Elkay drinking water stations take off at Adelaide Airport

Six premium dual-height drinking fountain and bottle refill stations are now available for use at passenger terminals in Adelaide Airport.

The project is the brainchild of CIVIQ’s collaboration with Adelaide Airport, in response to customer feedback citing a lack of drinking water amenities in terminals. In particular, travellers expressed that there were no dedicated areas allowing users to fill up their drink bottles before boarding their flights.

With this insight, The Adelaide Airport began searching for a robust drinking water dispensing solution that could withstand high usages rates, be accessible for all users, and tie in seamlessly with the modern terminal architecture.

CIVIQ presented Adelaide Airport with a number of solutions, including a range of Elkay wall mounted drinking fountains ideally suited to indoor public environments. Management staff selected the Elkay SwirlFlo Bi-level Fountain with Integral EZH2O Bottle Filling Station, due to its sleek looks, all-on-one drinking fountain and bottle refill functionalities, and inbuilt refrigeration and water filtration.

The dual-height drinking fountain basins grant easy access for young children as well as wheelchair users. The bottle filler’s sanitary no-touch sensor provides a fast and hands-free way to fill up drink bottles.

CIVIQ Sales Representative, Brittany Thompson, worked with facility managers to oversee the product selection and installation.

“Adelaide Airport were great to work with. The Elkay SwirlFlo EZH2O is a great fit for the airport environment because the dual-height design of the unit means that everyone has access to drinking water.”

The brand new drinking water stations are available for both domestic main airport passengers and international travellers prior to immigration and on arrival. Travellers now have several dedicated areas for filling up their water bottles in easily identifiable and accessible circulation and lounge zones. These zones encourage users to move away from generating unnecessary waste from single-use bottled drink purchases.
