E.E: What’s the news about new products?

F.lli Razeto & Casareto: The pandemic has given impetus to the development of new products, intended to stop the spread of pathogens, and this has led to the creation of antiviral handles that are effective against bacteria, fungi, and viruses (including coronavirus), tested and certified by the virology laboratories of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, together with the universities of Genova and Siena. All this in compliance with the additional note of class biosafe ship of RINA (Italian naval register), with reference to surfaces with high utilization rate.

The company has recently developed an Integrated Intelligent Access System equipped with luminous handles with security functions, which indicate safe escape routes in critical situations. For example, on a cruise ship, during a fire, safe escape routes shall be illuminated with green light, while escape routes lit with red light shall indicate the danger.

Similarly, in a scenario of pleasure boating, the same Access System takes on interesting management functions by marking not to disturb, whether a room is free or busy, or waiting to be cleaned, or report to the bridge the presence of open doors before sailing.

These systems lend themselves to endless possibilities of use.
