Sloan Broadens Toilet Product Line With Addition Of Tank-Type Gravity Toilets For Light Commercial Installations




FRANKLIN PARK, Ill. - Sloan has launched a two-piece, tank-type gravity toilet line. The Gravity Series 9000 toilets, available in single- and dual-flush models, offer another water-saving flushing option for light commercial installations.  

The Gravity Series 9000 product line includes one 1.6/1.1 gpf dual-flush toilet with a flush button on top of the tank and two single-flush models: a 1.28 gpf single-flush toilet and a 1.6 gpf toilet with the option of a left or right hand trip lever. Gravity Series toilets initiate a quiet, yet powerful gravity flush with a siphon jet flushing action.
 
The High-Efficiency Toilet models enable light commercial customers, such as small office buildings and retail stores, to save 30% on water usage compared to standard 1.6 gpf toilets. Plus, the 3-inch valve opening on all of these commercial-grade toilets allows for improved performance due to the increase in flow rate. These floor-mounted vitreous china toilets have elongated bowls available in ADA and standard height.
 
The Gravity Series toilets are among the first plumbing products to be certified under the new IAPMO R&T Inc. Green Certification program. (The Green Certification program identifies and tests products that are water-efficient based on water use reduction when compared to the water use baseline indicated in each specification.) Sloan was the first manufacturer to earn this certification for non-residential, commercial plumbing products.
 
Sloan is the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems and has been in operation since 1906. Headquartered in Franklin Park, Illinois, the company is at the forefront of the green building movement and provides sustainable restroom solutions by manufacturing water and energy-efficient products such as flushometers, electronic faucets, sink systems, soap dispensing systems and vitreous china fixtures for commercial, industrial and institutional markets worldwide.
