Prestige IFS8131A wall mounted sensor tap is cost saving and suitable for high traffic areas, yet with an elegant simple layout. Since the infrared sensor only opens the water flow when visitor's hands are detected under, this automatic faucet significantly reduces water waste and avoids bacteria transfer. Furthermore, the single water outlet allows to preset a constant temperature, cold or premixed, which can prevent from microbial proliferation, scalding or just freezing water in winter. The features of such a hands free tap make it suitable for commercial or public toilets, as well as hospitals or schools.
Comparing with traditional basin taps, its touchless and wall mounting design remarkably reduces cleaning needs in the vanity area. On the other hand, possible blockings and therefore maintenance are cut down thanks to a removable strainer and special needle.
Built for British pipe standards and most common water pressure levels, this smart tap is an excellent upgrade for contemporary washrooms with a lot of users.
According to manufacturer's tests, the mechanism lasts on average at least 5 years. Regarding the materials, brass has been well known for its durability. Misuse would not be an issue, because this wall mounted sensor tap will cut off water if running for more than 60 seconds. IFS8131A comes with a 240V>6V transformer and plug.
Should you intend to provide warm water, please, note that a blending valve is required to premix water before reaching the faucet inlet. We supply a couple of compatible mixing valves: thermostatic or manual.
Take into account that all taps need often cleaning of the filters. Also, we advise to disinfect the faucet internal parts once in a while. Beware too that other sensors and reflective surfaces (mirrors, clothes) could interfere with the tap sensor, so it is highly recommended to follow the suggestions of the installation manual.
