Bradley’s Next Generation Washbar® Raises the Bar For Upscale All-In-One Hand Washing

Menomonee Falls, Wis. (May 11, 2020) – Bradley Corp., the 100-year industry leader in designing world-class hand washing solutions, introduces the next generation of its award-winning WashBar® series. This new extension delivers Bradley’s exclusive clean+rinse+dry functionality along with an ultra-modern, edgier profile designed to make a statement in upscale commercial washroom applications.

The next generation WashBar features a thin, L-shaped design that gives the feel the all-in-one fixture is floating above the sink for an innovative and sleek aesthetic. And with only one connection point to the sink, the unique design provides more open space for easier cleaning while providing a striking design element.

Designed in collaboration with award-winning international design firm platinumdesign, this stunning new model is ideal for more refined applications that call for an iconic-looking high-class design including Class A offices, hospitality, upscale restaurants, bars, retail establishments and more.

“Now, more than ever before, touch-free hand washing technologies like the WashBar are at the forefront of limiting the spread of germs in public restrooms,” says Will Haas, senior product manager, Bradley Corp. “In addition to being completely touchless, this next-gen ultra-modern fixture gives the appearance that it is floating above the sink. Its superslim angular shape – complemented by its flat top surface – reflects modern architecture and interior design.”

Hands-free clean+rinse+dry technology

Designed to enhance all the fundamentals of hand washing, the next generation WashBar combines touch-free soap, water and dryer. The durable chrome-plated cast alloy fixture features LED lighting to visually orient the user through the hand washing process with easy-to-identify icons on top of the bar. Using a bowl designed to work with the fixture keeps water in the bowl to avoid splashing outside the basin onto the floor, walls or user, improving washroom cleanliness and safety. The system’s integration of soap, water and dryer into one sleek fixture eliminates deck and washroom clutter. 

Exclusive features 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.

Water is dispensed at 0.5 GPM although it is also available with an ultra-high efficiency flow rate of 0.35 GPM 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 next generation WashBar WB2 pairs with all basins that fit the original WashBar, including the Verge LVQ basin in Evero natural quartz and Omnideck 5010 in Terreon solid surface; it may also be paired with a Terreon solid surface or Evero natural quartz undermount basin with the deck or countertop of your choice.
