Handwash fountain technology offer many advantages over traditional sinks. Sinks, to begin with take up too much space. A lavatory can only service one person comfortably at a time, so accommodating multiple employees means adding multiple sinks. However, a fountain designed to accommodate multiple users limits the actual number of fixtures you need to install and thus make much more efficient use of floor and wall space.
Lavatories also notoriously waste water. People forget to turn off the faucet, and companies pay the bill. Hand washing units are different. Various flow controls are built into their design to ensure that only enough water is spent to wash the hands, not the floor, and not your money down the drain.
Many different models are available that feature various material builds, sizes, numbers of founts, and modes of operations.
Foot Control Hand washing Stations
The foot control mechanism is very convenient to operate. Some models include an emergency eye wash spout for people who get something toxic or potentially threatening in their eyes.
Infrared Control Hand Wash Fountains
The IR control uses state-of-the-art technology to sense the proximity of the human hand and activate the water flow at that point. This minimizes water waste..
