Frequently Asked Questions

What is a urinal trough?

A urinal trough is a water-conserving fixture designed for public restrooms. Unlike traditional urinals, which use individual bowls, urinal troughs are elongated, sloped basins that multiple users can use simultaneously. Commercial urinal troughs are primarily made from materials like stainless steel or glass-reinforced plastic (GRP).

What are the benefits of urinal troughs?

Urinal troughs are renowned for their water efficiency, and they use significantly less water per flush than traditional toilets. Urinal troughs are also available in waterless formats, and this makes them a sustainable choice and an effective way of reducing water consumption in high-traffic facilities. In addition, the elongated design allows multiple users to stand side-by-side. This allows for more efficient space usage.

Hygiene is also a key priority. The unique shape of our urinal troughs minimises splashback, and this creates cleaner and more sanitary restrooms. Many urinal troughs also enhance the overall user experience by incorporating features such as odour control.

How big are urinal troughs?

Urinal troughs typically come in a variety of sizes. This allows them to suit different restroom spaces and an array of user needs. The standard dimensions for urinal troughs can vary, but they often fall within the range of 600mm to 1800mm in width. This wide width allows multiple users to stand side-by-side comfortably. They are ideal for high-traffic restrooms such as those in sports arenas, stadiums, schools, and other public facilities.

In terms of depth or front-to-back measurements, urinal troughs are usually around 270mm to 290mm in depth. This provides ample space for users to stand without crowding.

Custom sizes are also available, and your choice of size depends on the available space, the expected traffic, and the layout of the restroom.

What are the disadvantages of urinal troughs?

  1. Privacy Concerns
    One of the primary drawbacks of urinal troughs is the lack of privacy. Users are exposed, which can make some individuals uncomfortable. Therefore, they may not be suitable for all restroom settings.
  2. Limited Design Options
    Urinal troughs have a straightforward design. In some cases, they do not offer the aesthetic versatility that traditional urinals do. This limitation can affect the overall look and feel of the restroom.
  3. Splashback
    Although designed to minimise splashback, urinal troughs can still produce some splatter. This can impact the cleanliness of the restroom and user comfort.
  4. Maintenance Challenges
    Cleaning urinal troughs can be more challenging due to their elongated design, and any debris or blockages may require more effort to address.
  5. Space Requirements
    Urinal troughs require more linear wall space than individual urinals. This can limit their suitability in smaller washrooms or those with irregular layouts.
  6. Water Supply Constraints
    In some regions, water supply constraints or low water pressure can affect the effectiveness of urinal troughs in flushing waste. This can lead to odour and hygiene issues.

It’s important to consider these disadvantages when deciding whether urinal troughs are suitable for your specific restroom or facility. In many cases, the benefits in water conservation and efficiency outweigh the drawbacks, but individual circumstances and user preferences should be taken into account.
