The Inside Story
Thousands of people are scalded each year, with most burns occurring in washrooms. Installing faucets with the most effective state-of-the-art water-tempering technology can help reduce potential liability. LavSafe™ offers the easiest way to meet strict plumbing codes and standards like ASSE 1070, without requiring a separate thermostatic valve. With fewer parts and fewer leak points, you'll save on installation time, inventory, and you'll notice fewer callbacks for maintenance.

Medical statistics reveal that scalding caused by hot water is the leading cause of severe burn injuries in the United States. Children under the age of five, the elderly, and people with mental and physical disabilities are more susceptible to scalding.
Thermal shock, on the other hand, is the physical reaction of a person to a rapid and uncomfortable change in water temperature-- whether hotter or colder. The danger of thermal shock lies within the individual’s sudden movement away from the water coming from the shower, which could cause a fall and/or serious injury.
