Sloan, a manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems, launched its Designer Urinal, which is designed to provide a distinct visual edge to the commercial restroom without sacrificing performance, the company notes. With its compact size and durability, the urinal is an ideal solution for architects specifying products for finer restaurants, hotel lobbies, upscale venues, boutique shopping and more.

“For better or worse, commercial restrooms leave a lasting impression,” says Mark Lawinger, Sloan product manager for fixtures and flushometers. “With our new Designer Urinal, not only is Sloan elevating the aesthetic of upscale commercial restrooms, but also providing industry-leading durability and sustainability all in the same fixture.”

It can be paired with any Sloan flushometer — exposed or concealed and manual- or sensor-activated — and accommodates a variety of sustainability standards with flush volume options of 0.125, 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 gallons per flush (gpf). Sloan’s CX Flushometer — a concealed flush valve with a front access panel nearly 70% smaller than the industry standard — is an effective complement to the Designer Urinal with its unique combination of style and innovation.

The urinal lends itself to a clean restroom environment, as its fully skirted trapway provides a smooth look and easy-to-clean surface, while its continuous, upward-pitched rim reduces splashing. The urinal is also available with SloanTec Hydrophobic Glaze, a unique glaze that imparts water-repellent and oil-repellent properties to vitreous china in order to inhibit the growth of germs and bacteria. Sloan’s ADA-compliant Designer Urinal is available in top spud or rear spud to meet the unique design vision for any upscale commercial restroom.
