Project Description


Barclaycard, Kirkby

As part of a continuing rollout of Propelair technology across the Barclays portfolio, 27 toilets have been installed following the success of a 19-day trial at the Barclaycard Call Centre premises in Kirkby, a high occupancy site – as well as two additional Barclays premises surveyed.

As well as significant improvements in resource efficiency, Propelair is one of the most hygienic toilets available and its design is a significant step change compared to conventional toilets, with better performance, quicker flush and a simple maintenance process, making it the suitable choice for the demands of this high usage site.

The installation of 27 Propelair toilets has saved Barclays 2,062,228 litres of water annually, which has led to a saving in water bills of £5,939.
