Supplier Scobie McIntosh has introduced PPE vending machines for high footfall sites including schools and universities, supermarkets and airports and shopping centres.
The Pro-tect Mask Vending systems provide re-usable, three layer cotton face masks with an anti-bacterial finish, as well as other PPE such as hand sanitiser.
The masks are claimed to provide protection for up to 50 washes at 60°C and come in what are said to be fashionable designs for both children and adults.
Scobie McIntosh can retrofit a machine or supply a new one, from stock, to sell masks only, masks and other PPE equipment or masks and a choice of other snacks or drinks.
The vending machine uses contactless payment by debit or credit card.
