CMS opens with Purus awards21st of September 2011
The German cleaning show CMS has opened in Berlin with the presentation of the Purus Awards for product design.
There were four category winners. In Machines Kärcher took the prize for its newly-launched B 40 C-W walk-behind scrubber dryer. The jury rated its shape, colour and function and decided that "ergonomically and design-wise it made sense and that it was in keeping with Kärcher's corporate design".
Unger was named the winner in the Equipment category for its ErgoTec Ninja window cleaning squeegee, which was praised for its "sensible and thorough work in developing the wiper, which features outstanding technical changes and design refinements as well as ergonomic handling qualities and a correspondingly well thought-out design".
In Washroom Hygiene the jury awarded the prize to SCA for its Tork Performance dispenser system, which it said offered "outstanding handling features".
Finally, Ecolab won in the Packaging Design for its the Pro Tec System safety concept for cleaning agents. The "appropriately understated design" of this logistics system solution impressed the jury.
