Hefter and Denis Rawlins team up to promote innovative scrubber-dryers across UK
Cleaning contractors and facilities managers looking to exploit innovative floor cleaning technology are the target for a new alliance between the UK's Denis Rawlins and Germany's Hefter Cleantech, which manufactures scrubber-dryers.
Hefter Cleantech has appointed Denis Rawlins - which has over 40 years' experience advising and supporting companies with their cleaning needs - to distribute and support its range of scrubber-dryers across the UK.
"Our aim is to bring innovation to the cleaning industry," says James White, managing director of Denis Rawlins. "That is why Rawlins has chosen to work with Hefter in the UK."
Speaking at an Open Day at the company's support centre in Sutton Coldfield, his Hefter Cleantech counterpart, Thomas Stangl, added: "Rawlins and Hefter Cleantech have a very similar vision and values, which makes them a perfect fit for us in the UK."
Hefter scrubber-dryers use a series of patented systems to extend the productivity of the machine that is the mainstay of floor cleaning in many buildings. Contract cleaners, specialist hire companies and resellers saw this clever technology at work in a live demonstration at the event earlier this month.
Thanks to their ingenious design, the Hefter scrubber-dryers' cleaning performance is not constrained even in awkward places and confined spaces. The patented Turnado technology not only allows cleaning right up to the edges of walls and obstructions, but also continuous cleaning in all directions - including backwards. Meanwhile, the VarioTech cleaning 'wings' adjust automatically to allow a ride-on machine with a 112cm cleaning path to pass through an 80cm-wide doorway.
Cleantech's Convert repurposing technology also aroused immediate interest. This rapidly transforms the Hefter Convert 82 stand-on scrubber-dryer into a high-speed burnisher via a Quick-Change head.
A wide range of buildings - from factories, warehouses and supermarkets to hospitals and sports facilities - stand to benefit from these capabilities to boost productivity without compromising high cleaning performance, according to Rawlins and Hefter Cleantech.
