Health And Hygiene-Conscious Bathroom Brand Hits NZ Commercial Market

Waterware, a market leading specialist importer of plumbing, central heating & cooling and bathroomware products, is pleased to announce the arrival of GENTEC. As a next generation plumbing technology, the GENTEC commercial bathroomware range offers multi-purpose, innovative and hygienic plumbing fixtures.

In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, Waterware identified a need for high-performing, premium products that could meet a variety of health and safety challenges in the commercial, health, scientific, hospitality, and industrial sectors.

With a forward-thinking approach combined with innovative technology and environmental sustainabiity, GENTEC provided the answer: commercial plumbing fixtures manufactured using high-grade stainless steel that help maintain a healthy and hygienic working environment.

Waterware spokesperson Rob Scholtens says that researchers have long been investigating how plumbing fixtures like basins and taps could spread infectious bacteria and superbugs, especially in hospital environments.

“GENTEC identified several risk infection factors with many standard plumbing setups, then set about providing products to combat them in a variety of environments. From biofilm buildup to bacteria around the basin and floor drains that allow bacteria to enter habitable spaces, there is lots of room for improvement.”

“We’re proud to offer GENTEC products that combat these problems, like basins with rear-offset waste, basin grate seals, smart technology, and anti-microbial materials. Ensuring all workers wash their hands properly will never be possible, but hygienic plumbing fixtures can certainly diminish the risk of infection and workspace contamination.”

The GENTEC range is available exclusively from Waterware, and includes an extensive range of products for high-risk industries and workplaces; such as health and aged care facilities, clinics, research facilities, public facilities, food preparation and dining establishments, manufacturing plants, and more.

Phone 0800 WATERWARE to speak with Rob Scholtens, Commercial Space & Healthcare Manager to find out more about the GENTEC range and how their products can be suitable for your next commercial project.
