“As part of our fit-out I was researching contactless technologies and I saw information on fogging machines used to sanitise rooms. This actually confused me, as you have to do it [fog] all the time. It just didn’t seem a practical solution for us. I then came across Mechline’s virus and bacteria killing machine, HyGenikx, and it seemed great. It works all the time and doesn’t require you to do anything—or stop operations. It is exactly what we needed.

“We have four HyGenikx units front of house, two in the kitchen and one in each toilet, to help protect all areas, staff and customers, and so far, our staff have reported no viral illnesses. Our air is permanently cleansed, and, without question, HyGenikx has helped us maintain a healthy work environment. We have also noticed that ingredients are lasting longer. Front of house we have a display kitchen where fresh food is made from scratch and people can watch it being made. Our ingredients are certainly keeping for longer than you would expect, and I believe it is down to the fact we have the HyGenikx machine.
