Precision designed with top hygiene, usability, and elegance in mind without compromising sustainability, the Dolphin Alavo wash station is among the brand’s flagship products that demonstrate an innovative fusion of hygiene and design that’s unparalleled in the market today.
The entire global population has witnessed the massive impact the Covid-19 pandemic has brought with it. Millions have suffered the infection first hand with its symptoms; while some unfortunate million others succumbed to death, unable to cope with the aggressive health complications the deadly virus had on their bodies.
On the other hand, the health pandemic’s effect on a great number of industries worldwide comes with the ever-growing consciousness on hygiene, wellness, and generally staying healthy. This recent global focus on hygiene and well-being has now urged building owners, architects, and designers to take meticulous consideration of all relevant factors in designing today’s commercial washrooms.
With the shortcomings in the design of public washrooms being put under the spotlight, newly evaluated building codes and design guidelines are more stringently implemented now than ever, ensuring best practices in infection control measures are being adhered to, guaranteeing optimised washroom experience for all users.
With that said, guidance from various global authorities and organisations, including the World Health Organisation, the NHS for the UK, the CDC for the US, and the WELL Building Institute, among others follow similar protocols in line with promoting all their advocacies for safeguarding global health and hygiene.
The Power of Touchless Solutions
Preventing (and even eliminating) any risks of transmitting germs in commercial washrooms all boils down to an essential design strategy: minimising touch points. Thanks to the latest technological advancements, user interaction in a washroom environment can now be controlled to minimise if not eliminate unnecessary touchpoints with various washroom solutions designed with sensor technology.
From sensor taps to automatic soap and sanitiser dispensers, touchless paper dispensers and hand dryers, designing modern-day commercial washrooms that significantly reduce health and hygiene risks are now relatively simpler and easier to achieve.
And how better to illustrate this innovation and all the great benefits it brings than with Dolphin Solutions Alavo wash station.

High-Speed, Low-Energy HEPA-Filtered Hand Drying
No handwashing is ever complete without properly drying one’s hands, keeping them free of harmful germs and dirt and therefore avoiding any risks of contamination or infection.

From a technical perspective, HEPA filters eliminate 99.97 percent of all bacteria at 0.3 microns, wherein viruses are all larger than 1 micron when they are typically bonded to aerosols or small moisture droplets. These aerosols or droplets are produced when we breathe, cough, or simply talk.
