In 1926, the birth of the Circular Wash Fountain and Semi-Circular Hand Wash fountain designs were developed for manufacturing facilities to help accommodate the multitude of shift employees to be able to wash their hands before, during and after shift changes in a timely fashion.
The Circular Wash Fountain design has a 360-degree spray head to accommodate up to 8 users at a time, while the Semi-Circular Wash Fountain design offers a 180-degree spray head and can serve up to 4 users at a time, an improvement from the single station hand wash sinks that serve one person at a time. The wash fountain spray head technology is offered for foot control or infrared eye. The foot control bar option activates the spray head by stepping on the bar and holding it down during until the hands have been fully washed. The automatic activation option is controlled by an Infrared Light when hands are placed in front of light, and the spray head will remain activated until the hands are removed from the infrared eye deactivating the spray head. The automatic infrared activation control requires electricity whereas the foot bar activation does not.
Hand Wash Fountains in both Semi Circular and Circular configurations can be procured in several bowl materials. Choose from Stainless Steel, Terreon, Terrazzo or Bradstone Bowl options. All materials are manufactured to hold up in the toughest work environments.
Wash fountains come in Semi Circle design in a 36-inch wide or 54-inch-wide or full Circle design in a 36-inch diameter or 54-inch diameter, designed to accommodate small areas or larger areas, depending on designated washup area space. These wash fountains can accommodate any of the plumbing water sources from offline below or above or centrally rising from above or below.
