Geberit Sigma80 flush plate launched at KBB2012
Sigma80 flush plate
Geberit created the Sigma80 infa-red flushplates to look stylish on the wall, ideal for domestic and commercial settings including top design hotel bathrooms.
It is available in either black or mirror glass and has a built-in sensor system to provide a touch-free, automatic flush simply by detecting movement.
Effortlessly combining design, comfort and hygiene in the contemporary bathroom or washroom, the new Sigma80 touchless flush plate from Geberit has all three in abundance, creating a design focal point in the most stylish of ways.
In standby mode no lights are visible on the Sigma80; it is activated as soon as movement is detected.
Simply wave your hand in front of the shorter light on the right for a single flush and longer light on the left for a full flush.
After giving visual feedback in the form of the coloured light effect when the toilet is flushed, the plate automatically returns to standby mode when the user leaves the room.
Featuring the very latest touch-free dual flush technology, the Sigma80 has brains as well as beauty, as the flush plate has a self-learning sensor that will recognise how the users use the WC and learns about its surroundings.
What’s more because it has a touchless operation it is supremely hygienic and its striking good looks are never spoilt by unsightly fingermarks.
Requiring a mains power connections the Geberit Sigma80 is available in either black or mirror glass and offers 5 different design options as the light behind the glass can be changed in colour to tone with the bathroom to dramatic effect.
Suitable for semi-public and domestic applications, the Geberit Sigma80 flush plate is simple to install using Geberit’s tried and tested components and is suitable for use with the manufacturer’s Sigma concealed cisterns (UP320 and UP720) While an automatic flush ensures the toilet is always left clean when used in a commercial setting, the default settings can be easily adjusted during installation to suit the needs of domestic customers.
Geberit HDPE pipework has been used to construct a 35,000 litre rainwater harvesting system for the BREEAM rated Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) at the University of Exeter.
The modernisation of the Four Points by Sheraton hotel in MIlan has included the installation of Geberit Monolith sanitary modules in all guest bathrooms. Hotel manager, Maurizio Naro, selected Geberit’s Monolith system due to its space saving exposed cistern and streamlined construction. Monolith has an elegant glass surface which is available in a choice of Black, White, Umber or Mint Green.
Installers and retailers are invited to can gain hands-on experience of Geberit’s piping and sanitary systems at free training days this autumn. Places are filling fast for the modules covering the latest welding techniques using Geberit HDPE drainage pipework plus techniques for fitting wall-hung sanitaryware using the Geberit Duofix WC frame. Installers will finish the module armed with their own Geberit Duofix frame.
Geberit’s new Monolith Vario is a base cover that is added to the bottom of a Monolith WC sanitary module to allow for an adjustable height option. By raising the height of the drain the WC can be positioned at a height of up to 50cm which ensures a comfortable height for less able users. The Monolith Vario base cover is manufactured from brushed INOX in order to blend in with its surroundings and is only visible from 3-9cm.
Geberit’s Mapress carbon steel pipework is still going strong twelve years after its installation at Mater Hospital in Ireland. A recent inspection revealed that the pipework had suffered no corrosion and had remained as effective as it was the day it was installed. Compared with copper, carbon steel pipework offers significant savings yet performs just as effectively if installed correctly.
