The machines are designed to be used in either direction and can therefore be used to create any desired traffic flow (single-direction or bi-directional).

The standard spacing between units is 600 – 750mm depending if users will be carrying large bags or using shopping trolleys. To create a  wheelchair accessible lane, a spacing of 900mm should be used.

ARUP are able to utilise the advanced MassMotion modelling software. Together with their market-leading expertise, MassMotion provides the ideal platform to plan and validate the deployment of SwiftZap units, giving confidence on spacing, processing capacity, wait times and people flow.


The SwiftZap unit uses a water-based sanitiser solution with benzlkonium chloride as the key active ingredient.

Benzalkonium chloride can be used in much lower concentrations and does not cause the familiar 'burn' feeling you might know from using alcohol hand sanitiser. It is often used for people who have to sanitise their hands a lot. As the solution is water-based it also removes the hazardous fire risk associated with an alcohol-based sanitiser.
