Tap manufacturer Schell has launched the Petit SC, a robust, reliable, highly practical and good value Self Closing Tap.
Designed primarily for heavy use in public and semi-public washrooms or in industrial and commercial settings, the Petit SC is simple to install and, when in place, is hygienic and highly vandal resistant, offering little scope for the accumulation of dirt or for accidental or deliberate damage.
The self-closing mechanism can be pre-set for a cut off time of between 6 and 15 seconds, allowing the customer to maximise water conservation. Water savings of up to 40% compared with standard hand-closed taps are possible, the company says.
The Petit SC tap has a body of DZR resistant brass and a highly polished outside finish of top quality chrome plate. The self-closing function is controlled by a corrosion proof cartridge within the tap, that gives reliable operation with very low actuation forces. It can be used for cold or pre-mixed water and is suitable for all but the largest of basins.
A wall mounted version is also available with a standard outlet length of 70mm which can be almost doubled by use of a 60mm extension if required.
