5 touch-free innovations for your post-pandemic planning

5 touch-free innovations for your post-pandemic planning

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the new era of hygiene hypervigilance, we've bolstered our range of drinking water systems to include an entirely touch-free range.

The innovative collection, which includes touch-free taps and water dispensers, is aimed at reducing touchpoints and the risk of contamination in commercial spaces.

The products have been enhanced or developed for the post-pandemic world and have been released to coincide with the gradual return of employees to the workplace.


Zip HydroTap Touch-Free Wave

The latest innovation to the HydroTap range, this sleek and streamlined HydroTap dispenses instant filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water without the need for manual touch. Infrared sensors activate the flow and a unique two-point safety lock prevents the accidental dispense of boiling water. Offering 25 times more effective filtration than a standard water filter jug, it is the market leading product.


Zip HydroChill HC03 Touch-Free

Ideal for reception areas and meeting rooms, this touch-free floor-standing water dispenser is mains fed and dispenses chilled or ambient filtered drinking water. It includes integrated UV sterilisation technology at dispense point and a nano silver surface coating that kills 99.9% of bacteria in 24 hours.


Zip HydroBoil Touch-Free Adaptor

This touch-free adaptor is a simple and low-cost solution for access to contactless boiling water. It is available for both HydroBoil and Econoboil models and is a great solution for ‘back of house’ areas and office kitchens.



Instanta SureFlow Touch-Free Counter-Top Boiler

Choose from on-demand or pre-programmed timed water dispense, for a contactless boiling water solution. Slimline and stylish, this product is also insulated for minimal heat loss.



Instanta SureFlow Touch-Free On-Wall Boiler

This contactless wall-mounted boiler uses infrared sensors to provide instant boiling water. It can be pre-programmed for timed dispense or operate on an on-demand basis. On top of this, being wall-mounted means it doesn’t take up valuable worktop space.


Victoria Himsworth, Head of marketing at Zip Water UK, comments: “The pandemic has shone a spotlight on workplace safety and our touch-free range is our way of helping business leaders and office managers welcome their staff back safely.

“Our products have been designed to offer impressive safety innovations as well as style. Not only do they reduce contamination but, with the fast and reliable dispense of drinking water, they limit congestion in communal areas.

“By investing in touch-free technologies like this, businesses can make employees feel safe and valued at a time when confidence is key to post-covid recovery”.
