Kohler Co. Expands Steward Urinal Family with Hybrid Model
Steward Hybrid high-efficiency urinal offers 1/8-gallon flush, unique design
KOHLER, Wis. – Nov. 20, 2013 – Building on the popularity of its Steward waterless urinal, but mindful of applications with maintenance concerns, Kohler Co. brings the Steward Hybrid high-efficiency urinal to Greenbuild 2013.
"Users gravitated toward our waterless urinal for its style and water usage, but in some cases the maintenance schedule called for a different solution," says Brian Siegel, Kohler associate product manager of commercial products and water conservation. "We kept the popular design and paired it with a system that uses minimal water to enhance basin cleanliness. Now, the Steward family of urinals offers solutions for numerous applications."
Unlike standard urinals which use one gallon of water per flush, the KOHLER Steward Hybrid high-efficiency urinal offers 87 percent water savings and uses only 1/8 gallon per flush. Certified to carry the EPA WaterSense label, the Steward Hybrid urinal helps earn water-efficiency credit toward LEED certification.
The funnel bowl shape of the Steward urinal not only provides a fresh, architectural design, but also virtually eliminates splash-back. An innovative flushing spreader, located on the back wall, uses minimal water to deliver a powerful flush that cleans the entire bowl and prevents drain line issues. This model allows for excellent water savings without compromising hygiene or limiting décor options.
KOHLER Steward Hybrid urinals are available in both top and rear supply configurations and are easy to install. The footprint is large enough to cover that of most existing urinals without moving or changing tiles – ideal for replacing individual units or remodeling an entire bathroom space.
With its environmentally friendly Steward urinals, Kohler offers the opportunity to save water while also providing exceptional performance and versatile design for users.
