Bradley Corporation introduces the WashBar which helps promote better hygiene and houses soap, water and dryer in one intuitive and attractive unit.
A major theme across workplace design articles is the importance of health and wellness in the work environment. Little discussed, but of prime importance is how the washrooms in workplaces are designed and provisioned. Underlying this issue is the importance of health considerations when planning for these critical spaces. Bradley Corporation, a major manufacturer of fixtures has introduced the WashBar, that helps promote better hygiene. Current events tell us that that handwashing is one of the most important elements in preventing the spread of viruses.
From the inventor of all-in-one sink systems comes the WashBar. Providing a completely touchless handwashing experience, the WashBar houses soap, water and dryer in one intuitive and attractive unit. Thoughtfully designed to streamline the handwashing process, this product transforms the washroom to a modern wash space free of clutter. This is the apex of commercial design brought to life. Additional options include it with an undermount basin and the WashBar Duo. The Washbar with undermount basin allows you to pair it with a Terreon solid surface or Evero natural quartz cast- formed undermount basin and the deck or countertop of your choice. The WashBar Duo offers touch-free soap and water in one convenient fixture. This is available Bradley’s Verge LVA basin in Evero Natural Quartz or Bradley’s OmniDeck 3010 in Terreon Solid Surface, or as a standalone unit.
