Infrared shower panels prove popular

Amid rising energy costs and funding cuts, reducing water wastage in healthcare facilities is becoming increasingly important.

“Fortunately,” says Bristan, “manufacturers are continually working to develop products which maintain high levels of performance and safety, while improving water efficiency.” The company added: “Water wastage is both an environmental and a financial issue. In 2007-2008 the NHS consumed an estimated 38.8 million cubic metres of water the NHS at a cost of about £145 m.  However, according to HTM 07-04: Water Management and Water Efficiency, financial savings of up to 20 per cent could be achieved by water-saving measures. Infrared options are not only water-efficient, but also reduce crosscontamination risk.” 

Bristan says infrared shower panels are proving particularly popular. It said: “Recent models with control key-fobs as standard allow facilities managers to adjust parameters such as run-time, dutyflush, and sensor activation distance. A shower’s run-time can be set to exact requirements, eliminating water wastage, and the risk of a shower not being completely shut off, which could result in costly leaks.” 

Using very low voltage electrics, Bristan’s infrared shower panels offer up to 500,000 activations on one set of 1.5V AA batteries.
