Kingspan Environmental is delighted to have won the 2017 HIA Hunter Region Industry Innovation award for the design and manufacture of a High-Flow filter system that also cleverly reduces overflow flooding on water tanks.
Kingspan Environmental Australia Business Unit Director Stuart Heldon says the High-Flow water tank filtration system is an Australian first. “This is designed to be the best water-tank filtration system on the market – and it’s also an innovative approach to stopping the common issue of dampness around tanks. The filter system is able to handle four times the volume of other standard tank filters, managing water flow rates of up to 600 litres per minute, while passing any remaining volume to a storm-water management system. Not only that but it has 100% filtration capability, and it even eliminates algae build up.”
Stuart spoke of his pride at receiving the award: “This award is a huge coup for Kingspan, following significant investment in research and development. Hunter Region Industry Innovation awards are held in the highest regard within the residential building community, and it’s wonderful to be recognised for leading the way in designing innovative products that have a practical application in the building sector.”
Innovation is at the heart of what the company does. Known for their longevity, experience, continued innovation and unrivalled customer service, Kingspan has been manufacturing quality, long-lasting water tanks and accessories for over 80 years. Today they’re a market leader and trusted source of expert advice for rainwater harvesting and water storage solutions for residential, commercial and rural applications.
“The world is rapidly changing – and so are our customers’ needs. Our focus on innovation means that today’s products can solve the problems of the future,” Stuart says.
“We’re committed to sustainability, and to designing technologies that promote efficiency – whether that’s our waste-water treatment solutions or our solar and wind power products.
“We’re really proud of our filter technology. Being WaterMark certified, this is a practical, high-quality product that can be used by builders, construction workers and plumbers throughout the country.
“I would like to congratulate the other finalists and winners in the Hunter Region Industry Innovation Awards. We had some great competition, and it’s wonderful to see so many companies taking part.”
