Milton, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 27, 2013 -- Long Range Systems (LRS), a leading specialist supplier of on-site paging solutions, has introduced a new antibacterial wireless paging device to their website.
SafeTouch, LRS' new antimicrobial guest notification device, has been launched as part of the company's efforts to combat the spread of contagious infections in locations where people are given pagers whilst waiting for a booking (such as in a cafÃ©, a restaurant or a bar).
The SafeTouch device is designed to significantly reduce or completely remove the risk of microorganisms spreading within a building, whilst giving staff the ability to efficiently page and thus notify guests when their table is ready.
Results from studies carried out by the Food and Drink Federation have shown that up to half of all men and a quarter of women fail to wash their hands after using the toilet, which doubles the amount of germs on the fingertips. These germs can stay alive on the hands and be unknowingly transmitted from person to person for up to three hours, meaning contagion is likely and easy.
SafeTouch's antimicrobial technology is therefore hailed by LRS as especially useful for increasing operational efficiency in health and safety and food preparation environments, due to not only its antibacterial properties, but its technology, which is designed to manage waiting guests more efficiently and eliminate counter congestion, which could contribute to the spreading of microbes.
A spokesperson for LRS commented: "SafeTouch's antibacterial coating and one-touch paging make managing waiting guests safer and more efficient.
"In addition to the benefits offered by the traditional wireless paging systems, SafeTouch's ergonomic design and antimicrobial body make it a valuable item for restaurant operators, and other food preparation-based businesses with a high volume of guests."
