Hook hygiene hook – the easy solution for contactless everyday life

Wanzl’s new tool prevents contact with surfaces and minimises the risk of infection

The Covid-19 pandemic raises awareness! What was completely normal and harmless a few weeks ago is now being called into question. Pressing door handles and lift buttons, operating touch screens – not many people think about the potential risk of infection here. However, surfaces that are touched often and by different people are hiding places for viruses and bacteria. The new Hook hygiene hook from Wanzl efficiently reduces this risk of infection.

Food retail is in Wanzl’s DNA. The company carries out all the planning and design of stores, creates entirely new shop concepts and also manufactures individual products such as shelving systems, entrance systems and, of course, shopping trolleys – Wanzl is a global leader in the manufacture of shopping trolleys. The Hook hygiene hook is based on this expertise and the highest quality requirements. Made of PP plastic, the hook is extremely robust and durable. The Hook hygiene hook also has a soft non-slip inner surface so that it does not slip when used on smooth surfaces. Thanks to a soft rubber stop on the hook, using buttons and touch screens is easy and, above all, contactless. The retractable carabiner clip supplied as standard makes the hook particularly suitable for everyday use. This clip allows the hook to be attached to jackets, bags or belts. Always there, always close to hand.

But what for? The basic concept is simple. The less direct skin contact with potentially contaminated surfaces there is, the lower the risk of infection. But, in everyday life, we need to use our hands all the time to do even the simplest of things. This is where Wanzl’s Hook hygiene hook comes in handy.

Everyday situation 1: Opening doors

Doors are difficult to open without hands. It might sound trivial, but it is a real problem. Office buildings, doctors’ practices, hotels or supermarket fridges – door handles must be used everywhere. With the Hook hygiene hook, direct skin contact is easily avoided. The ring is held between the index finger and thumb. The hook is then placed on the door handle and the door can be opened and closed again.

Everyday situation 2: Using buttons and touch interfaces

Taking the lift to the fifth floor, entering a PIN at the checkout terminal in the store or paying for parking at the car park terminal is, of course, only possible if the relevant buttons can be pressed or touch screens activated. This is a cinch with the soft rubber stop on the hook.
The examples illustrate: The Hook hygiene hook is the easy solution for contactless everyday life. In order for the protection to be effective, the hook should be cleaned with hot water and then disinfected every evening.
