It's not just what's on show that matters...
The last stand I visited at Ecobuild was Geberit's. It was nice to see the pipe work behind the walls and how it works to get the water into the bathroom, about it and out again. Michael Dillon (Senior Specification Manger) told me that the stand has been constantly inundated by people.
Geberit was showcasing its range of innovative sanitary and piping solutions with a strong focus on sustainable products for hotel design. Paul Ashby (Technical Sales Manager) posed next to the bathroom design.
Recognising that the secret to beautiful bathroom design lies behind the walls, Geberit offers a complete package of products from plumbing and drainage solutions such as its innovative Pluvia siphonic system for watertight roof drainage, through to easy to install frame systems for wall-hung sanitaryware, stylish flush plates and touch-free infra-red brassware.
With protecting the environment a key issue facing the construction industry, Geberit is also at the forefront of developing sustainable products that conserve energy and water. From concealed dual flush cisterns for water-saving, to HDPE pipes and fittings that offer many environmental benefits over cast iron and PVC installations, Geberit helps hotels to meet their green agendas.
As well as considering the environmental impact of its products, Geberit also takes into account other types of pollution such as noise. Its Silent-db20 drainage system brings together ease of installation, durability and greatly reduced noise pollution - all-important for ensuring hotel guests can get a good night's sleep undisturbed by the noise of flushing and running water.
"Geberit products provide the ultimate solutions for space saving, hygiene, sustainability and acoustics to create quality hotel designs," said Michael.
