    Colour Coding System

    Colour coded cleaning equipment has become standard practice within food and beverage production. Products with matching coloured handles and heads can be identified quickly and easily, which is especially important within workplaces where a number of languages are spoken and can greatly reduce the possibility of cross-contamination.

    Benefits Of The System

    • The use of colour coded cleaning tools can greatly reduce the risk of cross contamination.
    • A methodical colour coded approach associates each product with a particular area, promoting inter-departmental and/or food-type segregation.
    • The majority of our hygiene range is colour coded, with up to ten vibrant, easily identifiable colours to choose from.
