Sloan, a world-leading manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems, has published a flushometer retrofits brochure in an effort to support facility managers as they transition from manual to touch-free restroom products.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need to replace high-touch manual products with sensor-operated products," said Mark Lawinger, Sloan senior product line manager, flushometers and fixtures. "Our new flushometer retrofits brochure is designed to provide building owners and facility managers with the information needed to effectively make this transformation with hygienic and sustainable products to create a safe restroom environment."
Sloan's brochure features a comprehensive set of easy-to-install sensor flushometer retrofits designed for improved hygiene along with increased water efficiency.
As an alternative to touch-free retrofits, Sloan's brochure also details manual handle retrofit options that come in a variety of hygienic and water-saving options. Sloan's CuVerro handle is composed of a copper surface that continuously kills bacteria*, eliminating more than 99.9 percent of bacteria within two hours. Sloan's SaniGuard handle is coated to inhibit the growth of common bacteria, molds, and fungi, while the UPPERCUT handle delivers dual-flush options to help reduce water consumption by up to 30 percent while also inhibiting bacterial growth.
* Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, CuVerro surfaces kill greater than 99.9 percent of the following bacteria within two hours of exposure: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli O157:H7, and Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE).
