FRANKLIN PARK, ILL.—Sloan Valve Company’s Uppercut Dual-Flush Flushometer has been chosen as one of the top 10 green building products for 2006 by Sustainable Industries Journal, published by Celilo Group Media. A panel of green building experts singled out the Uppercut as being one of the most innovative advances in the commercial building industry.
Sloan’s Uppercut Dual-Flush Flushometer gives users two flush options: Tilt the handle up for liquid waste, which saves about half a gallon per flush. Or push the handle down for a standard 1.6-gallon flush for solid waste. The distinctive green handle on the new patent-pending Flushometer features an antimicrobial coating for protection against germs.
Sloan also offers an Uppercut Dual-Flush Handle retrofit kit, which can be fitted onto manual Sloan Flushometers for immediate water savings.
Uppercut had previously been honored with a Top 10 Green Building Products award from BuildingGreen Inc., publisher of the green building publications GreenSpec Product Directory and Environmental Building News, and received endorsement from the Green Restaurant Assn. for helping the industry become environmentally sustainable.
