Dornbracht has launched its new Touchfree Infrared product range, designed by Sieger Design, that the company says is in response to the recent surge in hygiene awareness, with all new products set to be available in January.
The new range includes six designer fittings with numerous glossy and matt finish options. IMO and Meta are available in different versions with a twist knob for direct temperature regulation and undercounter control unit for indirect temperature regulation. Dornbracht offers under-sink temperature regulation for the MEM, Tara and Vaia design series. In addition to shiny chrome and elegant platinum, there are six matt finishes to choose from: Chrome matt, Platinum matt, Brushed Durabrass, Dark Platinum matt, Black matt and White matt.
In terms of functionality, the fittings are based on proven infrared technology and include sensor technology that is integrated into the design. Installation and set-up are based on the simple 'plug & play' principle. Maintenance and adjusting the settings are also said to require little effort and include the option to thermally disinfect all components. Power is supplied by standard batteries or a power supply unit, and individual settings make it possible to optimise water and energy consumption. An automatic switch-off function with presettable time stops the water when leaving the sensor area and supports the responsible use of water resources.
"The Dornbracht design principles are reliable factors for planners and designers to emphasise and reinforce individual architectural concepts. They stand for a timeless quality and a longevity that transcends epochs, styles and trends. All in the spirit of our claim 'Leading Designs for Architecture'," said Stefan Gesing, CEO of Dornbracht AG.
