ADVANTAGE Pure Hold now supply most of the UK’s leading food factories with Hygiene Handles, as major food processing companies including Warburton’s, Young’s Seafood, Aunt Bessie’s, 2 Sisters Food Group, Princes and ABP Meats have all introduced Pure Hold Hygiene Handles into their washroom factories.

These companies are at the forefront of innovation, pioneering how to use innovation as a competitive advantage to stay one step ahead of their rivals and win over customers.


FOR A KING Propelair, the UK toilet manufacturer that has revolutionised toilet flushing with a system using air and only 1.5 litres of water, is celebrating the start of its third year with a string of major installations and a busy order book for 2016. The technology has already been adopted by a number of local authorities, and its many benefits are being recognised by the education sector too, with a recent installation at Cardiff University. The Lyceum Theatre has also requested an installation for the New Year.

The Propelair system operates using displaced air and a fraction of the water used by most conventional toilets which in the UK average nine litres per flush.

Workplace washrooms can consume up to 90% of the water used in commercial buildings, but Propelair cuts usage on each flush by an average of 84%.

For leak-proof operation, water is delivered through a siphon. Maintenance is minimised because the bowl has no rim for germs to hide and the seat is a new design

The Pure Hold Hygiene Handles, which are mounted onto standard pull-doors in place of normal handles, release sanitising gel onto the hand of users as they open the door. Independent laboratory testing and field trials have proven that the Hygiene Handles are 98.5% cleaner than a standard door handle and users are likely to achieve 87% cleaner hands by using the system.

Most of these companies have invested in the technology within their communal areas like washrooms, changing rooms and the canteen to improve overall hygiene standards and showcase to customers that hygiene is taken extremely seriously, even outside of the main manufacturing area.

The move also helps to emphasise to staff the importance of good

to prevent it moving on its pins. Propelair toilets can be installed easily as a replacement unit or in new build.

hand hygiene at all times and will help reduce levels of staff sickness, something that can be a major cost to food factories each year as they employee hundreds of employees who work in close proximity to each other.

It is this strategy of pioneering innovation that is creating a huge competitive advantage for these companies over their rivals.

Business leaders across other markets like hospitality are now looking at the technology to help improve their competitive advantage, with Leisureplex Hotels Group being one such business. They are the first hotel chain to roll-out the handles across all 21 hotels in a bid to prevent the spread of germs this winter and protect guests.

Less energy is required for water and waste processing, so the toilet’s carbon footprint is reduced by approximately 80%. Propelair also reduces commercial water and sewage bills by up to 60%. Flushing takes three seconds and the toilet is ready to re-flush in 20 seconds – not the normal 2-3 minutes.

Propelair has all the relevant approvals and reaches the highest performance rating under BREEAM’s water efficiency guidelines. It exceeds environmental planning legislation such as Part G of the Building Regulations Code for Sustainable Homes. It has the BSI Kitemark, WRAS and ISO9001 globally recognised standards.

To make life easy for environmentally friendly organisations, Propelair has a finance scheme whereby the toilets can be paid for out of the water savings, so any site can have this exciting product immediately for no extra cost.

Propelair is the forward-thinking, caring person’s toilet. It greatly reduces use of energy, minimises maintenance, slashes water and sewage bills, provides staff with toilets that eliminate the spread of airborne bacteria and shows the world that you are a caring organisation.
