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.
The 2013 Geberit roadshow is visiting merchants across the country to highlight the benefits of the company’s sanitary solutions. On show is Geberit’s Mapress pressfitting technology alongside shower frames, and the Sigma50 and Sigma10 flush plate designs. During the roadshow, visitors will have the opportunity to try their hand at fixing a Geberit Duofix frame against the clock, with a prize going to the fastest fitter.
