150mm (6") Stainless Steel Tiles with Non-Return Valves
The conventional floor drain was historically used for drainage during the washing of floors, the emptying of old mop buckets and gravity-drained washing machines. Presently with dry floor-cleaning techniques and washing machines that pump waste water directly into the drainage system, their role has changed. Today, they primarily serve as emergency drains. Meaning they drain water that results from a water emergency due to an overflow, a blockage or water appliance malfunction. However, emergency drains are not used frequently and the requirement to use a water seal severely restricts their functionality.
Conventional floor drains adopting a water or liquid seal all tend to suffer from the same generic problems; siphoning, odours, evaporation, blockages and pest entry. This poses a huge hygiene problem and can leave a negative perception in the open spaces concerned.
The Hygiene Drain is a simple, multi-patented and cost effective solution for both new build and retrofit applications. Hygiene Drain is an accessible, completely closed system and takes away the need for utilising liquid seals. It simplifies the installation process and provides a hygiene seal between the open space and the drainage system.
The key benefits of The Hygiene Drain are as follows:
The functionality of The Hygiene Drain is simple and ingenious. The Hygiene Drain sits watertight inside the drain. It's chosen seal stays open when water is flowing, but closes when the water stops. When the seal is closed, it successfully resists any emission of sewer gases, even under extreme symphonic conditions.
Whilst on each installation the installer many encounter a few variables, the generic process is as follows:
As the new Hygiene Drain no longer relies on a water seal to maintain its integrity, there is very little(if any) reactive maintenance required.
Recommended planned preventative maintenance is as follows:
