Washroom system resists vandalism and prevents self harm

Customised has devised a system for controlling taps and showers and the flushing of ECs and urinals that is resistant to vandalism and minimises the risk of self harm. The flow of water in the AV range is control by a piezo touch button encased in a stainless-steel surround and mounted flush on a surface. These touch buttons are wired to a control box, which passes the signal to the appropriate outlet. Each control box can control up to six valves, and each piezo button controls one outlet. The duration of the flow is programmed on installation. If the button is touched for a second time during the timed period, the water flow is stopped. The touch buttons, basin spouts and shower heads are made from 316L stainless steel and have anti-rotation washers and pins so that they cannot be dismantled, used for self harm or to harm others. Specially contoured anti-ligature versions of shower and basin outlets are available for use where self harm is a real concern. All these components are available with three tail lengths for panels and walls from 1.7 to 330 mm thick. The touch button is supplied with 3 m of cable. There are three styles of shower head, two styles of wall-mounted basin spout, a WC cistern combined flushing and filling valve, a mains-flushing urinal valve, a 6-channel controller and a power supply. Components such as solenoid valves, controllers, WC cisterns and water supply and soil pipes are inaccessible in service voids. A low-voltage power supply can serve up to 10 control units and 60 washroom products. Control features include anti-flood and remote disabling to provide external control of the water supply for added security. Each channel can be programmed to activate water outlets, WC or urinal flush 12 h after their last use to minimise legionella risk and maintain the integrity of water traps. Alarms and messages from the controller can be interpreted via a building-management system or fed directly to visual or audible indicators.
