The Choice is Yours: Digital Actuator Showroom by Geberit

Time and time again, the message is clear from designers: "Give me choices in my designs; help me show my client what's possible in terms of colors, style, and features; provide me with inspiration!" To that end, Geberit has developed a digital actuator showroom at www.geberitnorthamerica.com/digital_showroom. Available starting today, this new web tool contains a catalog of Geberit flush actuator plates, where with a few simple clicks or taps anyone can:

  • Filter flush plate choices by color, shape, style, or function -- choose just the right product for the design

  • Visualize the real world look with wall customization -- see how the plate style, color, and finish look against various backgrounds 

  • Get inspired -- see images of bathrooms with Geberit in-wall systems installed, including actuator plate details and a link to additional information

  • Have fun -- try out the examples from the custom series Sigma50, Sigma21, and Sigma70

  • Easily bundle and communicate the choice -- create, save, or print a data sheet for any plate, then share it with a designer or client!

Test drive and promote the new tool to your showroom, design, and architect contacts at:

New Square Snap-in Strainer for 821 Series Shower Drain by Sioux Chief

Sioux Chief introduces the newest addition to their family of 821 Series shower pan drains. A square version of the popular snap-in stainless steel strainer is now available.

The new strainer is made from the same polished, 19-gauge, 430 stainless steel material as the round version, and shares the same grid pattern. However, the new square strainer models will utilize a square-top gray ABS head, which will provide load support and a thin, integral grout rim.

This new drain option offers customers a compromise between the round, stamped strainer and the premium, square, cast metal ring/strainer models.

As with all the other 821 Series items with stamped stainless steel strainers, these new models will use the large-diameter drain body.

Plain End Fittings Now Available for GB Indoor Units

Schier’s GB indoor grease interceptors are now provided standard with plain-end fittings for connection with a rubber coupling (by others).

Background
The GB Indoor models were launched last summer with the industry first feature of “multiple pipe sizes” provided standard. We believed the best way to offer that was with a standard 4" FPT connection and fitting options of 4x3 and 3x2. While plumbers and wholesalers loved the versatility of multiple connections, they preferred plain-end instead of FPT. In response, we designed proprietary Schier-branded plain-end x MPT adapters to replace the female adapters. These new adapters thread into each unit, and will be provided with each unit in the same sizes as the female adapters were offered (except for the GB3 - see table below).

This will be a running change that will begin October 22nd 2018. In addition, both the “old” FPT adapters and the new MPT adapters will be available for sale separately (see website).
