It’s hard to overstate the level of responsibility that councils have for the people under their governance. Everything from safety and security to health and wellbeing falls under their jurisdiction, and this includes providing access to a suitable water supply.
At MIW we work with local counciles to provide the highest quality, most accessible and most reliable drinking water dispensers on the market, with bespoke options tailored to a variety of branding and technical requirements.
What can councils expect from MIW public drinking equipment?
Safety and hygiene
At MIW we only work with WRAS-approved equipment. Although it is not a legal obligation in the UK we believe that choosing WRAS-approved options is the key to ensuring quality and providing our customers with peace of mind. That’s because it’s the only way to guarantee that water supply apparatus is fully compliant with all Government – and water authority – guidelines. And that’s something we care a lot about.
Many of our drinking fountains and water bottle fillers operate hands-free. This significantly reduces the risk of cross-contamination. Most units also come with silver-ion antimicrobial coating to prevent bacteria from building up on the surface. Some of the most recent additions to our product line also feature lead reduction and UV filtration. This helps destroy 99.99% of waterborne bacteria, including E. coli.
The majority of the drinking equipment we supply is now wheelchair accessible. Hands-free and feature push button operation, to help ensure that as many people as possible can use it.
We also offer a selection of innovative new water stations with built-in freeze protection, to protect against cold outdoor climates. These are guaranteed for up to 25 years. We can also customise your equipment with additional freeze protection to keep it useable all year round.
We can cater for any aesthetic or branding requirements you might have for your water dispenser coolers. With our customisation options, not only can you enhance the visual appeal of your equipment, but also ensure that your branding is clear.
Security is key to public equipment – and this includes drinking fountains. By working with some of the world’s leading manufacturers, we can deliver vandal resistant water bottle refill stations and vandal proof water fountains with additional security features. These products include fixed security access panels to stop suspect packages being hidden inside the equipment. What’s more, all MIW service engineers are enhanced DBS vetted prior to appointment.
