Urinals tend to be found in restaurants, offices, leisure centres etc, rather than in the home – although domestic urinals aren’t exactly unheard of and may just become a bit more popular as time goes on, thanks to the fact that a urinal uses very little water in comparison to a water-guzzling flushing toilet.
To this end environmental construction agency BuildingGreen.com recently calculated that a man who went to the toilet three times a day ended up flushing the toilet a total 1,020 times a year. That used around 1600 gallons of water annually – quite a cost on his water bill. Another reason for installing a home urinal could be to make life a bit easier for a male with a mobility problem.
From one to a handful of bowls
Meanwhile, when it comes to retail and other work environments, urinals are available with a single bowl or up to five or six (or more). Here at Bathroom Supastore our auto-flushing urinals stretch from one to four bowls (all of which are round in shape) and are all manufactured by leading bathroom manufacturer Lecico, whose English operation is based in Bedford. Our Lecico urinals come with a ceramic cistern and all necessary fittings such as brackets, stainless steel sparge pipes and a complete waste system. The bowls themselves are made from sturdy Vitreous China.
Urinal dividers for added privacy
At Bathroom Supastore we also provide urinal dividers in white to match the toilet bowls. These come in a contemporary curved design and can certainly add an element of elegance into a male toilet, as well as partial privacy. Like the bowls themselves, the dividers are very easy to clean by wiping down with a cloth then spraying with a disinfectant and rinsing.
