Bristan is continuing in its new product development drive for the commercial sector this year with the addition of a new infrared timed flow tap range to its tap offer.
The new range of infrared timed flow electronic basin taps has been designed to offer a cost-effective, entry-level non-touch option for all light commercial applications.
The new taps use infrared technology to detect human presence and switch on the water flow for a set amount of time to eliminate unnecessary wastage. In this way, the taps offer significant scope for water saving and, in turn, cost efficiencies, while also ensuring compliance with the Building Regulations and BREEAM.
As another core benefit, the non-touch mechanism alleviates the risk of cross-contamination, making the range ideal for use in all commercial premises seeking to optimise hygiene levels and ensure duty of care to the public.
The new taps are designed for a quick, ‘plug and play’ install, without the need for any earthing, helping to reduce labour time and money on busy commercial sites. Plus a ‘fail-safe’ mode for vandal resistance means the taps will not give a ‘continuous flow’ even in the event of the sensor being damaged.
The new range is positioned as the perfect complement to Bristan’s Pulse 8 tap range which features non-capacitance technology to harness electrical pulses from the body for the optimum level of detection.
Chris Tranter, product manager at Bristan, said: “Following a huge year of new commercial product development in 2014, our aim is to take it to the next level this year by honing our portfolio to ensure we can offer a ‘one-stop-shop’ for the commercial customer.
“With this in mind, our new infrared timed flow tap range has been designed to offer a stylish, versatile and cost-effective product option for all light commercial settings, such as offices, public buildings, schools and leisure centres. It offers the perfect cost-effective alternative to our innovative Pulse 8 non-touch; enabling users to benefit from all the core functionalities at a more affordable cost.”
