Gwenfro Community Primary School selected Geberit Mepla and Twyford ceramics to deliver on their £4.9 million makeover. Co-funded by the Welsh Government through its 21st Century Schools and Education Programme, the project required a forward-thinking approach to safety and sustainability. A range of Twyford products successfully contributed towards the BREEAM rating. Alongside Twyford air button dual flush and concealed cistern flush systems, Twyford E100 round basins were fitted with Sola push button taps, which prevent wastage by turning off automatically. Also specified were our ambulant Doc.M cubicle, Twyford Avalon rimfree® and Twyford Sola rimless toilets, which increase hygiene and safety in high volume areas.

All heating and water is safely supplied via Geberit Mepla. With its corrosion-resistant combination of synthetic and metallic materials, Mepla is economical to install, permanently leakproof and offers excellent stability and durability.
