CHICAGO, IL – June 26, 2020 — NoTrax, a global leader in floor matting products, announces the launch of the Shoe Sanitizer System, a 2 or 3-zone disinfectant and sanitation mat solution that is specifically designed to prevent the spread of germs, bacteria, and viruses in the workplace and in schools.
Mark McElhinny, the President and CEO of the Justrite Safety Group, the parent company of NoTrax, said the Shoe Sanitizer System is a response to the anxieties of company leaders who want to guard their workers against viruses that we now know can easily spread via footwear making contact with heavily trafficked areas like schools, commercial lobbies, stairwells, locker rooms, airport concourses, elevator banks, and more.
“As more businesses, warehouses, factories, and other workplaces begin to open, leadership is seeking greater protection of their workforce,” said McElhinny. “Our Shoe Sanitizer System is designed to slow the potential spread of COVID-19 and any virus from spreading anywhere it shouldn’t so we can protect our co-workers and our loved ones.”
The Shoe Sanitization System’s 3-Zone system features adhesive-backed disposable carpets for quick and easy disposal.
The Zone 1 mat is a scraper mat where the footwear can be scraped of debris. The Zone 2 mat features a tray area containing a disinfectant solution. The individual sanitizes each foot simply by standing on a highly absorbent scraper mat in the tray for a few seconds until they move forward. The Zone 3 mat features an absorbent Berber carpet that dries their footwear.
It’s that quick. It’s that simple. It’s that thorough.
It’s also that essential. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 spread rapidly to the outside world from various floors of Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan, China where droplets containing the virus were discovered. In other words, hospital workers were walking the virus out the doors and into their homes and other public spaces.
“Reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 by cleaning and disinfection is an important part of reopening public spaces that will require careful planning,” a recent CDC reopening guide notes.
“There is no question that we are living in a new world where better approaches are required to protect against invisible threats. Our Shoe Sanitizer System makes it easy for workers to shield themselves from unwanted threats while giving them peace of mind,” said McElhinny.
