Automatic Cover / Drain Cover

Automatic Cover
Automatic Cover

Insects like to live in warm and humid environment like sinks or water pipes, so we sometimes find that cockroaches and insects creep into house from the drain holes. General insect-resistant covers were designed to avoid this situation by reducing its aperture, however it has also caused terrible draining. Using silicone to make the cover as material, it can freely change the aperture size because of soft features; furthermore, it is anti-bacterial and moisture-resistant. It not only prevent insects creep into house, but also avoid the drain hole silted up by hair or dirt, so that it will lead us to build a clean and sanitary living space.
