Hot stuff from handy wash unit

HOT water for handwashing without the need for a dedicated hot water supply is provided by Cotswold Autoflos Handwash system.

Using a similar operating principle to an electric shower unit, the Handwash requires just an electric power supply, a cold water feed and waste outlet.

A 3kW element instantly heats the water as it passes through the unit.

The Worcs-based firm says the unit is particularly suited to fitting in outlying farm buildings, where the cost of fitting a hot water system may be prohibitive.

Price of the Handwash kit, which is switched on automatically by the operator waving his/her hands in front of a sensor, is £310 (01386-853284).
