The pedal-driven multi-hand wash system has been developed by installing 500 litres PVC tank which enables 1200 – 1500 washes with MS Square Tubes and MS Angles for supplying water through taps and other sanitary fittings, MS Sheets, fasteners, springs, gas cuttings and fabrication are few parts to make it a perfectly operated model.
The whole assembly has been put into an area of 6*6 ft. The number of washes per unit can be customised as per the crowd flow of the place where it has been installed.
The model’s branding specification involves a total area of 48 square feet mentioning four-wall branding covering the water tank, 4ft*3ft each wall made of flex and MS structure.
