LONDON, December 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Installed in 36 shopping centres around the country, a unique, six foot high, hand sanitising device is helping to keep the public's hands germ free while out and about. Free to use, SaniPost is proven to kill 99.9% of all known germs, including the H1N1 virus.
With concern around illnesses such as Swine Flu, it is becoming increasingly important to protect against the spread of germs and the public are being urged to keep hands clean at all times. This becomes more difficult when outside, where the spread of germs is increased, particularly when sharing hand rails, opening doors, picking up products or eating. SaniPost, the first device of its kind in the UK, can help with this by providing a touch free, hand sanitising service close to food halls and busy areas in shopping centres. Development started on the unit in May 2008 and it was launched to the public in March this year.
Offering convenient access to disabled people and children, users simply place hands into the SaniPost unit and a sensor operated device dispenses the hand-cleaning foam automatically without the need for buttons or levers. Under rigorous testing, this foam has been proven to kill 99.9% of germs, including the H1N1 virus that causes Swine Flu. However, it is also alcohol and scent free, using natural ingredients and moisturisers which makes it safe for all the family, including children.
Warren Edmondson, Managing Director of Nettoyer Media, the company which owns SaniPost, says: SaniPost is a great solution for consumers who are concerned about the spread of germs and disease in public places, including Swine Flu which has affected thousands of people in the UK to date. SaniPost is a truly accessible solution to meet public demand to safeguard against hand-borne contaminants - we've made it as easy as possible to be germ safe.
Even though Swine Flu has elevated public awareness of hand hygiene, SaniPost has been designed to meet the wider needs of the general public on a daily, practical basis. Eventually SaniPosts will be installed in a range public venues across the UK and Europe.
