With touch free activation the Type 10 IR wireless button helps prevent the spread of germs, perfect for private or semi-public bathrooms where users are looking for the ultimate in comfort, convenience, and hygiene.

Easy-to-Install, Touch Free IR Button for Accessible Bathrooms

The slim Geberit Type10 IR button installs conveniently for user's hands-free operation while adding to the space’s design aesthetic. According, to Ronn Jefferson, Geberit Product Manager, “The innovative Type 10 IR touch free buttons allow the user to have full comfort and control over flush activation – they can be used as either touch free or as manual push in the case of power loss. By taking advantage of touchless technology, designers can deliver beautiful, functional, and accessible bathrooms to those clients who have special-needs family members or want to age-in-place.”

The hygienic Geberit Type 10 IR buttons pairs with most of the decorative Geberit Sigma and Omega series flush actuator plates.
