Franke's new electronic 4-in-1 tap offers instant 100 degree C boiling and cold filtered water
Franke has launched the Minerva 4-in-1 Electronic tap, the company's first digitally controlled tap with simple push-button functionality, offering enhanced convenience and user-friendliness with pre-set 30 and 60 second programmes that dispense two litres of water, ideal for filling pans, teapots, cafetieres and jugs with instant filtered boiling or filtered cold water.
Designed to offer fast and intuitive access to the four water options, a separate electronic dial dispenses the instant filtered 100?C filtered boiling and filtered cold water, while standard mains hot and cold are operated by a single lever.
Pressing in the electronic dial wakes the tap from its safety standby mode when the dial glows white. For 100 degree C boiling water, select the red light and pressing the dial in twice will automatically dispense 60 seconds worth of water, enough to fill a pan. Select blue for cold filtered water and a double press of the dial will dispense water for 30 seconds. The flow of water in each case can also be controlled manually by turning and holding the dial to give more or less water than the pre-set options. The user can select which mode best suits the task in hand.
Available in chrome finish, the tap is suitable for low pressure systems and has a slim five litre water tank that fits neatly behind the plinth saving valuable space. The Minerva Electronic can be fitted in as little as 20 minutes with Franke's new MBox system, which integrates five single parts into one compact box, making installation straightforward and fast.
Retailers will benefit from an extensive POS package including displays and merchandise.
