Touchless hand sanitizer dispensers match elegant décor, simplify maintenance
AUGUST 1, 2023 — AUSTIN, TEXAS — Hand hygiene company Vaask® today announced the Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel — a world-class event venue, hotel and gaming facility built by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians — is installing its touchless hand sanitizer dispensers to protect the health and safety of guests and employees while also simplifying maintenance for its staff.
The venue’s leadership selected Vaask because of its permanence, embodying the Tribe’s commitment to long-term thinking. The Southern California resort features more than 400 guest rooms and spacious suites, an elevated pool deck and a lavish full-service spa and salon, all designed and engineered to last far into the future. The elegant design of Vaask’s fixtures match the elevated experience so carefully curated throughout the complex.
“Vaask is innovative and pleasing to the eye,” said Samuel Ramos, Assistant Director of Environmental Services at Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel. “You don’t expect to see it just anywhere, and you have a real sense of luxury.”
In addition to being a CNIGA associate member, Vaask fixes the frequent frustrations caused by traditional hand sanitizer dispensers, including:
- No drips, no mess: Vaask’s PalmPilot® laser sensor precisely detects hands with the fixture instantly reversing flow if a person pulls their hand away. No more messy misfires causing damage to floors or creating slip-and-fall risks.
- No corrosion: Vaask features a peristaltic pump that is physically separated from the sanitizer to ensure no corrosion or contamination.
- No replacement needed: Built to last and backed by a five-year warranty, Vaask’s cast aluminum construction is a stark contrast to traditional plastic dispensers that are easily broken by frequent use.
- No making the rounds: An online dashboard automatically alerts staff when it’s time to refill. The dashboard and accompanying app eliminate the time-consuming chore of checking each individual fixture and also ensures dispensers always stay filled. This exclusive technology solves the most common problem with hand sanitizer, which, despite being more essential than ever before, is frequently not used as studies have found 77% of people report dispensers to be empty. Vaask also uses AC power or Power over Ethernet (POE) so there are never any batteries to change.
Ramos’ team installed Vaask dispensers throughout high-traffic areas, including the hotel lobby and spa entrance, as well as near the resort’s elevators.
“Vaask elevates the areas and starts conversations. From the design to the lighting to the actual product, it’s something people haven’t experienced,” Ramos said, adding that the customization options allowed the resort to perfectly match fixtures in each area.
Vaask Founder Jon Olsen added, “In developing Vaask, we specifically talked with not just healthcare professionals but also owners and operators of all types of facilities, from hospitals and schools to offices and casinos, because every space is different and needs a unique approach. Because we design, engineer and manufacture Vaask here in America as well as sell direct, we work directly with our customers to understand and solve their specific problems.”
And the guests at Yaamava’ can’t get enough. “They love the scent of the sanitizer gel and that it’s so easy on their hands,” Ramos said.
Elevate your approach to hand hygiene with Vaask’s award-winning, touchless hand sanitizing dispenser that complements your space and showcases your commitment to health and safety. Vaask (pronounced V-ahh-sk) is inspired by the Norwegian word for “wash” and embodies the desire for a more modern class of clean, blending state-of-the-art technology with sleek, sustainable design.
