Hand-Wash Sounder-Press Release

Hand-Wash Sounder-Press Release

Product News Wednesday, July 31, 2019: Mimic Components CC

Mimic Components recently launched their locally manufactured hygienic Hand-Wash Reminder Sounding device. The box is designed to help meet with the new South African health and safety regulations.

Typical operations are:

It incorporates a sounder with eight different tones, a volume control setting inside the box and a red indicator light. 
Every 30 minutes the sounder comes on for a short time with the light illuminating for a longer time. The purpose of the light is to act as an additional reminder for busy staff and to aid in complying with the latest hygiene regulations.

Operations can be modified or customised to suite.

Password protection can be added if necessary.

The housings for both units are IP65 rated so should not be affected by any normal kitchen washing activity.


Two Hand Wash Models:


1. Basic unit

 This model incorporates a sounder and light.

 It emits a tone every 30 minutes, which stays on for approximately 10 seconds, while the light stays on for 30 seconds.


2. Premier unit

This has built in speaker and flashing light.

It is supplied pre-set to times as above, with an airport type tone (“ding-dong”), so can simply be mounted and switched on. Extra features included are as mentioned below.


We have had feedback from some upmarket establishments confirming that the buzzer can cause irritation to both guests and staff, in addition to destroying the environments ambiance. Thus, we introduced our Digital Audio Notifier (DAN).This unit is in a smaller box and incorporates a small user input screen which allows selection of 5 different melodies, the volume and time settings. It also has a standard audio output jack that allows for connection to speakers in the ceiling or to another sound system (adding external speakers disconnects the internal one) and an output for a ceiling-mounted light, (flashing or steady), which can be colour matched to any theme. Instead of melodies other sounds can be used; e.g. seagulls, lions etc. DAN can also be used for any other timed repeated sounds or promotional messages (once set, DAN automatically repeats set sequences).
