Schell: A leader in fittings technology for more than 80 years

Responsibility for health

User and drinking water hygiene in sanitary rooms? Now that is more important than ever. Therefore it is better to use fittings from SCHELL, the hygiene expert.

Achieving consequent sanitary room hygiene is very challenging irrespective of the sanitary room being in a hospital, residential nursing home or school or similar objects. This is due to, either, the sanitary system not being used continually or due to the risk of transferring germs and should be avoided as best as possible.

It is a challenging task that SCHELL has been committed to for many years. It is not surprising that they are globally regarded as one of the pioneers of technical solutions, who predominantly have one objective: to protect the health of the user.

Water-efficient, robust and hygienic.

Many SCHELL fittings can be controlled without contact. On the one hand, it improves the hygiene in heavily used sanitary rooms and, on the other hand, also saves water. But that is not sufficient. In objects where longer periods of interruption in use occur, e.g. schools, additional selectable stagnation flushing for electronically-controlled washbasin fittings also further contribute to hygiene. Then, at the latest, 24 hours after using the last time, the fittings trigger a flow of water for approximately 20 seconds to prevent water stagnating in the pipelines and, thus, prevent germs developing.


If you especially value hygiene and water-savings of up to 62% compared to single-lever fittings, then you cannot overlook the infrared controlled wash basin fittings from SCHELL.

Self Closing Control

Different technology, same efficiency: self-closing wash basin or wall-mounted draw-off taps with long-life cartridge technology and in robust all-metal design restrict the flow of water by up to 56%.

Concealed flush Valves

The tried and trusted SC II cartridge technology, attractive control buttons, compact dimensions and easy-to-make settings are good reasons for using concealed flush valves from SCHELL.
