Safe New Tapware

Each year in Australia, an average of 1,800 children are scalded to the extent they need to be hospitalised.

And of these, around one in five is due to exposure to hot tap water.

Also at risk of burns from hot tap water are the elderly and people with disabilities.

Now there's an innovative feature for specific Caroma and Dorf mixer taps.


These include a fully adjustable cartridge with an inbuilt safety function that limits the rotation of the handle, to restrict very hot water from flowing out of the mixer.

This anti-scald feature allows the water temperature to be set at a chosen maximum level.

The cartridge has a plus (+) and minus (-) sign printed on the integrated ring which can be easily moved to adjust the temperature.
