English Español GripHero to provide over 1,000 sites with free hand-protection

Thousands of forecourts race to install hand-protection in battle against Covid-19.



Last update:

In the last week alone, over a thousand forecourts globally have taken British GripHero up on its offer of providing hand-protection dispensers free to protect their customers from the transmission of Covid-19 at the fuel pump.

The brainchild of inventor Oli Yeo, GripHero is a hand-protection dispenser, which sits on top of each hand-pump on the forecourt, so that the very first thing the customer interacts with is the hand-protection itself. This prevents customers from coming into contact with the fuel pump handle where Covid-19 could easily be passed from one driver to another.

Following the outbreak COVID-19 and its designation as a global pandemic, GripHero took the step of offering its dispensers free of charge to help stop the spread of COVID-19 at the fuel pump.

“In the last week alone, we’ve received enquiries and orders from operators with over 1,000 forecourts internationally,” said Oli Yeo.

At a potential cost of up to £3 million to the business in up-front costs for the UK market alone, Oli Yeo decided to provide the dispensers free of charge, as they are the only ones in the world permitted within the refuelling zone.
