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.
The hospitality industry has opened its doors for the first time in three-and-a-half months since cafes, pubs and restaurants were forced to close in order to stop the spread of Covid-19 on March 20.
Since then many restaurants have offered food delivery and takeaways to generate income. However, from July 4th, restaurants have been allowed to re-open and welcome customers inside with certain restrictions, including more use of hand sanitiser.
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.
