IMC has introduced a mobile hand wash station for outdoor catering, events and exhibitions where mains water is not an option.
Launched at The Professional Kitchen Show, the station holds 10litres of water per fill, enough for 85 hand washes.
The unit is designed to be easy to use, as operators need only fill the unit with water and plug it in. A foot-activated, infra-red operated tap dispenses water hygienically, with the temperature limited to 42°C for safety. An internal waste collection receptacle holds the dirty water.
The stainless steel unit measures 1,250mm (h) x 450mm (w) x 540mm (d), and comes with an integrated splash back and a built-in soap and towel dispenser. The station is mounted on large wheels for easy manoeuvring around the intended site.
Helen Applewhite, marketing manager for the IMC and Lincat brands said: “We were really delighted with the response to the hand wash station at the show. There is clearly a gap in the market for a simple, but attractively designed and purpose built mobile handwash station.”
Manufactured in the UK, the unit comes with a 2-year warranty.
