We also have a comprehensive range of heavy duty accessories and WCs, which are made from 2mm thick stainless steel and are ideal where vanadalism is a high risk, such as in public toilets and motorway rest areas, prisons and police stations. 

Why Choose Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is not only resistant to moisture and most acids, it also stands out due to its hardness, high tolerance of heat and cold, and hygienic characteristics which makes it the first choice for hospitals and food processing plants. Dirt and oil can easily be washed from the smooth, pore-free surface without the need for harsh cleaning products and scratches and grooves on covers lose their sharp edges quickly and blend in to the surface.

Lan Services were keen to use supplier and trusted brand Franke for their stainless steel toilet pans, urinal troughs and vanity tops with integral moulded basins.

They are flexible with our customers’ requirements and provide great service both pre and post installation. We also have peace of mind that products will be durable and last for years to come.”



Ravenhill Stadium chooses Franke Urinals and Washtroughs - Northern Ireland

Franke Sissons made a major contribution in assisting Harvey Group deliver the three new stands on time and to a very high standard. The input of their design department through to the quality of the final product was top notch.”

Football Arena Danzig

Transparency, lightness and amber-coloured lighting - these are the properties that characterise the identity of the new football arena with which Danzig continues its famous city history. The arena is the flagship of the successful bid by Poland for the European Football Championship in 2012. Like pieces of amber, the stadium, shopping facilities; and a hotel make up a formation as can be found on a beach. The envelope of the arena is made up of various coloured modules which create a fascinating homogeneous colour sequence. Looking upwards, they grow increasingly transparent and keep the playing field virtually free of shadow. The sports arena was designed by the well-known Düsseldorf architect*s office RKW Rhode | Kellermann | Wawrowsky.
