Despite being a necessity, Urinoirs are the most ignored element of the bathroom. In fact, urinoirs are one of the integral items representing a washroom. It is a basic necessity in commercial spaces, offices, warehouses and factories, malls, cafes, restaurants, schools, or community halls. Urinoirs are an ideal way to save on space and increase toilet facilities.

What is a urinal/urinoir?

It is a basic form of toilet in Western countries used by men. It allows men to remain standing while urination. Urinals come in many forms, from the most basic to more sophisticated modern urinal designs made from ceramic or metal, complete with flushing mechanisms.

They are widely seen in commercial and public toilets where the flow of people is more and several urinals are to be fitted in a small space.

A lot has evolved in the washroom with the advent of new technology. Two such technologies that have changed the face of public washrooms are modern urinoirs.

  • Sensor Urinals
  • Waterless Urinals

1. Sensor Urinals

Sensor urinals or automatic urinals have equipment that facilitates automatic flushing of the urinals for better hygiene and maintenance. It comes with an infrared sensor that senses when someone is standing in front of the urinal. As soon as the sensor detects that a person has moved away, it activates the automatic flushing system. Sensor urinals save water wastage, they are easy to use and clean, and they are more hygienic than traditional urinals. Also, they have a long life span as they are hands-free so there is less wear and tear.

The classic piece sensor urinals by QUEO are designed to provide an ultra-hygienic and germ-free experience. The sleek surface of these sophisticated urinoirs doesn’t let grime hold its surface, so the remnants flow easily along with the water.

2. Waterless Urinals

Waterless urinals come with a replaceable cartridge that can be changed around every 4 to 6 months. These cartridges contain fragrant rings that help to reduce the foul smell. Waterless urinals are a great way of saving approximately 87,000 liters of water in a year. They consume less energy as no cistern or water inlet is required and improve the eco credentials of the business.
