Do you want to know the secret behind our Oras touchless faucets – and why they make for an excellent choice? 29.01.2018 — Touchless

Our touchless faucets come in different designs but at the core you will find the same reliable technology which is a result from decades of experience. Did you know that Oras was one of the first faucet manufacturers to introduce touchless faucet technology to the market?  

The faucet reacts to the movement of your hands movement of your hands – and is not dependent of the light in the room. So, if you wake up at night and need to use the toilet you don’t need to turn on the lights. You can still wash your hands and wander back to bed – without being woken up by those blinding lights.

The technology behind this is called a PSD (Position Sensitive Detector) sensor, which allows you to use the faucet at any time of the day, not matter how dirty your hands might be.

Without getting too technical, the sensor sends a signal to the solenoid valve, which opens the faucet and the water starts flowing. And here’s the coolest thing about these faucets: when you are finished washing your hands and move out of the sensor range the water stops flowing. It won’t keep running when you need to run.
