Teal units deliver an effective hand wash with a minimum of water

Efficient water use is a focus for Teal

Teal specialises in designing and developing highly portable hot water hand wash units – helping customers around the world by providing effective facilities where mains fresh water and drainage are non-existent.

A main focus for Teal has always been the conservation of precious water – using enough to deliver a high quality hand wash without waste.

This is a crucial benefit of ALL Teal units, particularly in areas such as Southern Africa, the Iberian Peninsula and Australia.

Example: Teal Teal Hygienius

This innovative unit is highly portable, needs no plumbing and requires only a 13 amp power socket for operation. The automatic sensor starts a ten second flow of hot water when hands are placed within range.

This delivers the perfect amount of water for a high quality hand wash – without any of it being wasted.

The facts speak for themselves…
The Hygienius uses only a quarter of the water for a ten second wash when compared to the most efficient alternative method.

Lower energy use

Teal mobile sinks with built in water heaters use less than 20% of the energy needed for any other type of system, with the water being heated to a comfortable temperature of 40-45º C.

No heat is wasted by having to mix hot and cold water – and there is no heat loss from storage tanks, pipework, taps or fittings.
