The walk-in systems provide individuals with a touch-free experience and can sanitise them within a five-second time frame
Spotted: Mumbai-based retail décor firm, Surreal Design Studio, has created sanitising tunnels and booths that can be used at the entrance of high-density public hotspots. These walk-in systems provide individuals with a touch-free experience and can sanitise them within a five-second time frame. They are fitted with an integrated supply and drainage system to ensure no spillage or maintenance issues. With social distancing measures in place, the tunnels allow for approximately 750 walk-ins per hour.
The systems come in two styles: a tunnel model and a booth model, which have three design variants each. The two styles differ in their length, the number of sprinklers and their liquid tank capacity. The tunnel model is the larger of the two — is eight feet long, has six sprinklers and a tank capacity of 175 litres.
Special features such as facial recognition screens, temperature mapping devices and automated hand sanitizer can be incorporated into the models upon a client’s request.
The studio has assured that the disinfectant liquid, referred to as Rajata Bhasma, is chemical-free and 100 per cent safe. Consisting of Silver Nanoparticles, which are free from alcohol and chemicals, it is the world’s first Ayurvedic disinfectant.
Prototyping for the products is now complete, and clients can have access to the actual product, which has been approved by healthcare industry experts.
