Consumer electronics brand Havells has expanded its product portfolio in India. The company has introduced antiviral and antibacterial switches under the Crabtree Switch area.
The new switches are equipped with ViruzSafeTM technology, which, according to the company, can destroy 92.5% of viruses on the surface of the switch. “Depending on the degree of effectiveness and time frame, antiviral measures ensure that the viruses are not transmitted to the user by touching switches,” says the company.
The antiviral switch range is offered at a starting price of Rs 75. They can be purchased through both online and offline stores across the country.
The switches are said to be ideal for households, offices and hospitals to reduce the transmission of viruses, bacteria and pathogens through switches.
Crabtree switches are intended to be safely manufactured in the food industry and not to use cytotoxic material. They are ROHS compliant. According to Havells, the switches are tested by third-party laboratories according to standards such as ISO, JIS, IP 20, etc.
