DFW, first airport to present Pluie, demonstration of the toilets of the future
DFW Airport, TX – Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) recently unveiled its new High C Gates expansion project, becoming the first airport to install Pluie’s patented self-sanitizing changing tables in its new smart restrooms .
Pluie is the world’s first and only self-sanitizing changing table for public restrooms, powered by a patented UV-C light system known to kill 99.9% of germs, including the flu, e. coli and coronavirus.
