Introducing the latest in backpack vacuum cleaning technology
Wightman & Parrish has been lucky enough to be chosen as one of the leading distributors of Pacvac, the latest in backpack vacuum cleaning technology.
The ISSA 612 Cleaning Times & Tasks shows backpack vacuum cleaners have a cleaning rate of 676sq.m per hour - some three times faster than a traditional upright vacuum cleaner which can clean at a rate of 208sq.m per hour. This means, by using Pacvac, you can save time by creating a more productive workforce.
Pacvac has also been designed to be ultra-light and work with the shape of your body with huge ergonomic benefits. You do not need to bend or stretch as much as you do with a canister vacuum cleaner as the weight is actually balanced on your back. This reduces strain on your upper limbs and back meaning musculoskeletal disorders, which was the reason behind 35% of days lost at work in 2017, can be prevented.
"We are very excited to be a Pacvac distributor, as we feel these machines will be suited to many of our customers, and will even help to reduce our customers' costs of cleaning," says Wightman & Parrish contract manager, Simon Ayres. "I believe it is a great product, with a powerful motor and suction, which is ergonomic and comfortable to wear."
Wightman & Parrish is an independent, family business, established in 1915, specialising in the distribution of quality cleaning, hygiene, healthcare and medical products.
