At Ramon Soler we support the Hotel Sector, which is why we are one of the main suppliers of taps for the hotel industry. We know that hotels can have a high consumption of water that is not responsible and for this reason we improve ourselves every day by perfecting our products for any specific need. In addition, from the factory, we customize the taps according to the requests of the hotel or hospital technical management, to further increase water and energy savings.

How Ramon Soler helps the environment

Water saving system

90% of our taps have a water saving system incorporated that allows a 50% saving without losing user comfort.
In this way we ensure real effective savings by not having to manipulate the tap in its installation.
Other systems are also applied and are available for all taps: flow limiters and timers.

Energy and flow saving system

It allows the opening of cold water, saving energy consumption and avoiding unnecessary water consumption in bathrooms and kitchens.
Likewise, all of our single-lever and thermostatic taps include the possibility of blocking the maximum hot water temperature with our TERMOSTOP system.

Responsible investment in R & D & i

Preventive Quality

We constantly invest in Preventive Quality , which prevents possible problems by reinforcing the quality of our products, extending the useful life of the product and also offering comfort to the user.
Ramon Soler is especially committed to providing innovation and solutions to existing problems in the market in terms of safety, savings, materials, comfort, quality and installation.

We are a company that leads the technological advance of the sector with different patents and utility models: 

  • Anode of Sacrifice
  • Tourbillion water control system
  • Thermostatic faucet safety assembly
  • Quick anchor systems
  • WC Magnet, hand shower-bidet with double safety lock
  • Magnetic positioning for extensible kitchens

Ecoembes

Ramon Soler belongs to ECOEMBES because our packaging is recyclable and eco-designed. We promote an environmental education creating a social value to make people aware of the importance of maintaining an ecological lifestyle and to improve the environment. In addition, we comply with the highest efficiency in the use of resources.

Recyclable materials

Brass is the most recycled material in the world, above aluminum, plastic and glass. Ramon Soler taps are made from recycled  brass. Metal does not pollute as it is a completely recyclable material. At the end of their useful life, the faucets can be recycled unlimitedly by melting it without losing quality. In addition, other parts are made of stainless steel and the cartridge's plastics can also be recycled. In short, at Ramon Soler we care about the environment, obtaining products that can be recycled in the future, always maintaining an excellent quality.

Water saving study

Water is a really (limited resource) and it is in our hands to take care of it and respect it. Although 71% of the Earth's surface is water, only 2.5% is fresh, of which only 0.4% is found in rivers and lakes. Saving natural resources and enjoying total comfort is possible as we promote sustainability in the design of each tap.

At Ramon Soler we conduct studies that demonstrate the benefits of saving water since the slight extra cost of installing technologies that save resources benefits both the user and the planet in the medium and long term. It is certainly a great first step towards efficiency.

Flow limiters

The latest advance by Ramon Soler has been to adapt to the new demands for saving water and energy in hotels and hospitals by incorporating water limiters inside the taps. These flow limiters, being incorporated internally in each tap, are much more reliable and durable, meeting LEED and BREEAM requirements.

All our faucets and shower systems are prepared to be able to incorporate appropriate internal flow limiters for great water savings without loss of comfort. In addition, our R + D + i team gives the necessary technical advice to be able to comply with the requirements of the BREEAM and LEED certification.

Sustainable taps

Single lever 50%

In a wide variety of models with different styles and price segments, a technology is integrated that allows to reduce water consumption by more than 50%.

Showers 40%

A technology has been incorporated in the showerheads that save up to 40% of water

Thermostatics 50%

Ramon Soler® hermostats achieve the perfect temperature in a split second and also maintain the same temperature throughout the shower. They are equipped with a flow limiter (which can achieve up to 50% water savings) and a temperature limiter button (energy saving).

Electronic 70%

Opening and closing of the water with the help of presence detectors, which means a great reduction in water consumption reaching up to 70% savings. It also has the possibility of setting its temperature (maximum 60ºC). The electronic faucet includes an anti-vandal function with a security system in which, if the electrovalve is blocked, the faucet closes after 90 seconds, avoiding unnecessary waste of water.

Timed 70%

High quality automatic timed faucet for wash basin and shower, limited flow and easy operation. Most used in large installations or public places where savings in water consumption are required (70%). It also guarantees a long service life of the taps under conditions of intensive use.
They incorporate the Quick Set-Up system. A mechanism that allows us to regulate the closing time and therefore the water supply, making responsible use of the planet's natural resources.

Undefined water label

Unified Water Label is the most widely used environmental classification certificate in Europe, which clearly indicates the maximum volume of tap water, and whether the product has been installed correctly, according to the manufacturer's instructions.

This certificate gives the customer the assurance that the product complies with the ecological standards for saving water, it also allows the user to save energy and money, as well as obtaining the satisfaction of contributing to the improvement of the environment.

At Ramon Soler® we have Water Label certified taps, being able to get the label with green marking, thanks to the low flow rate of our taps. We also have labels from other countries such as Egypt or Saudi Arabia that also have their own requirements.

The European Water Label System provides general access to a catalog of bathroom products that include the Water Label certificate. Our Water Label certified taps are included in the catalog and anyone who wants it, can consult Ramon Soler's products by clicking here

Breeam

The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) , is an environmental certification of buildings that follows the UK system. This system is increasingly in demand due to the high global demand for sustainable buildings. The BREEAM evaluates buildings according to ranges from energy to ecology. It includes the categories of internal environment, materials, transport, waste, ecology, management processes and the use of energy and water.

Ramon Soler has helped in  the use of water in buildings to improve the well-being of users. The possibility of adding a water saving tap is an easy solution to reduce overall water consumption. This helps to achieve the water consumption reduction percentages required by the BREEAM certification.

Ramon Soler® taps make possible the BREEAM certification in sustainable buildings, thanks to their water and energy saving systems and flow limiters.
In addition, our R + D + i team gives the necessary technical advice to be able to comply with the requirements of the BREEAM certification.

Leed

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certificate ensures the sustainability of buildings, making available to builders and owners the necessary means to assess the performance of buildings and to improve them. This certificate integrates the life cycle of a building that goes from the selection of construction materials to the final result.

There are a series of requirements that the projects must meet in order to obtain any of the four certifications they offer: certificate (between 40-49 points), silver (between 50-59 points), gold (between 60-79 points) and platinum ( +80 points). According to the points contained in the project, one type of sustainable certification or another is given.

At Ramon Soler® we have contributed through our taps to LEED projects that have helped to improve several buildings. At LEED they are aware that saving water is very important, that is why at Ramon Soler® we can get from 6 to 12 points , in this category for each tap installed.
In addition, our R + D + i team gives the necessary technical advice to be able to comply with the requirements of the LEED certification.
