McDonalds Case Study

McDonald’s Canterbury

9 Propelair units have been installed at McDonald’s St George’s Street, which serves the Whitefriars Shopping Centre in Canterbury. It is open 24 hours and its washrooms are heavily used, so Propelair’s robust design and potential for water saving offered significant appeal. The new toilets have provided the restaurant with substantial environmental and financial benefits.

“The Propelair toilets are very good, and customers have found them easy to use. We value the water savings they provide, and although the technology differs to that of a conventional toilet Propelair have provided our maintenance team with a ‘masterclass’, demonstrating that any technical issues are actually very straightforward to fix.”
