Dispense specialist Brewfitt has launched a fully mobile hand sanitisation station.
The stainless steel unit, developed in partnership with Holchem and KeyKeg, requires no power and so can be positioned in multiple locations within a site. The dispense station delivers up to 7,500 doses of alcohol-free antibacterial hand solution between keg changes.
The gel is claimed to kill Covid-19 and other viruses.
With hospitality, retail and leisure operators working to comply with stricter hygiene regulations as the lockdown eases, the unit could offer reassurance to foodservice customers and staff, as well as to the licensing and public health authorities.
Curtis Paxman, MD of Brewfitt said: “As soon as the Covid-19 lockdown began, we realised entirely fresh thinking would be required to meet the need for effective hand sanitisation, often at multiple locations within the same site, and simple to move around according to the occasion and changing footfall.
“In partnership with Holchem and KeyKeg, we’ve come up with the hand sanitisation station. It’s a solution for the broadest range of operators, including hospitality, retail and leisure sites, and well as commercial premises and public buildings where employees and visitors will now expect effective and reliable hygiene arrangements to be in place.”
One of the first operators to install the hand sanitisation station is Manchester’s Albert’s Schloss, which has ordered units as part of its reopening programme. Roy Ellis, chief executive of venue owner Mission Mars, said: “Like all operators, we’re keen to reopen our doors as soon as we’re allowed to, but we’ll need to reassure our customers that we’ll keep them safe while they’re with us, and effective hand sanitisation is going to be an important part of our hygiene regime.
“For a busy, multi-faceted venue such as Albert’s Schloss, the portable hand sanitisation stations are ideal, as we can re-site them over the course of the day and week, depending on where they’re needed to meet the needs of our guests and team members.“
Brewfitt technology automatically dispenses the recommended 4ml dose of Holchem’s Handsan solution, which is alcohol-free and said to be proven to kill Covid-19. Each unit holds a 20 or 30 litre KeyKeg of Handsan, which can be replaced when empty.
The hand sanitisation station is manufactured in Great Britain from commercial grade stainless steel, is fully mobile and requires no power to function. It can be branded with the operator’s logo if required.
