Italian water dispenser manufacturer Zerica has introduced contactless ‘hover’ buttons for its newly-launched Kolumna water dispenser, which allow users to select a drink without making physical contact with the buttons.
The Kolumna unit is able to dispense filtered chilled, ambient or sparkling water. To use the buttons and select a drink, consumers need to hover a finger over the button which corresponds to their drink of choice.
Zerica also announced that the touch-free buttons will be available on several of its water dispenser models, adding to the touch-free solutions that the company has already introduced to the market, such as foot pedals and a connected app.
A statement from Gemma Tuxford, UK business and account manager at Zerica, said: “This innovation comes in direct response to the pressing market need for touch-free water dispensing.
“Characteristically, Zerica has been quick to react in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and now produces multiple hands-free workplace hydration solutions like the Kolumna.”
