VALET BATTERY UPRIGHT (VBU) Truvox International

Cleaning teams can now ‘cut the cord’ and vacuum more quietly and productively following the arrival of the UK’s first cordless commercial vacuum cleaner.

The award-winning Valet Battery Upright (VBU) is a light yet powerful upright vacuum, designed for maximum productivity.

Built to Truvox International’s robust standards, the Valet Battery Upright weighs only 5kg. A convenient carry handle makes it easy to transport between cleaning jobs. Ideal for daytime cleaning, the machine works quietly and safely around people and obstacles with no risk of trips or snagging – or interruptions to switch power sockets.

Powered by a lithium ion battery, the VBU provides more than 60 minutes’ continuous runtime. A battery level indicator ensures the user knows when their machine will need re-charging. A full re- charge takes no more than 2.5 hours. The battery delivers 312W of vacuum motor power and a 3,000rpm brush speed.

The vacuum floats evenly over all flooring surfaces thanks to a self- adjusting nozzle, while a squeegee improves cleaning results on hard floors. Performance and productivity also benefit from an edge cleaning feature and full suction when the VBU is laid flat to clean under beds and furniture.

High filtration is provided by a HEPA 13 media bag. Replacing the dust bag is simple. The compartment unzips and the bag is automatically sealed as it’s pulled from the bag holder. Support videos on the Truvox website guide users on operation and maintenance of the VBU.

VALUE OF PLANTS CAMPAIGN Urban Planters Franchise Ltd

Urban Planters is an interior and exterior landscaping business, which has branches spanning the length and breadth of the UK.

We supply planting schemes for all manner of businesses, catering to any budget, premises and scale of works.

Since our business began in 1965, we have formed strong working relationships with facilities managers, building up a detailed understanding of the needs and challenges of the role.

With this in mind, we ensure our planting schemes meet access, budgetary and maintenance needs, as well as creating great-looking projects that bring workplaces to life.

We are conscious that office plants can be seen as an extra burden to a busy facilities manager. However, with a well-thought-out design, a focus on simplicity and good planning, plants don’t need to add to the workload.

In fact, plants have been proven to reduce stress and illness while at the same time boosting productivity, so plants actually solve a range of workplace issues for comparatively little cost.

Workplace stress can cost businesses heavily in terms of time lost. A recent Health and Safety Executive report found that stress accounted for 45% of all working days lost in the UK during 2015- 16 due to ill health. In helping to alleviate stress, plants have been shown to add real value to businesses.
