hands-free industrial hand wash basin
The hands-free industrial hand wash basin which can be either knee operated (as in the picture) or foot operated. The whole system can be customized to suit your factory needs.

The food industry has special requirements regarding hygiene.  Everything has to be hands-free as much as possible.  This includes the taps (water supply), soap dispensers, hand towels etc.  So hands-free is all about hygiene. All our hands-free industrial equipment is made from Grade 304 stainless steel which makes it easy to clean and durable.

Grade 316 Stainless steel is a bit of overkill for the food industry, so we use mostly Grade 304.  Never us Grade 430 stainless steel since it will rust within five years of industrial use (I actually think it will rust within two years).

The most suitable and practical hands-free wash hand basin for the food industry is the knee operated slab sink. The whole system is made from Grade 304 stainless steel so you do not have to worry about hygiene.  The basin depth might be a little shallow but there is a reason for it, it is easy to clean and inspect.  Remember, this hand-free wash basin is not made for washing pots and pans, it is specifically used for washing hands and easy to clean, so the focus is hygiene. There are two basic models available, a 1800 mmm version with three spouts and knee operated valves and a 2400 mm version with four spouts and four knee operated valves. The stainless steel splashback is usually 300 mm high, but can me made higher or lower or even left our completely, however, this is not recommended.  Stainless steel is easy to clean and is more hygienic than painted walls.

hands-free on-demand soap dispener
On demand hands-free operated soap dispenser. Ideal to attach against the stainless steel splashback of the knee operated slab sink.
hands-free warm air dryer
Hands-free wash hand basins for the food industry
The stainless steel splashback can be used to hold hands-free soap dispensers as well as hands-free towel dispensers.  This makes the whole system compact and opens up space in the rest of the washroom.

The hands-free slab sink can also be made shorter to accommodate either two or one knee operated valve. This is handy especially for smaller industrial setups but where hygiene is still extremely important.
