HOW PEDAL-OPERATED HAND SANITISER STANDS CAN BE EFFECTIVE IN FIGHTING COVID-19 IN HOSPITALITY AS BUSINESSES ADAPT TO KEEP STAFF AND CUSTOMERS SAFE

 Restaurants can best help avoid a ‘second wave’ of coronavirus by protecting its staff and customers with a new and unique ‘pedal-operated’ hand sanitiser dispenser.

Recently, chemical distribution company, Chemtra Limited, introduced the Igieniko Hand Sanitiser Station as the UK’s first completely touch-free wireless dispenser. With its practical pedal-operation, the user simply places their hands under the dispenser, presses their foot down onto the pedal and out squeezes the gel.

The dispenser can be placed at entrances to restaurants or at a chosen location inside and has been introduced to help protect staff and customers from a major resurgence of Covid-19. Available to buy online for £299, the stand has seen a huge increase in sales over the past month, according to Chemtra, as the hospitality industry prepares to welcome back customers.

Along with the sanitising dispenser, Chemtra offer an 80 per cent alcohol sanitising solution which is EN1500 certified and World Health Organisation (WHO) formulation 1 approved. Jesse Palle, managing director at Chemtra Limited, says this allows restaurant staff to return to work in a safe and clean environment and enables customers to enjoy their dining experience with confidence.

The Igieniko Hand Sanitiser Station holds five litres of sanitising gel – enough for around 5,000 pumps – and restaurants can even customise the dispenser with their own corporate colours and logo.

 

 

 

Mr Palle said: “When it was launched the Igieniko Hand Sanitiser Station had the honour of being the very first dispenser in the UK to be able to offer ‘pedal-operated’ technology and is an ideal solution for any business in the hospitality sector. It can help keep employees and customers safe from touching a potentially contaminated hand sanitiser dispenser, stop the spread of coronavirus and avoid a second wave.

“The stand requires no cables, batteries or mains power and is completely wireless. It’s light in weight and can be positioned wherever restaurant owners would like to place it. It has been designed with the customer in mind, ensuring a better user experience and safer operation for people of various heights.

 

“The stand’s five-litre unit capacity, means staff do not have to be constantly refilling the dispenser from plastic bottles, so it’s a very environmentally friendly option. Customers also like the fact they can customise the dispenser to match their branding too.”
