Working closely with the LNER Project Management Team, MIW worked across a diverse range of locations for this project, assessing the suitability for the installation of drinking equipment, before helping the LNER team identify the best bottle fillers for their locations.
With health and safety being at the forefront of everyone’s minds during this project, MIW recommended the Branded Eco-Dispenser MAX UV Superchill for the LNER installations. With simple, contactless operation, the units pose no contamination risk for users. While silver ion antimicrobial protection shields the drinking fountains against the development of bacteria and mould. And cutting-edge UV filtering ensures that all potential impurities – including legionella and cryptosporidium – are removed from the water before it is dispensed. WRAS approval means that the unit is certified compliant with all water authority and UK Government health and safety standards.
Designed specifically for the travel industry – MIW has already supplied Eco-Dispensers to Heathrow and Gatwick airports, as well as Transport for London (TfL) and other rail networks – these units have been created for security. The tamper-proof cases and the security shelf on top mean that there is nowhere for bags, packages or other potential safety risks to be hidden. The sturdy design also means that the Eco-Dispenser is vandal-resistant and durable enough to cope with heavy usage. They’re also really easy to use and accessible to wheelchair users.
Prior to installation, MIW worked with the LNER Project Management Team to arrange the customisation of the bottle fillers. Each unit was branded according to LNER’s requirements and hand-finished by MIW.
