New Hand Sanitiser Stations (SOLSAN) at Optus Stadium09 Sep 2021
Matrix Composites & Engineering is thrilled to announce the installation of four SOLSAN™ Hand Sanitiser Dispenser Stations at Optus Stadium. The stations have been installed in various locations around the Stadium – two near the train station, one near the Matagraup Bridge and the other near the Bus Station adjacent to Gate E. We are very excited to have the new SOLSAN stations in operation, ready to support the community in staying safe when away from home.
Designed and manufactured under the Department of Finance's Market Led Proposals (MLP), the SOLSAN units enable users to practice good hand hygiene in public spaces. SOLSAN is solar powered, touchless and automatic, and possesses bulk storage capacity (30 litres dispensing 37,500 shots before requiring a refill). 4G communication enabled, SOLSAN is the first of its type to be designed and manufactured in Australia.
We look forward to more units being installed across the Perth metro area, including locations at RAC Arena, Western Australian Museum Boola Bardip and the Perth Children’s Hospital (Department of Health (WA Health)) in the coming months. We are also very excited and proud of the specially commissioned artwork that adorns these units. Created by local Whadjuk Noongar artist, Kevin Bynder, the artwork tells the story of the 6 Noongar Seasons.
Two additional units will be placed outside the metro area – one in Mandurah at the Public Transport Authority's Mandurah Train Station and the other at the Museum of Geraldton. Designed to suit WA’s harsh and extreme weather conditions, we look forward to taking SOLSAN far and wide across the State.
