Meritech, Golden, Colo., introduced Sole Clean Dry Step, a fully automated footwear sanitizing system for dry and semi-dry production facilities.

Integrated with Meritech's CleanTech fully-automated handwashing systems, the Sole Clean Dry Step sanitizes any style of footwear in just 12 seconds. This new footwear hygiene technology features the automated application of a proprietary alcohol-quat chemical blend, which sanitizes and then evaporates quickly post application to reduce moisture accumulation around the system.

The Sole Clean Dry Step is cGMP-compliant, and automatically recharges at intervals dependent on usage to reduce pathogens and cross contamination risks at production, visitor, delivery and main entrances.
