Common Features of the TOUCHLESS FAUCET

.

TOUCHLESS FAUCET are a hygienic product that can be used with peace of mind by allowing people to wash their hands without coming into contact with surfaces in restroom spaces, thanks to their touchless features. TOTO has improved the design quality of the faucet itself by installing compact sensor by the spout to realize high-performance and comfortable usability. A feature of TOTO faucets is their ability help save water resources, such as by preventing faucets from being left to run.

 

Common Design Concept (except GM series)

Based on geometric shapes such as circles, ellipses and squares, we pursue forms that are simple yet luxurious with subtle angles and curved surfaces.

 

■ TOUCHLESS FAUCET TLE24 series
