Service Faucets bring a unique set of demands and requirements that are not common for the regular bathroom or kitchen faucet. For customers who are unfamiliar with this category of faucets, this equipment is used primarily in an industrial or commercial situation including hospitals, factories, restaurants, bars or faucets in public buildings or schools.
Environment. Every type of environment needs a different type of faucet. For example, the needs of a commercial kitchen will be significantly different to that of a hospital. A kitchen faucet will see the regular use in a manner that may be brusque or rough, while the hospital is more likely to require a faucet that helps promote hygiene.
Type. Pre-rinse faucets are used by kitchen staff to clean off chunks of food before a final clean is done. They use spray heads operating at a high pressure to accomplish this. Utility sprays are similar to pre-rinse faucets but are free from the cumbersome spring and riser assembly. A commercial sink faucet is normally found in commercial catering businesses. It can be attached to the wall or the backsplash and is fully adjustable. Another type of faucet found mainly in bars is the glass filler. The valve here does not allow adjustable pressure. This is to prevent intermediate flows that can ruin alcoholic drinks.
Business need. Depending on the type of business you operate your need will vary. Suppliers can provide faucets especially for cleaning services. These are known as mop sink faucets and feature bucket hooks to aid filling. Hospitals are likely to favor foot pedal valves. As these are hands free there is a reduction in the transfer of bacteria that can be spread by hand-to-hand contact.
Material. Stainless steel is a popular material due to its durability. The industrial faucet must content with a significant amount of wear and tear, much more than its domestic counterpart. Brass is also used in the manufacture of high quality long lasting faucets. Both materials are easy to clean and will resist rust and corrosion if cared for in a proper manner.
