Fullerton, CA – Adams Rite Touchfree Lavatory products have been nominated to the 2021 Crystal Cabin Award shortlist. The Adams Rite’s Touchfree™ Aircraft Lavatory Product Suite is a new tool for airlines to help 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 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. 

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