Creating a Safer Washroom
Hygiene is one of the most crucial behaviour that everyone must improve post the Coronavirus pandemic. The government is also implementing hygiene guidelines for businesses to prevent the spread of viruses in public spaces. Washrooms are some of the most commonly used areas in a business and that makes it a hotspot for communal transmissions.
As your business reopens and adapts to the new restrictions it is important you protect your washrooms from being contaminated. As the experts in hygiene for more than 90+ years, we offer a range of products, such as soaps, hand sanitiser dispensers, dryers and social distancing floor mats, help to prevent cross-contamination occurring and gives you peace of mind.
We have used our expertise to develop specific virtual surveys which will ensure that we can identify the right hygiene facilities you should have in place in order to reopen safely, without us having to physically visit your premise. Get in touch to organise your survey.
Why Are Washrooms At A High Risk Of Transmissions?
Washrooms tend to be communal and hence observe a lot of footfall throughout the day. The more the number of people that use your washroom, the higher the risk of germs getting transmitted. In the washroom, germs can be transmitted both directly and indirectly in multiple ways, making it crucial to minimise their spread by investing in proper hygiene solutions.

Relying On Other People's Behaviour - Did the person before you wash their hands? What did the person before you touch?

The current pandemic has increased the level of washroom hygiene expected from businesses like your to prevent the spread of the virus. Thoughtout the last 90+ years we have helped businesses keep their wahsrooms hygienic and disease-free.
Avoid crowding in communal areas in order to maintain social distancing. Queues must be distanced and managed to avoid breaching your maximum occupancy.
Door Handles - This common touchpoint possesses a huge risk of cross contamination. After coming into contact with the door handle when entering or leaving the washroom you should clean your hands.
Using all of the current urinals may breach physical distancing. Certain urinals may need to be closed down in order to maintain social distancing between users.
Baby Changing -
Changing facilities should be disinfected before and after use.
Try to keep the washroom well ventilated. Well-ventilated and clean air is less likely to spread airborn pathogens. If no ventilation outlets exist then consider installing air filters.
Hand Dryers with HEPA Filters
In light of the ongoing Coronavirus situation, proper hand hygiene has never been more important.
Higher grade filters trap smaller particles and provide a higher % kill rate of bacteria and viruses. Hand dryers with HEPA 14 filters provide a high level of hand hygiene. These can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns, removing up to 99.995% of germs from the air expelled onto your hands.
The higher the filter grade, the better the filter is in trapping airborne particles and cleaning the air. Using dryers with HEPA 14 filters will ensure that every user has the ability to properly and hygienically dry their hands.
We offer 5 hand dryers with HEPA 14 filters:
High grade HEPA filtration can assist in protecting against Coronavirus.
The first step in the hand hygiene process is proper hand washing. Using soap while adhering to our handwashing guide will remove a large amount of pathogens from your hands.
See our range of soap dispensers and take the first step towards better hand hygiene.
2. Hand Drying
Even when you’ve managed to wash away any hand pathogens with soap, you need to remove residual moisture to stop them from reappearing. If you leave the washroom with wet hands then you create a breeding ground for the same pathogens to re-emerge.
Our range of hand dryingoptions spans from traditional roller towel dispenser and paper towel dispenser all the way to ultra-hygienic hand dryers with in-built air filters.
3. Hand Sanitising
Finally, when your hands have been properly washed and dried, apply hand sanitiser for extra protection. This will prevent your hands from quickly becoming a pathogen hotspot.
To cope with the recent unprecedented spike in demand, we have made a number of new additions to our hand sanitiser range. This ensures that we can help to safeguard the nation’s hand hygiene.
