First No-Touch Washroom Design Solution Launched


The Building Centre February 26th 2014.   Franke Washroom Systems is launching a brand new concept in the UK with The Way 2 Solutions to design, plan and supply touch-free commercial washrooms.


Franke Washroom Systems, also known as Franke Sissons, is the leading provider of stainless steel and solid surface washroom solutions and is one of four market leading names brought together by The Way 2 Solutions. This one-stop concept, which has proven very effective throughout mainland Europe, brings Franke Washroom Systems together with Forbo Flooring Systems, Dorma door-locking systems and Ettlin Lux LED lighting and textiles to create a complete resource for washroom design and specification for every commercial setting no matter what the budget available from three tiers of specification; economy, business and first-class.


Andy Dukelow, Managing Director of Franke Sissons explains the thinking, “These partner brands and companies have hundreds of years of combined experience designing commercial washrooms.  We have worked for many years to provide water saving, innovative, hygienic and sustainable washroom solutions all over the World.  This new offer means that architects and specifiers can use The Way 2 Solutions with total confidence that what they specify will serve their own customers for many years to come.  All products are CE Marked and carry WRAS approvals, in addition many carry the BMA’s Water Label for efficient water use too. Our aim is to save our customer’s time, money and valuable resources in the specification process.”


On The Way 2 Solutions display are water saving products including touch-free taps, the latest flush controls, low flush WCs, water free urinals, a touch free cubicle and the very latest water control technology from Franke Washroom Systems’ A3000 management system which can be connected or partially connected to a buildings own management system.  Completely touch-free washrooms can be specified thanks to a complete range of no-touch products on display. 


Andy Dukelow concludes; “From the sanitary ware to the fittings, the lighting to the ceiling and from the floor to the cubicles, the entire project can be specified from the products and services on display.  It’s a genuinely unique proposition with the cast iron guarantee of longevity and customer support.”
