Traditional taps can add character to your washroom. Their simplicity, trendy design, functionality, and reliability, stand the test of time.
There is an enormous range available in design options. Choose a simplistic traditional style or select a fitting that adventures into a combination of curves, angles, sizes and lengths. A variety of finishes can also be applied, such as Ceramic, Physical Vapor Deposition and Polyester Powder Coat, leaving you with a tailored concept to bring to life.
If your objective is to achieve style and functionality whilst staying within budget, then manual taps are the most cost effective choice. Stainless steel is a finish on its own and is a popular alternative compared to applying other stylish coatings.
Manual taps also allow the user to choose their desired water temperature and pressure. From filling up a glass of cold water, to washing their hands in warmth, the advantage is it serves more than one purpose. It makes all the difference in user experience and this option offers a choice how they would like to utilise the wash vanity.
It is mandatory to have an accessible and inclusive built environment. There are strict regulations in place particularly pertaining to accessible facilities for persons with disabilities. Manual tap levers have been specifically designed with an extension in order to provide an effective solution for users who require easier access to the wash vanity. These taps are designed for effortless use and provide a smooth motion to operate.

The functionality, modern designs, hygienic properties, eco-friendly, and cost saving features, make a sensor tap a favourable option to consider in your washroom design.
This system has a long service life due to its durability to withstand multiple uses and reduces mishandling or potential vandalism. This means less maintenance and testing is required to ensure the taps are still functioning. The water pressure is also controlled and delivers an easy gentle flow, preventing the unnecessary amount of back splash. The incoming water pressure range is measured at 0.5 – 8.0 bar (7-116 PSI).
Sensor taps save up to 70% of water and energy. A controlled amount of water per use prevents unnecessary water wastage. Not only are your water costs lowered, but your energy costs are also reduced. The amount of energy powering a sensor tap is minimal. From battery run to cable operated, there are various power options available to suit your requirements. Energy prices are about to increase by 54% in April 2022, therefore, it is essential to take this into consideration and keep your costs down.
Revolutionary features such as a security timer and hygiene flush, have transformed the sensor tap system, preventing any misuse that may intentionally be inflicted. Should an object be placed in front of the sensor with intent to keep the water running, the default security timer will automatically shut off the water supply indefinitely. When the object is removed, the sensor will undergo a short reset and will become operational again. No interference or maintenance is required to resume the water supply.
Buildings that are unoccupied result in water sitting in the tanks and pipes waiting to be utilised. Whether it be the festive season or the waiting time for tenants to move in, the hygiene flush feature prevents serious complications that may arise during this period. Water that stays stagnant can lead to various problems such as waste traps drying up and the possibility of Legionella spreading in the water. This hygiene flush can be set to run for 20 seconds, periodically washing out the water to keep it running through the system.
