Hindware’s Contactless Handwashing Systems to Promote Safe Public Hygiene Practices in Unlock Phase


New Delhi, August 18, 2020: Reiterating its commitment towards promoting good health and hygiene in the society, Brilloca, makers of India’s iconic bathware solutions brand, Hindware, has introduced the first-of-its-kind ‘Contactless Handwashing System’, to be installed at public locations, as the country navigates through the Unlock phase.

In keeping with the brand’s legacy of driving innovation as per the needs of the community, the sensor-based handwashing system addresses one of the key priorities of the nation, i.e., creating awareness and building access to safe and hygienic hand-washing facilities at public places.

The contactless systems are being initially installed at eight sites in the National Capital Region, including four in Delhi, two in Gurugram and two in Noida.

Commenting on the occasion, Sandip Somany, Chairman and Managing Director, Brilloca Limited, said, “Hindware has remained committed to promoting health and hygiene in the society and the Contactless Handwashing System is reflective of our efforts in this direction.  As the nation transitions through the Unlock phase, there is a need to stay cautious while we get into our routines. Safety is of prime importance, however, it is not always close at hand when we venture out. With our new initiative, we are aiming to not only bring safe hygiene practices to the masses but also drive a behaviour change which is imperative in the new normal.”

Crafted after a thorough field study at Hindware Design Studio, the contactless hand wash system come fitted with a sensor-operated faucet, basin and foot-operated soap dispenser with a digital sensor, keeping a count of hand-washes at that particular station.

Sanjay Kalra, Chief Executive Officer, Bath Products & Tiles, Brilloca Limited, added, “These are unprecedented times, and it is imperative that the brands, with their expertise and knowledge, bring solutions that contribute towards the larger priority of the nation. While the focus remains on arresting the spread of coronavirus, it is also important to stay vigilant as we step out during the Unlock phase. The Contactless Handwashing Systems are being installed at specific locations where the footfall is expected to be higher. We are starting with the initiative in the National Capital Region and will adopt a phased approach to expand further.”

Driven by innovation at the Hindware Design Studio, it brings together a perfect amalgamation of technology and aesthetics, to create bathroom products that are aligned with the changing requirements of the customers.
