Fullerton, CA – Adams Rite’s Touchfree™ Aircraft Lavatory Product Suite is a new tool for airlines to make passengers feel comfortable flying again.  Passengers continue to express a heightened concern over the cleanliness of aircraft lavatories.  In fact, 53% of passengers now avoid the restroom altogether. In response to this, Adams Rite has developed a suite of patented Touchfree™ lavatory components, including a low-cost touchless faucet, soap & hand-sanitizer dispenser, automated waste flap, hands-free door operation, hand dryer, toilet seat, and flush switch. 

Rudy Kunze, Electro-Mechanical Business Unit Manager, says “We engineered this suite of products to bring a complete touchless lavatory experience to air travel and to address passengers’ health safety needs.  The COVID-19 global pandemic has drastically reduced air travel due to passenger concerns about the transmission of the virus onboard and we want to help.”

Jonathan Herr, Fluid Products Business Unit Manager adds “In addition to things like HEPA filters, social distancing, wearing a mask and enhanced cleaning processes, the Adams Rite Touchfree™ Lavatory can be part of the solution set for airlines. In fact, in a recent study 61% of travelers told us that they are more likely to book a flight on an airline with a touchless lavatory and 45% of travelers would pay 5-10% more for the added safety and peace of mind.”

Since the 1970s, Adams Rite Aerospace has been the technology and market leader in aerospace lavatory components..  Now we bring that same quality and innovation to address the needs of a changed aviation marketplace.
