Meet environmental goals for your building and
By replacing the toilets in your organisation with Propelair’s water-efficient toilet, your washrooms will be more hygienic and typically save 84% water and 60% on your bills.
Toilet flushing can account for up to 48% of water consumption in commercial buildings. Changing your toilets to a more efficient technology can really pay dividends when seeking to save water and energy.
Uses up to 84% less water
Propelair uses only 1.5 litres of water per flush, a fraction compared to the UK average of 9 litres. Average flush volumes can be significantly higher than their cistern capacity due to double flushing, leakages and filling while still flushing.
Water is becoming an ever more valuable and costly resource. Propelair is a quick, simple and economic solution to reducing water costs instantly.

*statistics based on a 9 litre average flush
Propelair is one of the most hygienic systems available, creating a cleaner toilet environment for customers, clients, patients and staff, while having a positive impact on health, well-being and productivity.
Eradicated aerosol germs
Propelair reduces aerosolised germs by up to 95%. The germs are trapped inside Propelair’s unique closable lid, and then efficiently removed with its powerful air flush, creating a more hygienic and healthier washroom environment for users.
Thanks to Propelair’s unique closable lid, odours are dramatically reduced.
Protected by SteriTouch®
Antimicrobial additives in the handle help reduce germs.
Conventional toilets can leave 6% of previous users’ contaminants behind after flushing, which can become airborne during frequent flushes. Propelair removes up to 99.9% of contaminants, ensuring less risk of cross-contamination.
Avoid the “sneeze effect”
Flushing a conventional toilet creates a “sneeze effect,” spraying bacteria, viruses and moisture into the air. These airborne aerosols can travel up to 1 metre away from the toilet itself contaminating the surrounding washroom surfaces.
Harmful bacteria can survive up to 24 hours on washroom surfaces making it a perfect breeding ground for viruses and germs to spread. With Propelair, this unhygienic “sneeze effect” is avoided.
Propelair’s design is a significant step change compared to conventional toilets, with better performance, quicker flush and a simple maintenance process.
Combining 1.5 litres of water and displaced air technology creates a powerful, high-performance flush which easily removes all waste with one flush.
Queue time reduced
Propelair quickly refills in up to 30 seconds compared to conventional systems which can take up to 2-3 minutes. An efficient flush saves time and reduces queues, especially during periods of high usage.
Maintenance made easy
Propelair’s rimless pan and side hinges make previously hard-to-clean areas easily accessible, ensuring a thorough cleaning process can be carried out.
Propelair is designed to be strong and durable, making it well suited for heavy use / challenging environments.
How Propelair works…
1. Propelair® has a two-section cistern; one for air and one for water
2. Before Flushing, the lid is closed to form a seal
3. When the flush sensor is activated water enters the pan to wash it, followed by air from the unique patented pump. The air cannot escape due to the sealed lid. This pushes out the entire contents of the pan to give a powerful, reliable flush.
4. The remaining water fills the water trap.
5. The flush is completed in 3 seconds with the toilet ready to be re-flushed in 20-30 seconds. (subject to water supply pressure)
