Vaask

Best of 2021

Seeking to permanently replace the pandemic’s endless array of single-use plastic hand sanitizer bottles and always-empty automatic dispensers, Vaask is the superior solution for hand hygiene. Its recessed wall-mounted design establishes it as a permanent fixture in spaces, symbolizing the pandemic-altered world’s long-term commitment to cleanliness.

Inspired by the Norwegian word for "wash," Vaask greets your space’s visitors with a hearty “hallo.” You can only make one first impression, and Vaask elevates the hand sanitizer experience from tired to inspired with these premium features and benefits:

  • Robust: All-metal construction with premium finishes including brass and brushed stainless, as well as custom powder-coat finish options.
  • Refined formulations: Hydrating gels with modern fragrances and zero harsh chemicals.
  • Long-lasting: Eco-friendly cartridges contain twice the sanitizer compared to typical dispensers.
  • Flexible: Cartridges can be refilled or replaced, and the system also allows use of quality sanitizer from other suppliers.
  • Precise: A high-tech laser range sensor tracks hands to ensure no drips or mess. Ever.
  • Smart: Automated low-level alerts using intuitive LED displays.
  • Guaranteed: Five-year warranty on all components
  • American-made: Manufactured in Austin, Texas.

A recipient of the prestigious Red Dot product design award and honored by TIME in its 2021 Best Inventions contest, Vaask has attracted interest from architects, designers, healthcare facilities and educational institutions as they welcome back returning customers, staff and students. Plastic pump bottles were an immediate response to our need for constant cleanliness, while Vaask is the long-term solution for our changed world.

The Design Process

Founder Jon Olsen developed the Vaask hand sanitizing system to be a permanent fixture in buildings, reflecting the importance now placed on hand hygiene and with the goal of replacing the wasteful single-use plastic bottles so common during the pandemic.

Jon and his team spoke with numerous architects, designers, educational administrators and healthcare officials throughout the process to ensure Vaask exceeds today's hygiene standards and contributes to healthy environments.

At the core of Vaask’s design is a belief that a product should be adaptable, repairable and waste-free. Built to last and environmentally friendly, each Vaask hand sanitizer system comes with a five-year warranty on all components. To that end, all parts are accessible and designed to be repairable to extend the system's life far into the future. Each high-capacity cartridge is also recyclable and can be easily refilled or replaced.

Vaask’s herbal formulations use no harsh chemicals, and the system also accepts other quality gel products as it’s designed to adapt to the viscosity of any sanitizer.

A 25-LED array guides the user experience and provides automated low-level alerts so you never run out.

Sustainability

The global coronavirus pandemic rapidly changed the way we live, and some trends are here to stay — working from home, curbside pickup, and increased health and safety measures like hand sanitizer use. However, the public is also ready to get back to normal. Vaask allows architects, designers, healthcare workers, educational institutions and commercial building operators to do both by pairing safety with sophisticated design and long-lasting performance. Hand sanitizer continues to be more important than ever, as, despite guidance, research shows few people follow the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's 20-second hand washing suggestions. Vaask's formulations include alcohol percentages that exceed CDC recommendations to ensure the cleanest hands without any harsh chemicals.
