Product description: Hygiene Station.

Hygiene station Definition: Hygiene stations, often referred to as hygiene entrances, are used to prevent and transfer contamination in production areas of food processing plants, agriculture, bakeries, butcheries, hospitals, commercial kitchens, or industrial plants. These stations are manufactured according to HACCP standards and are the optimal solution for optimum hygiene conditions.

Hygiene stations are facilities where employees can clean and disinfect their hands, work shoes and work equipment such as knives, aprons and gloves. They are facilities for cleaning people and are sometimes referred to as hygiene gates. They are used to control the flow of people through the facility and ensure food hygiene in businesses. Hygiene stations may include the following components.

Heim EDT all-in-one Hygiene Station with a turnstile, soap dispenser, disinfectant dispenser, and sole cleaning is a comprehensive solution for maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in industrial and other public spaces. The station is designed to ensure that individuals entering a particular area, such as a hospital, restaurant, or manufacturing facility, have clean and sanitized hands and soles to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria.

The soap or disinfectant dispenser is an essential component of the hygiene station. It dispenses a predetermined amount of soap or sanitizing solution, which individuals can use to clean their hands before entering the premises. The soap dispenser can be designed to accept various soap types, including antibacterial, antimicrobial, or regular soap. The turnstiles activate only after this operation is finished. The turnstile can be programmed to allow access to individuals who have undergone a specific level of hygiene, such as hand washing or sole cleaning.

The sole cleaning component of the station is designed to remove dirt and other contaminants from the soles of shoes. It typically consists of a brush or a series of brushes that individuals can walk over to clean their shoes. Sole cleaning helps prevent the spread of germs and bacteria from footwear, which can be a significant source of contamination.

Overall, an all-in-one hygiene station with a turnstile, soap dispenser, and sole cleaning is an effective way to maintain cleanliness and hygiene at your premises. It helps prevent the spread of germs and bacteria and ensures that individuals entering the premises have undergone a specific level of hygiene. The station can be customized to meet the specific needs of different industries and can be an essential tool in promoting public health and safety.

Experience in design and manufacturing of hygiene stations.

The team of Heim – EDT plans each Hygiene station individually for food companies, hospitals, large kitchens, butcheries, bakeries and many other industries. The system is adapted to your requirements and can be composed of the following components: Shoe cleaning, disinfection, hand washing, drying and turnstiles.  Through our years of experience in the production of Hygiene stations and constant contact with veterinarians, we know exactly how the legal requirements are. The most important factor for planning the Hygiene station is the number of employees who have to pass through the Hygiene station. The basic equipment of a Hygiene station includes:

  • Hand-washing and hand-disinfection facilities
  • Sole cleaning and disinfection equipment
  • Shaft cleaning and shaft disinfection equipment
  • Hand drying system

In the case of a larger number of employees, it is advisable not to combine the individual work steps such as hand washing and hand disinfection as well as sole cleaning and sole disinfection in one device, but to distribute them to different facilities in order to avoid flooding at the beginning or end of the shift. This adaptation ensures that the capacity of the Hygiene station is not exceeded.


Soles & Shoe Cleaning.

An important component of a Hygiene station is the cleaning of shoes or soles. Basic elements for this are the brushes for sole cleaning, which remove dirt from the underside of shoes and boots. This module can optionally be supplemented by upper cleaning.

    • Number of people in a given period of time
    • Number of shifts
    • Degree of contamination
    • The country’s food inspection authority must meet these requirements
    • Individual operational peculiarities

Of course, we’ll check to see if employees carry work equipment and how or by whom hygiene components need to be cleaned.

When it comes to what type of escape route you need, remember that an emergency exit is usually useless if there is no exit. It is also important to consider possible transport routes and/or escape routes around the Hygiene station when planning. Our specially designed and field-tested escape route swing gates or magnetic airlocks meet the legally required escape width.

In addition to smoke detectors, you can also install a fire alarm system or an emergency release device to provide the necessary safety in an emergency.

For example, the cleaning staff and their equipment must be taken with you on your journey. Therefore, the speed and cleanliness of system maintenance should be considered. The less dirty the design and the simpler the implementation of a Hygiene station, the lower the degree of contamination and the less cleaning required.

We design solutions based on the actual requirements and budget of the customer. Although it is not always possible to install Hygiene stations in small businesses, we can help you achieve this goal by working closely with your food inspector and architect.
