PPE dispenser – Labstract

Labstract has added a new dispenser to its range of PPE containers. The Mini dispenser has been developed in response to customers’ requirements for a small wall- or bench-mounted container, which can be used for various types of PPE, including safety spectacles, ear plugs, disposable gloves, face masks, hair nets and shoe covers.

Said to be made of lightweight durable acrylic and available in three colours, the Mini dispenser also features a hinged lid, which protects the contents from dust. The company adds that the  discreet wall-mounted system means that the dispenser can be conveniently located at the entrance to workshops and laboratories, ensuring that PPE is readily available for both workers and visitors alike.
