Enware was honoured to sponsor the 2019 Sutherland 2 Surf fun run and walk.
The team here wish to send a big thank you to the 6200 runners who participated in this major fundraising event for Wanda Surf Lifesaving Club and we hope that everyone who attended the run stayed well hydrated through the day.
Sutherland 2 Surf is the Shire’s biggest community event and one of Australia’s longest running fun runs. It was a crisp start to the race, but a beautiful sunny day. The 11km fun run and walk is an opportunity for friends, family and colleagues to get together and enjoy the local sights through Kirrawee, Gymea, Miranda, Caringbah and Woolooware, finishing up in Cronulla.
Thousands of spectators and officials watched with excitement, and Enware was able to provide assistance with hydration at the event.
Enware was proud to set up two hydration stations featuring the Good Design Award winning Blueline™ Bubbler range. Participants particularly enjoyed utilising the bottle filler feature of the bubblers to grab a quick drink and fill up their bottles.
Enware has been designing and manufacturing spring-action tapware and bubblers since 1937. Made to last and designed to save water and reduce ongoing maintenance in challenging environments such as schools and local public areas, with barrier free models also available for wheelchair users.
The Blueline™ Bubbler range incorporates gentle, tactile and bright push down levers that are simple and easy to use for all ages, making it ideal for use in playgrounds, parks and sporting facilities. The integrated bottle filler provides a more functional and aesthetically pleasing way to quickly fill drink bottles. Its hygienic design encourages a greater consumption of water compared to relying on users to use taps in and around toilets which often are poorly maintained and cleaned.
The participants on the day reported that the Bubblers were simple to use, turn one way to drink, and the other way to fill bottles. The bright blue push down lever is lightweight so they can be used by even the most little hands, perfect for playground use. The water flow remains steady and constant, easily allowing personal preference set through built in regulators in each Bubbler.
The moulded mouthpiece is made from a UV and bacteria resistant polypropylene, co-polymer rubber chosen for its strong bonding and general durability, long service life, vandal-proof design, resistance to tearing and damage, yet it still provides class leading safety and soft feel for users’ mouth and teeth to reduce personal injuries from incorrect use.
The fixtures themselves are sand resistant, chrome plated, jamming resistant and tested in excess of 100,000 cycles. All main components are replaceable at low cost and spare parts are available for purchase. Service agreements could be put in place if bubblers are purchased directly by schools or Government Departments.
Overall, our Blueline™ Bubblers were well received by the participants on the day and much fun was had by all attendees and Enware looks forward to our ongoing support of the Sutherland 2 Surf next year.
