Disinfect & Protect
Summer 2020 – Spray Foam Magazine – Graco knew they had to respond to the global pandemic and that’s exactly what they did. Meeting product needs arising from Covid-19 and in response to numerous customer phone calls searching for a solution for disinfectant spraying, Graco’s engineering team, immediately got busy, working around the clock to develop a product with the performance, capability, and durability to spray disinfectants. After designing, then procuring the optimal components of construction needed to deliver high productivity and a long-lasting solution, Graco launched the fastest disinfecting application method available, the SaniSpray HP Airless Disinfectant Sprayer on April 24, 2020 and according to the company, the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
The entire SaniSpray HP line delivers high production sanitizing, deodorizing, and disinfecting everywhere. As businesses re-open, there will be an increased level and frequency of sanitizing and disinfecting and that is why Graco created a sprayer perfect for every job, from small jobs like salons to large jobs such as stadiums.
Conventional ways of spraying disinfectants is typically a slow, manual process that provides inconsistent coverage with drips and runs. Customers would have to spray, then wipe down the chemical in order to provide consistent coverage. Graco’s SaniSpray HP allows the user to take the guesswork out of sanitizing by providing consistent, complete coverage and in the least amount of time. One of the best parts is that each model is absolutely turnkey; add the disinfectant and start spraying. (See Table 1)
Graco recognizes that sanitizer and disinfectant needs change depending on the application and/or environment that they are applied in. This is why Graco developed a solution that sprays a wide variety of sanitizers and disinfectants. There is a list of compatible disinfectants recommended by the EPA and Health Canada available online.
Graco shared with us that they have seen that contractors want to do their part in helping fight COVID-19 and are considering expanding their businesses to include sanitizing and disinfecting services. Many contractors have already turned to Graco to help them apply sanitizers and disinfectants faster and with complete coverage. According to Dan Johnson, Global Total Markets Manager at Graco, “The need for disinfecting jobs is at an all-time high right now. The people tasked with completing these jobs are looking for ways to maximize their speed and productivity on every job. That’s why we invented SaniSpray HP — to deliver high productivity on disinfecting jobs so we can all get back to work safely.” Thanks to Graco, we are one step closer.
