Handwashing and drinking stations using combination troughs

Students encounter many germs on a daily basis, whether it’s through sharing equipment in science labs or gym class, playing on the playground, or even sitting at the same table during lunchtime.

Marko Stainless WashWare hand washing stations provide convenient hand hygiene for 1-6 users at the same time and are perfect for schools. These hand sinks are made of heavy-duty stainless steel that is easy to clean and sanitise while also being reliable.

Marko Stainless offers a wide range of hand washing solutions to meet various needs, including portable freestanding sinks, wall-mounted hand sinks, individual and multi-station trough sinks, and self-contained models suitable for outdoor use. Multi-user hand washing sinks even have the option to temporarily disable individual stations to maintain social distancing.

By having Wash-Ware hand washing stations throughout the school, students have the chance to protect themselves and others from infection. Encouraging hand washing between classes, before eating lunch, and after gym class or recess is an effective way to keep students safe and teach them good hygiene habits.

Drinking stations in schools provide a convenient and hygienic way for students to access clean drinking water throughout the day. These stations can come in a variety of forms, including water fountains, bottle filling stations, and bubblers (drinking taps).

Water fountains are a traditional option for providing access to drinking water in schools. They typically consist of a spout or nozzle that dispenses water into a basin or receptacle, which students can drink from directly or fill up a water bottle.

Bottle filling stations are a more modern option that allows students to refill their water bottles with clean drinking water. These stations often have a sensor that activates the flow of water when a bottle is placed underneath the spout, and some models even have a filter to remove impurities from the water.

Bubblers (drinking taps) are another option for providing access to drinking water in schools. These are typically mounted on a wall or a trough and allow students to drink directly from the tap or fill up a water bottle. Installing a combination trough allows, both drinking and hand washing to be in the same place, providing students with access to water whatever the reason.
