With billions of passengers travelling by rail, air and road every year, UK transport providers have a unique challenge when it comes to providing water to customers and staff. User numbers have the potential to be consistently higher than in almost any other permanent location. Yet equipment reliability is only one of the considerations that managers need to take into account when looking to upgrade or install drinking water dispensers.
That’s why our team of experienced professionals are on hand to help you select the best bottle fillers and drinking fountains for your sites.
What can expect when working with MIW?
The MIW catalogue contains bottle fillers, watercoolers and drinking fountains to suit all environments and all budgets.
Whether you require an indoor or outdoor water dispenser, we can supply high-tech units with features like low-energy eco-cooling systems; lead reduction filtration, and UV filters. These are able to destroy 99.99% of all waterborne microorganisms – including E. coli, legionella, cryptosporidium and giardia – without affecting the taste or smell of the water.
Government and water authority approval
We only work with WRAS-approved equipment. This means that all our drinking water dispensers have been rigorously tested to ensure suitability for public use. This certification not only assures user safety but also provides you with all the documentation you require for any water authority or Government inspection.
All drinking fountains and bottle fillers that we provide are wheelchair accessible and many have been designed for hands-free operation. What’s more, instructions can be simply displayed in pictogram form.
Drinking water dispensers are intended for public use. In high footfall areas, such as railway stations and airports, they can be exposed to rough usage or even abuse. We will never recommend a unit that cannot withstand heavy use or even vandalism. All moving parts are concealed behind security screw protected panels. The outer casings of most units are made from heavy gauge stain steel. Plus, with hands-free or push-button operation, there is little opportunity for water damage.
Customisation and branding
We know how important branding can be. That’s why we offer a customisation service for all our drinking water dispensers. From branded decals to powder coating in a colour of your choice, we will hand-finish your equipment to an exacting standard.
Security is a vitally important issue for transport hubs, so we’ve worked with some of our international suppliers to ensure that we can provide bottle fillers and drinking fountains with additional safety features.
These include fixed security shelves and specially designed access panels to prevent suspect packages from being hidden on or inside the equipment. We have also produced our own bottle fillers specifically for the transport market.
It doesn’t end with the equipment
Maintaining security is as much about people as it is about devices. This is one of the reasons why all MIW water cooler engineers are DBS vetted before appointment.
Everyone who works for us is expected to share the values of the company: responsibility, accountability and social understanding. We take pride in being friendly, approachable and always polite, whilst retaining a clear sense of professionalism at all times.
Our aftercare services can be tailored to your needs. Some businesses prefer to simply purchase their drinking water dispensers and deal with all other aspects independently. Others work with us on a turnkey rental agreement, benefitting from ongoing maintenance, servicing and periodical equipment upgrades.
UK transport hubs and network providers have the opportunity to make a significant impact on the ‘water refill revolution’ while delivering a much-wanted new service to passengers.
