ECOLIGHTING developed UV sterilisation box to disinfect daily use objects within 3 minutes

As the country continues to grapple with the lockdown and the term ‘unlock 1’ coming into the picture, it looks like India is gearing up to restart its operations, though with precautions. With an aim to help people protect themselves from getting infected by coronavirus during these changing times, Green Grapes Devices, a Delhi-based digital display solutions startup has developed a product called UV Sterilisation Box for sterilising small-sized objects such as mobile phones, watches, rings, currency, masks, key rings, etc.

Since the coronavirus pandemic spelt out new needs for the people, the startup decided to introduce ‘Covid-19 exclusive devices’ to fight the spread of the virus and set up a separate arm called ‘no touch devices’.
