Mechline Developments has launched a customer confidence campaign to support operators in getting customers safely back into venues.
The company’s HyGenikx units – which inactivate viruses by using a unique combination of UVC, PCO and trace ozone to destroy microorganisms – now come supplied with a HyGenikx sticker, to show customers when a venue is going the extra mile to look after customers’ safety.
Kristian Roberts, marketing manager at Mechline, said: “The HyGenikx range has already proved very popular with restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels across the country who have supplemented their own rigorous manual cleaning regimes with the 24/7 protection HyGenikx offers against bacteria and viruses, in the air and on surfaces.
“As HyGenikx is wall-mounted, compact and works quietly, most customers don’t even notice it’s there, and therefore aren’t aware of the safety benefits it brings. The HyGenikx sticker can be displayed front of house – in windows, on doors, on walls or menus – to provide added reassurance to prospective diners that the venue is taking an important extra step to make its operation as safe as possible.
“With the sticker displayed we hope it will help give customers the confidence to eat inside venues again, safe in the knowledge that advanced hygiene technology is installed there. The sticker also acts as a portal to more information, as it features a QR code that will take diners to a landing page explaining the benefits of HyGenikx.”
Sean Donkin, managing director at The Inn Collection Group, said it had benefitted from deploying the technology across its sites.
“Reopening after lockdown, we knew we had to adapt to a new normal, add in extra safety measures, and align with the changed mindset of customers. HyGenikx sounded like a great safeguarding solution to complement our increased cleaning procedures. As it can work all day it is constantly killing airborne and surface viruses and bacteria.”
Cyrus Todiwala, owner of Cafe Spice Namaste, is also using the system. He said: “I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend HyGenikx to other foodservice or hospitality businesses as it is the ideal complement to manual cleaning. It helps to protect customers and staff, extends the shelf life of fresh produce and provides additional reassurance so our industry can move forward with confidence and return to some kind of normal.”
