The new addition, the AutoVac, which has already been certified by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), is an innovative system that automates floor care. Pre-introduction tests indicate it rivals the cleaning performance of traditional automatic scrubbers at a fraction of the cost.
The OmniFlex system starts with Kaivac’s OmniFlex Trolley Bucket. This system has a self-dispensing design with a variable spigot; these features ensure that only fresh cleaning solution is applied to the floor.
The OmniFlex Crossover Cleaning system already includes a variety of add-on components designed for different cleaning situations, including their Dispense-and-Vac and Spray-and-Vac systems.
The AutoVac can be used in conjunction with either of these add-ons; users may also select the “AutoVac Complete”--a preconfigured system that includes the Trolley Bucket, a wet/dry vacuum, and an AutoVac Add-on Kit.
An additional model, the AutoVac Complete 220V, is also available to meet certain international voltage requirements.
“We have been beta-testing this system for more than six months,” says Matt Morrison, Marketing Manager for Kaivac. “Overall, we have gotten very good feedback from users.”
Because of this Morrison says the OmniFlex AutoVac has been entered into ISSA’s 2012 Innovation Award Program in the Equipment category.
Morrison adds that the system will be officially introduced in August 2012 and will be on display at the upcoming ISSA/INTERCLEAN Tradeshow to be held in Chicago from October 16 to 19, 2012.
