- Sensor Faucet
It is a newly invented high-tech product, widely used in hotels, guesthouses, office buildings and other high-end places; without touching the faucet, it can effectively avoid bacterial cross-infection, the machine is controlled by a microcomputer, and the optimal sensing distance is determined according to the shape of the basin, without manual adjustment , easy to clean, beautiful in appearance, and firm in structure; but it cannot be used in case of power failure or unstable voltage.
- Wrench Faucet
It is a quick-opening type, with fast water discharge and fast customs duties. The wrench handle generally needs to be rotated 90 degrees; this type of faucet uses the currently popular ceramic valve core as the seal, and its advantages are flexible switching, easy temperature adjustment, and long service life.
- Lift-up Faucet
The lifting type is a compression valve core. The height of the screw is adjusted by rotating the handle, thereby adjusting the cross section of the water flow, adjusting the water volume, and adjusting the water intake and water intake ratio by the displacement of the upper and lower ceramic plates. Thereby the control realizes single-handle control of hot and cold water.
