Contact-free switch for hygienic environments - CleanSwitch

CleanSwitch - BBC Bircher Smart Access

Places where many people are is a source of germs and other pathogens. Contact surfaces – and in particular, door handles – are responsible for spreading vast amounts of bacteria and viruses, some of which can pose a real risk to health. CleanSwitch by BBC Bircher Smart Access provides a contact-free, hygienic method of opening doors. It works by means of a deliberate hand gesture within the detection range of 10 to 50 centimetres – helping to stop germs in their tracks.

Focus on hygiene CleanSwitch for healthcare facilities, sanitary areas and the catering industry - BBC Bircher Smart Access

CleanSwitch has been specifically developed for use in buildings subject to strict hygiene requirements, such as healthcare facilities, sanitary areas and the catering industry.

Contact-free method

It activates entrance points using a contact-free method – a deliberate gesture made by the user – and otherwise keeps doors closed. This helps to prevent the spread of germs. CleanSwitch can also be treated with any standard cleaning agent or disinfectant.

CleanSwitch's visually appealing, straightforward design can be adapted in a whole range of ways to suit customers' preferences. It takes just a few seconds to change the colour, level of brightness and mode of the optical feedback – without tools. Not only that, but Bircher also supplies a wide selection of pictograms that can be printed onto the front of the device to make it even more user-friendly. Customised pictograms and logos can also be applied on request.

Easy installation

The intelligent way in which the system has been designed ensures it is compatible with all standard flush-mounted boxes. CleanSwitch is extremely quick and easy to install. Set-up of the device is an intuitive process that requires no tools – and the integrated short guide provides a helping hand.


The variable detection zone can be set between 0,1 and 0,5 meters. CleanSwitch offers two detection modes: the pulse mode with waste delay switches when movement is detected and returns the detector to its original status after a set period of time. In the on / off function, CleanSwitch changes its status every time a hand movement is detected.
