The agreement covers the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands. DIRO® is a filter system that is placed between the incoming cold water and washing machines, making detergents totally redundant. Tested by SWEREA IVF and has a proven cleaning effect according to the EU Ecolabel test for detergents. Allowing for reductions in energy consumption by 80 per cent on commercial washing cycles and by 40 per cent for the drying processes.
Mark Higson, SWF’s managing director said: “Our vision is to promote an allergy and environmentally friendly, detergent-free lifestyle in the UK. We are very pleased to announce that we have recently strengthened our relationship with SWATAB even further, by converting our previous distribution agreement in to a manufacturing and distribution agreement of the DIRO®, in order for us to specifically tailor the system for the UK market.
“Beyond cost savings for consumers who no longer need to purchase detergents and softeners, DIRO’s benefits are significant. Cutting down on chemical detergents leads to lower acidification in water sources. The DIRO® system reduces energy consumption by up to 40 per cent. And the service life of machines will be longer because, with ultra clean water without detergents, no residue or limescale build up occurs.”
