New Meritech SystemMeritech, which supplies hand-washing systems to a number of major cruise lines, has rolled out the new CleanTech 500IW with an unique “in wall” recessed design allows for easy installation in high traffic areas or areas with limited space like corridors, hallways, entryways, public restrooms and children’s play areas, the company said. 

The new system has been designed specifically for cruise ships with narrow corridors and heavy traffic.

"We are constantly listening to our customers about their need for better hygiene options in more areas. The CleanTech 500IW is one way to insure that automated handwashing is available even in facilities and areas that have limited space like hallways with a lot of people,” said Michele Colbert, VP of Sales & Marketing at Meritech. “Now it is possible to install CleanTech automated handwashing systems, that guarantee clean hands, in more places on ships, in hospitals, in schools and any facility or location with space constraints.”

All of Meritech’s CleanTech automated handwashing systems deliver a 12-second wash and rinse cycle, removing 99.98% of dangerous pathogens from hands and gloved hands.

Meritech products use 75% less water, according to the company, and require less soap/sanitizer.
