Water is our most important food. It not only quickly quenches our thirst, its main use is for the preparation of food. Kitchen taps are therefore subjected to heavy demands and are used around 70 to 80 times per day on average – for cooking or simply for a nice cup of coffee in between.
There is an almost unlimited choice of kitchen taps to choose from. And even if quite a few offers appear temptingly cheap, the products do not always comply with the high local standards. Untested taps can significantly exceed threshold values for harmful substances such as lead, nickel, cadmium or arsenic. A certified tap provides the consumer with the optimum choice for drawing water.
Kitchen technology specialist Blanco has an extensive product portfolio with taps which are not only a perfect match to the sinks and the kitchen fittings. Blanco also shows its sense of responsibility with regard to safety and hygiene. All water-conducting parts in BLANCO taps exclusively use certified quality materials. Furthermore, the taps first undergo extensive internal test procedures and quality assurance measures. Blanco also voluntarily has the hygiene of its taps tested by the certification body of the German Scientific and Technical Association for Gas and Water e.V. (DVGW), Bonn.
The DVGW test certificate provides consumers with the certainty that a tap has perfect quality, safety and hygiene properties and also produces little noise. Further quality characteristics of the Blanco taps, which prove their worth in the kitchen every day: the integrated, patented jet regulator significantly reduces limescale build-up and has an additional water-saving effect. Ceramic disks in the cartridge ensure durability and ease of turning.
