Public Drinking Fountain / Drinking Fountain

Public Drinking Fountain

There is a need for an appropriate Public Drinking Fountain solution for Brazilian cities.
So, we developed a drinking fountain with iconic identity (water tap) that meets wheelchair and non-wheelchair without distinction as it has its water outlets in average heights for the two groups.
The product has yet timeless, an appropriate solution to fill bottles of up to approximately 3 liters, LED lighting that identifies the water cooler at night and it is also an aesthetic appeal, totally enclosed hydraulic system and comfortable way to support during use, all based the purest strains of Universal Design.
