Complex Made Simple

Presto to showcase at the Big 5 2015

Presto has always pursued a dynamic R&D policy aimed at better controlling water and energy consumption

For the past 3 generations, Presto, the family-owned French Group has been manufacturing and selling tapware for all types of public buildings.

From November 23rd to 26th 2015, Presto will be exhibiting its tapware solutions for public places and healthcare facilities at the BIG5 Dubai tradeshow.

-Prestogreen Range: Presto Innovation
Presto has drawn on its decades of experience operating in water-scarce countries across the globe, where the need to save water is crucial, to design more water-efficient solutions that will be showcased at this year’s event. The PrestoGREEN range is fully in line with environmental approaches such as the HQE, LEED and BREEAM green building standards. PrestoGREEN offers more water savings thereby guaranteeing more credits.

Prestogreen provides increased water savings:
1)By reducing the flow time to 7 seconds, combining comfort and savings

2)Through a water flow at 1.9 L/minute that is achieved by “spray effect” aerators which ensure maximum ease of use and an optimum jet pressure quality for such a low flow rate and which can be interchanged with all types of taps.

The PrestoGREEN range is available on a large portion of Presto wash basin taps:
-Mechanical time-delayed taps: Presto 500 – Presto 600 – Presto 2000 – Presto 4000 S®
-NEW TOUCH® sensitive tap
-VOLTA® electronic tap

-Presto will be exhibiting SO’O® wash basin mixer tap from its electronic tap range. Just by merely detecting the user’s hand, it delivers the adequate amount of water to ensure perfect hygiene without having to touch the tap. It features an anti-overflow safety system that is triggered if the cell is obstructed as well as an anti-scalding safety system that limits the mixed water temperature to the required value.

-Presto® 1000XL DVA, a dual volume direct flush valve which allows a water saving of up to 90% compared to a conventional flush, thanks to its two independent adjustable water volumes. Its clean-cut, contemporary design is not only hygienic and practical, but also safe and efficient: water is always available and the two flow rates (high and low) are constant regardless of water pressure variations (between 1 and 4 bar).

Its anti water-hammering device shuts off the flush by gradually reducing the water flow, thus preserving the installations and guaranteeing their longevity. Its anti-siphon mechanism protects the drinking water system against possible back-flow of polluted water. It comes pre-assembled, which not only significantly reduces the installation time, but also provides the assurance that it is correctly placed. Disassembly for servicing and maintenance has been designed to give maximum accessibility.

-MasterMix® is a shower thermostatic mixer tap from Sanifirst® that is especially suited to healthcare institutions (hospitals, dependent care facilities for the elderly). It offers the advantage of no cross-connection between hot water and cold water (no check valve), thereby limiting the risks of bacterial proliferation (e.g. Pseudomonas, Legionella, etc.). The MasterMix® tap also offers an anti-scalding safety system for users (securing of the cartridge, cold body) and is easy to maintain.

A pioneer in the history of French tapware, Presto has always pursued a dynamic R&D policy aimed at better controlling water and energy consumption. Today still, it continues to receive prizes for innovation, its products offer concrete solutions that comply with the health and safety standards.

Presto operates in over 80 countries worldwide. In 2014, the Group opened a new subsidiary (Presto MIDDLE EAST) in Dubai and recently opened it subsidiary Presto NORTH AFRICA in Tunisia.

Being an exhibitor at BIG 5 will offer Presto the opportunity to meet with its prospective customers in the region and promote its product offerings.

Presto will be exhibiting in Hall 1 – Booth G30 at BIG 5 in Dubai, on the Business France French Pavilion.
