Vale of Glamorgan Council 1st Council in Europe to Install Bottle Filler

MIW Office Solutions recently supplied an Endura II 4420BFDB outdoor drinking fountain & bottle filling station to the Vale of Glamorgan Council, making them the first council in Europe to have the unit installed. The outdoor drinking fountain / bottle filler was purchased for the Belle Vue Park, a late-Victorian park on the outskirts of Cardiff which is celebrating its centenary this year. The fountain was paid for by a group of local residents, who have raised funds to improve the park over the past few years by organising events ranging from Easter egg hunts to music festivals.

Belle Vue Park is used by most of the local community, including plenty of dog walkers and school children. The council chose the 4420BFDB outdoor bottle filler specifically because it caters to these two groups, with a bottle filler and dog bowl alongside the usual bubbler tap which is accessible to wheelchair users. This means that children can fill up their bottles ahead of a day at school, and man’s best friend can enjoy a hydrating drink without the need for a separate bowl. With a water flow rate of 1 gallon per minute, the 4420BFDB is also powerful enough to meet the demands of large crowds expected at the centenary events planned for the park this summer.

Manufactured by American giants Halsey Taylor, the 4420BFDB outdoor bottle filling station is ideal for installation in parks, school courtyards and anywhere else where hydration solutions must be protected from the weather. E-coat immersion technology provides a thick, even coat of paint which will prevent corrosion, keeping the fountain as hygienic and attractive as the day it was installed. With an added inline strainer and integral hood design on the bubbler tap, the 4420BFDB is one of the most hygienic outdoor drinking fountains on the market.
