Infra-Red / Electronic Taps
Electronic infra-red taps release water on the detection of movement, and are very popular in commercial premises for hygiene purposes. Because you do not need to touch this tap, the spreading of germs becomes a much harder task. Whilst these electronic taps are best suited in schools, hospitals and leisure facilities, they can still be used domestically if required. Some taps need to be mains-operated, whilst others can accept battery power.

Go Eco with Infra-Red Taps
Once only found in posh hotel bathrooms, the infra-red tap has gradually made its way into the mainstream and is an affordable touch of luxury for any British home. The main benefit of this style of tap is that you don't need to touch the tap surfaces with dirty hands to turn it on; just pass your hand in front of the infra-red sensor and the water flow starts automatically. The temperature is pre-determined and always perfect, neither too hot or too cold. It's a safe and modern style and still popular with businesses as well as with residential customers.
All of the main manufacturers of infra-red taps are represented in our range. This includes RAK, the world's biggest maker of sinks and related products, and Intatec, the UK's leading brand in taps designed to minimise the risk of scalding. There's a wide range of different styles of taps available with infra-red operation, and these taps are suitable for most types of sink or basin too. Many are operated by battery rather than mains electricity, giving even more flexibility over where they're installed.
