Diversey’s Antonella Rosina said she believed that this was the only no-touch, double sided mop system on the market. We were impressed by the rather novel fixing system in as much as instead of the more usual Velcro, it has plastic spines coming out at an angle from the plastic frame. These spikes are forced outwards when the mop is applied to the floor and they catch on the mop head and hold it fast.
When the mop head needs to be changed, a simple action draws the spikes in and the mop head can be released straight into the bucket with no need for the operator to touch the mop head at any stage of the process. For extra hygiene, both the frame and the plastic part of the mop head have and frame have passed microbacterial tests.
Another concept that we’ve not come across before is that of the colour coding system. As you can see from our photograph, there are loops of several colours; users simply cut off those that aren’t appropriate for the system being followed and they’re ready to go.
There’s also a lightweight, telescopic handle which enables the mop to be adapted to suit the height of each user.
