Due to the ever increasing resistance of microorganisms to traditional methods of treatment, infection control and prevention is more important than ever.
According to the World Health Organization, most Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI’s) are caused by germs transmitted from healthcare providers’ hands to patients when providing care.
Contaminated surfaces are greatly responsible for the spread of germs on healthcare professionals’ hands. Door handles, in particular, are a well-documented breeding ground for pathogens. They are a high risk common contact surface facilitating the transmission of germs throughout a facility.
Clean hands ultimately save lives and washing hands is paramount, but is only part of the solution.
The uniqueness of this device is that it is a simple mechanical operation and does not require power or any external source to run.
It is an involuntary action (cannot be stopped) with energy created by the closing motion of the door delivering, (through an atomizer) tiny particles of sanitiser onto the contact surface area of most types of door handles as well as a small amount onto the persons hand leaving the handle safer for users to touch.
We offer a simple and effective means to deliver a pulse of disinfectant to the handle each time the door closes, after each time the handle is re-contaminated.
Key points to remember...
Uses a simple atomising pump
No harmful aerosols, which can cause damage to the human respiratory system
No alcohol on the door
Which is regarded as a Fire Hazard
Guaranteed to work each time the door is used, involuntary action therefore not reliant on human effort, resulting in extreme effectiveness
Operates when required, and only when required. If the door is used 100 times a day, it works 100 times a day, if the door is used once a day, it only works once a day.
If it only prevents cross-contamination by one case per year, it more than pays for itself, by reducing, sick leave from the workplace, food poisoning in a restaurant, hospital-acquired infection, etc.
Highly visible hygiene statement
Demonstrates management’s commitment to the provision of a clean and safe environment for staff, clients and visitors alike.
Prevention is always better than cure
toilet doors in any location where there are multi-use facilities are a well-documented source of cross-contamination, with germs like the common cold and the flu virus capable of surviving on them for several days.
The passive spread of sanitising fluid
While the purpose of the mechanism is primarily to ensure that the door handle is safe to touch, an added advantage is that people who touch the handle are guaranteed to get traces of the sanitising fluid onto their hands that they would not otherwise have
The simplicity of the product makes it very easy to install and ensures that no maintenance is required, you simply change the cartridge
