EXPERTS agree the main way to prevent the spread of germs in hospitals is for staff to wash their hands between patient’s visits. These guidelines, along with Galvin Engineering’s (GE) range of Healthcare Tapware, minimises the spread of infection in hospitals by providing appropriate methods of activating water flow for hand washing.

Other benefits arising from the GE Healthcare Tapware ranges are:

• conserves water — GE’s electronic tapware switches off automatically after use, is WELS rated and reduces energy costs

• improves hygiene — ‘no touch’ and elbow/wrist action activation reduces the spreading of germs and promotes cleanliness

• disabled compliant — ease of activation makes everyone’s experience more comfortable, regardless of age or physical ability
