Afa & Vendor unveil innovative Flairfresh washroom products
Interpack 2011 visitors were the first to experience Flairfresh™ – the innovative dispensing solution for washroom hygiene products that offers operational efficiency and sustainability benefits. Flairfresh is the first application using Afa’s Flair® technology platform that will be launched in the market.
Developed by Afa Dispensing Group (Afa) together with Vendor Washroom Hygiene, Flairfresh is a unique product range that, amongst other benefits, offers an alternative to aerosol based air fresheners and enhances the supply chain efficiency for Vendor.
All the dispensers use the same Flair® containers as refills. These are all-plastic bag-in-bottle containers that enjoy high evacuation rates and conserve the liquids in an airtight environment. The bottles can easily be replaced when empty (air freshener) or refilled (soap dispensers). The systems are designed such that they enhance the availability of the product at the point of use and that they perfectly fit the Vendor service model.
A remarkable development within the Flairfresh range is the air freshener. This product replaces the traditional aerosol can by a non-pressurized, propellant-free Flair® bottle. This pioneering development provides similar performance to aerosol packaging but is VOC-free and offers a safer and an environmental friendly alternative to existing aerosol based air fresheners.
The Flairfresh range brings a uniform platform for its whole range of liquid dispensers where all dispensers benefit from the same Flair® technology. The resulting standardization of parts and containers allows for economies of scale, while smart solutions to create dispenser variants and customizations reduce inventory. The absence of pressurized propellant gases in the Flair® container eases handling and lowers costs for storage and transport.
“Flairfresh is the first project bringing the benefits of Afa’s Flair® technology to the market and we were delighted to work together with Vendor to turn the Flair® concept into reality,” comments Dennis Stevens, the Executive VP - Business Development of Afa Dispensing Group. “Flairfresh offers environmental and operational efficiency advantages that make it an attractive alternative with true differentiation potential for the B2B janitorial market today and the consumer market in the future.”
“We are seeing the trend among our customers for sustainable dispensing solutions,” comments Alfons Daems, Managing Director of Vendor. “With Flairfresh, we anticipate the progression of this trend with a visually-appealing product line based on our philosophy of 100% availability of washroom hygiene to the end-user.
