Düsseldorf, 13th October 2021
– On October 15, Global Handwashing Day reminds us of the importance of handwashing, which is relevant not only for public places, but also in our private bathrooms. When it comes to hand hygiene, the first thing that comes to mind is most likely a faucet, but one of the most sensitive touch-points in the bathroom is the toilet – or rather its flush plate. This is where GROHE, one of the leading global brands for complete bathroom solutions and kitchen fittings, comes in, offering a whole portfolio of touchless operated products to create a more comfortable and more hygienic bathroom experience – from faucets to flush plates for WCs and urinals. “More than ever, we are looking for intelligent solutions that add a real value to our daily lives,” says Jonas Brennwald, Leader LIXIL EMENA. “At GROHE, we consider the whole customer journey when developing our human-centric products. That means, to optimize handwashing, one of the first steps is to define the most sensitive contact points in the bathroom and to open up innovative ways for improving these. With our touchless portfolio we take handwashing efficiency and comfort to a whole new level.”

GROHE Tectron Bau E: Enhanced comfort for the daily bathroom routine         

A new helpmate joins the GROHE touchless family: the Tectron Bau E flush plate. The WC flushes automatically when the infrared electronics are activated. This makes the interaction with the new
Tectron Bau E extremely comfortable and hygienic as no contact with the plate is required. The infrared technology guarantees that the WC is free from germs and bacteria transmissions so that it is always ready for the next user. This special feature also makes it suitable for use in a guest toilet or in semi-public bathrooms like hotels. The flush plate is easy to clean as the touchless operation prevents greasy fingerprints – perfect for households with children. Another helpful option, especially when going on holiday, is the automatic flush to avoid water stagnation after a set period of inactivity. Thanks to GROHE EcoJoy technology effortless, resource-saving water consumption when flushing is ensured by using a dual flush, depending on dwell time. Tectron Bau E is available in two different color variants (chrome and white) and matches the GROHE Bau Ceramic line perfectly for a coordinated design.
