EASTON, PA. — Follett’s new 7 Series ice and water dispenser has been recognized with a Merit Prize for Workplace Design Aesthetics by Buildings Product Innovations 2011 awards. The prize was announced during the 43rd annual National Exposition of Contract Furnishings (NeoCon) in June.
Product Innovations recognizes products that demonstrate fresh new ideas in design and technology and selection of Grand Prize and Merit Winners is based on the product’s innovative and cutting edge qualities. The 7 Series countertop model was chosen for its sleek, compact design that fits under an 18″ wall-mounted cabinet and does not require any drains, which reduces installation costs and expands placement options. Additionally, its hands-free dispensing and antimicrobial protection reduce the possibility of contamination from dirty hands or cups.
