Basin Taps


UK: Basin Taps: Basin Tap Manufacturers & Suppliers




Two main types of basin taps are available: separate hot and cold taps, and mixer taps. Mixer basin taps may have separate handles for hot and cold water, or may more usually have a single handle which can alter both the temperature and the rate of flow of water. Basin taps may be of traditional or contemporary design; basin taps are most commonly supplied with chrome finish, with gold, black, and white finishes being available. Electronic basin taps have no handles. They may be touchless, using infra-red light, or may need only one touch to start the flow of water to the basin tap. Leading basin tap suppliers are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
