Our Education Products
Cistermiser recognises the demanding requirements of educational settings and has developed products to combat common problems within washrooms such as poor hygiene practices and water wastage caused by accidental and deliberate vandalism.
Taps in schools
These are the minimum standards that the Department for Education would expect to be adopted in a ‘Building Schools for the Future (BSF)’ school:
Cistermiser manufactures both deck mounted and panel mounted basin outlets.
HygienicThe Novaspout is a no-touch panel mounted basin spout. It is activated when a user’s hands are presented to the infrared sensor which is positioned near the spout. The deck mounted Novatap operates in the same way but has an integral solenoid and sensor. Periodic hygiene rinses reduce the risk of microbial contamination such as legionella building up in the pipework to the tap.
Save WaterThe Novaspout and Novatap automatically switch off 2 seconds after the user’s hands are moved away, therefore eliminating the risk of wasting water. The anti-vandal feature closes the taps after 60 seconds of continuous flow. This is helpful if, for example, chewing gum is placed over the sensor.
For more information on Infrared taps, please refer to the technical information section.
Easyflush dual flush WC valves
HygienicThe Easyflush wave and walkaway valves provide no-touch flushing and filling of the WC. The wave is operated by the user passing their hand in front of the sensor while the walkaway is automatically activated when the user stands up or leaves the cubicle.
EfficientThe Easyflush inlet float valve operates with a delayed action, which only allows the cistern to begin refilling after it has been completely emptied and the outlet valve has closed. Easyflush also includes programmable part and full flushes, which allows the installer to minimise the amount of water required during each flush, but ensures sufficient water is provided.
For more information on Easyflush, pelase refer to the technical information section.
Direct Flush urinal flush control valves
The Direct Flush provides a no-touch flush control to each urinal individually from the mains water supply.
HygienicThe Direct Flush valves provide intelligent automatic flushing of the individual urinal after use ensuring the highest level of hygiene from the minimum volume of water. The flush of water removes any waste immediately, therefore eliminating the risk of undesirable smells.
EfficientEach flush only uses 0.5 litres of water. The valves are especially effective in reducing water wastage in washrooms with low frequency usage.
For more information on the Direct Flush, please refer the technical information section.
Urinals in school washrooms
As highlighted by the Bog Standard campaign, the use of urinals in schools can be problematic for pubescent boys. Cistermiser recognises these issues and supports the need for individual partitioning and improved hygiene conditions at urinal bowls.
Sensazone is an intelligent PIR sensor which controls the water flow to the washroom with solenoid valves. When sensazone detects a user entering the washroom it activates the solenoid valves to allow water to flow into the washroom. If no motion has been detected for a user configurable time of either 15 or 30 minutes, the valve will close the water supply to the area until further movement is detected.
If a washroom outlet is defective or tampered with, water from the mains or central supply can pass uncontrolled through the outlet valves such as taps or WCs. This waste of water can often pass undetected and cause considerable costs. As the sensazone controls the flow of water into the washroom area at the entry point, the water is prevented from passing uncontrolled through the damaged outlet, which eliminates the risk of water wastage or flooding during vacant periods.
