Meet the i-mop – a full size scrubber dryer deck with the flexibility of a flat mop.
The first of its kind, the i-mop solves the problems of floor cleaning systems by combining the flexibility of a floor mop with the power and speed of industrial scrubber driers.
Most floors are still being cleaned by mop and bucket, because other floor machines are just not flexible enough to work in most spaces.
The i-mop makes it possible to clean any surface, with freedom of movement and great ease of use.
No borders or boundaries, this machine isn’t just designed for cleaning, it is designed for the cleaner.

Single-use towels offer the most hygienic way to reduce the risk of the transmission of viruses when drying hands in the washroom.
New independent research has found that single-use paper towels are the most effective way to dry one’s hands in the washroom and reduce the risk of the transmission of viruses.
The study indicates that they help minimise the spread of viruses including ones associated with various diseases, including those causing gastro-intestinal infections such as Norovirus and Rotavirus.
Single-use towels disperse fewer microorganisms into the environment than jet air dryers and warm air dryers and also help reduce the risk that viruses are blown into the faces of small children accompanying adults in the washroom.
The findings have serious implications for washroom facility managers in settings such as hospitals and restaurants where hygiene is paramount.

From 1st June 2015 all products will be labelled under the new Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
It is implemented in the EU via the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP), where previously chemical products were regulated in the UK under CHIP.
New red diamond shaped Hazard Pictograms will replace the orange square Hazard Symbols, though some of the internal images are similar.
The presence of a new Hazard Pictogram on a label does not necessarily signify a change in the formulation, and could just be a consequence of compliance with the new classification system
As before, a system of calculations and thresholds is used to classify products. However, some of the threshold levels under CLP are lower than under CHIP.
For example under the CHIP system a product would need to contain more than 20% of an ingredient classified as R36 (Irritating to eyes) to trigger an ‘Irritant’ hazard symbol but under CLP this is reduced to 10% to trigger a hazard pictogram. This may result in many products being classified where previously they were not.
