Sloan Products Deliver Hygiene and Wellness Solutions to Fulton East

June 26, 2020

 Sloan, a manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems, and its integrated lineup of touch-free products are part of Chicago’s new Fulton East office and retail building. Fulton East is the nation’s first next-generation office building designed to specifically address employee health, safety, and wellness in the post-COVID-19 business environment.
The 90,000 square-foot building located in Chicago’s Fulton Market District includes a number of leading-edge products. In addition to Sloan touch-free solar-powered faucets, soap dispensers, flushometers, and SloanTec® Hydrophobic Glaze for vitreous china fixtures, Fulton East is the world’s first new construction building to be equipped with Mad Elevator Inc’s Toe-To-Go hands-free elevator system. Fulton East is also the first multi-story office building to employ airPHX, non-thermal plasma technology throughout the entire building to help reduce cross-contamination risks and provide employees with cleaner air and work surfaces.

The project specified Sloan’s vitreous china Designer Urinal and wall-mounted water closet, each paired with a Sloan SOLIS® solar-powered and sensor-operated flushometer to deliver an energy-efficient and clean flush complemented by touch-free technology.

Sloan’s vitreous china undermount lavatory with Optima® solar-powered deck-mounted faucets and matching soap dispenser provide a hygienic handwashing solution. Each Sloan vitreous china fixture features SloanTec Hydrophobic Glaze, a proprietary water-repellant glaze that inhibits the growth of germs and bacteria to make the fixtures easier to clean.

The building also includes a comprehensive set of other health, safety, and wellness enhancements, such as touch-free thermal scanning at the lobby security desk, continuous floor-to-ceiling low-E glass to provide the maximum amount of light into the building, and much more. All restrooms were constructed with one additional fixture than required by Chicago city code to help enhance social distancing measures.

Architectural firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative (LJC) collaborated with Chicago-based design-build firm, Clayco, on the project. Interior designer Holly Hunt designed the Fulton East lobby.
