Ice and water dispenser specialist Follett has released a new touchless update for its Series 7 and 15 models, making the machines Covid-safe.
The Series 7 and 15 machines produce up to 125lbs of ice a day, while certain models feature cold, sparkling water in addition to cold, still water.
The new SensorSAFE kit and antimicrobial shield for the machines mean that users no longer need to touch them, limiting the spread of viruses like Covid-19.
The movement-activated sensor is available as an add-on for new and existing standing and countertop models.
Meanwhile the antimicrobial shield covers the capacitive touch interface to improve sanitation.
It does this by disrupting the cell function of bacteria, yeast, molds and fungi.
The shield comes as standard with all new bought models from September 2020.
They are available in packs of five or 50, for use with any Series 7 or 15 model.
