Product innovations to benefit healthcare facilities, schools and more
WOODRIDGE, Ill. –- Gerber, an industry leader in high performing plumbing fixtures, has
announced seven new hand hygiene sinks to benefit environments where hygiene and crosscontamination control is of concern – hospitals, doctors’ offices, schools, child care centers,
industrial buildings, among others.
Leading the introduction is the Monticello™ Hygienic Hospital Basin (Model NH-12-661; list
price $800). This sink offers the industry’s highest level of cross-contamination protection.
Features include:
 Deep basin with sloped angles to minimize splashing, germ-pooling and contamination
 Offset drain to reduce splashing and aerosolization from direct contact with water stream
 Sealed overflow to eliminate hazards of germ collection
Several other Gerber sink options are now also part of the hygienic offerings:
 NH-12-654/658
 NH12-834/838
 NH12-474/478
Each of these sinks has a sealed overflow to eliminate contamination risks and can be installed
for ADA compliance (with the exception of NH-12-661, which is not ADA compliant).
“According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) approximately 722,000 inpatients per year
contract infections from the surrounding environment in healthcare facilities, which results in an
increase in the cost of care,” says Eric Peterson, Gerber’s vice president of sales. “Because of
that, hospitals and medical facilities are heavily incentivized to reduce the risk of patient
contamination and infection for inpatient care. These sink options can make a significant
difference in strengthening those environments and eliminating risk.”
