An electronically-controlled washroom system, designed for efficiency and hygiene, has been developed by Armitage Shanks.Sensorflow uses electronic infra red proximity sensors to automatically control the flow of water from taps, as well as the flushing of urinals.The company claims that, because there are no taps or levers to turn, the system is inherently more hygienic than traditional plumbing fittings. It also says the automatic control of water flow means a reduction in water and energy consumption.Sensorflow is designed for use in food firms, schools, factories, offices, hotels, factory washrooms and prisons. It is managed from a central control box which can serve up to 10 separate outlets. It can be extended by the addition of more control boxes.Armitage Shanks, Tel: 0534 490253. CONSTRUCTION NEWS
