Clean carts.

THE PATENTED SANICART-UV SYSTEM IS A COMPACT METAL UNIT that uses high-intensity germicidal ultraviolet light technology to destroy the DNA structure of germs, bacteria and viruses found on shopping carts, according to company officials.


The system from SaniCart-UV, based in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, uses a 120-volt receptacle, takes up a small amount of retail floor space and is ideally located at the store's entrance. This innovative product features cart sanitation without the use of any chemicals, detergents, water or wipes and therefore has no wastage left over, according to company executives.

Glenn Davis, CEO of SaniCart-UV, says, "With the recent H1N1 transmission risks from hands that have been coughed or sneezed on, we have looked to develop a system that delivers on all aspects. SaniCart-UV is designed to safely sanitize the cart handle and seat basket areas, which are where most germs lurk and where little children sit."
