Sahara – Space, Energy and Time Efficient
The Billi Sahara features one of the smallest under counter units of its kind in the world. With space at a premium in city offices, the Sahara is focused on space savings, and can sometime be half the size of others on the market. This maximises precious under counter storage space.
The Sahara uses the Billi trademarked Thermostore tank technology and insulation materials which boasts an energy efficiency level 50 times that of a traditional hot water tank. In addition all Sahara systems include a 7 day, 24 hour time switch to conserve power, or alternatively can be put into Standby mode which conserves energy by powering down after a prescribed period of non use.
With its innovative technology the Billi Sahara dispenses more cups of boiling water instantly than any tap of its kind on the market. This allows for peak periods of high demand in the teapoint or canteen environment. Billi regards instant dispense as the most important measure of a boiling tap capacity.
The Billi Sahara does not require cupboard ventilation or ventilation grilles. It has no cooling fan, which gives the benefit of space saving and cost reduction.
All our boiling taps come with an integrated safety switch. The red lock icon demonstrates when the safety switch is activated, simply press the switch to release the lock and allow full use of boiling water. The system will revert to safety mode after 8 seconds of non use.
Splash free delivery
Electronic control of boiling water delivery ensures user safety. The flow is momentarily slowed as the water exits the dispenser, eliminating splashing as the water enters the cup.
Following collaboration with architects, designers, engineers and end users, Billi has created an exceptional range of dispensers to suit our Boiling and Ambient systems. Comprising three different styles of tap in four finishes and a corresponding drainage font, this range ticks all the boxes with clean sophisticated style, advanced safety technology, ease of installation and energy efficiency.
Billi premium filters ensure that health threatening pollutants and impurities such as sediment, chemicals, heavy metals and pesticides are removed leaving you with refreshingly clean drinking water, every time. Replacement filters can be purchased from one of our approved merchants, or direct from Billi by calling 020 7456 6789.

Space saving. With a design focus on space saving our Sahara systems are often half the size of comparative underbench products and set the standard for space saving at an amazing 180mm wide.
Even the largest Sahara machines still maintain the same compact dimensions. High performance, low space usage, and just one 13a power supply needed.
Stand-by mode. All Sahara systems also include an energy saving standby mode that can be selected to activate after a preset time of non use, enabling partial power down to conserve power.
Superior insulation is critical to sustainable performance, and the Sahara incorporates high tech materials which assist in making the Sahara one of the lowest carbon footprint taps on the market.
