The Palm Push is our Equal Access All Abilities tap: equally accessible for both right and left handers, and with a large diameter, low resistance push button to establish and maintain water flow with ease. Flow is initiated with a single action — in contrast to the tricky grasp-and-push/pull required to operate trough taps. Our Universal and Universal 2 models with Palm Push taps are DDA compliant.
With smooth contours and no projecting parts, the aquaBUBBLER Palm Push tap – like our Hands Free tap – is extremely resistant to damage.
All tap parts in contact with water are made of Lead Free Safe Brass – to keep drinking water pure and safe for your users.
Our Universal models are designed in accordance with the spirit and intent of the Disability Discrimination Act (1992). Because wheelchair heights vary, side pod height can be set to suit the physical needs of your users. Correct height allows just the right amount of clearance beneath the side pod, and presents the tap at an agreeable height – creating a comfortable drinking experience.

- Easy Operation Tap: large palm push button
Force to activate flow: 18 – 19.5N

Every aquaBUBBLER tap comes fitted with its own mouth guard, to prevent oral contact with the water outlet, and to block the entry of foreign material (dust, leaves, bird droppings) from the environment.
The mouthguard is designed so that any incidental contact with the device is with the cheek of the user – not with the mouth.
Currently in stainless steel – soon to be replaced by our Soft Finish model (pictured).
The base material of the Soft Finish mouth guard is a durable food-grade polyurethane, finished in rubber to protect users’ mouths against accidents arising from collisions.
Five colours are available – bright colours increase contrast to promote visibility for the visually impaired, while the grey option is provided for a neutral aesthetic.
