Barski Design has developed a high-quality hydrant family for Düker and its partner, Uno Hydranten & Service AG in Rapperswil-Jona, which was presented to the public for the first time at AQUA-Suisse in Zurich. The new UNO above-ground hydrant for securing the supply of extinguishing water in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein combines high aesthetic quality with optimum user-friendliness, robustness and precise functionality with an attractive, emotional appeal. UNO does not follow short-lived trends, but is solid, sustainable, technically sophisticated and aesthetically durable. The shape generated for optimum water flow is simple and minimalist, yet gives the hydrant its unique character with a high recognition value.
