V-ZUG creates deluxe revolutionary REFRESH-BUTLER for premium garment care
Whether it’s refreshing a designer dress after a night out or simply removing the creases from a tailored suit after travelling, V-ZUG’s new luxurious Refresh Butler appliance can be trusted to care for premium clothing with the minimum of effort, from the comfort and convenience of the home.
For those with a wish list that includes a home spa, personal cinema, and perhaps even housekeeper quarters, their interior designer should take note of V-ZUG’s crème de la crème appliance for caring for clothes; The Refresh Butler.
This revolutionary new freestanding appliance has the capabilities of refreshing and drying clothes, eradicating odours, reducing creases and eliminating 99.9% of bacteria. It uses a photocatalysis process with V-ZUG’s specialist steam technology to create the perfect environment for reviving clothing and textiles. This specialist appliance carefully and gently rejuvenates clothing, making it ideal for handling precious and high-quality clothing and coats.
It boasts four main features; the Refresh function artfully removes cooking, food and smoking odours; the Anti-Crease function reduces creases; the Hygiene function eliminates 99.9 per cent of germs and bacteria; and the Drying function provides a gentle environment for drying rain-soaked clothes and textiles that require special care.
This appliance makes all of this possible by using a gentle air flow which circulates throughout the closed circuit to condition the fabrics using the integrated photocatalysis technique. The steam floats through the air and permeates the fabrics helping to free germs and bacteria that are subsequently eliminated. These features are supported by an energy-saving heat pump to ensure efficiency. The user simply hangs items on the hangers provided or places items in the basket and actions the appliance via the touch screen display.
The premium Swiss appliance has been thoroughly tested and has been recognised by the German Hohenstein institute who awarded it an ‘Innovative Technology’ quality label. The manufacturer V-ZUG was also awarded the Plus X Award for the ‘Most Innovative Brand in 2014’, with the REFRESH-BUTLER also taking ‘Product of the Year 2014’ in recognition for its innovation, high quality and functionality. The WFK institute also awarded its Refresh, Anti-Crease and Hygiene programmes, whilst the Testex institute awarded its Anti-Crease and Drying programmes.
The Refresh Butler can be built-in to wardrobe units or placed freestanding into walk-in wardrobes, cloakrooms, utility rooms etc. It has a sophisticated, stylish design available with a fascia in stainless steel, white or black. It features a slick touch screen display which is intuitive to navigate. It is very quiet, emitting just 57dB(a) and measures H196xW77.5xD57cm. The Refresh Butler appliance is POA, but has a guide ‘retails from price’ of £14,400 including VAT.
