Local firm, McDonald Water Storage, has shown diversity during the COVID-19 period

Thursday, 19 November 2020

The COVID-19 period has brought challenges to all business sectors, but the main consideration throughout has been the protection of people against the disease, especially the vulnerable. McDonald Water Storage, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of hot water systems, has diversified its product range to help in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

It is widely recognised that copper contains fantastic properties to kill and prevent bacteria growth. In fact, 99 per cent of the bacterial population introduced into a copper plumbing system, will disappear in under five hours.

With this in mind, the launch of COPPERtouch, an innovative range of surface protection products, utilises the company’s material of choice – copper – to make the range of products. The options consist of door push plates, either 1.6mm solid copper or self-adhesive, and handle overlays that can be used on doors or machinery handles, all preventing the spread of germs in buildings.

David Stewart, Sales Director, McDonald Water Storage, said:

“Protection of businesses staff and visitors has never been more important than today. Our antimicrobial copper surface protectors are an innovative weapon in the fight against cross infection in a wide range of applications. Easily retrofitted, they quickly destroy bacteria and viruses and provide increased protection and peace of mind.”

In addition, they also introduced WHEELIflow, a temporary emergency hot water solution. The rational behind the new product was to enable landlords and repair companies to provide emergency hot water for a property either during planned maintenance work or where the original hot water source has failed. This would allow for the repair to be made at a time convenient for the resident.
