The hero of this design is the harnessing of capacitance—the physical property of the human body which allows an electrical charge to be stored. When hands come into close proximity to the Sensor tap, an increase in capacitance is detected and water flows automatically. Likewise, when the hands are removed, a decrease is detected, turning off the water and returning the tap to standby mode.
Simple and beautifully resolved, this is just the type of cutting edge product we’ve come to expect from a brand that prides itself on being adaptable, responsive and agile.

As Andrew Shirtliff, Astra Walker brand director and co-founder explains—“Every detail and material choice is a reflection of the Astra Walker brand.”
A drive to produce sustainable and high-quality products is at the heart of the Astra Walker philosophy. With a commitment pertaining to practical energy and water-saving goals, the Sensor Tap Collection comes with a high WELS rating and low power usage. With five levels of sensitivity for waterflow accuracy and efficiency, along with a self-calibration system that enhances stability, the result ensures a seamless experience.
“As an Australian company, it’s about controlling the quality of the product and not cutting corners,” says Andrew. “We have control of the manufacturing process, even from the design phase.”
With over 20 years of experience as an Australian owned and operated tapware manufacturer, Astra Walker is a brand rooted in heritage and tradition. Fluently walking the tightrope between Contemporary and Classic, their attention to detail can be felt from the precision of form to the seamless finish—a formidable combination of technology and design.
