CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Stations Installed by Grabber School of Hair Design

Grabber School of Hair Design worked very closely with Meritech on the selection and placement of CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Stations to ensure the school could meet their hand hygiene goals. 


At the visitor entrance of the facility a CleanTech® ELF was installed. The ELF is one of the best options for schools due to its competitive price point, size and clean design. The ELF's design also allows for easy replacement of water fountains. 


When deciding system placement, Meritech emphasized high traffic areas where everyone entering the building could easily wash their hands. One of these areas was where students clocked in and out, there a CleanTech® 500 was placed.
