Kohler launches new version of colourful child-sized toilet

United Arab Emirates: Tuesday, August 02 - 2011 @ 12:08

Rising to the challenge again and continuing its commitment to provide functional, water conserving products without sacrificing design in the region, Kohler has launched a water-savings version of this child-size bowl, paired with the WAVE flushometer to offer a high efficiency, ultra-accurate commercial solution for kids.

Previously a 6 litres-per-flush toilet (lpf), the new version of the kid’s primary toilet uses only 4.8 lpf, making it 20% more efficient and designating this product as a High-Efficiency Toilet (HET). Designed mainly for day-care and school installation, the Primary 4.8 toilet bowl supports the growing trend for improving water efficiency in the Middle East.

“The Middle East has become increasingly active in its water conserving efforts in recent years. More and more measures and educational initiatives are being implemented across the region to increase awareness and improve use of our essential yet scarce water resources. We are witnessing a new responsible approach to construction with new buildings being built ‘green’, as well as existing buildings undergoing green retrofits to reduce their environmental impact,” Mohamed Nada, Regional Marketing Manager for Kohler Co. in the Middle East. “These efforts are ultimately for the benefit of our future generations, so it is great to now offer a more efficient, but still appropriately sized toilet to help teach the region’s children about water efficiency.”

In addition to promoting water conservation, this toilet addresses common issues found with commercial toilets – height, attractiveness and accuracy. With its accessible height and colourful seat, the Primary offers a level of comfort for its users. Utilizing the precise WAVE touchless flushing technology, the 4.8 Primary toilet eliminates false actuation, as well as unnecessary fear.

“False flushes can be startling to even adults,” says Mohamed Nada. “Children tend to have increased fear of commercial toilets that have low accuracy rates and flush multiple times. This new version of our child-size toilet all but eliminates that fear with the WAVE touchless technology.”

Kohler Wave Technology only works upon user-controlled actuation and water delivery. In other words, the user must “physically” motion for the flush, which significantly reduces false flushes and saves water. This “waving” motion also eliminates the fixture from actuating during use, which is more hygienic for the user. This Wave Technology fits well with the needs of children who require intuitive products inside school restrooms.

In addition to its efficient aspects, the Primary toilet’s features are designed specifically with children in mind. These include a 25.4-cm high bowl that is a more comfort¬able height for small children and a complimenting seat that features a smaller opening and scalloped edges that are actually strategically placed hand holds youngsters can use to steady themselves. An industry first, the seat is offered in a choice of bright primary colours that kids love – red, blue or yellow – with green hinges, as well as standard white. The seat will fit on any conventional round-front toilet bowl and is sold separately.

As a global design and technology leader of products for the kitchen and bath, Kohler Co. offers plumbing products under its Kohler and Sterling brands that are designed to conserve natural resources while remaining true to a singular level of quality of performance and design. Whether specifying plumbing products that help buildings earn Leed water-efficiency points, reducing facility operating costs or accommodating the preferences of homeowners, environmentally friendly Kohler fixtures and faucets address the challenging demands of customers and preserve one of our most precious natural resources.
