Series 57 – New with Clean Touch® Coating Available

The antimicrobial-coated door opening pushbuttons from EAO reduce the build-up and growth of bacteria – for more safety in public areas.

Concerns about the spread of germs and bacteria in public transport are steadily increasing and are exacerbated by pandemics and ongoing urbanization.

Increased hygiene measures are needed for passenger access or toilet facilities, as common physical touch points can accelerate the spread of bacteria in public spaces. Cleaning and disinfection intervals are time-related, which is why the concentration of germs and consequently also the risk of infection depends on the frequency of the intervals.

Clean Touch®

To meet these requirements, which will continue to increase in the future, EAO is introducing the Clean Touch® label. Clean Touch® stands symbolically for EAO’s HMI solutions for increased hygiene requirements. The aim is to reduce concerns about contact through innovation and to create more safety in public spaces.

As the first product variant, the Series 57 door opening pushbutton is available with a Clean Touch® coating. With this pushbutton, both the plastic front bezels and the plastic symbol carrier are provided with an advanced, antimicrobial coating. The included additive effectively reduces the build-up and growth of bacteria, which has been proven in independent tests.


  • Additional protection besides regular cleaning and disinfection intervals
  • Reduction of bacteria growth by more than 99.99 %
  • Reduction of fear of contact and creation of safety in public spaces
  • Resistance of the Clean Touch® coating to known cleaning agents and weather conditions
  • Compliance with the European regulation for biocidal products (BPR) of the additive used

Typical Applications

  • Public transport, such as rail vehicles and buses
  • Public buildings and infrastructure, such as electric doors, elevators, and toilets
