What Measures Are We Putting In Place To Make Your Visit As Safe As Possible?
Here at Fun Shack the wellbeing of our Guests and Team Members is our first priority. We have therefore put in a number of measures in light of the Current Coronavirus (COVID-19) to make your visit with us as safe as possible.
Zoono Microbe Shield Surface sanitiser (Z71)
All play frame/ play activities and customer areas have been sprayed with Zoono Microbe Shield Surface sanitiser (Z71) by an expert specialist cleaning company. This Sanitising germ protection spray forms an antimicrobial coating on surfaces that protects against 99.99% of germs/viruses and keeps surfaces sanitised for up to 30 days. This product has been found to protect against Covid-19 and has been used on the London Underground system for hundreds of tube stations and buses, and is also used by the NHS. Zoono (Z71) will continue to work even after our routine cleaning procedures, and we will still be doing the additional daily cleaning measures (mentioned below) alongside using this product. This has been sprayed on all seating areas, bathrooms, high- frequency touch points, all play areas and arcade items. We will have the centre sprayed on a monthly basis with this product.
Please find some of the additional measures and procedures below:
- Temperature Checks
All customers will be temperature checked before being allowed into the centre. Staff will also be temperature checked at the start of every shift.
- Sanitising Stations
We have fixed sanitiser units at our receptions for customers to use before entering. We also have a number of sanitizing stations located around the centre, including all main play areas entrance/ exits to allow regular use during your visit.
- Reduced Capacity & Session Sizes
Session sizes (centre capacity) have been heavily reduced in accordance with government guidance and to allow circulation space in our centre allowing you to social distance. We have now also introduced arrival timeslots to help regulate customer arrival times.
- Additional Cleaning Measures
Increased daytime cleaning to sanitise all high-frequency touchpoints. Play & activity areas are also cleaned regularly throughout the day, alongside nightly cleaning.
All tables and chairs are cleaned after each customer use.
- Activity & Play Areas
Where appropriate in activity areas we have introduced marked routes & one-way systems to make it as safe as possible. We have also removed some high frequency touch points play elements such as ball pools so the play areas can be kept sanitised more easily.
