automated solutions for
school washrooms
Cistermiser recognises the demanding
requirements of educational settings
and has developed products to combat
common problems within washrooms
such as poor hygiene practices and
water wastage caused by accidental
and deliberate vandalism.

These are the minimum standards that the Department for
Education would expect to be adopted in a ‘Building Schools
for the Future (BSF)’ school:
• The taps should be wall mounted to avoid the
dirt and germ build up that can occur around
deck-mounted taps.
• Taps should be WRAS approved.
Source: Standard specifications, layouts and dimensions
infrared taps
• The taps should be sensor operated and turn
off automatically with less than one litre of use.
This will help avoid the germ transfer that
happens with more traditional touch operated
mechanisms. It will also save water and minimise
the risk of potential flooding.
novaspout
The novaspout ia a no-touch infrared panel mounted
basin outlet. It is activated when a user’s hands are presented to the infrared sensor. The outlet is fully automated and is activated by the movement of the user’s
hands. Periodic hygiene rinses reduce the risk
of microbial contamination such as legionella.
Cistermiser also make the novatap a deck mounted
basin outlet for simple retrofit or where panel mounted
is not an option.
novatap
The novatap and novaspout automatically switch off
two seconds after the user’s hands are moved away,
eliminating the wasted water from excessive run-on as
happens with percussion (“push”) or traditional taps.
The anti-vandal feature closes the taps after 60
seconds of continuous flow. This is helpful if, for
example, chewing gum is placed over the sensor.

urinals in school washrooms
As highlighted by the Bog Standard
campaign, the use of urinals in schools
can be problematic for pubescent boys.
Cistermiser recognises these issues
and supports the need for individual
partitioning and improved hygiene
conditions at urinal bowls.

direct flush urinal flush valve
The direct flush provides a no-touch flush control to
each urinal individually from the mains water supply.
The direct flush valves provide intelligent automatic
flushing of each individual urinal after use, ensuring
the highest level of hygiene from the minimum volume
of water. The flush of water removes any waste
immediately, eliminating the risk of undesirable smells.
Each flush only uses 0.5 litres of water. The valves
are especially effective in reducing water wastage

case study – cathays high school, cardiff
location
the solution
Cathays High School is a mixed comprehensive school for
11 to 19 year olds serving the heart of Cardiff. As is the case
with many progressive schools, Cathays High elects a School
Council made up of elected representatives from all year
groups. They meet to discuss and act upon ideas to improve
the school. One wish passed on from all age groups was to
seek a method of improving the flushing of toilets.
The need was for a flush system that could be activated
automatically without any effort on the part of the user.
Cistermiser’s solution was to adopt the easyflush system but
with walkaway operation. Under this new mode of operation a
flush is automatically triggered whenever a user gets up or
walks away from the toilet. However it can also be activated by
the user bringing their hand toward the sensor.
the project
Research into ways of remedying this problem led
to consideration of Cistermiser’s ‘hands free’ flushing system
already in successful use in other schools and colleges.
Mr Gavin Bryant, the Schools Mechanical Advisory Officer for
Cardiff County Council suggested that Cistermiser be invited
to demonstrate the easyflush system and the company
immediately sent a team to the school to review the problem
first hand. The suggestion of using the Cistermiser easyflush
system in the usual ‘wave’ mode, where the user simply
passes a hand in front of the infrared sensor to activate a flush,
was not considered wholly satisfactory.
It was felt that this could be easily ignored as with manual
flushing, so the team went back to talk to Cistermiser’s R & D
Department which was already investigating other methods of
flush activation.
The IR sensors operate on a dual flush system, delivering a
part flush if the user leaves within 40 seconds or a full flush if
that period is exceeded. The ‘walkaway’ method is simple,
hygienic and economical since it restricts water use to a
minimum.
As a trial the Cistermiser Team fitted four of the cubicles used
by the boys with easyflush valves with walkaway flush
activation and it has certainly solved the problem highlighted by
the students. The school was particularly pleased with the
co-operation and personal service from Cistermiser from the
initial contact to the project’s completion. The easyflush toilets
have now been in operation for nearly two years and have
resulted in cleaner toilets and a more hygienic environment for
the pupils.
BREEAM Education helps
schools and further education
colleges to set environmental
targets for new and refurbished
education buildings.
It also serves as a useful tool for designers by demonstrating the
environmental performance of their designs. Assessments can be
carried out at the design stage and verified post construction for
primary and secondary schools and further education colleges
including the following:
• New schools • Major refurbishment projects • Extensions
The development of BREEAM Education was driven by the
sustainable development action plan, which called for both new
build and refurbishment projects to achieve no less than a
BREEAM ‘VERY GOOD’ rating.
