CLEANING SEGMENT Vikan, hygienic cleaning tools specialist, is launching a complete concept – including training, dedicated tools and pre- configured trolleys – to help facility management setups improve their cleaning operations.

The unique concept is based on the insight that cleaning staff are critical to more efficient, profitable operations, and that better tools and knowledge are required to unleash the full potential of these vital employees.

Smarter trolleys

At the centre of Vikan’s new offering is a system of ergonomically designed, purpose-built micro-fibre mops and other tools that come on trolleys pre-configured for specific cleaning applications such as stairways, large offices, restrooms and more.

The trolleys are lightweight, easy to manoeuvre and stocked with application-specific tools as standard.

The trolleys can be further configured individually, giving customers the exact tools they need to meet highly specific cleaning challenges.

Instant information

Cleaning staff using the new trolley system are further empowered with Vikan CleanAssist on-trolley cue

closely with clients and contractors to meet project milestones. My technical background enables me to support our engineers to solve any challenges that come up during complex installations. I also work with CENTIEL’s project management team to guarantee all our projects are delivered both on time and on budget, every time.”

Skelton originally completed his apprenticeship in Electrical & Electronic Engineering in 2008 while at Benning UK, where he worked for six years in a variety of roles including product engineer, sales engineer and projects manager. He joins CENTIEL from AVK-SEG (UK) Ltd where he was a technical engineer for three years, responsible for design on turnkey UPS and Generator projects. Highlights at AVK-SEG (UK) Ltd included being technical lead on multiple high-value projects such as a large tier 4 European data centre, where over 40MW of UPS

CENTIEL is a Swiss-based technology company designing, manufacturing and delivering power protection solutions for critical facilities. Its three-phase true modular UPS, CumulusPower, known for its “9 nines” (99.9999999%) system availability and low total cost of ownership through its Maximum Efficiency Management (MEM) and low losses of energy, has now been installed in datacenters and comms rooms in over 60 countries across five continents.

cards and instantly available online guidance videos. These tools have been shown to accelerate training and improve cleaning efficiency, all adding up to higher productivity, custom-er satisfaction and business success.

“Cleaning staff want to perform at their best, but they don’t always have the tools and knowledge they need to do so. This makes it imperative for facility management outfits to push cleaning tools and knowledge higher up the agenda. Our facility cleaning solutions are designed to help do just that,” said Vikan UK Sales Manager Andy Freer.

A full-service partner

In addition to its range of microfibre products and cleaning trolleys, Vikan also supplies hygienic cleaning and food-handling tools for kitchens and canteens and a vehicle-cleaning range. This enables the company to serve as a one-stop shop where facilities management setups can find solutions to all their cleaning tool needs. facilities-cleaning/
