i3-Technologies’ displays are meant to be touched. Now, more than ever, it’s essential to adopt proper hygienic practices.
Which product to use
The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention recommends to use an alcohol solution consisting of 70% isopropyl alcohol and 30% water, as a disinfectant. This is also known as rubbing alcohol.
How to wipe off, wipe out
Please follow these steps to clean and disinfect the external surface of your devices:
Wear disposable latex gloves, or nitrile gloves if you are latex-sensitive.
Turn off the device and disconnect the power cable. Remove the batteries from items like remotes. Never clean a product while it is powered on or plugged in.
Moisten a microfiber cloth with a mixture of 70% isopropyl alcohol and 30% water. Do not use fibrous materials, like paper towels or toilet paper. The cloth should be moist, but not dripping wet.
Gently wipe the moistened cloth on the surfaces to be cleaned, in
circular movements. Do not allow any moisture to drip into areas like USB ports and other openings , as moisture entering the inside of an electronic product can cause extensive damage to the product.
Start with the display, move to the back of the device and end with the cables.
Ensure surfaces have completely air-dried before turning the device on after cleaning. No moisture should be visible on the surfaces of the product before it is powered on.
Gloves should be discarded after each cleaning. Clean hands immediately after gloves are removed.
Instructions for safe handling
It is important to handle isopropyl alcohol in a safe manner at all times.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing.
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Use with adequate ventilation.
Store in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep container tightly closed.
In the event of contact with isopropyl alcohol, wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.
What not to use
Many common household cleaners and disinfectants can damage electronic products. Do not use any of the following chemicals or any solutions that contain them, including spray-based surface cleaners: bleach, peroxides, acetone, ammonia, ethyl alcohol, methylene chloride or any petroleum-based materials, such as gasoline, paint thinner, benzene or toluene.
How often a device should be cleaned
i3-Technologies recommends cleaning your devices a maximum of 3-5 times per day.
Excessive cleaning of your device with any cleaning solution can lead to potential wear on components.
Note: Customers may experience some visible changes to cosmetic finishes over time as a result of the cleaning techniques mentioned in this document.
Of course, not only the screen itself should be hygienic. The cleaner the hands are that touch the device, the less diseases can spread. Invite users to wash their hands before using the screen, and provide a disinfectant gel in its vicinity.
