Sloan Provides Touch-Free Commercial Restroom Products to Aid in COVID-19 Relief Efforts

May 1, 2020

 Sloan, a manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems, has provided its touch-free restroom products to support the conversion of Chicago’s renowned McCormick Place Convention Center and Yale University’s Payne Whitney Gym into temporary field hospitals—or COVID-19 Care Centers—due to the overflow of patients suffering from COVID-19.

“At Sloan, we understand that the touch-free products we manufacture across the entire commercial restroom play an essential role in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Graham Allen, Sloan co-president and CEO. “We are proud to support those in our backyard of Chicago, Yale University, and anyone in need across the country, and we will continue to do everything in our power to supply sensor-operated products.”

With 500 beds in makeshift rooms, plumbing requirements at McCormick Place called for over 200 Sloan sensor faucets in handwashing stations, and Sloan partnered with local customers to deliver these hygiene-friendly solutions. The Army Corps of Engineers plans to build an additional 2,500 beds throughout the facility’s 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space in the coming weeks.

Yale’s Payne Whitney Gym was also converted to a temporary field hospital and needed to retrofit its existing manual faucets and flushometers to provide a more sanitary environment for the influx of patients. The facility removed its existing faucets and replaced them with Sloan sensor-operated faucets, while also installing new Sloan sensor flushometers to provide a touch-free experience.

Deemed an essential business, Sloan plant employees continue to manufacture products for critical facilities across the world. As Sloan works to fill these orders and provide donations, the health and safety of the company’s employees, customers, and partners remains of the utmost importance.
