ADVERTORIAL A NEW WEAPON TO FIGHT HOSPITAL INFECTION: THE LOO


Health and hygiene are two things expected from hospitals, but recently, poor sanitary standards have plagued some healthcare centres.


Management standards, workplace culture and spending constraints have all been blamed as incidents attracting awful headlines, but things are changing and in well-ran institutions, hygiene standards are as much a priority for cleaning staff as for healthcare professionals.


There is a huge expectation for hospitals to be clean – any failure in sanitary standards can significantly impact on patient care, the health of staff and visitors, as well as the institution’s reputation. For healthcare managers, hygiene standards have moved to the top of the agenda – now, there is an important weapon available in the fight for cleanliness in hospital wards – the loo.


Propelair© is an innovative toilet solution. Designed and manufactured in the UK using patented displaced air technology, Propelair produces a powerful, high-performance flush requiring only 1.5l of water.


CLEANLINESS The super-clean Propelair improves sanitary hygiene while saving 84% water and reducing operational costs. Launched in 2013, it has secured authoritative, independent approval.


The Centre for Research into Environment and Health found that it cuts contamination by


95%, while the removal of contaminants in the water trap is total (99.939%), according to the Water Research Centre (WRC).


DESIGN As with other great inventions, the benefits are designed into the product. The rimless pan and patented removable hinge system, with its smooth contours, make previously hard-to-clean areas easily accessible, ensuring that all contaminants are removed.


No special cleaning products are required nor additional costs incurred. Cleaning is quick


and simple, and maintenance checks can be carried out efficiently and in timely manner.


COST Propelair can save up to 60% on commercial water bills, with return on investments averaging six months to three years. Propelair makes hospitals greener, providing freedom to allocate vital resources where it matters – in patient care.


Propelair has simply reinvented the toilet.
