22, 2018 (Oshawa, Canada) ─ EHC Global (EHC), a leading manufacturer of components and integrated solutions to the vertical transportation industry, is pleased to announce that New Balance Athletics, Inc. has recently implemented EHC’s patented ADRail™ escalator handrail film platform as part of their current interactive and hands-on New Balance Training branding campaign at the Sports Experts flagship store in downtown Montréal, Canada. The installation of the ADRail™ campaign was managed and executed by Time2Ad Inc., EHC’s exclusive Canadian ADRail™ licensee.

The New Balance Training footwear and apparel campaign was launched on January 25 and features EHC’s patented ADRail™ handrail film technology. ADRail™ is installed directly over the escalator handrail by an EHC-trained and certified technician. The installation and removal process is quick (approximately 60 minutes to install and less than 30 minutes to remove) and does not compromise the performance or service life of the escalator handrail. To date, EHC and its global network of licensees have completed over two thousand ADRail™ installations worldwide.

“ADRail™ was specifically developed by EHC Global for short-term advertising, branding and safety campaigns on escalators and moving walks within retail environments, convention centres, shopping malls, airports and other public spaces,” says Jeno Eppel, President and Chief Executive Officer of EHC. “Our innovative and proven ADRail™ solution can literally transform a ubiquitous black handrail into an attention-grabbing, dynamic and memorable tactile branding experience.”

Additional New Balance Training campaign elements include custom graphics on the escalator balustrades, footwear display tables in all Sports Experts locations, a digital campaign streamed on Sports Experts-owned channels, and custom NB Training videos that will be run in-store on digital screens and on social media channels.

“For New Balance, branding a prominent (and unconventional) section of retail space within this experiential store format with EHC’s innovative ADRail™ solution provided an opportunity to delight consumers, adding a tactile branding element to the overall Training campaign,” says Mark Wasserman, Marketing Manager of New Balance Athletics, Inc. “The larger than life activation allows consumers to see and engage with our brand and get inspired on their path to purchase, and adds to other great consumer activations like the NB Stride I.D. 3D foot scanning technology which is situated on the third floor.”

In May 2017, Sports Experts (www.sportsexperts.ca) officially reopened its downtown Montréal store on the corner of Sainte-Catherine and Mansfield. The $10-million investment included the addition of a third floor, the modernization of two existing escalators and the integration of the latest technologies, including smart mirrors equipped with motion sensors, an indoor track, a New Balance shoe lab, and multiple HD video walls. The 60,000-square-foot store is now the largest Sports Experts store in Quebec. A division of FGL Sports Ltd., Sports Experts has been the go-to retailer for active Quebecers for nearly 50 years and features more than 105 stores in the province.

EHC Global is a proud and long-standing provider of escalator handrail and other lift solutions to leading sporting goods brands and retailers around the world including Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Champs Sports, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Foot Locker, Mike Sport, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Nike, Scheels, Sport Chek, Sportarena, Under Armour and Viladomat.
