Medical Range

With the Covid-19 pandemic, everybody has become more conscientious about hygiene and germs. Cobra and Vaal both offer a fantastic medical range that is often used in hospitals and medical labs. The great thing about this range is that it can also be installed in your kitchen, industrial installations and even food processing plants where hygiene is important.

Cobra Taps

All Cobra taps are chrome plated making them ideal for sterile environments. The Cobra range of taps is also listed with JASWIC (the Joint Acceptance Scheme for Water Services Installation Components), and is also SABS compliant. Cobra has a great range of medical mixers with many fantastic features and benefits such as:

  • Clockwise and anti-clockwise closing mechanism – a ceramic disk helps to facilitate the opening and closing of taps and side valves with a ¼ turn action.
  • Aerated flow restrictors – taps and mixers typically come with a 5 litre/minute flow restrictor. This is fantastic for saving water and supporting green building requirements.
  • Dry outlet design – this design ensures that all water remaining in the tap chamber runs from the outlet, thus eliminating the growth of bacteria.
  • Operating handle – angled away from the spout, the long handle ensures accessibility. This is a great benefit for users with limited mobility since the handle can be operated with both elbow and forearm. The handle has no sharp edges, thus removing any threat of injury.

Medical basins, or medical sinks, are made from ceramic fireclay. This makes them the most hygienic sinks on the market, being completely non-porous and very easy to clean. The Hygia medical basin is ideal for doctors’ rooms, surgical theatres, clinics, and hospitals. It is also used in many food processing plants where hygiene is important.

Vaal Sola Basin Medical

The Sola medical hand washbasins are suitable for doctors’ rooms, clinics, laboratories, and some parts of hospitals. They are not suitable for extreme hygiene installations such as surgeon scrub units or operating theatres. The reason for this is that the Sola medical basins do not have a splash-back behind the bowl. The water will splashback from the wall onto your hands during washing, and the walls cannot be sterilised like ceramic or stainless steel.

There are a variety of taps and basins that help to maintain a high level of hygiene. If you would like any more information on these featured products, please feel to contact us and we will gladly assist you.
