Handwashing is an essential part of building occupant wellness and it helps prevent the spread of viruses and other infectious diseases.
Incorporating automatic faucets into your touch-free restroom program makes it easier & more efficient for building occupants to practice good hand hygiene, especially in combination with other touch-free restroom accessories, including touch-free soap, paper towel, and hand sanitizer dispenser systems.
Many building occupants are even coming to expect automatic faucets in restrooms. According to a recent Healthy Hand Washing Survey by the Bradley Corporation, “91% of Americans believe it’s extremely or somewhat important that public restrooms are equipped with touchless fixtures.”
Why? Because restrooms have an increased amount of foot traffic and a large quantity of common high touch surfaces compared to other areas in a building. And let’s face it, not everyone washes their hands! Although thankfully recent evidence shows that this statistic is improving.
Automatic faucets are also beneficial to a facility’s sustainability program. Sensors recognize when someone holds their hands below the faucet and turns the water on, typically for a certain amount of time, reducing a building’s overall water usage.
WAXIE offers many styles and finishes of automatic faucets to choose from, including ones from brands such as Rubbermaid Commercial Products® and Technical Concepts®, allowing for easy coordination with other restroom fixtures for a cohesive look.
