Faucets, Auto-Flush, Soap and Tissue Dispensers, and Hand Dryer Systems
Reduce Operating Costs, Conserve Water and Energy, and Improve Hygiene and Safety
Given these unprecedented times, touchless fixtures such as faucets, auto-flush, soap and tissue dispensers and hand dryers are quickly becoming essential to provide a healthier work environment in commercial facilities. Touch free fixtures improve hygiene for team members and customers, reduce operating costs, conserve water and energy, and provide pleasing aesthetics.
With appropriate electronic sensor devices, quality training and posted reminders for healthy hygiene practices, individuals can significantly reduce the risk of absorbing pathogens via the mucous membranes or passing them on to others.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), proper hand-washing is the single most effective means of preventing the spread of germs that can lead to the common cold, diarrhea, and potentially to more serious and life-threatening diseases.
Restrooms with manual faucets, flushers, dispensers, and dryers are a prime breeding ground for germs. Touchless devices offer sanitary, hands-free operation. They only dispense product when the sensor detects a user and they can also limit the duration of delivery.
Designed to operate for a pre-set amount of time (when a user’s hands are in the active area), touchless faucets use approximately one gallon less (3.8L) water than a manual faucet which continues to flow while a person lathers and dries their hands.
“About 80 percent of all infectious diseases are transmitted via
the hands and we consciously or unconsciously touch our face an average of 16 times per hour.”
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that commercial buildings use 88% of the potable water in the United States. Water efficient fixtures can reduce consumption by 30% or more.
Certain brands of dryers with HEPA filtration (operating at the proper temperature and duration) remove 99.999% of viruses from the airstream. With touchless systems, companies realize energy savings over the facility’s lifetime, reduce water and wastewater bills, contain operating costs, reduce waste, and improve hygiene.
