The two mains water dispensers installed in Lewisham in 2018 were Halsey Taylor Endura II 4400BF pedestal bottle filling stations. Sleek, with a small footprint, but with a rugged durable build, they provided almost everything that the council were looking for in 2019. But understanding that additional service capacity would be beneficial, for this project MIW recommended the next model up – the Halsey Taylor 4420BF1U.
The Halsey Taylor 4420BF1U provides all of the features of the other Endura II bottle fillers – outdoor rated, vandal resistance, GreenSpec listing, low maintenance and easy to use. But with the addition of a drinking fountain alongside the bottle filler. This allows users who aren’t carrying a bottle to access fresh drinking water on the go. While the design makes the drinking water fountain accessible to people of all physical abilities, including wheelchair users.
The council also selected one Halsey Taylor 4420BF1UDB, which is identical to the 4420BF1U, with the exception of an additional dog drinking fountain being built into the design.
These units can also be customised in a range of colours and could be finished with the council’s logo.
As well as recommending suitable equipment, MIW worked with Lewisham council to help identify the best places to site the units within the council’s chosen locations of Manor Park and Luxmore Gardens.
