Why Choose Hands-Free Faucets

When we think about summer time we’re overwhelmed with thoughts of barbecues, pool parties, and the company of loved ones.  With an abundance of people and food preparation, there is always the threat of germs and food-borne illnesses.  Proper handwashing and sanitizing of surfaces go a long way to keeping your family safe and healthy.  However, there are even better ways to avoid the transfer of germs and bacteria…touch-free faucets and soap dispensers

Motion Sensor Faucets

Not only will this touch-free fixture help eliminate the spread of germs and bacteria, but it is also environmentally friendly.   The sensor ensures that water only flows if motion is detected. This feature ends up saving gallons of water over the years. Additionally, it ensures a mess-free way to clean dishes because it takes away the task of having to turn on the water with dirty hands.  The same can be said for touch-free bathroom faucets.

Touchless faucets are available in a variety of styles, from traditional to contemporary. They can be found in both single-lever and multi-spray models.

The most basic type of touchless faucet is the single-lever design. These have only one control that adjusts water temperature and flow rate. The sprayer is activated by pressing anywhere on the faucet body rather than moving a separate button or lever.

Touchless faucets with two control knobs offer added flexibility for selecting water temperature and flow rate. Some of these models also include an aerated spray feature for an even more invigorating shower experience.

Multi-spray models have three separate buttons or levers that allow you to choose between various spray patterns for your showering needs: aerated, pulsating massage, or regular spray with or without heat activation. These types of systems are perfect if you want to customize your shower experience every time you use it — whether it's just getting clean or relaxing after a long day at work!

Touch-free soap dispensers

Just like the motion sensor faucets, touch-free soap dispensers eliminate a common contact point where germs can be transferred. But the benefits don’t stop there.  These dispensers deliver a standardized dose of hand soap or sanitizer.  Less product waste means more money saved over time.  Additionally, they are easy to use, particularly for people that struggle to reach over countertops to access the dispenser.

Because of their modern appearance, both faucets and soap dispensers attract attention which can increase hand hygiene compliance.  Kids think they are fun!  It just might be the boost you need to create good habits and ensure the health of your family.

Touchless technology has become more popular in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a great convenience for busy kitchens, and it also helps keep germs at bay.
