Hands-free Dispensers go Portable to Support Social Distancing

Jun 16 2020 Read 194 Times

Hygienic furniture specialist Teknomek has introduced a portable hand sanitising unit to further support pharma businesses in reducing transference risk in the workplace. The dispenser supports a viscosity range of 2000-5000 CP, making it compatible with both soap and hand gel. Contents are released touch-free using an infra-red sensor.

Sue Springett, Commercial Manager at Teknomek, said: “With no clear timeline on a Coronavirus vaccine, we've seen a surge in demand for products that support hands-free operations and social distancing.

“High touch surfaces such as taps, door handles and dispensers pose a particular transference risk. Options such as infra-red or knee-operated go a long way to solving that problem, each time a touch point is removed, another risk is managed away.”

The dispenser is mounted on a durable and easy-clean 304-grade stainless steel pedestal. The unit’s overall weight is just 10.5 kg, which means it can be moved easily around a facility for placement regardless of how remote this may be.

Sue Springett concluded: “Flexibility is key so we offer numerous options in our dispenser range. Customers are able to permanently wall mount for heavy use scenarios and these can be supplemented by the new portable pedestals. This approach allows additional units to be deployed quickly to support social distancing guidelines without slowing down operations, for example at the start or end of a shift.

“Teknomek’s aim is to be a one-stop shop offering both the furniture and support materials for the hygienic workplace. Consequently, customers are now able to purchase sanitising hand gel refill packs direct from us.”

The dispenser has a maximum 800cc capacity and the sensor is powered by three standard 1.5 v batteries offering 145,000 operations.
