seconds. Although the effect on demand is cumulative, the shorter duration of the direct flush means that in effect fewer valves will be operating simultaneously. For example, based on a dynamic flow rate of 1.5 litres/second, DELABIE estimate that for a block of 20 direct flush toilets, three out of 20 will be activated simultaneously.


Easy to install Another major concern is the ease and convenience of installation and ongoing maintenance for direct flush systems, especially in recessed applications. DELABIE has patented an innovative housing that can be installed on IPS panels or solid walls up to 120mm. Unlike conventional housings which are cut flush to the wall, this housing features a collar with an integrated seal which provides a watertight seal against the wall finish. The housing is cut to size in front of the collar and any leaks or condensation evacuate in front of, and not behind or into, the wall. The collar also provides support for the wall actuator plate which conceals the whole mechanism and has an integrated electronic unit for sensor models. The flush valve is supplied in two kits, the hydraulic connection is made from the exterior with temporary caps to replace the sensitive elements while the system is purged. The mechanism and electronic unit are then connected inside the housing, but can be easily accessed for subsequent servicing. A backflow prevention device is also incorporated within the housing and, in the event of backflow, any water will evacuate in front of the wall.


Direct Flush systems offer a hygienic alternative to cistern-flush WCs, reducing the risk of infection in commercial washrooms. Designed for intensive use in public environments, they provide a sustainable solution that manages water consumption and adapts to the usage demands of public facilities, plus they are easy to install and maintain. Breaking the habit of specifying domestic style cisterns will deliver long term dividends in terms of improved hygiene, sustainability and reduced maintenance.


Hygiene by Design In public washrooms, a suspended WC pan offers a stylish, contemporary design. However, there are distinct functional advantages for the healthcare sector. A suspended pan offers an additional hygiene benefits, since the overall toilet surface area is reduced and access for cleaning beneath the pan is improved. Supported on a frame system, a suspended


WC pan is ideal for installation in confined spaces or service ducts. The pipework and all fixings are concealed and, where the mechanism is also recessed, the working parts are inaccessible to users reducing potential vandalism. User access and comfort is also improved


as the adjustable bracket on a frame system ensures that the WC pan can be installed at the correct level for compliance with the DOC M Building Regulations for wheelchair- accessible toilets (with the pan height 480mm above floor level). One further hygiene consideration is a


rimless WC pan. Designed for maximum hygiene, the bowl is quick and easy to clean, with no inaccessible places where bacteria can take refuge. The adjustable flush volume on the direct flush system is the ideal mechanism to complement a rimless WC pan, guaranteeing an effective rinse without splashing.
