Touch-Free Bathroom Solutions

Gaberit Boasts Infra-Red and Touchless Design for the Bathroom

— June 26, 2020 — Art & Design
The COVID-19 pandemic has made consumers wary of what they come in contact with and since many place emphasis on the need for frequent sanitation and smart design, things like touch-free bathrooms become a more popular phenomenon than in the past. As a result, public spaces and businesses across industries—from travel and hospitality to dining and retail—are forced to rethink their in-person strategies to ensure the safety and comfort of their customers.

Swiss manufacturer Geberit comes with a timely solution as the company boasts its touch-free bathroom concept that includes things like infra-red wall-mounted taps and touchless flush controls on toilets. In addition, the company also calls attention to its already existing easy-to-clean finishes and products, which will certainly give peace of mind to both business owners and consumers.
