With Lake Michigan in its backyard, the Pier strives to protect and conserve water and the life around it. That’s why Navy Pier wanted water-saving flushometers that would contribute to its sustainability efforts in maximizing the guest experience while minimizing the environmental impact. Sloan SU-7009 small washdown urinal fixtures were paired with Sloan Royal Sensor Flushometers (Royal 186 SFSM) to deliver an efficient 0.125 gallons per flush (gpf). Additionally, Sloan ST-2459 Elongated Wall-Mounted Water Closets were installed with Sloan Royal 111 SFSM Sensor Flushometers. With a static load rating of 750 pounds, the water closets can withstand the Welcome Center’s high-traffic environment, while the flushometer’s 1.28 gpf contribute to water savings across the facility.
The Pier paired Sloan DSG Designer Series sinks with its BASYS EFX800 wall-mounted faucets to present an aesthetically pleasing, yet sustainable handwashing experience. Featuring a cool Silestone Spa Suede finish, the ADA-compliant sinks complement the faucets’ sleek polished chrome appearance. The faucets’ infrared sensors enable a hygienic-friendly and touch-free handwashing process, with a flow rate of just 1.5 gpm and a line purge feature to eliminate stagnant water.
“Sloan’s products do an excellent job of providing guests to the Welcome Pavilion with an elegant aesthetic that they can come to expect throughout Navy Pier," said Harry Smyrniotes, Navy Pier brand activations and marketing associate. "Not only that, but they match our unwavering commitment to sustainability.”
