A Cork-based company is providing contactless water dispensers to businesses nationwide in a bid to help combat Covid-19 as workplaces and schools prepare to reopen.
Richie Madden, CEO of Aquafria said “I have 180 of these dispensers in our warehouse in Glanmire. They arrived over from Italy last week. I think the only way forward for us as a business now is to go contactless. The coronavirus isn’t going away any time soon and I think it’s going to make everyone rethink what’s safe and hygienic in the workplace into the future.”
The Aquafria Touch Free dispenser has a sensor that detects movement, allowing people to turn on and off the water tap without ever touching it. It also has a UV light at the end of the tap, which acts as a steriliser.
Aquafria Ltd. was established by Richie Madden in 2009 after a long career in the water industry. The company now has some 700 customers in the private and public sectors in Ireland.
Aquafria is offering a free trial to any business with a pre-existing water mains connection. The Aquafria Touch Free is available to rent for 12 months at a cost of €595 including installation and maintenance. All Aquafria technicians have received Covid compliance training.
