Bradley Introduces Verge® with Washbar™ Technology
Exclusive Handwashing System Provides Touchless Clean+Rinse+Dry Feature
Menomonee Falls, WI. (November 10, 2016) – Bradley Corp., the industry leaders in all-in-one hand washing technology, breaks new ground with the introduction of its striking Verge® with all-in-one WashBar™ technology. Inspired by feedback from design professionals around the world, the new system integrates Bradley’s Verge basin in Evero® quartz material along with unique clean+rinse+dry functionality housed in the new WashBar feature. The result is a single cohesive and elegant design that creates an inviting and intuitive space for a complete hand washing experience.
Having soap, water and dryer all within immediate reach, the Verge – along with patented WashBar technology – elevates convenience, comfort and safety in commercial washrooms. Since all hand washing elements are easily accessible in one unit, the user needn’t move from the station in search of soap, towels or a hand dryer. In addition to its user convenience, this uniquely integrated design ensures that water stays in the basin as opposed to dripping on the floor or down the walls.
WashBar provides clean+rinse+dry technology
Designed to enhance all the fundamentals of hand washing, the cutting edge WashBar technology is comprised of a single piece of chrome-plated stainless steel that combines soap, water and dryer. LED lighting on the WashBar helps to visually orient the user through the hand washing process with easy to identify icons on top of the bar. The WashBar’s streamlined design eliminates the cluttered look of three separate components, and complements the Verge’s sleek aesthetic.
Exclusive features of the Verge with WashBar technology include an efficient one-gallon soap container that requires fewer refills. When the low level LED indicator illuminates, the soap container is simply replaced with a new full container. Since there is not a reusable soap tank, no cleaning is required and germ contamination is minimized.
The WashBar’s dryer is engineered to balance air flow and noise providing a better user experience. While its heated air stream dries hands quickly and efficiently, the dryer and bowl have been designed to work together to eliminate the spraying of water that could drip onto the floor or a user. Air speed is adjustable by the owner to manage applications in which a quieter dryer is required.
In addition, water is dispensed at 0.5 GPM although it is also available with an ultra-high efficiency flow rate of 0.35GPM when water conservation is a necessity.
WashBar technology also saves on maintenance costs with fewer soap refills, the elimination of paper towels, less wet floor clean up and less time emptying waste bins. The integrated and sleek designs of both the Verge basin and WashBar simplify cleaning.
Available in single-, 2- or 3-user models, this completely touchless hand washing fixture is ADA compliant; the convenient design makes it easier to clean, rinse and dry than traditional hand washing stations. The system makes an ideal choice for restrooms in a variety of applications: retail, restaurants, airports, entertainment venues, colleges, office buildings, healthcare facilities, financial institutions, hospitality and more.
Durable and sustainable Evero Quartz Material
All Verge basins are made with Bradley’s exclusive Evero Natural Quartz Material, a resilient natural composite material that’s easily molded into seamless shapes.
