Thanks to mirror cartridges it is possible to open kitchen faucets avoiding the inconvenience of the handle moving towards the wall
If we open the faucet of our sink and we want cold water, we move the handle to the right, and if we want hot water, to the left. Well, now let’s imagine that we have a kitchen faucet with the handle on the right side and extrapolate the position of the hot and cold water. What would happen when you move the handle to the hot water position? Sure enough, we would hit the wall. So we prevent this from happening with mirror cartridges specially designed for kitchen applications.
Mirror version for kitchen applications
Cold mirror version has been specifically designed for kitchen applications precisely to avoid the inconvenience of the handle moving towards the wall. Moreover, cold mirror cartridges allow the manufacturer to keep the same machining and comply with standard EN200 & EN817 regulations without any change in the faucet.
So, what are the inconvenience to the manufacturer of having a kitchen faucet without a mirror cartridge? Firstly, to open the faucet in cold position, the manufacturer needs to change the machining. Also, may experience difficulties when machining the drills of cold water inlet and mixed water exit due to possible interferences. On the other hand, it will be necessary to have two types of machining for different body versions, as well as could be difficulties mounting flexible hoses due to proximity of inlets.
Cold start for energy saving
At SEDAL we take care of environment, that’s why we have developed mirror cartridges with cold start for saving energy. The lever of the faucet is in cold position by default and operated with the handle in the central position, thus avoiding unnecessary use of the heater when daily actions such as brushing teeth or hands are made. Thanks to this small gesture, it is possible to avoid the consumption of energy or the emission of polluting gases and saving up to 10% from the household energy consumption related to plumbing products.
