Glee New Product winner: Best of British – Airflow

Celebrating British manufacturing, the Best of British award was awarded to Airflow in 2022 for its “Bertie” Christmas tree stand. Talking about the win Airflow’s Managing Director, Lionel Huish said: “We created our Christmas tree stand based on the feedback we received from British Christmas tree growers who were frustrated with the quality of tree stands that were available in the marketplace.  We worked tirelessly, over two years, to develop an innovative design and solution to the problem, thus felt entering Bertie into the New Product Awards at Glee was an ideal opportunity to present our British designed and manufactured product to a mass audience.

“The move by the Glee organisers to hold the exhibition in June suited us perfectly, as it was well timed for buyers looking to place orders for the winter season. By winning The Best of British Award at Glee, we saw an immediate increase in enquiries and sales, particularly from Garden Centres and Wholesalers. We even saw Bertie showcased on Glee TV.

“The process of entering The Glee New Product Award was extremely straightforward, as the form could be completed through Glee’s online portal. Having been shortlisted, at the exhibition, Managing Director, Lionel Huish was required to present a two minute “elevator pitch” which was a great chance to unveil our product, while also gaining feedback from industry experts. This led to a huge increase in footfall to our stand from buyers who had seen our presentation and were keen to learn more about Bertie.”

Airflow will be at Stand 277 showcasing many of our popular building products.

Why not ask about our MIXED PALLET SAVINGS, available on our products. They allow you to try new products, while still being able to stock your regular range.

On our stand, we will have rafter roll panels, which are available from 300mm up to 1000mm, our range of buckets, including The INVINCIBLE Bucket, hygiene mop buckets, & the Mightyflex range of flexible tubs and buckets, as well as several of our decorating range, such as paint trays, scuttles, kettles and also our ventilation products too. We can’t wait to see you there.

Cleaning Considerations – Colour Coding and Ventilation

Colour-coding systems

Introducing a colour-coding system for your mop buckets, cloths and other cleaning equipment is a great way to make staff feel comfortable that they’re using the right products in the right areas and avoid any cross contamination. At Airflow, we manufacture cleaning products to the recommended colour chart for the industry, using four colours of red, blue, green and yellow. These colours can be transferred as colour coding on cleaning equipment so that products can be used in specific areas. This helps to set apart these cleaning items to prevent the transfer of bacteria through cross contamination.

The importance of ventilation 

Maintaining good ventilation and air flow through your site is also an important practical point. In colder months you may want windows and doors to be closed. If you have an internal ventilation system installed – increasing cleaning of these systems will prevent build-up of dust and other particles.

Do you know how to look after your Christmas tree?

These are our steps to help you have a sparkling success this Christmas:
1) At home, decide where your tree will go and measure out the space. Don’t forget to take a tape measure with you to the Christmas tree farm.
2) Select a healthy-looking tree with a good shape and shiny needles. The heavier the tree feels, the fresher it will be, as it will have lost less moisture since being cut.
3) Tap the base of the tree on the ground. This will show if there are any bugs and also check for needle retention. Some needle drop is natural, but if it is excessive, choose another tree.
4) Select a Christmas tree stand with a large water holding capacity, like Bertie. Bertie also has fold out legs to offer additional support and can secure all popular tree sizes 4ft – 9ft, in one stand. This means you can re-use Bertie the following year with your next Christmas tree.
5) Once home, secure your tree in your water holding, Bertie Christmas tree stand. Then top up every couple of days to keep the needles fresh.
6) To keep your tree fresher for longer, make sure the tree is placed away from direct heat, such as open fires or radiators. Allow plenty of space for air to circulate around it, too.
7) Check with your local council or Christmas tree grower on how best to recycle your Christmas tree.

Airflow launches The Mightyflex range of buckets and tubs

Having success with our Hoofproof range of flexible buckets for the equestrian market limited us. We found that the marine, as well as the decorating/building markets loved the flexibility of the product, as well.

At Airflow, we decided to bring all the flexible buckets and tubs under one title to extol the benefits of Mightyflex.

Equestrian and the farming industry use flexible tubs in everyday use. Knowing quality is what counts, our products are especially strong in the handles and the buckets are loved for their ability to push back out when animals tread on them.

Decorators love the ability to easily release old paint to reuse again, and the builders market find a use for all the range as well as the ridged products Airflow manufacture.

Available in a range of colours Mightyflex products come in a variety of sizes, that are competitively priced with quality at the heart.
