Like magic, the water turns on at the slightest hand movement in front of the tap, at a pre-set temperature. A clean and simple design that is hygienic too, since you don’t need to touch the tap.

BROGRUNDKenThis product is ideal for commercial usage, but I don't think it's practical for residential use. The timer for the water open is too short, the sensor has to be close distance to active the on sensor. When it stopped, it vibrates the water pipe.5
Worked when it wanted to.EduardoI really enjoyed the design, too bad the sensor worked whenever it wanted. The faucet would run on its own multiple times at night time for minutes at a time. Oddly enough it would randomly work in the daytime if i was wearing a dark colored shirt. Sadly I had to return it, because it was faulty and unreliable. I chose the BROGRUND faucet with a lever. I would definitely purchase again if a second generation BROGRUND line were manufactured.1
Faulty sensorLoThe product overheats and doesn’t work properly. We bought 2 of the same product because we liked it so much. But we had to return it because it didn’t work properly.1

Hygienic and convenient - Magic at the slightest movement of the hand
Morning rush hour can get a bit messy with all the activities around the wash-basin, which is sometimes shared by several people. BROGRUND wash-basin mixer tap with sensor makes things easier and more hygienic since the water turns on with a slight hand movement and then turns off automatically – without touching the mixer tap. No more puddles of water on or around the tap from wet hands – and the temperature is conveniently pre-set using the small lever on the side.
Water-conscious commitment in bathrooms
Every time you brush your teeth, wash your hands, shave or take a bath, you can help with something essential – saving water. That’s why all our taps have an aerator that saves water and energy while keeping the water stream just right. But that’s just a small part of a bigger effort: conserving more clean water than we use.
Antony Smith, an engineer from England, remembers when he joined IKEA and the small team that develops our taps and showers. "I realized we practice what we preach about sustainability," Antony says. "It's a refreshing experience, but it makes our job really difficult because we genuinely have to deliver on sustainability with each product."
Water is precious, but often taken for granted
So, why conserving water? Because no organism on earth can survive without it, and no new water is created. It's constantly recycled, but our freshwater supply is overused and not evenly distributed. It’s impacted by pollution, contamination and climate change, too. "Those of us who live where you can just turn on your tap may not think about saving water; it's taken for granted," Antony says.
Thinking about water at every step
Behind the scenes, we constantly explore new ways to improve water efficiency. That includes providing factory workers and their families with fresh drinking water, ensuring all factory water is cleaned before release, reducing water usage in textile production and using rainwater to flush toilets in stores. And now we are working on new taps using sensors and spray technology – and new water-efficient showers – to save even more. Every water-saving action adds up.
What are zinc and zamak?
Zinc is a metallic element while zamak is a mixture of zinc, aluminium, magnesium and copper. Both are durable materials and easy to cast into different shapes. They are good at conducting heat and electricity. Objects made of zinc or zamak are often given a surface treatment to resemble metals like gold, brass or stainless steel. Both zinc and zamak retain their good properties when they are recycled to become new objects.
