TotalityTM is our unique methodology designed to ensure our machines provide an exceptional standard of hygiene. It provides the assurance for every user that the water being dispensed is as safe as it is refreshing.

The importance of refreshment hygiene

The water you drink shouldn’t just taste fresh – it must be fresh and completely free of contamination. If not handled correctly, water dispensing makes an ideal home for bacteria. This is a significant concern, especially in environments where hygiene is key, and it’s essential that refreshment systems eliminate the dangers and deliver just what’s intended: pure refreshment.

At Borg & Overström, users’ health is our top priority. Which is why we operate Totality™ for complete peace of mind, perfectly complementing our commitment to Direct Chill coolers as the safe way to dispense water


Laboratory certified
99.999% bacteria-free

Before leaving our factory, every Borg & Overström appliance undergoes an anti-microbial, antipathogen, sanitising procedure. This bacteria-eliminating process is Sterizen™.

No other make of water cooler goes through this factory sterilisation process, which is why only Borg & Overström coolers are laboratory-certified to be 99.999% bacteria-free when leaving the factory.


sterilising system

Ultraviolet light destroys bacteria in water. Unlike chemical additives, it does this without affecting the water’s taste or purity, simply delivering the freshest of drinking water.

Viovandt™ is our directed UV light that shines on the water as it is dispensed, adding a further level of hygiene.


Biofilm, limescale and impact
resistant epoxy resin panel finish

Many surfaces unwittingly offer homes to a multitude of bacteria, especially inside scuffs and scrapes. This is why Borg & Overström appliances have a double-coated surface of Fynil™.

This scratch and impact resistant epoxy-resin material resists biofilm development and limescale cohesion for increased hygiene and longevity.
