Touchfree extends Dornbracht’s product portfolio for all basin fittings (wall-mounted and free-standing models) by adding a new contact-free control. Based on active motion detection, Dornbracht Touchfree operates without a visible sensor on the fitting, and can be combined with all the Dornbracht series. Developed specifically for the semi-public sector, this contact-free and automatic control is not only ultra-convenient, it also enables architects, interior designers and planners to have maximum creative freedom in their schemes.

Touchfree applications will become increasingly relevant anywhere that a great number of visitors are expected – this includes semi-public washroom facilities in hotels, offices and restaurants, as well as airport lounges. Whereas previously, the basin fittings in these sites have mostly made use of infrared sensors, Dornbracht’s Touchfree will bring the advantages of high-frequency technology to these areas for the first time. The added value: Touchfree has a sensor that is entirely invisible on the fitting and can – just like a motion detector – be attuned to different ranges. The reliable and convenient Touchfree sensor automatically switches the water on, as well as off again, as soon as the individual leaves the washplace.

Combinations can be varied for maximum creative freedom
The technology behind Dornbracht Touchfree is the Touchfree eSet, which can be combined with every Dornbracht design series. The eSet is available as a surface-mounted solution for basins with a free-standing spout and as a concealed solution for wall-mounted spouts – and either with or without temperature adjustments in each case. It is easily installed below the basin – where it is invisible to the user. So Dornbracht’s Touchfree is not only a hygienic and durable solution for high-quality, semi-public washroom facilities, it also gives architects, interior designers and planners the greatest possible freedom for their design schemes.

Individually adaptable
Dornbracht Touchfree can be adjusted in many ways, just like its detection sensor technology. The Touchfree sensor learns automatically from the first time it is put into operation, but its sensitivity can be adjusted at any time to meet individual requirements. Thermal disinfection and water temperature levels can also be set according to need. Dornbracht Touchfree also has an adjustable run-on time, making it particularly resource-efficient. This effect is even more pronounced when used in combination with water-saving fittings (such as the Dornbracht CL.1).
