Schools are gearing up to reopen for the fall, but it is extremely unclear just how this year will play out due to Covid-19. However, one thing is for sure, hand sanitizer is going to be in high demand! Schools will expect students to wash and sanitize their hands regularly considering “that 80 percent of all infections are transmitted by hands” (Faivre, 2018). In many cases, hand sanitizer is more convenient and accessible than soap and water and will be instrumental to schools reopening safely. Sanitizer bottles or dispensers can be easily placed in classrooms, lecture halls, dining halls, etc. However, it is also important to encourage students and faculty to sanitize their hands prior to entering the building to mitigate the spread of pathogens.
Sanitizing outside is just as important as sanitizing inside a building. For schools looking for a sanitizer solution that can withstand the outdoor elements year-round, Gateway Stations hand sanitizer towers are a perfect solution. The industrial, high capacity hand sanitizer dispensers can be placed in any environment because of the durable, but lightweight aluminum construction.
Gateway Stations dispensers also come in child-size towers to keep our little ones safe! These child-size towers are especially great for primary schools. The dispensers are automatic for “hands-free,” handicap accessible use, and they are made of the same durable material as the adult-sized towers. Children will be reminded to sanitize their hands before they enter the classroom and outside during recess. For schools looking to safely reopen this fall, Gateway Stations’ hand sanitizer dispensers are a durable and convenient sanitizer solution!
