Synopsis

Summary: We understand the importance of water for hydration, and well-being and the need for hygiene within the mental health and general healthcare sector with drinking water. There is a duty of care to ensure that everyone has access to clean, fresh water, free from pathogens and bacteria. Our speaker proposal would cover the following topical content:

Duty of care
Everyone to have access to hydration, clean drinking water.
Clean, safe water is fundamental to life.
Clean, safe water is also essential to recovery and well-being.

Safety
The Porpoise, anti-ligature, shallow, safe, surface mounted drinking water tap.
Anti-ligature faucets allows vulnerable people to safely pour their own drinking water without any fear that that faucet could cause them harm.
The Porpoise has an exceptionally shallow and smooth profile in a single case design, it is both robust and vandal proof.
Being able to self-serve drinking water ensures a balance between being hydrated and healthy.

Hygiene and infection control
UV-C LED – technology to reduce bacteria and viruses which could be present in water – ensuring clean and safe drinking water.
Carbonless filtration – maintaining chlorine levels for increased disinfection.
SensorBeam® / advanced technology – completely touchless drinking water dispense, no pedals of buttons to clean or which may harbour bacteria.
Antimicrobial – using silver ion technology to stop reproduction of bacteria.
E6 chilled only water dispenser has been designed to include all of the above and a single water path throughout the system to eliminate chances of pipework dead legs.
