3 reasons to choose Oras hospital faucets for healthcare facilities

1. Lower risk of contamination – product features that enhance hygiene

With touchless technology, thermal disinfection functionality, laminar flow capabilities, easy-to-clean surfaces, and fully sealed connections, our faucets for hospitals and clinics reduce microbes and aerosols.

Touchless technology

Touchless faucets remove the risk of hand-to-hand transmission of bacteria and require less cleaning than conventional faucets. 

  • Reduce up to 80% of transmitted bacteria*
  • Possibility to schedule hygienic flushing flexibly with an app can prevent formation of dangerous bacteria such as legionella.

Automatic flush scheduling

Oras touchless faucets with Bluetooth can be controlled via Oras App, which enables to set-up automatic flushing at set intervals:

  • Create a weekly or daily automatic flushing schedule - no need for manual rinsing of the pipes
  • No more stagnant water
  • Reduce the bacteria to grow in the pipes

Thermal disinfection

Some of our faucet models (such as Oras Clinica thermostats) feature thermal disinfection flush:

  • Enables hot water at maximum temperature to run through the piping

  • Can be easily activated with a provided tool

  • Significantly reduces the risk for legionella and other microbes to spread

2. Improved safety

In nursing homes and nurseries, scalding incidents can be a common occurrence. Our intelligent thermostats are designed to prevent any such burn injuries thanks to the following features:

  • If cold water stops flowing for any reason, our thermostats will block hot water output
  • A built-in hot water stop prevents the temperature from being set above 38°C
  • To actively change the maximum temperature, you will need to press a special button
  • THERMOCOOL function the faucet’s surface never gets too hot
