“Optimisation is for processes, innovation is for people.” That is why the new Universale Plus basement drain from KESSEL AG offers more advantages, less hassle plus an extra measure of innovation compared to conventional products. The aim of the development was to simplify the drainage of basements from installation to maintenance: Fewer steps and therefore less work and less material use simultaneously lead to lower costs throughout the entire product life cycle. For the first time, the company is focusing primarily on the use of resource-friendly recycled material for the sake of the environment.
Simply thought out
The drain body has a vertical outlet – optionally with a backwater valve according to DIN 13564, Type 5 and an integrated odour trap. Due to this design, the backwater unit and the inlet to the main drainage pipe are no longer installed deep under the floor slab, but rather in it. In combination with a clear pipe cross-section, they remain completely accessible, making maintenance and cleaning work on the main drainage pipe considerably easier.
Three inlets for connecting a shower, washbasin and washing machine are integrated into its rotatable extension section. Using this method, the inlets are located above the floor slab for the first time with the Universale Plus. The slab only needs to be penetrated once. It also allows for a clear separation of the trades between the building shell (drain body) and the plumbing (extension and upper section).
The all-rounder offers a variety of uses in residential and non-residential buildings. This also includes a selection of upper sections: stainless steel, polymer or Ecoguss recyclable composite material. All variants are rotatable, tiltable, height-adjustable and durable. Designers can always adapt the product precisely to the individual installation situation.
