Features & benefits

Enviromental & productivity benefits

The washbowl provides a time saving, hygienic and environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional process of chemically disinfecting, washing and drying plastic washbowls at high temperatures, and the problem of disposing of plastic which is almost impossible to biodegrade. It also saves money on energy consumption and clinical/landfill waste disposal.

Raising infection control standards

The detergent-proof washbowl, was introduced as part of an improvement collaborative at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust a number of years ago, contributing to a reduction in Clostridium difficile infection rates of 56%.

Award winning design

In 2011 our detergent-proof washbowl was awarded the Queens Award for Innovation. The washbowl was developed with help from clinicians to meet demand from infection prevention nurses who identified that re-using plastic washbowls without properly cleaning and drying was a significant infection risk. The washbowl is used by hospitals across the globe for hand washing, general surface cleaning, wound care, shaving, continence and patient care.
