Viral Armour Sanitiser available at DWR thanks to Theo Rood


Theo Rood


Theo Rood from MJ Event Gear is a meticulous project manager, from creating magic at elegant gala productions to working on outdoor rugby events. Due to the Covid-19 lockdown in South Africa all events and large gatherings have been put on hold. As a result, Theo is taking on extra work as a forklift driver and warehouse manager for Viral Armour Sanitiser based in Johannesburg. Viral Armour Sanitiser is also now also available for purchase at DWR Distribution.


“I was very fortunate as a good friend of mine owns Mad Giant Brewery, the makers of my favourite craft beer,” Theo explains. “I have been a fan of their product for a few years.” With a ban on alcohol sales in South Africa – which was only lifted at the start of June – the Mad Giant Brewery has ingeniously been converted into a sanitiser manufacturing plant. Not long after, Theo was offered a job to keep himself busy during the lockdown.

Meanwhile, DWR Distribution, a company that supplies audio, lighting and AV equipment to the theatre and entertainment industry, is now, thanks to Theo, also selling Viral Armour Sanitiser. “In a time where people are adapting to continue to employ their staff, we have to commend Mad Giant Brewery,” said Duncan Riley of DWR. “I realised that Viral Armour Sanitiser was a well-priced product and that it was something that we could offer to churches, schools, theatres and businesses or for personal use. Discount will be given on bulk orders and clients can expect the same level of service – with a smile – from our team, whether they are purchasing sanitiser or equipment. We look forward to hearing from you.”

Viral Armour Sanitiser is a great hand sanitising product,” adds Theo. “With schools reopening, the sanitiser business is booming. We have been very busy, and my job includes looking after the warehouse, dispatching orders and helping to fill bottles.”  With gyms currently closed, Theo is often averaging 24 000 steps a day, and there is definitely no need for him to flatten the curve on his body! He is getting in his daily exercises, cooks a double dinner each evening so that he has something to pack in his lunchbox, and has been very grateful to earn extra income.


Frequent hand washing, in conjunction with social distancing, remains our best defence against the rapid spread of the coronavirus that is causing the Covid-19 pandemic. In line with World Health Organisation recommendations and safety guidelines issued by various government departments, all public spaces have to provide hand hygiene stations to be compliant with health and safety measures during lockdown of all levels.
