THE SMART BATHROOM IS HERE
The COVID-19 pandemic has led us all to think more about hand hygiene and what we are coming in contact with on a daily basis. In response, public places from airports to hotels and
restaurants are renovating their bathrooms into touch-free havens. That’s because removing the need to touch faucets, toilets, soap dispensers and door handles can reduce the
spread of germs and viruses – and give bathrooms a fresher, cleaner look and feel.
But this isn’t only true in public bathrooms – the same applies to the home. That’s why, when designing a new bathroom, or just looking to give it a hygienic upgrade, more and more
homeowners are going touch-free. If you’re looking for bathroom inspiration, have a look at some of today’s most popular touch-free solutions:
According to the renowned US Medical Centre Mayo Clinic, “Cold and flu virus-laden
droplets may remain infectious for several hours, depending on where they fall.
Viruses generally remain active longer on stainless steel, plastic and similar hard
surfaces than on fabric and other soft surfaces.”
Motion-activated sensor faucets prevent your family from having to touch faucet
handles and pick up each other’s germs. Touch-free faucets also let you save water by
limiting the flow time and ensuring automatic shut-off. A wide range of stylish infrared
traditional and wall-mounted taps are available.
TOUCH-FREE TOILET FLUSHES
Sensor-operated flush buttons let your family flush with the wave of hand, saving them
from coming into contact with possibly the most bacteria-ridden touchpoint in the
house. Not only do automatic flushes prevent the spread of germs, but they can also
be programmed to supply a predetermined quantity of water, reducing your water
consumption. Our touch-free flushes are also hygienic and easy to clean.
TOUCH-FREE LIGHT SWITCHES
Light switches are some of the highest-traffic touchpoints in the home. Motion sensor
lights were growing in popularity before the pandemic, but sales have since
skyrocketed. And why not? They are relatively inexpensive, easy-to-install and offer one
small layer of defense against germs and viruses. Don’t forget to look for back-lit
mirrors with sensor switches.
TOUCH-FREE SOAP DISPENSERS AND GARBAGE CANS
Soap dispensers are just as likely to collect germs as light switches. We are used to
seeing them in public places, but there are also a plethora of attractive, affordable
touch-free dispensers available for the home. And, with a touch-free garbage can, you
can avoid re-contaminating your clean hands by touching a filthy lid. Again, a whole
range of options are available, including sensor and foot pedal-activated.
Whether you’re renovating your bathroom or looking to create a cleaner, healthier new bathroom for your family, consider going touch-free. With so many smart, attractive options solutions to choose from, you really can’t go wrong.
