Foot valves and knee valves
Foot valves and knee valves are both used in commercial and industrial applications where hands free operation is essential, either for hygiene or safety. Both foot valves and knee valves can be used in combination with various stainless steel hand wash basins and wash troughs. The foot and knee valves supply only cold water or pre-mixed water. Pre-mixed water can be done through a thermostatic mixing valve such as the Meynell 15/3 (One or two adjacent basins) or Rada 222 DK (3-5 adjacent basins). Both thermostatic mixers will prevent hot water scalding thus protecting the user.
