Description

The SureFlo® touchless soap dispenser with 1 litre capacity has a vandal-proof 180º rotable lid to quickly refill from top, a portion control knob to adjust the dispense amount (from 0.4 to 3ml), a flush button for periodical maintenance and compatibility with universal bulk liquid soaps (from 100 to 19,000cP) that can be a more affordable solution than refill cartridges in the long term. The electrical components are made of water resistant materials. Furthermore, the different types of plastic in the rest of the parts will resist corrosion. To extend the service life of this item, use chloride-free and pH-neutral liquid soaps (never alcohol-based or iodine-based).

The sensor reacts in approximately one second after the user places their hand under the activation lens located inside the 170mm spout. LED indicators will show unit activation (green) and low battery life (red).

This system uses four type-D cell batteries that will last for 200,000 cycles or 2 years. These supplies are not furnished in the package. The mounting hardware and cable allow to mount the battery pack on the back or side wall for ease of access to replace batteries. There is an optional 6V A/C adapter (Part No. 3974-55 for non-U.S. compatible plugs).

As you can read in the upkeep tips, the manufacturer advises to flush the system with water every 3 to 6 months. Concerning the polished chrome plated finish, please, wash with soapy water and soft cloths regularly. 

The mounting requirements in the countertop are:

  • 35mm diameter mounting hole.
  • Up to 50mm thick countertops.
  • Clearance for the soap bottle and bottom housing: minimum 455mm vertical and 125mm horizontal.
  • Recommended location for the dispenser is 150-205mm from back wall and 64-75mm from the sink rim to the mounting hole.

Please, check the documentation below to download the mounting template and to see if the basin rim would interfere with the sensor range. There's also a useful installation video in this very product page.

Why to choose a counter mounted soap dispenser?

As we explain in this blog post, we think there are mainly three reasons to select vanity top soap dispensers over wall mounted.

  • A more accurate dispense, with little chance to missing soap shots and wasting the consumable.
  • A cleaner area that will be quicker to maintain.
  • Less wasted soap, which save costs for the facilities and the environment.
Anything practical to know about infrared sensors?

The proximity sensors in our taps and some soap dispensers use active infrared technology: they detect the infrared radiation that a close object (in their range) reflects back. This means that hands, washroom accessories or just even dirt near them will activate them.

Furthermore, infrared sensors can misinterpret certain situations and open the solenoid valve when they are not suppose to:

  • Mirrors and very reflective finishes (like polished chrome) in front of them will send confusing signals if they are closer than 1.5 metre to the tap. One must be careful for example with the elements of the basin bowl: the spout of wall-mounted sensor taps should be at least 300mm away from the bottom of the sink and not facing a shiny basin plug. Tap sensors can also react if a person is wearing striking garments.
  • Other infrared sensors opposite them also imply unintended triggers.

Therefore, we encourage you to read the installation guidelines the manufacturer provides and accept that accidental unlocks are a (rare) fact.

Which soap dispenser to choose in order to save costs?

We've gathered in this blogpost how to calculate the expenses and which factors bear in mind when choosing a soap dispenser.

Regarding soap dispensers in accessible toilets, what do English regulations recommend?

Approved Document M mentions two matters that would affect soap dispensers: contrast and location.

1) Bathroom fittings must have enough contrast among them and with the floor or walls, so that people with visual impairments or other conditions (dementia) can distinguish them.

Every surface has a LRV (light reflectance value) score. The difference between two finishes should be at least 30 points according to Document M. For example, white (85) can be combined with brushed stainless steel (45), but not with beige (70).

2) Several drawings illustrate in Document M how the toilet appliances and accessories have to be placed and at what distances. Diagram number 19 describes a unisex wheelchair-accessible toilet with a corner WC. As you can see, the soap dispenser (SD) is located above the washbasin, at 800-1000mm from the floor.

For what these regulations say about taps, we can also conclude that soap dispensers should be easily operated by all type of users.

This information has been shared following the Open Government License v3.0 of Document M. 

Please, note that our interpretation could have mistakes. For further details about this, please, read the source text or consult a professional.
