Universal Office Products introduce water-saving technology to their product offering

12th February 2018

Wakefield-based Universal Office Products has extended its product offering by introducing innovative water-saving technology into its facilities management service range.

The new product range 'soaked' utilises Oxyflow technology to transfer the flow of water into a molecular spray. Increasing the surface area of the water reduces the volume needed to perform daily tasks by up to 90%. The Oxyflow can also reduce overall energy consumption dramatically with the option for cold water only as well as hot/cold application. The soaked range can be installed into a number of conventional washroom taps and showerheads, making it a sustainable way for businesses to reduce their energy consumption and promote eco-friendly practices. With water shortages an increasingly common occurrence across the globe, technology such as this presents a tangible solution for organisations looking to decrease their carbon footprint and improve their corporate and social responsibility. Universal has already trialled Oxyflow in several small and large scale businesses across Yorkshire and beyond. One customer said, -We started the roll out across our 180 sites and our overall water bill has been reduced by 37%. We have monitored the flow on the washroom taps and on average this has been reduced by 82%. Universal hopes to roll out soaked technology into more businesses and organisations throughout 2018. Director, Steve Manley, says, -2.8 billion of us live in areas of water scarcity. The soaked range represents a sustainable and innovative answer to problems like water wastage and high energy bills.
