The Franke Aqua131 is a WRAS approved Protronic-S battery operated sensor tap which produces a water saving, low flow rate of 6 lpm, assisted by a theft proof aerator with integrated flow regulator. This attractive piece supplies cold or premixed warm water to the user without physically touching the tap. Tough and durable with vandal resistant properties, this is made from brass and covered in a polished chromium plated finish.
Being WRAS approved it demonstrates compliance with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations or Scottish Byelaws which require that a water fitting should not cause waste, misuse, undue consumption or contamination of the water supply and must be ‘of an appropriate quality and standard.
It’s suitable for a host of locations due to the flexibility of a minimum and maximum water pressure range between 1bar and 10bar, however for peak performance it’s recommended water pressure is 3 bar.
For enhanced sanitary purposes, a hygiene flush can be set on or off to activate after 24h of non-use. A flow will run for 10 seconds after this inactive period to flush out any stagnant water.
The sensor can be programmed to detect either a static or a moving object. This allows for specific differences in washroom locations for things like reflections from washbasins.
The tap will show information such as status of the hygiene flushing and last flush-process in hours. Idea for facilities managers to monitor servicing requirements.
To prevent vandalism and misuse, the tap will only run for 60 seconds of continuous activation.
