- Hand washing and hand disinfection devices
- Sole cleaning and sole disinfection equipment
- Shaft cleaning and shaft sole disinfection devices
- Hand drying system
With a large number of employees, it is advisable not to combine the individual work steps such as hand cleaning and hand disinfection as well as sole cleaning and sole disinfection in one device, but rather to distribute them to different facilities in order to avoid flooding at the beginning or at the end of the shift. As a result of this adjustment, the capacity of the hygiene station is not exceeded.

2. Forced, compact hygiene locks: hygiene components combined in one system
3. Hygiene sluice according to operating instructions: small businesses or side entrances
Depending on the size of the company and the local conditions, our health specialists will design a hygiene station tailored to your needs based on the following criteria:
- Number of people in a certain period of time
- Number of layers
- Degree of pollution
- The country’s food control authority must meet these requirements
- Individual operational characteristics
Of course, we check whether the employees have work equipment with them and how or by whom the hygiene components have to be cleaned.
When it comes to what type of escape route you need, keep in mind that an emergency exit is usually useless if there is no exit. Possible transport routes and / or escape routes around the hygiene locks should also be taken into account when planning. Our specially designed and tried and tested escape route swing gates or magnetic locks meet the legally required escape width.
In addition to the smoke alarm devices, you can also install a fire alarm system or an emergency release device that ensures the necessary safety in an emergency.
For example, cleaning staff and their equipment must be taken with you on your trip. Therefore, the speed and cleanliness of system maintenance should be considered. The less dirty the construction and the easier it is to implement a hygiene station, the lower the degree of soiling and the need for cleaning.
We design solutions based on the customer’s actual requirements and budget. Even if the installation of hygiene stations in small businesses is not always possible, we can help you achieve this goal by working closely with your food inspector and architect.
