on the lavatory and compartment doors, flush valves of lavatories as well as door latches. The coaches are in AC (air-conditioned) as well as non-AC segments.
Also, forearm-operated handles have been fixed on the compartment doors of AC coaches. The handrails and latches are coated with copper which has anti-microbial properties that weaken the virus in a few hours. Besides, AC ducts of the coaches have been enabled with plasma equipment to sterilise the air and surfaces.
The use of ionised air makes the coaches resistant to viruses and particulate matter, said railways general manager Ravinder Gupta.
“Nano titanium dioxide coating has been applied on the coaches. The water-based coating kills viruses, bacteria, fungi and enhances indoor air quality.
Titanium dioxide is considered to be a safe substance and is harmless to humans. The coating has been applied on washbasins, lavatories, seats, berths, snack tables, glass windows, floor and all surfaces that passengers come in contact with during their journey.
Stickers have been pasted in the coaches as a reminder to passengers to observe precautionary measures.
“These coaches may prove to be a milestone in passenger transportation by helping fight the deadly virus,” Gupta added.
