The benefits of hydration at work

Having either a bottle or mains fed water cooler from Mirage Watercoolers can have a

measurable benefit in terms of productivity in the workplace. Research has shown that even a reduction in dehydration levels of as little as 2% of body weight can influence mood, lead to greater feelings of fatigue and reduced levels of alertness.

Not only can staying hydrated help to improve our work productivity, helping us to perform better mentally and physically, it can also help to offset potential safety risks. For example, dehydration could lead to reduced […]

Housekeeping & Waste Management

Mirage Watercooler’s preoccupation is that the water delivered to the cup/bottle is of the highest quality. This relates directly to the sanitisation of all components that come into contact with the water prior to dispensing.

Convenience – With a bottle fed cooler one has to buy, store and carry bottles of water constantly throughout the year. With a mains fed cooler the only possible additional demand/cost is cups.

Cost comparison – Most water coolers from Mirage are rented and a mains fed cooler is […]

Water Cups and the ‘Plastics’ Debate

The number of customers enquiring about paper cups instead of plastic has increased recently. Historically paper cups were arguably more complicated in terms of recycling than plastic cups as they had a thin plastic membrane on the paper to make them water tight. To some extent that remains the case, however, Mirage are now able to offer the following which fit any type of cup dispenser on our bottle fed and mains fed water coolers.

The appearance of these cups is very similar to a traditional paper cup whilst Starch […]
