When the COVID-19 pandemic started to gain traction in the UK, people responded by going out and buying all the hand sanitiser, toilet paper, and groceries that they could. This caused a supply chain crisis where, for several weeks, it was virtually impossible to find vital PPE and certain food items such as rice, eggs, and flour in the shops both on and offline.
This presented an opportunity for certain nefarious individuals who went out of their way to bulk buy items like face masks, hand sanitiser, and eye protection so that they could re-sell it at a grossly inflated price on websites like eBay and the Facebook Marketplace. And although these practices were soon cracked down on by these websites, some government authorities, and the public who responded by publicly shaming those responsible, a lot of damage had already been done.
However, it also presented an opportunity for the team here at Hillside Commerce to leverage our expertise and excellent reputation in the hand dryer products industry to launch HandStations—a brand focusing on the ethical supply of hand sanitation products and solutions at standard industry prices.
Working with our contacts in the industry, we quickly developed and brought to market our own range of hand sanitisers and sanitation products that are made exclusively in the UK and are sold here at HandStations.co.uk.
Here’s a quick look at some of the products that we offer:
HandStation Elite automatic touch-free hand sanitiser dispensers
The HandStation Elite range consists of our flagship automatic hand sanitiser dispensers that come as either wall-mounted, freestanding, or desktop units depending. Starting from £89.99, our automatic liquid hand sanitiser dispensers are manufactured in the UK and feature:
- Touch-free dispensing of hand sanitiser gel
- Savings on waste as only the necessary amount of gel is dispensed each time
- A stylish design that adds to the aesthetics of any workplace or premises
- A large capacity refillable tank with visible contents window
- A safety lock, drip tray, and anti-drip cut off valve
- CE and RoHS certification
- A 2-year guarantee as standard
Automatic hand sanitiser dispensers from the HandStation Elite range are perfect for office environments, workplaces, and any building where the public has access, such as supermarkets and restaurants.
The dispensers eliminate the need for people to stand guard at the door, manually dispensing sanitiser for your visitors to use. Instead, our dispensers use simple infrared technology to detect when a hand is placed underneath it, allowing them to sanitise their hands on their own.
If you’re looking for something that’s a little more versatile, our wall-mounted automatic hand sanitiser dispensers can be affixed to the wall beside cash counters, in bathrooms, next to entry points, and placed strategically around public areas such as waiting rooms, hotel foyers, and canteens.
Alcohol hand sanitiser
In addition to our dispensers, we’ve worked with our industry contacts to produce our own medical-grade alcohol hand sanitiser. Fast drying and consisting of 80% alcohol by volume, it’s the perfect weapon to use against COVID-19 and other viruses and pathogens with 99.9% effectiveness.
Our alcohol sanitiser is manufactured in distilleries that comply with current World Health Organisation standards. It contains no scents and no dyes and is available from £29.99 for a 5L bottle. We’ve also got a 70% gel variant which is just as effective.
For our customers who can’t use alcohol-based hand sanitiser and require one that doesn’t use it, we’ve partnered up with Nilaqua.
Nilaqua’s food-safe, non-flammable, alcohol-free hand sanitisers contain two active ingredients—Didecyl Dimethyl Ammonium and Benzalkonium Chloride—which kill all coronaviruses, including COVID-19, in addition to Norovirus, MRSA, and Salmonella, among others.
