The benefits of no-touch technology for commercial washroom settings


The hygiene benefits of no-touch are a vital element of any commercial washroom setting.

Adding infrared no-touch taps to your offering brings customers health and savings benefits and brings installers and contractors added-value sales opportunities.

What are the benefits of no-touch?

The obvious benefit of installing infrared no-touch taps into commercial washrooms is that by removing the physical contact element from the tap operation, the likelihood of spreading and receiving pathogens and risk of infection transfer is significantly reduced. This makes them an ideal choice for places where hand hygiene is essential, such as schools, hospitals, vets, and dentists.

No-touch taps also contribute significant savings in both water and energy. Traditional taps can use up to 10-15 litres of water per minute, and there is a chance that they can be left running. To mitigate this wastage of water and energy, no-touch taps only run when hands are in range of the infrared sensor. This can save your customers significant amounts of money too.

The ease of use is also an advantage for less able bathroom users. No-touch taps mean that the elderly and those with reduced mobility can operate the tap without having to grasp and turn it.
