Time for touchless announces Geberit's regional MD
Social distancing isn't just impacting on public spaces. Suppliers are reporting an upswing in upgrades to touchless technology in public and semi-public bathrooms, according to Geberit.
Malls in Dubai recently welcomed back under-12s and over-60s, who had previously been restricted from entering for their own safety. Schools in the UAE are yet to re-open, with parents awaiting official announcements for next term.
It's these spaces that are driving renovation inquiries, says Gabriel Nassar, MD of Geberit's Gulf office.
The bathroom products company, which has a showroom in Dubai Design District, can change regular operated taps and flush actuators to touchless options.
Nassar added: “It is now the time for touchless. As the world moves towards the new normal, people all over the world are adapting to new habits based on social distancing. This is also true of behaviours in public places, and specifically within public bathrooms."
Geberit's range includes stainless steel, chrome and plastic options
