This was confirmed by the expert jury at the ISSA Cleaning & Hygiene Expo in Sydney. Experts from the cleaning industry presented the new product with the INCLEAN Innovation Award in the "Janitorial" category.
This year was the seventh year that the INCLEAN Innovation Awards were presented. Four of the five categories received a record number of entries: Equipment, Services and Technology, Cleaning Agents, and Janitorial all saw numerous manufacturers competing for the coveted innovation award. Together with Pall Mall, its specialist trade partner responsible for the Australia/New Zealand region, UNGER won against 25 competitors in the Janitorial category. The jury, consisting of managing directors of major building services companies, the president of the Australian trade association, and the editor-in-chief of the magazine INCLEAN, selected the erGO! clean floor cleaning system for its special ergonomic properties and innovative design.
One great advantage they pointed out was the S-shaped telescopic handle which makes cleaning easier on the back and joints. Its S-shape as well as the rotatable handles enable the user to work intuitively and ergonomically. This allows the figure-eight movement required for effective cleaning to be performed with minimal strain on the shoulders, arms, and wrists. And this with significantly reduced effort.
Another innovative design feature is the integrated, removable bottle for cleaning solutions. This makes the erGO! clean floor cleaning system ready for use at any time. A separate bucket is not required, set-up times for daily cleaning are eliminated. The system offers clear advantages especially for spot cleaning: Users are significantly faster, more productive, and more efficient, increasing the area they cover by up to 76%.
Errol Goldberg, Managing Director of Pall Mall states; “Winning the 2019 INCLEAN Innovation Award is a real endorsement of innovation from UNGER and a product that can make a really impact in the industry for both the Contract Cleaning companies and their end-users”.
