The equipment of sanitary rooms is subject to constant change. Furnishing trends and normative requirements, for example for unrestricted use, determine bathroom design. But today, another requirement is becoming particularly important: hygiene.
The global outbreak of the corona pandemic requires a rethink of architecture and interior design. The topic of hygiene currently plays a special role in public sanitary rooms alongside design, function and quality.
Even with good cleaning intervals, sanitary facilities in schools, office buildings and buildings accessible to the public such as railway stations or shopping centres are fertile ground for a large number of pathogens and thus represent an increased risk of infection.
Besides the infection through the air we breathe, the transmission of viruses and bacteria via the hands is the second most common source of infection.
From the time we enter and leave the sanitary rooms, which are equipped with standard dispenser systems, we touch up to 20 objects - starting with the door handle, the soap dispenser and the lever of the tap.
The probability of transmission can be significantly reduced by well thought-out, hygienic equipment solutions.
