Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

GripHero starts the roll out of hand protectors

GripHero, the developer of a hand-protection dispenser that enables drivers to avoid contact with contaminants on fuel handles, has started distribution across the UK.

BP Whitehouse Services in Okehampton, which has over 1,500 fuel customers a day, became the first forecourt in the country to install GripHero. It sits on top of each fuel nozzle, ensuring that drivers can retrieve and wear hand protection without first coming into contact with fuel handles.

Over 250 forecourts will receive the dispensers over the coming month. In addition to independent forecourts, GripHero is being installed on franchised forecourts featuring major brands including Texaco, Esso, Murco, BP and Gulf.

The company says that by the end of the year over 500 forecourts will have GripHero in the UK and Ireland, with more to follow in 2019. Its research shows that despite 75% of people actively looking to keep their hands clean, four out of five people have trouble finding hand-protection at garages.
