In response to the coronavirus pandemic, and following feedback from a number of healthcare operators, the IMC and Lincat teams have joined forces to develop a large capacity Mobile Hand Wash Station. This is for organisations who need to add to their existing hand wash facilities but don’t have a power supply available for where it needs to be located.
Helen Applewhite, marketing manager for IMC and Lincat brands, said: “It has become apparent over the past few weeks that the hand wash facilities available on the market today are limited in where they can be located due to the requirement of a power supply.
“It is great that our R&D teams have risen to the challenge and so quickly developed a solution for organisations looking for a simple, hygienic and easy way to ensure hand washing is carried out by staff and visitors in the fight against Covid-19.”
The Mobile Hand Wash Station, model number F63/503, has a large 20litre water tank, which is said to be double the capacity of most models currently available. The water tank can be removed for refilling and is accessed from the front of the unit.
The foot-operated pump allows the user to dispense the required amount of water with no need for hand contact with the tap, therefore helping with hygiene.
A separate internal waste collection tank holds the waste water, removing the need for drainage. The waste tank should be easy to remove and accessed from the front so once the station is in place, there is no need to move it, unless a site wants to.
The Mobile Hand Wash Station includes a splashback, soap dispenser and paper towel holder, as well as an optional waste bin ring.
A stainless steel construction, large wheels and a handle make are designed to make the Hand Wash Station quick and easy to manoeuvre.
The unit is available to purchase from Lincat, and stock is available now.
