Raydiant Announces New Covid-Friendly, Anti-Microbial Touch Screens And Interactive Digital Signage For Retail

In late May, the CDC declared that surface transmission of Covid-19 is not a major pathway for contagion. That’s great news for retailers who are encouraging shoppers to interact with products and screens in brick-and-mortar stores. Interactive retail displays are being used to reduce sales associate interaction, increase store foot traffic, automate transactions and market products, and interactive digital retail has only increased during Covid. However, as shoppers adapt to Covid fears and information, retailers are taking every opportunity to make shopping spaces safer and market them to shoppers that way.

Raydiant is pleased to announce our new Covid-friendly self-cleaning interactive touch screens for digital signage. The technology uses a transparent film that you can adhere to the screen like a mobile phone protector and it kills the Covid-19 virus in up to 30 minutes, drastically reducing any potential contamination - even if the risks are low according to the CDC.

The surface continually oxidizes organic contaminants, including viruses and bacteria. Unlike traditional disinfectants and cleaners, the film’s surface uses no poisons, heavy metals or chemicals, and nothing is released from the surface since the nano-crystals are molecularly bonded to the material. The technology captures light as energy and uses it to oxidize the surface at level similar to bleach, without any cleaning products needed at all.

The films are effective for 90 days before needing to be replaced and are extremely cost effective at about $15 per square foot. The film also comes with a decal to help market interactive screens as self-cleaning and safer. And they can be placed on existing touchscreens.


And Raydiant's self-cleaning interactive screens operate just like any other touch screen. There is no degradation in performance or sensing.
