Nuwave Channel Partners has unveiled a new product from its Armor London brand which the company says will play an important role in protecting travellers from infectious diseases.
A finalist in the Best Electronics category at the upcoming 2020 Travel Retail Awards, Nuwave recently introduced the new powered by eKO:sense range for its Bitmore travel retail accessories brand in order to reduce its carbon footprint.
The lightweight and pocket-sized Safety F!rst Emergency Kit comprises a KN95 re-useable face mask, anti-bacterial hand sanitiser, anti-bacterial surface wipes, disposable gloves and a carry pouch.
According to the company, the kit is designed to offer maximum protection during the Covid-19 crisis.
The KN95 re-usable face-mask has been proven to block at least 95% of 0.3-micron test particles and offer PM 2.5 germ protection. Manufactured in four layers, it has a use-life of three or four days and is approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and Food and Drug Administration.
Proven to kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria in a maximum of two minutes, the 80ml anti-bacterial hand sanitiser contains 75% alcohol. It is CE approved with Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) documents included.
Meanwhile, the anti-bacterial surface wipes pack includes 10 disposable wipes treated with 75% isopropyl alcohol. Killing 99% of germs and bacteria within two minutes, the wipes are also CE approved and include MSDS documents.
Finally, the enclosed large white disposable, CE-approved gloves are made from nitrile rubber.
These four items are transported in a convenient, emerald green 180mm x 150mm drawstring carry-pouch in non-woven fabric.
The Safety F!rst Emergency Kit is housed in compact packaging (154mm x 104mm x 40mm), ensuring efficient use of retailer space. The full specifications and explanation of the kit’s individual elements are printed on the rear of the packaging.
Nuwave Channel Partners CEO, Hoj Parmar said: “There will naturally be a surge in demand for products like this in the face of the current global Covid-19 crisis. The core of our strategy is offering products which are relevant and useful to the traveller. In the present climate, our lightweight and compact Armor London Safety F!rst emergency kit very much fits the bill.
“We have already attracted interest from several major British retailers and secured substantial pre-orders for the new kit. Although the return of confidence to travel is some distance away, we believe this Safety F!rst product will attract a long-term demand and become a popular essential in travel retail.”
The Armor London kits are available to retailers from the week commencing 7 April 2020. Nuwave has also created a Free Standing Display Unit (600mm x 160mm x 960 mm) and Counter Display Unit (240 x 120 x 160 mm) for the product.
Meanwhile, the company is donating 250 Safety F!rst Emergency Kits from the first shipment to Watford General Hospital in London, England. Further donations will follow from subsequent batches as the Covid-19 crisis continues.
