Kaivac Receives Patent for OmniFlex Crossover Cleaning System

Hamilton, OH - Kaivac, Inc., developer of the No-Touch Cleaning® and OmniFlex? Crossover Cleaning systems, announces it has received formal notification from the U.S. Patent Office that its patent for the OmniFlex system has been authorized and will soon be issued.

The patent is U.S. Patent No. 8,544,141 and was officially issued on October 1, 2013.

The OmniFlex system, which was introduced over two years ago and was one of the 2012 Kitchen Innovations Award? recipients presented by the National Restaurant Association, allows users to customize a complete, cost-effective cleaning system to meet a variety of needs for virtually any task or surface in the building.

The foundation for the system is a trolley bucket that automatically dispenses fresh cleaning solution directly to floors as it is used.  From here, other components can be added, turning the system into an AutoVac machine for floor care and a dispense-and-vac, spray-and-squeegee, or spray-and-vac system to clean several types of surfaces.

"[The] OmniFlex system is a very unique product and we knew that from the moment we developed it," says Tom Morrison, vice president of marketing for Kaivac.

"The US Patent Office apparently agrees.  We now look forward to developing new ways the system can be used to address even more end-customer [cleaning] needs."

As might be expected by being a recipient of the National Restaurant Association's Innovation Award, the OmniFlex system has found a niche in the foodservice and food service industries.


 "A number of other industries and facility types are also starting to appreciate the features and benefits of this cleaning system," concludes Morrison.
