In horticulture, good hygiene is of great importance to prevent bacteria, diseases, and viruses in the greenhouse. Once a disease or pest is present, it will spread quickly and cause major damage to the crop. Clearing the crop is often the only solution. Because this cost a lot of money, and because it is a time-consuming job, it is essential to take hygienic measures that reduce the risk of contamination of the crop. A hygiene station (also called a disinfection gate) offers the solution. For many horticultural companies, the hygiene station is an indispensable device and one of the most important tools for keeping diseases and bacteria out.

A disinfection gate is an indispensable part of horticulture

When it comes to hygiene within horticulture, a disinfection gate is no less than a ‘must have’ and is designed to protect the production process from pathogens. In many cases, the disinfection gate is sited at the entrance to the greenhouse to ensure that everyone satisfies the hygiene requirements as soon as they enter the greenhouse. Employees disinfecting their hands and shoes at the point of entry helps to keep pathogens out. A disinfection gate is thus a sustainable investment, and contributes to the safety of your crops.

How a disinfection gate works

A disinfection gate helps to minimise the risk of diseases and bacteria being carried into the greenhouse. If they do manage to penetrate the greenhouse, further contamination can be prevented by fitting a sanitiser bin to your pipe rail trolley. This allows employees to disinfect their hands again when inside.
