Our range of self-closing non-concussive taps is made to our own design dating back to the 1920's. The design is so durable that we have seen little point in trying to improve a sound design. The product range, encompassing all forms of tap from pillar valves through to stopcocks, is perfectly suited to applications where water saving coupled with ease of operation is required. Also the foot operated or knee operated stopcocks are essential where the user should not contaminate their hands after washing. Our surface mounted foot operated valve, 2780, has been specified and fitted to many abattoirs around the country.
Our range of in-house manufactured ceramic disk headworks, when fitted to our taps and mixers, make the fittings ideally suited for persons with limited ability to operate the valve. Traditionally these are long 6" lever operated, such as used by surgeons in operating theatres to "scrub up". We supply the fittings with a shortened 3" lever that allows operation without need for gripping. Our hospital range of fittings are both durable and stylish withstanding the rigours of very high usage without deterioration.
Our range of self-closing taps and quarter turn ceramic disk taps are most suitable for use by disabled or elderly persons.
By choosing Barber Wilsons taps you are assured of consistent fuction backed by our 95 years experience in the field. Our ability to supply spares even for product lines that were either made for bespoke applications or superceeded by newer designs is part of our strength. Your investment in our fittings will be sound.
