Hyosung Announces Industry-Leading Disinfection Protection for ATMs

IRVING, Texas–([1])–The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened public demand for enhanced user experiences. Hyosung America, the North American market share leader and fastest-growing ATM manufacturer, is announcing industry-leading disinfection protection for the company’s ATMs to help fight against the spread of infectious diseases including COVID-19, and to help ease consumers’ safety concerns with using ATMs.

“The well-being of our ATM users is of the utmost importance, and we began working as soon as the pandemic arrived to design a solution to maximize the safety of our ATMs,” said Hyosung America CEO Hee-Eun Ahn. “Hyosung wanted to provide a comprehensive solution to address concerns today as well as into the future.”

Starting this fall, disinfection upgrade kits will be available for Hyosung ATMs. Each disinfection upgrade kit will be installed by certified technicians and include the following features:

  • Silver Ion Antimicrobial Touchscreen
  • Silver Ion Antimicrobial Keypad (plus function keys if required)
  • Violet Blue LED Sterilization Lights

Utilizing silver ion technology, which provides a 99.9% microbe growth reduction rate, Hyosung’s antimicrobial touchscreen and keypad upgrades are made from EPA-approved products that provide permanent protection by continuously inhibiting the growth of microbes such as bacteria, fungi and viruses.

For further protection, the upgrade kit will also feature violet blue LED lights to disinfect the most common ATM touchpoints including the touchscreen and keypad, providing 99% sterilization. Violet blue LED light was selected because unlike UV light, it is harmless to humans and is already commonly used as a disinfectant in the medical field. This unique two-step approach provides superior protection for Hyosung ATM users.

In addition to the disinfection upgrade kits, Hyosung is announcing a new service for existing ATMs to apply a temporary antimicrobial coating that will protect ATM surfaces. Certified technicians will apply the coating to ensure the ATM continues to function properly, and recommend reapplying after six months.

Unlike solutions promoted by others, Hyosung’s disinfection solutions are easily implemented and do not change how the user interacts with the ATM. Offering the broadest coverage and longest-lasting protection, Hyosung has developed the most comprehensive approach for ATM safety in the industry.

“These solutions underscore Hyosung’s unique value proposition in the ATM industry as the owner of our intellectual property, design and manufacturing,” said Ahn. “This ownership allows us to quickly respond to changes in user behavior and the market.”
