Roca, the leading global bathroom brand, is delighted to be exhibiting at Ecobuild 2012, the worlds largest event for sustainable design and construction. Roca has always been committed to the environment in terms of both its products and its production processes. The business is keenly aware that water is a unique, limited resource, and has spent more than 50 years developing water and energy saving devices for its products. Rocas commitment to the responsible use of water also includes its now firmly established special initiative - the We Are Water Foundation, which was set up to raise awareness of and mitigate the negative effects associated with the lack of adequate water resources. The Foundation is working with NGOs such as Oxfam and Unicef to ensure the distribution of donations to cooperation projects across the globe.
New for 2012 is the unique In-Tank Meridian WC, a revolutionary bathroom fitting concept which incorporates the tank in its interior its the first WC to offer wall-hung and back-to-wall options which do not require a concealed cistern, facilitating ease of installation and creating an ideal solution for small spaces. It features a three function, dual-flush push button for 3 / 4.5 / 6 litre flushing. Water is introduced through a feeding mechanism and then air is introduced by a revolutionary blower which has been developed in collaboration with Fluidmaster. This innovative blower pushes water through the toilet rim to flush the WC. Very clever!
CleanRim The Gap is a close coupled BTW, 4/2 litre WC, and a new addition to The Gap collection. Suitable for both commercial and domestic applications, the rimless design makes it much more hygienic and very easy to clean. Its new 4/2 litre dual flush has been extensively tested and, although it uses an impressive 30% less water than our other current dual flush systems, Rocas CleanRim produces outstanding flushing results.
Rocas latest addition to its wide range of eco-friendly taps is the L20, an entry level brassware collection. The competitively priced L20 brassware collection comprises basin mixers, bidet mixers and bath-shower mixers. Easy and intuitive to use, the L20 features Rocas Cold Start system, where the flow of water always starts with cold meaning hot water systems are only fired up when necessary. Furthermore, the additional Eco Click function saves energy and water and its embellished base ensures a neat finish between the tap and basin.
Roca makes no apologies for showing once again its multi-award winning W+W. Still setting the benchmark for the bathroom industry in terms of eco-credentials, this all-in-one WC and washbasin has been designed to maximize space and conserve water. Incorporating Rocas innovative water reuse technology, the W+W uses waste water from the basin to fill the WC cistern, thereby reducing water usage by up to 25% compared to a standard 6/3 litre dual-flush WC.
