Zip Water UK – its water refreshed.

Zip Water UK Manufacture a wide range of instant filtered boiling water systems that can also provide filtered chilled, filtered sparkling and filtered ambient water through a single tap. There are also products that, as well as giving access to drinking water, provide mixed hot and ambient water for washing up etc., either through a separate tap or an integrated All-in-One facility.

The Zip HydoTap underwent a major development in 2014, when the G4 range was introduced. This meant that the under-counter ‘command centre’ was upgraded so that it was up to 53% more energy efficient than previous models, with a new easier to install design and a touch-screen control panel.

HydroTap:

HydroTap dispenses freshly filtered boiling chilled and sparkling water at the touch of a button, to make perfect tasting healthy hot and cold drinks in an instant. In a typical office where a kettle is boiled on average every twenty minutes, HydroTap can save over an hour of working time each day.

Hydroboil:

Zip Water UK started life over sixty years ago as a manufacturer of hot water heaters. In 1975 the company invented the concept of an instant boiling water heater to replace kettles and urns. This led to the development of the instant, on-wall, boiling water heater as we know it today. For the first time ever the world no longer had to wait for water to boil. Boiling water was always available – instantly - at the touch of a tap.

Chilled Water Filters:

Zip filtered drinking water is so much cheaper and convenient than bottled water. Now you can have an endless supply of great-tasting, crystal-clear chilled filtered drinking water on tap at a fraction of the cost.

Hot Water & Instantaneous Hot Water Systems:

Zip has an extensive range of hot water products for domestic and commercial applications. The hot water range comprises a large variety of vented and unvented hot water systems as well as cylinders. For commercial washrooms Zip has a selection of hand-wash hot water systems.

HydroTap towers above all others

November 2015

The Gherkin, which has already become visual shorthand for the Capital and marks an evolution in ar-chitecture, is one of the city’s most innovative buildings, both in terms of its aesthetics and eco-friendly services. The design maximises daylight and natural ventilation so that it uses 50% of the ener-gy typically required by a similar sized office block.

The Gherkin is home to Kirkland Ellis, a large corporate law firm on the 22nd floor, representing global clients. Within its intricately designed atria, several breakout areas have been specially constructed offering the opportunity for rest, relaxation and refreshment.

Kirkland Ellis considered various options for the provision of boiling and chilled drinking water, but felt that working in such an innovative environment they should consider the design value of any such prod-ucts and so decided on the Zip HydroTap.

HydroTaps are providing the ultimate in drinking water convenience to staff and clients at 30 St Mary Axe, often referred to as the ‘Gherkin’, in London – the ultimate in architecture on the London Skyline. They sit very well with the ‘eco-friendly’ design value of the building since all of the functions are energy-efficient, designed to conserve power and therefore delivering cost and environmental savings. Research by Aston University showed the Zip HydroTap to be up to 40% more energy efficient than a kettle.

Contractors BPR Interiors installed the largest of the boiling and chilled models, suitable for the provision of drinking water to up to 75 people.

The product can be mounted either at the side of a sink as in fig.1 or on the specially designed tap font and drain as fig.2. This means that the designer has total flexibility when they are siting the HydroTap and can, if required create dedicated drinks areas.

HydroTap is available as boiling and chilled, boiling only or chilled only. All are supplied with a sophisticated submicron filtration system that delivers quality drinking water, removing bad taste and odour and limiting the effect of limescale. If the system is used in a hard water area, Zip also have a special filter which will eliminate limescale build up providing that the cartridge is replaced at 3000 litres.

To prevent accidental use of the boiling water facility there is a safety interlock device and this together with the ‘cool touch’ tap provides a safe environment for staff to access hot drinks. HydroTap also incorporates Power-Pulse™ energy saving technology, a programmable sleep modes and an integral 24/7 timer to drive down running costs and enable HydroTap to contribute to a greener environment.

ITV London Television Centre

November 2015

Keeping celebrities and employees refreshed at the touch of a button, ITV has installed 29 Zip HydroTaps at its London Television Centre Studios. Providing the ideal solution for this fast paced industry, the Zip HydroTap was specified throughout the 22 storey ITV building to widen the amount of drinks available, free up valuable space and save energy. Now, filtered boiling, filtered chilled and, in a number of cases, filtered sparkling water, can be en-joyed in an instant.

The Challenge

With hundreds of people working and visiting the imposing ITV building every day, each appliance had to be able to meet a constantly busy demand for drinks. As part of its refurbishment programme ITV wanted a straight-forward, energy-efficient and more compact solution to provide a wide range of drinks for guests getting ready for shows such as This Morning and Daybreak, as well as for busy staff and those eating in the restaurants, replacing the vending machines and kettles previously in use.

With many floors having limited access to kitchen areas, the contractors needed appliances that could be installed over a sink where possible or alternatively on a stand-alone drinks station, to help make best use of available space.

The Response

Zip’s HydroTap was chosen for installation in all office, green room and restaurant areas to supply filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water instantly, when needed.

Much smaller in size than the vending machines they were replacing, the HydroTaps have freed up much needed space across the building. HydroTap has the benefit of giving greater installation flexibility as each model could be fitted on a font for a stand-alone feature, or over a sink. Oversized levers were also selected for some of the models to allow even easier use by all, particularly those with limited dexterity.

The Results

Cutting out the time previously wasted waiting for the kettle to boil and with an increased amount of drinks options available, con-venience and time saving are just some of the obvious benefits coming through.

Minimal running costs mean that savings in both water and energy usage are also starting to take effect. Ensuring hassle-free up-keep, ITV also chose an on-going maintenance package to ensure that the HydroTap appliances are serviced and maintained by Zip’s qualified team of engineers, meaning each product will continue to perform at its best.

John Motton of Norland Managed Services, who specified Zip’s HydroTaps for ITV, said: “In such a creative, busy working environment, ITV needed a solution that would not only look good but would be able to meet the high demand for drinks whilst saving time, energy and money. I specified the Zip HydroTap throughout as it was able to tick all of these boxes.

“When working across such a large building, each floor comes with its own location issues. The options within Zip’s HydroTap range meant it was possible to be flexible enough to cater for each situation. The option to add extended levers on a number of Zip’s HydroTaps was also a real bonus as it meant we could continue the product range across the building but still ensure all visitors and employees were catered for.

“As a company wanting to stand out from the crowd, you have to fit the best. The Zip HydroTaps throughout the building have given a clearer, more refined look to the internal space, which in turn creates the right impression from the outset. Add to this the positive impact on employees’ working lives and overall energy cost savings we’re experiencing, and it is clear that the HydroTap range will continue to pay dividends for ITV for years to come.”
