Designed for disinfection – Hubbell Canada ScrubSwitch sealed switches

September 14, 2023 | By Anthony Capkun

September 14, 2023 – Hubbell’s ScrubSwitch devices help reduce bacteria transmission in high-touch areas, making them suitable for door handles, bedrails, call bells, etc., in healthcare facilities, or other applications with strict cleaning and disinfection procedures.

The switch module is completely sealed against liquids and installs in a standard electrical box. Because of its smooth surface, bacteria have nowhere to hide. Proximity sensing allows users to simply tap on/off, just like a phone, and it works just as well for latex gloved hand, or an elbow in a shirt sleeve.

That said, ScrubSwitch’s design limits accidental activation from vibration, walking past, or standing nearby.
