The Splash Lab developed The Ribbon to meet a need for a commercial fixture that was both technologically advanced, sustainably minded, and humanistic in its design. Nowhere is this more clear than in the design of the hand dryer. At the time, a pioneering innovation upon its debut, the deck-mounted fixture is placed over the basin, keeping water runoff in the sink, and off restroom floors where it can be at best unsightly and at worst a safety hazard. A small vent on the underside of the fixtures produces a gentle but powerful stream of air that directs water off the hands and into the basin in a process that is both pleasant and hygienic. The sensor is placed just in front of the vent, so triggering the airflow is a seamless and intuitive gesture for the user.

Do you have a battery option for the Ribbon system?

Yes, an additional battery power option is available for purchase for the Ribbon Faucet. The dryer requires mains power.

How will my users tell which product is which?

While rigorous testing has determined the Ribbon’s 1-2-3 system and graduated fixture heights to create an intuitive flow, etched symbology for each event (soap, water, and air) is available as an add-on. These easy-to-interpret icons reinforce the already straightforward process.

What sink is best for the Ribbon system?

Our Monolith Types A and B are designed for use with deck-mounted fixtures such as the Ribbon System, and this configuration has been rigorously tested for functionality and long wear. However, the Ribbon is appropriate for use with any sink with ample installation space.

What is the warranty for the Ribbon system?

The Ribbon System has a one year warranty for parts and labor.

Why is the Ribbon Dryer more hygienic than other options?

The Ribbon Dryer has a truly innovative design that is more hygienic by twofold than other models. First, the dryer incorporates a HEPA filter to ensure that the hands are exposed to the purest possible air. Second, the placement of the dryer over the basin eliminates water droplets from the restroom environment, rather than allowing them to fall on the floor, or sit in the basin of a freestanding unit with a drying chamber.
