From Australia - a really novel way of providing better hand hygiene
Galvin Engineering is working together with Soapstream to make available an easier and more hygienic way to improve hand hygiene in schools and other high risk public areas.
Hands are a common offender in the transmission and spread of germs and bacteria.
The unique Soapstream system combats the difficulties of having/maintaining soap in these environments. The soap pallet is encased in a vandal-resistant housing situated under the tap's water flow.
The benefit to children, parents and the wider community is that the soap is already on hand and has not been in contact with any surface that may be contaminated with germs and bacteria.
Facilities that use this system are provided with an easier and more cost effective alternative to maintaining hand washing areas. The tapware used has the ability to be calibrated to operate for either five, seven, 10 or 15 seconds, saving water and energy usage.
