Description

The UK company that was established in 2002 has designed and manufactured a range of display models for use in the educational, renewable energy, solar power and water sectors. The showerhead water-efficiency model was developed in conjunction with a UK water company. The model demonstrates the difference in water consumption between a standard showerhead and a water efficient shower head. The demonstration unit shows that the water­-efficient showerhead gives equal performance to a standard showerhead, dispelling the belief that eco­-showers give inferior performance. It is powered by a 12 volt rechargeable battery pack which typically provides enough power for one day which is ideal for exhibitions and events. The model clearly shows the differences between two types of showerhead spray and a measuring gauge in the tray demonstrates the savings in water usage and also how a standard showerhead typically consumes nearly 5½ litres of water in 30 seconds (almost 11 litres per minute), while the water-efficient showerhead typically consumes just over 4½ litres (around 9 litres per minute). The product enables water and shower manufacturers to deliver a powerful message around the benefits of fitting water-efficient shower heads which deliver excellent performance and energy conservation. The unit is supplied with a wheeled base unit, lightweight back panel with four securing bolts, two 7.5L polycarbonate measuring containers , two chrome shower hoses, two chrome­effect shower riser bars, two automated chrome pop­up wastes, 12V rechargeable battery pack with mains charger, two 8L containers for filling and emptying plus 200 water purification tablets (100­day supply). The back board and graphics panels can be customized to fit clients branding and logos. The company is looking for a distribution services agreement with companies, educational establishments or organisations involved with promoting water efficiency or distributors working with or supplying products to water companies.

Advantages and innovations

The demonstration unit unlike many on the market is designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom to the high quality standards. The unit is self-contained, easily portable and does not need mains water or electricity so is therefore easy to use and install to support promotional and educational programmes that encourage the use of water efficient shower heads and/or water conservation such as exhibitions and events attended by water companies, water efficiency agencies and showerhead manufacturers . The product can also be used by educational establishments to promote methods of water efficiency

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
