Struggling to find suitable hygiene equipment
Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, Dave Jones, Business Owner at Castle Snooker & Sports Bar had to close for the unforeseeable future.
As lockdown measures started to ease and businesses put into a phased reopening, Dave started to think about his return strategy. He was finding it difficult to source a suitable way of maintaining hygiene throughout the building. This meant that staff were not able to return to work and members not able to come and use the facilities.
Dave explained, “Our immediate concern was the transfer of the virus from the outside world to our snooker cues and other internal equipment”.
Germgard completes Return To Work strategy
Fireco provided a Germgard unit to the snooker bar to see if it could help them effectively and safely reopen. Germgard is a smart hand sanitiser, designed to promote good hygiene practices to building users. Using digital signage, it alerts users to sanitise their hands before gaining entry.
This means that when staff and members are detected entering the building, they are presented with a digital display asking them to sanitise their hands. Castle Snooker & Sports Bar chose to connect their Germgard system with their electronic door lock, meaning that the door will only unlock for people who have used the sanitiser unit. This reduces the possibility of human error when controlling the transfer of germs.
“Germgard has played a vital role in making our COVID Secure Strategy strikingly obvious to our customers. We wanted to ease anxiety and make sure our members feel safe when returning to the new normal. I would recommend Fireco. They have helped us to reopen our business safely. ”
