Colour Coded Cleaning Equipment

November 18th, 2010

JBS Group has introduced a complete range of colour coded cleaning equipment – in line with the standard colour coding from the British Institute of Cleaning Science. The logic of colour coding is simple: use different coloured products in different areas and avoid cross contamination.

Red:            Washrooms
Yellow:    Clinical/medical/healthcare areas
Green:      General food/bar, catering
Blue:         Low risk areas

JBS has the full range of colour coded cloths, mopping equipment and brushes in our e-catalogue and our online shop.

Warm air hand dryers : A big health risk

October 15th, 2010

Paper towels are the way to go…

In November 2008, the University of Westminster – London, stated at the EUROPEAN TISSUE SYMPOSIUM, the final result of an interesting investigation. The investigation consisted on comparing the number of bacteria found before and after washing and drying our hands.

The result clearly showed the harmful effect caused by using Warm Air Dryers instead of Paper Towels. Hand Hygiene is the single most important way to prevent the spread of infection. Washing and rinsing do not remove all dirt and bacteria from the skin. It is drying that completes the job.

Warm Air Dryer +254 % - Increase the amount of bacteria.
Paper Towel         -77 

Drying Efficiency
 The results show that hot air dryers are considerably less efficient and slower, with an average of 47 seconds to achieve 90% of drying; this is almost 5 times more than the paper towel, which in 10 seconds gets the same percentage.

Therefore, it has been proven that drying with a paper towel is the optimal method, since it removes dirt, grease and bacteria from the skin, in areas where the air dryer fails to act.

STUDY CONCLUSIONS
In summary, the results of the study indicate that the paper towel should be used in places where hygiene is crucial and critical, such as hospitals, clinics, industries, schools, kitchens, public casinos and all sites where there is manipulation of food and many people living together.

Hand hygiene: The air drier increases the amount of bacteria on hands; while paper towels, reduce this amount.

Drying performance: The paper towel has a higher efficiency than the electric dryer in normal use. Speed: The air dryer takes 5 minutes than the paper towel to dry hands.

Looking to reduce your cleaning supplies costs?

September 13th, 2010

At JBSGroup.ie we get a lot of requests for cloths, duster, mops. We are happy to supply these at best price – but there is actually a better value method. A lower “cost in use” method of cleaning. By using microfibres, instead of normal cloths, mops, rags and dusters, customers will spend less on their cleaning supplies.

What is Microfibre?

Microfibre refers to synthetic fibres that measure less than one denier.(Denier is a unit of weight for measuring the fineness of threads)

Microfibre then is very thin.

The most common types of microfibres are made from polyesters and polyamides.

Why use Microfibre?

  • Less chemicals
  • Absorbing ability (7 times it’s own weight)
  • Lint free
  • Non abrasive
  • Quicker Cleaning

Does it save money?

  • Cloths and Mop pads can be washed up to 500 times
  • Quicker cleaning compared with other conventional products
  • Tests prove Microfibre products use less chemicals

What can I clean with Microfibre?

  • Glass
  • Mirrors
  • Chrome
  • Stainless Steel
  • Sanitary Ware
  • Counter Tops
  • Floors

So, microfibres are the smart way to clean up: the thin fibre attracts more dirt and requires less use of liquid chemicals.

www.jbsgroup.ie has a full range of microfibre products, including microfibre floor mops

New legislation for Temporary Roadsigns

December 9th, 2009

New legislation is now effective in Ireland relating to road signs when doing road works. In essence, I understand this Chapter Eight legislation to mean that you have to have a minimum of 5 signs leading up to the place where you are conducting your road works, and 3 signs on the far side of the roadworks. The size of signs varies dependent on the road/motorway status, but 750 x 750mm cover all roads, except dual carriageways and motorways.

Who is affected? – county councils, utility companies such a ESB, Bord Gais, NTL, Eircom, Sky, Waterworks and all subcontractors doing works along the road side. (Yes, this even includes activities such as surveying, hedge clipping and “de flooding” an area and other emergency services activities).

With all these construction and maintenance bodies having to comply with the new chapter 8 legislation, isnt there a less cumbersome solution than having to carry half a van full of rigid heavy signs? Well, there is a simple, lightweight, flexible modular solution made by a brand called Tri Flex: these road signs are fully EN compatible and are made of flexible prismatic material that rolls up, taking up minimal space in the boot of car/van. The tripod base can hold any of the roll-up signs (600mm x 600mm or 750mm x750mm etc) from the comprehensive range of standard symbols. Its as simple as 1,2,3 . JBS has started selling these road safety signs and you can order them by contacting us, find our contacts here.
