Faucets: The Line of Defense for Building Sanitation

Cut Down on Germs, Costs, and Water Use

The main purpose of a bathroom faucet is to keep your hands clean. In a pandemic, cleanliness is paramount to keeping employees, patients, and customers healthy.

Types of Faucet

Sensor Faucets

How do Sensor Faucets Work?

  1. Touchless faucet sensor detects hands by infrared light
  2. Faucet valve opens and water flows
  3. User washes hands
  4. Sensor no longer detects the user
  5. Faucet valve closes and water stops flowing

Where are Automatic Faucets a good fit?

Healthcare

Healthcare is one of the fastest growing new and retrofit construction industries in the commercial sector. Hospitals and healthcare facilities need hygienic and bacteria preventative products to ensure optimum patient care. Zurn touch-free faucets are hands-free, sensor activated products that eliminate the likelihood of transferring germs and bacteria. Zurn also offers lead-free commercial touchless bathroom faucet models to further promote the health and safety of users in the healthcare industry.

Education

Schools and universities are one of the most at-risk commercial segments for passing along germs, bacteria, and illnesses. Converting to hands-free sensor operated products, such as Zurn E-Z Sensor Faucets, greatly reduces the chances of infectious bacteria being spread from student to student. Commercial touchless bathroom faucets are the best type of faucet for preventing the spread of Covid.

Office Spaces

Commercial office space is the ideal market for both new and retrofit construction. The conversion from manual operated products to hands free is becoming more relevant. As high profile offices renovate and build new facilities, it is important to offer modernistic designs of products, such as motion faucets and the promotion of hands-free faucet sanitation is preferred.

Transportation

Airports, train stations, and bus stations are just three examples of high traffic environments where germs and bacteria love to spread. Specifying and installing sensor plumbing products in high traffic environments greatly mitigates health risks with respect to spreading germs. Zurn motion sensor bathroom faucets are ideal for high volume transportation facilities to save on aintenance costs of replacing batteries and ensuring that products remain functioning for the end user.
