Water Coolers, Fountains and Hot Water Boilers,
When performing physical work, particularly in warm or hot conditions, sweat output can often exceed water intake, producing a deficit of water in the body. Hydration in the workplace is therefore imperative, because dehydration can affect productivity, safety, health care costs and employee morale.
International studies of occupational accidents show that the lowest rates occur in colder months and the highest during the hotter part of the year, when the potential for dehydration is at its greatest. Inadequate hydration has also been shown to adversely affect decision making ability and cognitive performance, which may also impact job productivity and safety.
Some environments, such as industries where hygiene requirements and protective clothing prevent the consumption of food or drink in the working area, preclude regular fluid intake, and therefore concentration on the local provision of larger volumes of water before and after work periods is paramount.

Our Recommendations For Water Boilers & Water Coolers in Factories / Industrial Sites
Water Coolers for Manufacturing Areas
Manufacturing workers may perform intense physical labour in warm or hot conditions, producing a deficit of water in the body. Protective clothing may also increase sweat rates and safety equipment, such as face masks, can make drinking fluids more difficult.
Nevertheless, it is important that staff are encouraged to maintain hydration, and drinking water is a good choice throughout the day, as it is the zero-calorie option for fulfilling hydration requirements without affecting dietary health.
Glug Glug Glug’s range of Water Coolers are the ideal solution, by providing a constant supply of clean and refreshing water at convenient locations, easily accessible to all.
We recommend the following products for use in manufacturing areas:
Water Coolers for Warehouses & Storage Areas
Being dehydrated can have a negative effect on our alertness and concentration at work, the quality of our work, even our personal safety and that of others around us. This is particularly important in busy areas, such as loading bays, where there are numerous vehicle movements occurring throughout the shift.
It is important to prioritise hydration in order to maintain our mental and physical performance, and Glug Glug Glug’s range of mains fed Water Coolers are the ideal solution, by providing a constant supply of clean and refreshing water at convenient locations, easily accessible to all.

Water Coolers for the Administration Office
Manufacturing or Warehouse units still require administration staff, who are normally housed in multi-role offices away from the shop floor. As these staff may not be allowed on the shop floor for safety reasons, their offices need to incorporate all staff hydration needs, including beverage-making facilities.
Our mains fed Water Coolers are the cost-effective option to bottled water, providing a constant supply of clean, fresh-tasting water with the added benefit of no heavy lifting to change to a new bottle.

Water Coolers for Front of House Areas
People visiting your company will have travelled varying distances, and by different methods, so may not have had the opportunity to hydrate for some time. Providing them with a self-service means of refreshment while they await collection of their goods can make them feel more comfortable, and any delays perhaps a little more acceptable.

Water Coolers & Hot Water Boilers for Prestige Areas
When meeting with potential new customers, or providing hospitality to external visitors, it is paramount to make a good impression. Providing them with a welcoming hot beverage or a refreshing cup of chilled, filtered water when they arrive will set the scene, although there is little point in placing a mundane, plastic bottled water cooler or a tired old kettle alongside expensive high-grade furniture and fittings.

Rainbow Club Ltd, Exeter
Rainbow Club Ltd have been designing, making and colouring handmade satin wedding and occasion shoes for thirty years. With over 800 stockists, they are firmly established as the UK’s leading and most inspirational producers of this type of footwear.
This customer was looking to make cost savings on their existing water cooler contract, which at the time was with a different supplier. They were also looking to expand their existing premises and were mindful of the potential increase in demand that this would bring.
We visited the company and immediately established that we would be able to offer a 16.5% annual cost saving on the three existing water coolers that were installed there. Following further discussions, we were able to offer upgraded mains-fed coolers for the same price. The three existing water coolers were then replaced, with installation being free of charge, and an additional cooler was supplied to them when the building works were completed. We have subsequently supplied a fifth mains-fed cooler and upgraded two of the coolers to provide both hot and cold water.
We are in a competitive industry, and are always looking for ways to reduce overheads. However, regular hydration is essential in our working environment, and staff welfare is something we will not sacrifice to financial savings. Glug Glug Glug were not only able to offer us savings on our existing commitment, but also provide improved facilities, without increasing our costs.
