London, United Kingdom, August 19, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- With recent concerns of illnesses such as Swine Flu being passed by hand, the importance of keeping hands clean is growing, particularly in schools. After a number of schools were closed due to the Swine Flu outbreak, Ilford Ursuline High School in Essex has made the task of keeping its pupils hands cleans easy and fun by installing a number of SaniPost units.
Mark Smith, Facilities Manager at Ilford Ursuline, said “We’re looking forward to having the units installed. The school is very aware of the rise in infections passed on by hand to hand contact. We’re hoping that by installing SaniPost we will minimise the spread of infections whilst demonstrating to the schools users that we are committed to providing a hygienic, safe and healthy environment’”
Sanipost, which is currently being rolled out to a number of public venues across the UK, is a free-standing environmentally friendly unit which is battery operated and offers a convenient hand-cleaning service to the public, without any need for water or paper towels. Hands are simply placed into the unit, which contains a sensor operated device, and the unit dispenses the hand-cleaning foam automatically, with no need for buttons or levers. The foam itself, supplied by No Germs, is alcohol and scent free and dissolves within seconds. The foam is rubbed into hands and within 10 seconds they are clean and germ-free. The foam also has moisturising benefits and is made with natural ingredients including aloe vera, camomile and lavender extracts. It kills 99.9% of germs, is safe for all to use, including children, and is free to use.
Warren Edmondson, Managing Director of Nettoyer Media, the company which owns SaniPost, said: “There is a real need to keep children’s hands clean to stop the spread of illness and we’re happy to provide this service to schools. We’re delighted that Mark Smith has taken the initiative to install the units at Ilford Ursuline High School and are planning to roll it out to a number of other schools, colleges and universities throughout the UK. Parents worry about their children picking up germs when at school and using SaniPost will help to allay these fears.”
