Waterless urinal - AVIVA Stadium - Case Study - waterless solutions

Project Background

Lansdowne Road, a 50,000 seater stadium in Dublin, wanted to adopt green design principles that overcame problems with conventional plumbing systems, whilst tackling the common problems associated with standard urinals.


Conventional urinals that experience heavy usage tend to suffer from the same problems: flooding, bad odours, regular blockages, vandalism and high water and energy usage. This combined with the lack of water capacity usually required to flush WC’s and Urinals at intervals.

The Solution:

The Stadium’s design team searched the market to find a urinal product


Design Criteria

The design of the urinal bowl needed to be in keeping with the premium sanitaryware in the hospitality areas. From a selection process of 18 different products Twyford /WhiffAway’s bespoke offering was the preferred option.



The urinal total access for maintenance purposes, whilst delivering the importance of design. The complete solution
from Twyford/WhiffAway was the only system to have total access from the top, bottom and back of the bowl.



The system needed to overcome odours reduce blockages, improve hygiene and be completely non- hazardous to users. Having conducted trials, the Twyford /WhiffAway solution was the only system that delivered these benefits. Other systems using water, oils, sealing fluids, enzymes and traps were unsatisfactory.


Ongoing support

As a public environment, the stadium’s Management Team wanted the assurances of ongoing service support and continuity of supply. Using our Partner WhiffAway with their worldwide service delivery and quality ceramic manufacture of Twyford, the client felt comfortable to choose our partnership system and Nationwide Network of service engineers.
