Protects yourself and everyone else with a presettable Maximum Temperature

Fittings with a triduon® thermo cartridge offer a very simple, yet effective solution wherever scalding protection is desired or required. This cartridge lets you set a maximum temperature (e.g. 106°F / 41°C or 113°F / 45°C), which the water leaving the outlet does not exceed. It’s an intelligent solution that not only makes sense in the shower and for the bidet, but also in washrooms at preschools, kindergartens and nursing homes to protect these sensitive children and seniors against scalding.

Scalding Protection is important

Kartuschen für die Sanitärtechnik

70 % of all injuries in children under the age of four are caused by burns*. Adults will receive third-degree burns after 31 seconds when the water temperature is 129°F / 54°C; for small children, it only takes ten seconds – and if the water temperature is 140°F / 60°C, one second is enough. What’s the reason behind this? Small children have thinner skin. Scars take longer to form and finish developing, and they stretch more as children grow. With a proportionately larger body surface area than adults, children are also at a disadvantage if the burns are extensive as their body dehydrates faster and loses more heat.

Senior citizens are another risk group because skin becomes thinner and more sensitive with age. Australia and other countries have special legal requirements regarding scalding protection for precisely this reason. In Germany, the DIN 18024 (Part 2) standard stipulates that the maximum water temperature for sanitary fittings in public buildings must not exceed 113°F / 45°C.

Ceramdisc® Ceramic Discs – as hard as Diamond

At the heart of the triduon® thermo cartridge are the nearly diamond-hard Ceramdisc® ceramic discs with CeramTec’s special geometry. Any particulates in the water such as sand, rust or lime are ground between the sliding surfaces without damaging the discs. The ceramic discs effortlessly compensate for temperature and pressure peaks.
