If the situation does not allow avoiding the use of the elevator, it is recommended to travel alone or that people do not occupy more than 30% of the surface of the elevator car, so that it is possible to keep a distance between passengers. In addition, you should avoid engaging in conversation, looking towards the wall of the place.

Users have begun to wonder if there is a risk of contagion in the use of elevators. In a pandemic time, society has begun to be more cautious, concerned, and careful about the hygiene that it has to respect in its normal routine. Neighbors living in multi-storey buildings that require daily use of the elevator have begun to question the possibility of the virus spreading there.
The recommendations of the experts have asked people to use the stairs as much as possible, avoiding the use of the elevator, since it is a small space, shared with other passengers, closed and with very little ventilation.
In the same way, you must be very careful when requesting and pressing the button of the floor you want to get to, since the surface could be infected. Therefore, it is recommended that a careful hand washing and alcohol disinfectant be used to avoid any contagion after use.For their part, the cleaning staff of each building must take special care when cleaning the booths, focusing on mirrors, buttons, and surfaces that may become more in contact with people.
At Alamex we care about your safety, which is why we have the newest air purification technology that helps reduce the transmission of viruses and bacteria. Our cabin air sterilizer completely disinfects and purifies the elevator walls.
