Sloan Announces BASYS® Guided Handwashing Faucet for Improved Hygiene and Water Conservation

Franklin Park, IL —

August 11, 2020

Sloan, the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems, has announced their BASYS® Guided Handwashing Faucet, designed and engineered to make proper handwashing a seamless and intuitive process.  

Equipped with an LCD display guide, the sensor-activated faucet provides self-guided instruction for users to follow a five-step handwashing process in compliance with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) to improve hand hygiene. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the fact that clean hands can save lives and reduce the spread of germs,” said Graham Allen, Sloan co-president and CEO. “Our BASYS Guided Handwashing Faucet promotes proper handwashing practices to protect both yourself and others from getting sick.” 

Sloan’s guided handwashing faucet walks the user through the following five self-guided instructions to ensure a CDC-compliant handwash: 

1.    Wet – Wet your hands with clean running water
2.    Lather – Lather your hands together with soap
3.    Scrub – Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds (LCD display provides a timed countdown)
4.    Rinse – Rinse your hands well under clean, running water
5.    Dry – Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them

Furthermore, these BASYS Faucets embed sensor technology right where the water exits to initiate the flow of water on-demand, creating water-saving benefits and optimal hygiene for users. 

With multiple heights to fit any application, BASYS offers a modular platform of body types, features, and components to meet the needs of any handwashing environment.  
Also, all existing BASYS Faucets can be retrofitted with interchangeable BASYS Handwashing Crowns to fit the unique needs of a particular installation and provide enhanced hygiene measures. This makes the BASYS Guided Handwashing Faucet an ideal specification across diverse areas where handwashing compliance is a concern.
