right combination is key: to meet the demand for best possible hygiene, urinals
in public sanitary facilities must be designed in combination with touch-free
flushing solutions. Viega offers two different touch-free flushing
technologies. One is a concealed flushing solution and the other is controlled
by infrared technology.
public sanitary facilities, urinals are almost a matter of course, as they
offer hygienic benefits for both operators and users. However, in order to
provide a fully rounded solution, urinals also need to offer touch-free
flushing technology. The two touch-free flushing technologies of Viega are
taking hygiene up a level and they are featuring a wide range of design options.
They also provide protection against vandalism, support various optional
flushing settings and are very easy to clean.
The concealed flushing solution
the concealed flushing solution, neither a flush plate nor a cover plate is
visible on the wall. Instead, a sensor installed inside the urinal siphon
registers the changes in flow and temperature that occur whilst the urinal is
in use and subsequently triggers flushing automatically. This technology can be
relied upon to work unseen and delivers optimum hygiene and cleanliness
combined with maximum protection against vandalism.
hygiene, usability is another important consideration for the operators of
public sanitary facilities. Even here, concealed flushing scores points by
offering three different flushing volume options depending on use. They include
flushing with one or three litres, as well as a dynamic option, which
automatically detects high use frequency and reduces the flushing volume from
three litres to one. One example of high use frequency might be at half time
during a football match or at the interval during a concert. Flushing frequency
is then also limited to one activation per minute. Depending on the selected
setting, additional hygiene flushing can also be triggered automatically after
practical diagnostic function can also detect faults and respond accordingly.
Flushing is triggered automatically if a blockage in the siphon is preventing
the urinal from flushing, for example, or if the water level in the siphon is
too low. Viega's concealed flushing solution is available as an equipment kit.
It is compatible with the corresponding version of the Viega Prevista Dry
Flushing solution using infrared technology
to an infrared sensor in the flush plate, this flushing option also delivers
maximum hygiene by being touch-free. Standing in front of the detection range
of the infrared sensor for at least eight seconds will always trigger flushing.
Both the detection range and the flushing volume and duration can be adjusted
in line with expected use and to meet individual requirements.
the event of interruptions in use (such as those that might occur at certain
times in schools or hotels), the preservation of drinking water quality becomes
the top priority. To avoid stagnation in drinking water pipelines and prevent
germ formation, the infrared flushing solution is fitted with a special
technology. This enables flushing to be programmed very easily and then triggered
at specific times.
infrared technology is installed behind the wall together with the compatible
Viega Prevista Dry urinal element. Once installed, only the flush plate
(available in two different designs) with its integrated sensor is visible. The
Visign for More 200 IR urinal flush plate, for example, is available in wood
stained oak, jet black or traffic white glass, as well as in various plastic
options. So it can be harmoniously integrated into different interior design
concepts in public spaces.
