Uridan – Experts in Waterless Urinal Design
Historically male urinals have always been flushed with water; however, Uridan waterless urinals require no water for flushing.
The Uridan waterless range was first introduced to the market in Denmark in 1998 and today Uridan is available worldwide. Watersave Australia has been distributing the Uridan range in Australia since 2003.
Paul Marsh, Managing Director of Watersave Australia says: “In 2003 Watersave Australia was the ‘trail blazer’ for waterless urinals in Australia. The concept of ‘going waterless’ was largely unknown in this country so the introduction of Uridan waterless urinals was a new concept. Initially Uridan was appealing primarily due to the environmental benefits, the water savings and the architectural design lines of the product.”
“These benefits have not changed, but today, installing Uridan waterless urinals is also seen as an astute business decision. Organisations focussing on sustainability need to look at water management to achieve the best sustainability ratings (Green Star and NABERS ratings). Uridan single bowl and trough urinals are also instrumental in saving millions of litres of water providing immediate and measurable water savings in any business. “
“But it doesn’t stop there. Today, we can calculate that Uridan is cheaper to install and maintain when compared to flushing urinals and the Uridan built in water lock means that there are no plastic cartridges, costly rubber bladder seals or messy deodorising cubes; that are largely required for other waterless urinal brands. This reduces maintenance and operating costs as well as energy and resources, “ says Marsh.
Uridan has become Australia’s leading waterless urinal brand providing architects and building designers with a complete range of waterless urinal solutions. The Uridan waterless range includes 8 different designs in single bowl urinals (available in different colours and materials), and 3 Uridan waterless urinal troughs. The Uridan privacy screen is designed to follow the architectural lines of the Uridan urinals while providing comfort and privacy for users.
Uridan waterless urinals help to create stunning bathroom designs with huge water savings, cost savings and CO2 savings. Today, the Uridan range is frequently specified for sporting facilities, commercial office towers, shopping centres, pubs, clubs, restaurants, council buildings and schools.
