BOXT has announced a COVID-19 SOS service to ensure the elderly and vulnerable are protected in the event of necessary boiler installations during the proposed extended isolation period.
In a bid to reduce the risk of infection, the company is also rolling out enhanced safety measures to ensure person-to-person contact is kept to an absolute minimum for those who are most susceptible, as well as the wider public.
This will include:
BOXT installers are also carrying out the following actions:
Because BOXT does not employ salespeople to physically visit your property prior to installation, this means only the engineer will visit your home. The company believes this is extremely beneficial in this current climate as it limits the potential of any spread. Rather than having multiple people walking in and out of your home and making matters worse.
Andy Kerr, co-founder of BOXT, said: “We have already seen a significant spike in installations in recent weeks as the UK prepares for lockdown. As every Briton over the age of 70 will be told "within the coming weeks" to stay at home for an extended period to protect themselves, we believe it is now essential we offer a service to support those who are most at risk for additional peace of mind.
“We have also reviewed our existing procedures and will be introducing enhanced safety measures including supplying engineers with face masks and disposable gloves to ensure everyone can feel secure during these uncertain times.”
