The maker of a new hand sanitiser dispenser has partnered with Spelsberg to develop a highly resilient, lockable dispenser to meet the demands of the Coronavirus crisis. Hermes, manufacturer of the HandClean 2020 (a hands free sanitiser dispenser), has selected Spelsberg's GEOS enclosure for its contactless design which is to be used in public places such shopping centres, banks, reception areas and industrial sites.
The dispenser is designed to be robust and Hermes selected Spelsberg because of the high impact resistance of its GEOS enclosures: they are constructed from high-strength polycarbonate and meet the IK09 standard. IK09, one of the highest industrial impact ratings, means that Spelsberg GEOS enclosures are tested to withstand the impact of 5kg dropped from a height of 200mm. Installed in public areas, a further design consideration was the need for rounded rather than sharp edges.
As the sanitiser dispenser will be positioned in public areas, it is important that the enclosures can be locked to prevent removal or contamination of the sanitiser: so the GEOS enclosure includes a robust locking mechanism which prevents unauthorised access. Various different locking mechanisms are available for use dependent on the level of security required, in addition to the standard cam lock or pivoted levers. The door itself is transparent, which enables easy monitoring of sanitiser level for replacement, with grey available for doors and covers.
Installation of the Hermes HandClean 2020 sanitiser is achieved through either wall or stand mounting, with small and large sizes available in each variant. GEOS can be mounted via keyhole or a variety of optional external fastenings including mast fitting. Enclosures can also be interconnected thanks to their modular design, and the modular approach continues internally with tool-free installation of standard rails, assembly plates and slide-in partition walls for flexibility and ease of design layout.
The Hermes sanitiser can also be located in outdoor environments thanks to the GEOS enclosure which meets IP66/67, making it completely dust tight and resistant to high-pressure water jets. This feature is aided by Drain Protect channels which move moisture away from potential ingress points. The construction also means no corrosion after mechanical processing, and the enclosure is also UV-resistant.
GEOS is available as an empty enclosure or cabinet form in sizes from 300mm × 180mm up to 400mm × 226mm. Spelsberg also provides bespoke precision CNC machining carried out on-site and further customised options include printing, wiring, testing and packaging.
