Gum Grafter Takes Off
Stansted International Airport tackles the problem of Chewing Gum blight.
I.S.S Facilities Management, based at Stansted Airport, have purchased the Gum-Grafter Chewing Gum Removal Machine as a solution to the airports increasing problem of how to remove gum.
Stansted is a hub for a number of major European low-cost carriers, with 100’s of destinations being served by the airline. Stansted is the third-busiest airport in the United Kingdom and the third-largest airport serving the London area after Heathrow and Gatwick; it is one of London’s five international airports, along with Luton and London City.
The revolutionery Gum-Grafter Chewing Gum Removal Machine is being used by operatives at Stansted to remove chewing gum from both internal and external areas of the airport.
Rob Dixon, Managing Director of Go-Gum Limited commented: “I.S.S Facilities at Stansted Airport needed to find a system that could remove chewing gum from both internal and external areas at London’s 3rd airport. The Gum-Grafter machine incorporates a dual powered generator, therefore the machine can be operated using a 110v power supply for external use and 240v for internal operation. This facility gives I.S.S the flexibility they need to maintain a gum free environment for passengers and visitors to the airport.”
