DaRo UV Systems opens new markets with WRAS approved products
Posted: Thursday 12th July 2012
A thriving British/Suffolk manufacturer is celebrating a major endorsement from an influential industry regulator – which it hopes will significantly boost sales of its water cleansing products.
The Suffolk/Sudbury based DaRo Group, has now received full accreditation from the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme for its more of its UV water purifying systems. This means that as well as the WRAS approved Saphir range, DaRo UV systems can now offer systems to treat flows over 450m³/hr.
Management at the company is confident the WRAS accreditation will help to boost sales of its innovative UV disinfection systems. DaRo UV Systems - the UV division of the DaRo Group – has sold more than 20,000 UV disinfection systems, which ensure water systems stay safe and avoid contamination, in the private and commercial water sectors. However, the WRAS endorsement will open up a host of new market opportunities for the products.
Julian Cant, company General Manager, said: “Obtaining WRAS accreditation is a huge development for us, as it would be for anyone working to the water supply industry. We have invested 18 months’ worth of time making sure our products receive the highest possible industry endorsement.
“We have sold more than 20,000 systems to the private and commercial water sectors, but now we can offer the product to water suppliers which have a public interest such as hotels, guest houses, rented properties large apartment buildings and office complexes.”
WRAS was set up to promote knowledge of water regulations throughout the UK and to encourage their enforcement to prevent waste, undue consumption and contamination of water. The body consults with the Government on behalf of the water supply industry.
The WRAS accreditation is of vital importance to DaRo UV Systems, which manufacturers, assembles and sells a range of UV systems, which purify water, ranging from those which kill effluent bacteria in potable water to those which purify rain water or recycled water from flushing toilets.
“UV light is becoming an increasingly popular method of purifying water and food because it is environmentally friendly. UV kills bacteria without using chemicals, and the less chemicals we use the better it is for our health and the environment in general. We supply a number of UV products, which customers use to purify their water systems,” added Mr Cant.
