What to consider when specifying your kitchen taps
Bib Tap Buying Tips! Just a few
A bib tap is a wall mounted garden tap – right? Wrong! Well
partly wrong. Bib taps are used as outdoor taps but are also used as kitchen
taps especially when using a Belfast sink.
There are 2 main decisions to be made:
1: Cross head traditional taps in both brass and
2: Quarter turn ceramic lever taps in both brass and
3: 1/2" Crutch head taps in polished brass only.
4: 3/4" bsp chunky crutch head taps in polished
brass only . Ideal for cafes, bars, or where size is important.
Useless bits of information: A bib
tap can also be known as a bib cock. Cross heads are also known as
capstan handles. A Crutch head is also known as a T bar.
Most kitchen taps are threaded ½” bsp
and supplied by 15mm copper pipe or plastic equivalent.
