Nixon Plant Hire have invested in a large fleet of eco-static welfare units manufactured by the Luton-based company, AJC Trailers Limited.
This brand new order is for AJC’s EasyCabin environmentally biased, Ecostatic 22 and 28 welfare units. Although Nixon Hire currently operates a substantial fleet of EasyCabin welfare units, this is the first time that Nixon have opted for the EasyCabin Ecostatic range.
Commenting on their latest investment, Graham Nixon, Nixon’s Hire managing director said: “The decision to upgrade and enhance our temporary accommodation fleet was driven by demand from our clients requesting eco-biased units.”
“AJC EasyCabin have themselves invested heavily in innovation and green technology, therefore when we evaluated their Ecostatic units it soon became apparent that, in our opinion, these were the most environmentally advanced welfare units available,” confirmed Mr Nixon.
Lisa Gillet, AJC’s sales director added: “We are naturally delighted that a market-leading temporary accommodation hire firm, such as Nixon Hire, are committing themselves to our Ecostatic range. This is a testament to the foresight and creative thinking that our design teams are applying to bring real environmental benefits to all users of temporary accommodation. Environmental, energy-saving features are at the heart of the Ecostatic range.”
The Ecostatic 22 is an eco-welfare unit that provides safe and comfortable facilities for up to 12 people. The unit features a market-changing modern appearance compared to other welfare cabins in the hire industry. This modern cabin includes energy efficient technology of automatic start/stop generator functionality and battery charging, with simplistic heating controls and 12v LED slimline recessed ceiling lights.
There are also useful USB sockets, external lights and a fridge. Also included is a spacious canteen, plus hygienic toilets and a handy spacious drying room. Power is delivered via EasyCabin’s unique Ecosmart technology which regulates the power usage of the generator, reducing the fuel consumption dramatically when compared to the industry standard of a continually running generator.
The EasyCabin Ecostatic 28 has all the features and benefits of the Ecostatic 22; however this unit provides additional office space for two persons and is one of the most eco-friendly and efficient static welfare units available in today’s market.
