If there's one place to test the quality, performance and durability of a plumbing fixture, it's a commercial restroom. In addition to high traffic volumes, the sheer variety and varying age of commercial buildings (and water supply systems) can make it difficult for specifiers, architects and engineers to find solutions that will deliver reliable, long-term performance.
And decreasing flush volumes aren't making things any easier. When the "margin of error" is reduced, it's more important than ever to match fixture and flushometer performance as closely as possible.
As the leader in smart, sustainable restroom design, Sloan is the only manufacturer exclusively focused on the unique needs of the commercial customer.
The total commercial restroom
At Sloan, we have been developing flushometers for more than 110 years. And we've put that experience and knowledge to work engineering fixtures to match the performance that made us the first name in commercial restroom applications.
Sloan vitreous china fixtures are engineered for outstanding performance and durability in both retrofit and new construction applications. Our comprehensive lines of water closets, urinals and lavatories pair perfectly with our industry-leading flushometers and faucets, providing you with the right solution for a wide range of unique applications.
SloanTec® Hydrophobic Glaze
SloanTec is a unique and proprietary glaze that imparts permanent hydrophobic (water-repellent) and oleophobic (oil-repellent) properties to vitreous china. This permanent glaze lowers the surface energy of vitreous china, which can be measured by calculating the contact angle of a droplet of water. SloanTec Glaze produces the greatest contact angle of any ceramic fixture available, and that low surface energy reduces the ability of liquid and solid waste to adhere.
