Worry-free and Contactless: State-of-the-art Technology and Design for Hygienic Cleanliness

The New Self-closing and Electronic Faucets by hansgrohe
Schiltach, May 2021. Whether its door handles, cell phones or shopping carts: our hands are constantly in contact with germs in everyday life and are therefore predestined carriers of pathogens. Regular and careful hand washing reduces the number of germs and can thus reduce the risk of infection. The contactless operability of fittings areas can contribute to higher hygiene standards in public areas, but also in private spaces such as the guest toilet, contactless faucets are becoming increasingly popular. With Vernis Blend, hansgrohe presents a new electronic faucet in a modern design language with long-lasting product quality and efficient water use. Additionally, hansgrohe introduces Talis E, a self-closing faucet that impresses in terms of design, sustainability and robustness. Thanks to its automatic stop of the water flow, there is no need to touch the surface after washing your hands. Both faucet lines feature a high level of safety and thus, secure water access. Even with high usage frequencies in public spaces, the water management of the new generation of self-closing and electronic faucets from hansgrohe is particularly efficient and sustainable thanks to a reduced flow rate and automatic limit switching. The jet duration and temperature can each be individually adjusted to the requirements of the room. With these new products, the premium brand from the Black Forest offers high-quality and timeless design solutions for thorough and non-contact hand hygiene in (semi-)public and private areas.

Vernis Blend - Automatically Efficient and Hygienic

​​​​​​​On and off without touching: Thanks to its integrated sensor technology, the new hansgrohe Vernis Blend electronic faucet guarantees touch-free and convenient operation, especially where the highest demands are placed on hygiene, comfort and water consumption. With the integrated dirt filter and the built-in backflow protection, the electronic faucet is a safe option with low failure frequency. Thanks to the high-quality metal surface and the design with reduced and smooth edges, Vernis Blend also fits harmoniously into private washrooms such as the guest WC. Thanks to flexible settings for water jet and the temperature, as well as the option of installation in battery or mains operation, Vernis Blend is entirely geared to the needs of the user. The automated faucet features the thermal disinfection function, which demonstrably destroys impurities such as viruses or bacteria in the pipes through temperatures of up to 70°C. This also makes the faucet suitable for use as a source of drinking water in public washing areas.

Talis E - for Sanitary Areas with High Frequency Use

Whether in schools, leisure facilities, cultural institutions or even public toilets: The new Talis E self-closing faucet finds the best compromise between hygienic standards and energy efficiency at every location thanks to its fast and infinitely variable adjustment of the self-closing time (3 - 20 seconds). The faucet solution with automatic water stoppage is ideal for installation in highly frequented washing areas with increased water demand thanks to its high-quality workmanship and reliable product quality, as well as low maintenance frequency. Service costs and disruptive factors in operation and water supply are thus minimized. The self-closing faucet is available as a free-standing valve with cold water or with temperature control that can be individually adjusted by a handle. The new product line also features the option of thermal cleaning, which can be easily activated by a separate magnetic tool.

​​​​​​The new self-closing and electronic faucets, hansgrohe Talis E and Vernis Blend, prevent water waste and poor hygiene in public areas. The new product solutions from hansgrohe allow efficient use of resources and are particularly suitable for installation in wash areas with frequently changing groups of users. No more getting your fingers dirty during hand washing: Contactless operation can reduce the spread of viruses and bacteria on surfaces and supports applicable hygiene regulations.
