Washbasin taps for public facilities

Geberit Brenta tap system, wall-mounted

Elegant and touchless wall-mounted taps, clean washbasins, and enough space between them to wash your hands: This image is often precisely what sanitary engineers, architects and operators envisage when planning public or semi-public sanitary facilities projects. The reason why we see so few electronic wall-mounted taps, despite these advantages, is relatively banal: There has been practically no solution so far for planning them safely and installing them without errors.

Modular solution and sophisticated installation

Installation elements for Geberit Piave and Brenta washbasin taps

With its modular tap system, Geberit has developed an impressive solution to remedy the general shortcomings of many touchless washbasin taps and specific problems that arise during the installation of wall-mounted taps. All electronic components, with the exception of the IR sensor, are thus well protected from moisture in a separate function box. It is built in under the washbasin behind the wall and thus enables completely new possibilities for tap design.

High loads

Bathrooms in public facilities with Geberit Brenta wall-mounted taps

Electronic washbasin taps are primarily used in sanitary facilities in public and semi-public buildings such as airports, shopping centres, schools or restaurants. These taps have to be reliable in highly frequented places in particular and must be able to withstand a lot, including rough use. Selecting the right solution is therefore particularly important for reliable function.

Thermostatic mixer for the Geberit tap system

Thermostatic mixer for added safety and convenience

The thermostatic mixer reliably protects against scald injuries and precisely regulates the water temperature. As with all the other technical components (except for the infrared sensor), it is either located in a separate function box behind the wall under the washbasin or is fixed to the wall in the case of solid construction solutions. Professional technicians are able to access it easily whenever they need to, removing the need to schedule any time-consuming work involved in adjusting temperatures or performing thermal disinfection. The new function is available with a connection to the power supply system or with battery operation. This makes it possible to equip any type of Piave and Brenta washbasin tap with a thermostatic mixer. Whether you choose a wall-mounted or deck-mounted tap or an exposed or concealed solution, the new thermostatic mixer is guaranteed to add real value to your fittings.

Wide range covering virtually every area of application

The Geberit tap system is available for mains or battery operation as well as for self-sustaining power supply via a generator unit.

Furthermore, the models can be equipped with or without a mixer. Their bright chrome-plated surfaces and compact design make the washbasin taps easy to clean and maintain as well as attractive to look at. Separate system solutions are available for special applications such as decentralised storage water heaters.

Our tap system and its Duofix element have been adapted to fit the specific requirements of ablution areas. Ablution areas are meant for ceremonial washing and are usually found in mosques, in prayers rooms in shopping centers and also in private housing.

The tap system for ablution areas offers many advantages, such as the splash resistant cover plate and the robust tap connection. The elegant design of our taps combined with the tileable coverplate offers a great freedom of design.

Timeless, elegant design

The Geberit washbasin tap models, Piave and Brenta, designed by London-based design studio, Christoph Behling Design, feature an incredibly slim, timeless and elegant form. Both versions are available as wall-mounted or deck-mounted taps and can be combined with practically any washbasin design. The wall-mounted taps are supplied in lengths of 170 mm and 220 mm in order to accommodate the multitude of possible combinations.

The beautiful tap housings are made of chrome-plated brass. What’s special about it: The water is guided through a reinforced plastic hose that extends from the functional unit in the function box to the tap aerator on the tap outlet. This ensures that the quality of the potable water is not impaired at any point in the tap system.
