Waterless urinals specified for secondary school

  • 24 Feb 2015

The Uridan Cadet Pod waterless urinals have been installed as part of Winchmore School’s recent washroom refit

The school decided to install the urinals as a waterless solution to reduce their maintenance costs and water use.

Franke’s Uridan Cadet Pod waterless urinals have been manufactured from plastic reinforced with glass, which is hardier and more resilient than ceramic.

This makes the urinals suitable for installation in the secondary school, where they are at risk of vandalism and wear and tear.

To ensure the urinals remain hygienic, they have been designed with an odour trap which works with a biodegradable blocking fluid.

The plant-based blocking fluid stops the urinals from beginning to smell. It can be used over 7,000 times before it needs replacing.

Franke also supplied the school with its mounting brackets and tools to aid with the maintenance and installation of the systems, as well as the replacement of blocking fluids.

The Uridan system, which can be specified in a series of colours and sizes, is available through Franke Sissons in the UK
