With the nation slowly easing out of lockdown and the industry back on the move, Kuda UK has highlighted the importance of ensuring vehicles are sanitised and hand hygiene routines maintained, even when out on the road or on-site.
The company offers two products which it says are currently proving popular with fleets and drivers alike. The first is the ShoulderSink portable, all-in-one hand wash station, incorporating water, soap, paper and hand rub, as well as a waste bin.
The product can be elevated at the side door of a van, on the end of a rack, or stored in a compartment on board a truck or bus.
“It is compact, it is easy and convenient to use – and it is easy to bring along to where it is needed,” said Kuda.
“Using wet wipes or sanitiser on dirty hands will simply smear the dirt around. Using soap and water is the best way to clean dirty hands before disinfecting. The World Health Organization also recommends water and soap for dirty hands.”
“By maintaining a high level of hand hygiene you can spare yourself and others unnecessary risk.
“Keeping your vehicle, tools, and clothes clean, your customers happier and your skin healthier, is just a few of the positive side effects of proper hand hygiene.
“ShoulderSink is easy to fit in any vehicle, in any racking system and takes only a few minutes to mount. With a robust, sturdy powder-coated steel bracket, it can be installed just where there is room, in a height where it is easy and convenient to use.”
Also available from Kuda is the Vehicle Sanitiser Bomb, which the company says is a must-have for multi-user vehicles.
The product is said to eliminate germs and viruses, killing 99.99 per cent of bacteria. One single bomb-style use is suggested for large cabs, or two to three uses of the manual spray only for smaller vans and cars.
“Lingering bad smells inside of vehicles can be very offputting and make them an unpleasant environment to be in,” said Kuda.
“Smoke is especially difficult because it penetrates upholstery, carpet, hard surfaces and infiltrates the air circulation system. There’s also bacteria and germs that multiply within dormant air conditioning units that can cause bad smells.
“Kuda Vehicle Sanitiser & Deodoriser is a highly effective, disinfecting mist that kills bad smells and destroys bacteria that may be present in your vehicle with minimal effort,” said the firm.
“With just the push of a button, this bomb will release a fine mist of disinfectant that will fill the cabin of the vehicle, sanitising and deodorising both the air-con system and the interior at the same time, in under an hour. This is a highly effective, powerful broad-spectrum germicide.”
