Cistermiser’s new look IRC infrared urinal flushing control valve

Cistermiser has updated its market-leading IRC infrared urinal flushing control valve, with improved aesthetics and an array of practical new design features.

The IRC employs motion-sensing infrared to automatically control the flushing of cistern-fed urinals, minimise water wastage and ensure compliance with Water Regulations. The PIR sensor detects movement and activates the solenoid valve, allowing water into the cistern.

Incorporating the same proven and robust brass valve, new IRC design features include a stylish and compact body shape, an “economy” mode option to provide even greater water savings, a new-style mounting bracket for recessed installations and an improved design, which allows clients to replace batteries with ease by simply removing the front fascia to access the battery compartment.

The success of the IRC is due in no small part to its design flexibility. Battery or mains-powered, the IRC can use batteries as back-up power to mains supply if required. The sensor can be pipe, wall or ceiling mounted, surface-mounted or recessed to conceal the unit and reduce the risk of vandalism.

The IRC reduces water consumption by over 80% and is ready to install straight out of the box.
