Backed by research and extensive testing, Swiss design and manufacture delivers low maintenance, cost-effective products that allow unrivalled design flexibility. Geberit’s plumbing and sanitary systems have been available in Australia since 2002, and to the delight of many a designer and design enthusiast alike, can now be found in many stores across the country.
Since introducing the first concealed cistern 50 years ago, Geberit has continued to innovate, expanding to a diverse range of high-performance products that incorporate common elements for maximum compatibility. Now, to meet the demands of an increasingly vertical architecture and construction industry, Geberit has unveiled Pluvia, a roof drainage system, and Sovent, a building drainage system. Both new launches complement Geberit’s trade waste solutions, and emphasise cost and space savings without compromising performance.
Designed taking advantage of the latest in siphonic drainage technology, the Pluvia system features a high discharge rate that significantly reduces the required number of pipes needed in the installation, compared to traditional roof drainage systems. A non-sloping collector pipe is connected to fewer discharge stacks that in turn use pipes of reduced dimensions. In less words, what this means is that when used together, Pluvia and Sovent can offer a space advantage of up to 63% more usable space. The self-cleaning pipes are quick and easy to install in all types of roofs, including green roofs, and can discharge up to 100 litres of rainwater per outlet.
Pluvia can be paired with Sovent, a space-saving, high performance single stack drainage system. Using a patented branch inlet fitting, Sovent reduces fluctuations of pneumatic pressure inside stacks, thus preventing the siphonage of connected taps and offering a 30% increase in discharge capacity when compared with other fittings. These inexpensive fittings are ideal for use in multi storey buildings, and being manufactured from a durable HDPE plastic, means they’re designed to last.
Geberit also offers a range of concealed cisterns and flush buttons for sleek, contemporary bathrooms. With more than 60 million units installed worldwide, designers and users alike can be sure that the Geberit range delivers discreet performance, efficiency, and sustainability in bathrooms of all sizes and designs. The 3 or 4-Star WELS rated cisterns can fit in standard 80mm walls, and are easily accessed for service or repair through the flush plate.
Alongside their suite of reliable, long-lasting plumbing and sanitary solutions, Geberit offers support and expertise at all phases of the project, offering an exceptional level of design support and detail drawings. Readily available BIM data and easy integration with Revit makes specifying and designing with Geberit products easy at any scale.
