In the midst of the COVID-19 health emergency, the company Electropuertas has manufactured new products in response to the current situation, finding an ally in the quality and design of Ternium products.
Ternium Pintro sheets are considered to be top allies when it comes to manufacturing the new sanitizing booths to meet the highest technical and aesthetic standards. The booths have just come onto the market and are already being used in some public sectors.
Guillermo Kiehnle from Electropuertas explained that the company has developed three types of booths: for pedestrians, motorcycles and for automobiles. The idea behind the design of these systems is to eliminate traces of the virus from outdoor materials, using a sprinkler mechanism to spray disinfectant.
The quality of the products is essential for this task, stressed Kiehnle.
“We use pre-painted Ternium steel sheet to fashion the entire structure of the booth. The quality of this product is unbeatable, giving us a competitive advantage over any other form of booth and, in addition, the aesthetic aspect is very important. We are extremely satisfied with Ternium pre-painted sheet,” said Kiehnle.
Creative ideas and their results
Douglas Burgos, Head of the Construction Sector for Ternium Central America, explained that Electropuertas is an industrial customer that performs technical work in Guatemala and other countries in the region. They regularly purchase several of Ternium’s coated products, which they use to manufacture door panels, mostly using pre-painted steel injected with polyurethane. This concept is what gave birth to the new products designed to address the current crisis, he detailed.
Burgos explained that Ternium's pre-painted steel is highly versatile and its color uniquely presentable, giving the appearance of spotlessness. He also pointed to its practicality and suitability for use in different environments, making it easy to clean and maintain. As for the Electropuertas sanitizing booths, Burgos said that they disperse chemicals uniformly, unlike other models on the market, thanks to their inbuilt valve system and control equipment.
