Project Description

King’s College London

The Great Hall

12 Propelair toilets have been installed in washrooms serving the Great Hall, Maughan Library and Virginia Wolf building at King’s College London’s Strand Campus. The Great Hall is used for a variety of purposes and the washrooms are heavily used on a daily basis. Propelair’s robust design is well-suited to high-usage areas, and the new toilets have provided the University with substantial environmental, financial and hygiene benefits.

“Excellent initiative! Every step towards a more ecological KCL is
worth supporting!”

“Great toilets! It’s important to save water; thanks for being
environmentally aware. Thumbs up.”

“Great idea – it’s very practical and ecological. I hope you put this
system in all the toilets!!”
