Wirquin has won the Innovation Award for the third time at the KBB Show at the NEC in Birmingham.
In 2014 the company won the award for its Macdee Motion all-in-one universal dual flush siphon, in 2016 its QuickFit Flush Valve which offers a time saving solution to the busy plumber and in 2018 its Nano 6.7 two-in-one basin trap and waste innovation. The company says the award is a great compliment considering the breadth of competition at the national Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom show.
Nano 6.7, launched at the show in 2016, has been really well received by the industry, says Wirquin. It is a basin waste and trap solution that combines space gain, quick assembly and cleaning from the top. It is three times smaller than a classic waste, only 6.7cm in height, freeing up valuable space under the basin, while incorporating the latest waterless silicone membrane technology for traps.
“We are delighted that the judges recognised the innovation we include in our products,” said Nick Richards, Commercial Director for Wirquin. “Wirquin products are technically engineered pieces of equipment that, whilst often hidden, provide an important function in the bathroom. Innovation is in the DNA of our business, it’s what makes us different and awards like this reassure us that our hard work is recognised.”
At the KBB Show this year Wirquin launched three more new products. Wirquin Neo, a new generation in bottle traps; One, a fully automatic flushing valve and Initio, a compact wall hung WC frame.
