With time constraints, budget considerations, sustainability targets and the practicality of the end product all high on the agenda when it comes to today’s school building projects, anything that eases these burdens is key to specifiers and installers.
A key element of the washroom, and one which can transform the efficiency of a school building is the ceramics. Select products which contribute to the overall BREEAM rating, taking into account solutions that improve energy and water use. For example, Twyford dual flush systems for toilets and push button action taps provide a simple way to reduce water consumption and make better use of school budgets.
Of course, functionality is also an important factor. Consider washbasins which are designed with younger users in mind. For example, the Twyford Sola Washbasin provides superior strength and longevity through deep side walls, while also bringing greater hygiene through enclosed fixings. For younger students, the semi-recessed basins feature short projections placing everything within easy reach.
Undoubtedly there is a lot to consider when choosing the right toilet for an educational facility. Rimless pans are a good choice as they offer improved hygiene and easier cleaning; key for high volume areas where student health and safety is paramount. The open fronted Twyford variety have been designed for younger children in mind, ideal for nursery and early years’ pupils.
Space saving frames
With Geberit Duofix behind the wall frame technology and Twyford wall-hung sanitaryware, space-saving in the school washroom has never been easier. The combination of the two products allows pipework and cisterns to be neatly concealed behind the wall, saving space and cutting maintenance and cleaning time too. With only four fixing points, the system is quick and easy to install, minimising downtime even further.
