Universal Facility Furniture from UNION /Other/Union/News/2013/Easy-Clean_edited-1.jpg UNION has enhanced its Easy+Clean™ Facility Furniture with the introduction of universal handing, offering the same easy-to-open and clean-to-use product to end-users, whilst making it is easier to stock. The popular facility furniture – having been used across a broad range of healthcare and education environments thanks to its innovative TouchClean® technology, a nanotechnology coating used to reduce the risk of bacteria being spread from the surface of the ironmongery – has been enhanced to offer universal handing, addressing stockists’ common concern of limited space and having to stock multiple variants. The Easy+Clean™ Facility Furniture remains compatible on any project – whether left or right-handing is required – while stocking the universal variant takes up less space when storage is at a premium.Changing the handing is a quick and convenient adjustment – by simply removing the screw and locking collar from the pre-assembled product, sliding off the bolt and reaffixing to the desired handing, the process is complete and the furniture is operational straight away.The simple change makes UNION’s Easy+Clean Facility Furniture ideal for a busy site environment, offering a quick adjustment, and saving the customers on both time and hassle. Lorna Ardern, Product Category Manager, Architectural Hardware for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: “We have simply taken a popular product, and made it more suited to stockist locations, where storage is at a premium. It’s important that our stockists don’t miss out on valuable sales and contract opportunities because of stock limitations, and this is a way of addressing that issue. “The Easy+Clean Facility Furniture has always been a popular product thanks to UNION’s TouchClean® technology – an anti-bacterial coating helping to improve infection control and reduce the risk of bacteria being transmitted from the surface of the ironmongery. Now it’s even easier to take advantage of the sales opportunity.” For budget flexibility, UNION’s universal handing facility furniture is also available in a basic variant, without the TouchClean® coating.
