Personal Protective Equipment
Being hygiene-conscious has never been more important than it is right now. The personal protective equipment below will help you protect yourself from bacteria and viruses at home or at work. You'll find face masks, gloves, floor sanitiser, hand sanitiser, and more on this page - ideal for businesses and households alike.
Protect Yourself at Home, at Work, or Outside
Personal Protective Equipment is the best way to protect yourself and those around you from the spread of disease. On this page, you’ll find everything from protective surgical face masks to biocidal floor cleaners, which will kill bacteria and viruses on almost any hard surface. Personal protective equipment is vital in workplaces to protect staff and customers. It’s also essential for use at home, to keep you safe as you commute to work or visit shops.
Face masks will protect you against some of the harmful particles that transmit in the air. They’ll also reduce how often you touch your face – something many of us do without realising it – reducing the risk of cross-contamination from your hands. More importantly, though, they prevent you from transmitting diseases to those around you.
Many harmful bacteria and viruses are transmitted through coughs, sneezes, and respiratory droplets when you breathe. Often, you can be infected with a virus and not even realise it (known as being asymptomatic), which means you can spread it to people who may be more vulnerable to it. By wearing a face mask, you’ll prevent the potentially harmful particles you breathe out from affecting other people, making them a vital part of any social distancing or PPE kit.
Our face mask section contains high-grade surgical face masks, available in multipacks to offer unbeatable value money. Click above and you’ll also find triple filter face masks, designed to be comfortable to wear for extended periods.
Our hands pick up bacteria from everything they touch. Your work keyboard, stairway rails, public transport seats, shopping trolley, and more will be crawling in bacteria and potentially harmful viruses. While thoroughly washing your hands will get rid of most of the bacteria or viruses on there, this is often not possible. For many, it’s better to keep these germs away from your hands entirely by wearing a pair of disposable gloves when they go out.
While gloves should in no way replace a regular hand-washing routine, they’re a reliable and inexpensive way to help improve hygiene standards. Just like with masks, they can stop you from picking up harmful diseases from things you come into contact with, but they can also prevent you from spreading diseases yourself. Some diseases can be spread by physical contact – if you’re infectious, gloves will help prevent you from transmitting that infection.
Hand sanitiser is a great way to break down harmful bacteria that might be lingering on your hands while you’re in public. It’s easy to keep a pocket-size bottle on your person when you’re out and about, using it to sanitise your hands whenever you need to. If this is all you need, you’ll find a range of options when you click the hand sanitiser category above. We stock multipacks of pocket-size bottles as well as larger 5L bulk refills.
Hand Sanitiser Dispensers
Hand sanitiser shouldn’t just be used by the public, though. At a time when businesses have a huge responsibility to keep their staff and customers safe, it’s never been more important for them to provide hand sanitiser to the public. We offer one of the UK’s largest ranges of hand sanitiser dispensers to help businesses keep employees and customers protected. Whatever your company’s budget or branding, and whatever quantity of dispensers you need, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for here. If you need a large number of sanitiser dispensers to cover a large, open area, get in touch – we’re always happy to offer quotes on bulk orders.
Floor and Surface Sanitiser
We all have a responsibility to keep our homes and workplaces hygienic and safe for everyone. We stock a range of surface sanitising products that you can use to disinfect almost any hard surface or appliance.
Our strongest surface sanitiser is Pro-Kleen’s Biocidal Floor Cleaner. It kills bacteria and viruses on contact with a max-strength, high-grade formula that can be used on any hard floor – even in hygiene-sensitive areas like nurseries and schools.
For day-to-day use, though, Pro-Kleen’s Surface Spray may prove to be more convenient for many people. It’s a 70% alcohol formula, so it’s effective against 99.9% of bacteria. That 70% alcohol content matters, as it’s the strength of alcohol required to break down the protective layer that surrounds most bacteria cells. Once this layer is broken down, the cell is neutralised and will die off.
You can use this Surface Spray on almost anything, from your floor to your desk to your computer keyboard. It’s especially useful for cleaning up your phone case, which can be home to millions of bacteria. If you’re concerned about picking up bacteria or viruses from surfaces around the home or workplace, hit the Floor and Surface Sanitiser category. You’re sure to find something that’s perfect for your hygiene needs there.
