Under-sink single point water heaters require taps with “open atmosphere” outlets known as vented taps. If a conventional tap were connected to such a water heater, a dangerous and potentially explosive situation could develop should the water heater malfunction and overheat. Vented taps control the flow of water to the inlet of the water heater rather than from the outlet. Barber Wilsons is aware that there is a need for a range of luxury taps and mixers for installations of this nature where a “top of the market” appearance is required. All of the taps and mixers in this brochure come from our standard traditional catalogue and have been specially adapted to meet this criterion. They are also easily serviceable when necessary and are fitted with state of the art internals.
