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
