Scald Protection in the Commercial Restroom: CEU
Shockingly, thirty four percent of admissions to burn centers are due to scalds. Protecting restroom users from scalding is critical in commercial applications. Though thermostatic mixing valves (TMVs) are a common way to regulate water temperature, they can add unnecessary time and costs to your project. Historically, these valves were separate from the faucet, representing a separate component to be specified, installed and maintained. This course will explore how to prevent scalding with commercial faucets and what it means to be ASSE1070 certified.
- Define scalding and how it can be prevented
- Identify ASSE1070 standards
- Understand how an integrated thermostatic hot water temperature limiter can improve commercial restroom faucet operation and reduce installation and lifecycle costs.
- Identify integrated faucets on the market with ASSE1070 standards
