Vectair Systems launches new P-Screen triple action urinal screen
Global manufacturer and supplier of hygiene supplies Vectair Systems has launched the first triple action urinal screen - incorporating dual fragrance delivery, an active 'enzyme protected' central core and the ultimate defence against splashback.
P-Screen first addresses fragrance fatigue, the common experience of losing sensitivity to an odour from over exposure, by providing powerful fragrance in two areas - the screen itself and the central core.
A citrus-scented central core is complemented by three different fragrance choices: either Marine Musk, Linen Breeze or Citrus Mango.
Dual fragrance is continually released for up to 60 days, and larger spaces can choose to co-ordinate scents with other Vectair Systems' products to harmonise the environment.
Secondly, its active central core provides impressive enzyme protection, containing naturally occurring bacteria that degrade organic matter, eliminating bad smells. This also reduces organic scale build-up by ensuring that uric salt is made more soluble, broken down and is therefore easier to flush away.
The naturally occurring bacteria in P-Screen conforms to many European standards including Directive 2001/18/EC and the Group 1 Directive 2000/54/EC for the release of organisms.
Thirdly, its powerful ability to prevent splashback comes from a smart design combination of bubbles and bristles. Splashback is a common problem in men's urinals, with unwanted amounts of urine often ending up on the floor. Bristles and bubbles help to reduce splashback by creating a surface upon which water cannot easily bounce, which prevents rebound.
The P-Screen design is protected with a registered design mark so it is truly one of a kind.
The urinal screen has been built to be flexible, using interlacing strips of EVA material to form a strong but bendable lattice. This means it comfortably fits most urinal shapes and sizes.
It also has outstanding environmental credentials - it is 100% recyclable and VOC exempt.
P-Screen is also an effective preventative measure to ensure that debris that could block the urinal, such as cigarettes, chewing gum and paper, is caught - preventing the build-up that could otherwise lead to costly maintenance and unsightly washrooms.
A slightly raised grip pad means P-Screen can be easily lifted from the urinal by service personnel and replaced once the 60 days are up.
"With P-Screen, we've joined together a whole host of features to create one ultimate urinal solution," explains Paul Wonnacott, managing director at Vectair Systems. "This combination of a well-designed, fragrant and flexible screen, with an active central core, really does present a unique solution and can provide supreme protection to urinals in any setting, all over the world."
