WINCHESTER, Va., March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP), the leader in innovative, solutions-based commercial products, introduces the ecoUrinal™, a break-though water-less urinal system that utilizes a unique cartridge that lasts 10 years.  The ecoUrinal can help facilities significantly reduce operating budgets and improve hygiene while delivering real environmental benefit.

"Rubbermaid Commercial Products' ecoUrinal saves a facility an average of 40,000 gallons of water per year," said Brian Heun, Product Manager of Washroom Solutions for Rubbermaid Commercial Products. "Each ecoUrinal cartridge lasts ten years, which eliminates the need for expensive change-outs and ultimately lowers facility operating costs and increases worker productivity."

Environmentally Superior

Featuring a 100-percent waterless design, Rubbermaid's ecoUrinal™ conserves 40,000 gallons of water per fixture, which in turn helps facilities earn LEED credits.  The long-lasting cartridge reduces the amount of plastic placed in landfills.

Improves Hygiene

Water-less operation improves washroom image and hygiene by reducing moist surface areas where odor-causing bacteria normally thrive.  The ecoUrinal™ utilizes specially formulated enzyme tablets that proactively eliminate odor causing bacteria and maintain drain lines in coordination with scheduled fixture cleaning.  The ecoUrinal's touch-free operation eliminates another touch point (the flush valve) where germs could be spread by washroom patrons.

Cost Effective

Water-less urinals can help facilities significantly reduce operating budgets by eliminating the water and sewage costs associated with urinal fixtures and the need for expensive valve repairs.  The Rubbermaid Commercial Products ecoUrinal™ delivers these savings without labor intensive cartridge change-outs, saving time and money that can be reinvested in other areas within a facility.
