The new Geberit tap system changes the thinking behind touchless technology in the washroom, with slimline elegant deck and wall-mounted taps that combine aesthetic appeal with optimum hygiene and clever thinking.
Electronic washbasin taps are the hygienic, water-saving option for washrooms, and now they are as big on aesthetic values as they are on practical advantages, thanks to the new Geberit tap system. Making installation straightforward and creating a clean, minimal finish, all the fixings are neatly behind the wall with a Geberit Duofix installation frame. This means that all the key components, including the robust mounting plate for the wall-mounted tap, function box, washbasin fastening and the drain, are height-adjustable, with the installation frames easy to adapt to suit virtually any installation.
The Geberit tap system works in perfect conjunction with the Geberit Duofix installation frames. All you see in front of the wall are the essential functional elements – the tap and the IR sensor. All of the controls are completely separate and housed in a clever function box in the installation frame, where they are easy to access yet well protected against moisture and manipulation.
Separating the outlet from the control provides more flexibility to create elegant designs for touchless taps, which now take on a slim, timeless and elegant form. Designed by renowned industrial designer, Christoph Behling, both Piave and Brenta are available as wall-mounted or deck-mounted options and can be combined with practically any washbasin design. The wall-mounted taps are supplied in lengths of 170mm or 220mm and leave the washbasin free for ease of cleaning, while the deck-mounted option has a high outlet, giving the user more space for hand washing.
With three power supply options which can be changed at any time – mains, battery or self-sustaining via a generator unit driven by the presser of the tap water – operation costs are minimised, while all the components for regulating and maintaining the tap, water supply and mains connections are housed in the function box under the washbasin, where they stay safe and dry.
Remedying the general shortcomings of touchless taps in one smart solution, the Geberit tap system results in sophisticated ergonomics for hand washing, optimised hygiene and ease of cleaning and outstanding aesthetics for washroom design.
