Karcher’s B60/10C MopVac wins ISSA/Interclean Amsterdam Innovation Award 2014
The B60/10C MopVac from Karcher was found by the international team of judges, to have filled the gap between the mop & bucket and scrubber dryer.
Able to clean open areas up to five times faster than a regular mop, it is much more economical and cost-effective than a scrubber dryer. And the fact that there is no need for electricity or battery power (the floor is dried using a vacuum pump) makes this tool ultimately simple and cost-effective to use and maintain, as well as being eco-efficient.
“Across the various categories we have seen a most interesting mix of entries this year, a range of products that really demonstrates how much manufacturers are developing solutions that take into account the genuine day-to-day needs of their customers and fill in those gaps in products available that may have existed,” said Michelle Marshall, chair of the jury.
“As demonstrated in previous years, the sustainability trend is proving it is very much here to stay and we continue to see new products that use less water, energy and chemicals. Not only that, they have also been manufactured using more environmentally conscious methods and with an eye on the total lifecycle impact.
