There are some things you don't miss because they don't yet exist. But when they do come into being, you don't want to be without them ever again. KWC USO is one of these things: the semi-automatic faucet for use in public facilities is now finding its way, in a streamlined design, into domestic kitchens (and bathrooms). The concept
Minimum-contact sensor technology has so far mainly been used in faucets in the public or semi-public sector and therefore has to be very robust and vandal-proof as well as easy to clean, maintain and operate. This means it has always been rather bulky and cumbersome in its design.
Now KWC USO offers all the same technical and functional advantages – packed into a modern, slimmed-down design which is bound to be a hit in the domestic market, too.
The design KWC USO is a design object with character, yet one which blends in well with other features such as other kitchen fittings, which KWC USO complements perfectly. KWC USO is made entirely of stainless steel, making it stylish and strong at the same time. In an environment where other faucets are chrome-finished, the polished stainless steel version of the KWC USO is an ideal match. In style, it is distinctive, slim, clear-cut, contemporary and yet timeless.
The technology KWC USO is based on innovative sensor technology. This reacts to a quick touch of the spout and displays the water temperature using colour coding (LUMINAQUA LED technology): tap once for cold (blue), twice for warm (orange), three times for hot (red). After 10 seconds, the water turns off automatically. If you want to stop the water beforehand, just touch the spout once.
Cleaning mode: If you touch the spout for 5 seconds, the cleaning mode comes on and is automatically activated for 45 seconds - with no need for any water to be flowing. To stop the cleaning early, just touch for 5 seconds again.
All the outstanding details: - Minimum-contact sensor technology - Available in stainless steel and polished stainless steel (looks like chrome) - Style and technology, elegance and electronics all combined - "TipControl": three stages, three colours: tap once for cold (blue), twice for warm (orange), three times for hot (red) - Economical LUMINAQUA LED technology (mains- or battery-powered) - The water temperature is displayed visually on the base and on the spout: the coloured LED signals here shine with a subtle glow through the transparent sections - Cleaning mode is activated if you touch for 5 seconds and then switches off automatically - Water flows for 10 seconds (factory setting) - Water-saving technology: the flow of water remains constant at just 5 l/min at 3 bar. After 10 seconds, the water turns off automatically
Areas of use KWC USO is designed to be used anywhere where hygiene, user-friendly and intuitive operation, robustness and safety are high priorities, all along with a stylish appearance. - Hospitals, schools, offices, cinemas, theatres, public/semi-public buildings - Hotels, restaurants, canteens - Domestic uses: kitchens, utility rooms, guest bathrooms
