Karcher and Sanoserv win the Golden Broom Award 2013
At the opening of ISSA/Interclean Central & Eastern Europe 2013, the KM 105/100 R P from Karcher and the Touch-less Disinfecting Services from Sanoserv were announced as winners of Golden Broom Innovation Award.
Winner in the Product Category for Karcher, the KM 105/100 R is a new compact ride on sweeper in the one metre working width class. The machine is equipped with an automatic filter cleaning device, the KIK (Karcher Intelligent Key) in combination with a new operating panel that leads the user and service engineers through the entire machine and a new main broom concept, whereby a self-adjusting pressure device controls the footprint of the main broom in three eligible steps (eco, medium, heavy).
Winning the Technology Category, the latest generation of Sanoserv touch-less disinfection solutions combines the effect of both spraying devices and disinfectants. The disinfectant is a highly effective, oxidising disinfectant that kills 99.99% of all hazardous germs and bacteria without posing a threat to humans, animals or plants.
Research and development is vital for the future of businesses, and for a sustainable future, the Golden Broom Innovation Award strives to encourage this by rewarding innovation.
