In the 2014 study conducted at the University of Arizona, researchers applied samples of a virus to doorknobs and tabletops.

Within two to four hours, the virus had been picked up by 40 to 60 percent of workers and visitors in the facilities and could be detected on other frequently touched objects.

Why You Should Avoid Door Handle Germs?

According to some estimates, people in industrialized nations spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors. That means people are constantly touching and retouching surfaces, producing fomites in homes, workplaces, health care facilities, and schools.

Each contact has the potential to leave behind and pass along droplets from a sneeze or cough. Surfaces also collect particles that people can emit by just talking or exhaling. These droplets can contain a number of illness-inducing germs.

Do you want to do this all over again?

Don’t Worry, We’ll Handle it

 

How Standard Sanitization Fails to Protect You

Even with standard methods of cleaning, bacteria was proven to be detected on over 20% of door handles.

Up to 30% of surfaces remain potentially contaminated due to the inability of existing disinfectants to effectively rid the handle of all pathogens.

Highly-touch surfaces need to be disinfected on a more frequent basis than minimal touch surfaces.

About UVSet

UVSet Inc is the brainchild of young inventors who looked to make a meaningful contribution to their community by preventing the spread of infection during the Global Pandemic.

In 2020, COVID-19 burst into our lives and the world came to a standstill. Public places were closed. Businesses were shut down. The world went into lockdown in fear that they would catch this new, quickly spreading disease.

That’s when Manish Rangan, Aiman Khan, Humza Sheikh, & Vihan Yerubandi, along with DiscoverSTEM co-founders, Hisham Ahmad & Mirza Faizan came together to innovate a product that would limit the spread of COVID-19 and all other diseases. Months were spent analyzing patterns of disease spread and the threat those patterns posed to the world.

Working backwards, these young innovators first identified the largest congregation of disease spread – door handles. From here, they devised this UV-C light-based system that will reduce the impact of the pandemic and aid the world in returning to normality.

According to a study done by the national science agency of Australia, COVID can last up to 28 days on glass surfaces.

The virus that causes COVID-19 can survive on banknotes, glass and stainless steel for up to 28 days, much longer than the flu virus. Australian researchers said on Monday, highlighting the need for frequent cleaning and handwashing.

Clinically Proven UVC Technology for 99.99% disinfection of Doors

Our Product can be used on most types of door handles with differing Horizontal & Vertical Configurations.

( C & Offset Door Handles Primary Market)

According to a recent study, Covid-19 can survive for 3 Days on Plastic & Metals

I have recently completed my Master’s of Science in Engineering Technology with a concentration in Mechanical Systems at the University of North Texas. Also, I did a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology and additionally, I received a Certificate in Manufacturing Engineering Technologies. Currently, my team and I have launched this  start up, UVSET inc., where we designed a cleaning apparatus for commercial doors, heading as Chief Operations Officer.

From my education, I have learned the technical skills to be utilized in the industry. For my senior capstone project, I helped design a multi-functional Data Acquisition (DAQ) training set for thermo-fluids applications. By applying the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer, an experimental thermo-fluid systems setup can be created to be integrated with the virtual simulation program called LabVIEW.
