New Kids' Toilets Save Water, Improve Comfort
Baby Devoro FloWise Toilets from American Standard Meets ADA and Texas Accessibility Standards for Children; Available in Flushometer and Two-Piece Models
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 24, 2012) — Designed to help ease the transition from kids’ potty seats to the real deal, the new round-front FloWise Baby Devoro kids’ toilets from American Standard makes it easier for children to be safe and comfortable in the bathroom, all while reducing water consumption.
Witha maximum height of 12 inches to the top of the seat, the white, vitreous china Baby Devoro toilets meet 2012 Texas Accessibility Standards and 2010 ADA Standards for children ages 3 and 4. The easily accessible, 10-¼ inch low-rim height allows kids to feel more secure, and helps prevent the accidents that can occur when small children try to scramble on top of a standard height toilet, which can be as high 16 inches from the floor.
Designed for public settings plumbed for flush valve usage, the flushometer Baby Devoro toilet provides a gentle stepping stone between a small kid's potty chair and a full-size toilet. The flushometer Baby Devoro toilet can be used with a manual or Selectronic hands-free flush valve at 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf) or 1.6 gpf. At 1.28 gpf, the combination flush valve and Baby Devoro toilet are independently rated to flush as much as 800 grams of solid waste.
Baby Devoro is also available in a two-piece model, well-suited to childcare settings and other commercial applications. Consuming only 1.28 gpf — 20 percent less water than standard 1.6 gpf models — this model meets the stringent requirements for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense-certification that ensures water savings without sacrificing performance. This high efficiency toilet (HET) offers siphonic-action technology to ensure a powerful flush and superior bowl cleaning, every time. Both left and right hand trip lever configurations are available on this two-piece model.
