Convenient Sanitation

IMG_6880 (low res).png

Foot Valve is a convenient and user friendly foot operated water demand valve perfectly suited for installation in commercial kitchens, restaurants, or anywhere requiring the ultimate in contactless sanitation. 

This installation allows a user to sanitise their hands by completing the hand washing process without the need to touch any taps or valves. Start the water flowing by simply pressing down on the valve with your foot, sanitise your hands and after the process is complete, simply remove your foot from the valve and the water will automatically stop.

Each enclosure is manufactured from 430 Grade Stainless Steel and polished to a mirror finish. This ensures a long lasting and durable product which is easily cleaned.

Units are secured to the ground using four anchor points. 4 x 6.5mm holes are provided.

All materials are locally sourced and

each unit is completely manufactured

and assembled in-house.

Each unit uses a simple and robust mechanical design which doesn't require any electronics to operate.

The assembly incorporates a Walcro 111D demand valve which is installed into each enclosure.

Typical Configuration

Each Foot Valve unit controls only one stream of water (i.e. 1 x cold water stream OR 1 x hot water stream OR 1 x pre-mixed cold/hot water stream).

Typically, a thermostatic mixing valve is installed before each foot valve to control water temperature and thereafter, braided flexible water pipe or Multi Layer Pipe (MLP) is used to feed water from the mixing valve into the Foot Valve. 

Outlet water from the Foot Valve is typically connected to a point where the water source is required (i.e. a water spout on a basin).

Assembly / disassembly:

The top of the Foot Valve unit may be separated from the base plate by removing 4 x M6 hex screws (two on each side).

During assembly, the 4 x M6 hex screws (two on each side) should only be hand tightened. Do NOT use power tools such as drill drivers or impact drivers to tighten these screws or damage to the base plate will occur.

Mounting Requirements:

Each Foot Valve unit must be secured to the ground using a minimum of four anchor points.

Mounting the base plate typically requires 4 x M6 Stainless Steel nail-in anchors, which are inserted through each of the holes in the base plate and secured into appropriately sized holes drilled into a tiled / concrete surface.

Inlet and Outlet Water Connection:

If a direct connection to a hot or cold water supply is made, or if a mixing valve without integral strainers is installed, a separate strainer should be installed and connected to the inlet side of the Foot Valve.


Typically two brass 15mm Conex elbows CXMI are used, one connected to the inlet and the other connected to the outlet of the demand valve within the enclosure. Thereafter braided flexible water pipe or Multi Layer Pipe (MPL) is passed through the opening at the back of the enclosure and used to make the connection between water source and outlet location.
