Geberit, a maker of global bathroom systems and technologies, has enhanced its line of sleek Type 10 remote buttons with a touchless Infrared (IR) button to provide touchless activation and easy hand wave dual flush operation. The company is introducing them across the United States and Canada. Popular in residential settings, hotels, modular construction and long-term care facilities, the wall-mounted systems are sustainable, accessible and keep bathrooms clean.
With the growth of the over-50 population in the United States, architects and designers are incorporating more convenience features that meet the need for accessible or universal design. With Geberit’s touch-free activation, the Type 10 IR wireless button also helps prevent the spread of germs, useful in private or semi-public bathrooms.
The Type 10 IR flush button offers property owners a built-in wireless Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communication for water management and maintenance. Combined with a mobile phone and the free Geberit Connect app, simple configuration, maintenance and reporting features are quickly available. The Geberit Connect app saves installers and facility managers time with storage of settings and profiles, as well as provide low battery warning and other error messages. It also extends product life with remote firmware updates.
Geberit Connect is also part of a water management plan by delivering exports of water usage for tracking or savings calculations.
