A bad smell in the bathroom can indicate that the water trap seal – the only barrier between the drainage system and the living space- has been lost, potentially posing serious health risks.
Studor’s Trap-Vent solution, the combination of a water trap and Air Admittance Valve, can easily be retrofitted to an existing bathroom, and is also ideal for small group venting in, for example, hotels, care homes and hospitals.
The Trap-Vent solution protects the water trap seal between the drainage system and the room, preventing bad odours and pathogens from escaping from empty traps.
“The Trap-Vent comes with a lifetime guarantee and also reduces siphonage noise,” comments Stephen Taylor, Studor’s UK Managing Director. “It allows freedom of design for engineers and architects to enable multiple drainage fixtures to link together,” he adds.
A combined trap with a 50mm water seal and integral AAV, the Studor Trap-Vent reduces the need for secondary ventilating in small fixture groups and replaces conventional S traps and P traps.
The vent is height adjustable, has integrated self-cleaning, is suitable for bath and shower rooms, and provides an excellent solution for problem solving in new builds as well as the retrofit market.
