Andatech, the company who pioneered the consumer market for breath alcohol testers, is encouraging owners of bars, clubs, entertainment venues and other establishments that serve alcohol to install a fixed or bartop coin operated breathalyser machine in their place of business.
Although bartenders are trained to recognize when a patron has had too much to drink, an onsite breathalyser supports their decision. When customers actually see their blood alcohol concentration (BAC), they are less likely to get into their car and drive.
The Andatech AL3500F works like similar vending machines, with step-by-step audio and visual cues to direct the user when taking the breath test and reading its results. It is equipped with fuel cell technology, which provides the highest rate of blood alcohol concentration (BAC) accuracy. To begin the alcohol test, the Andatech AL3500F dispenses a cylindrical straw for the user to breathe into so the sensor can calculate alcohol content. The BAC results are provided within 10 seconds.
The compact bartop design of the Andatech AL3500F is unobtrusive and allows for privacy when testing. It can be placed on the top of a bar, on a corner table, or mounted on a wall.
According to an Andatech spokesperson, the coin operated breathalyser is being well received by owners of bars, clubs, pubs and entertainment venues because the device enables them to promote safe driving in a way that doesn’t impact their bar revenue. Most establishments that serve alcohol realize most of their profit from drink sales.
As a coin operated breath test, the Andatech AL3500F also offers alcohol-serving establishments an additional means of earning supplementary revenue because once they make the initial investment of purchasing the breathalyser, they retain all the earnings from it. This earning incentive motivates staff to encourage patrons to use the breathalyser to determine their blood alcohol concentration before getting into their car to drive.
By installing a coin operated bartop breathalyser, liquor establishments can take a more active role in promoting responsible drinking and safe driving. It is expected that the effort will cut down on the number of drunken driving accidents and death.
Headquartered in Australia, Andatech is the industry leader in personal and professional alcohol detection breathalysers. The company distributes breathalyser devices developed for personal, workplace, transportation safety and law enforcement use. Vending opportunities for the Andatech AL3500F are also available.
