Geberit and Twyford provide total plumbing for school makeover
Geberit and sister company Twyford have provided a total plumbing solution at Gwenfro Primary School in Wrexham as part of a £4.9 million makeover funded by the Welsh Government’s schools and education programme for the 21st century. Upgraded from an existing 1950s school the new school amalgamates juniors and infants with capacity for 315 pupils. The 2-storey building is rated BREEAM ‘Excellent’.
Twyford products installed include an air-button dual-flush concealed cistern, helping to save water and contributing to the BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. Other Twyford products include E100 round basins incorporating Sola non-concussive taps, with the push-button action preventing water wastage by turning off automatically.
Twyford Sola school rimless WCs, both closed and open fronted, have been installed. Rimless pans offer optimised hygiene and easier cleaning. The open-fronted models are designed for younger children.
The school also includes an ambulant Doc. M cubicle with Twyford’s Avalon back-to-wall rimless WC and grab rails in a contrasting colour.
All plumbing for heating, hot and potable water uses Geberit Mepla multi-layered pipe, which is more stable and durable than plastic pipes and quick to install.
John Roberts of plumbing and heating installer Margden Heating said, ‘We were very keen on the idea of getting everything from one source, and we haven’t been disappointed. The ease of installation, available of the supply chain and customer support is excellent.’
