Sloan, an U.S. manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems, and ASM Global, which is a global venue management and services company that produces live events, announced a strategic partnership featuring advanced technology and high-efficiency solutions for sustainably designed restrooms.
As ASM Global’s Preferred Commercial Plumbing Systems Partner in North America, Sloan will leverage the newest technological advances in plumbing products and fixtures for restrooms at ASM Global stadiums, arenas, convention centers, theaters, and specialty venues across the country. ASM Global currently manages more than 300 venues worldwide, annually hosting more than 160 million guests across five continents.
“The health and safety of guests at our ASM Global venues worldwide is of paramount concern, and that is especially true in high-traffic areas like restrooms,” said ASM Global Chief Commercial Officer Jason Oberlander. “With its full suite of touch-free, sensor-operated products, Sloan is the ideal partner to align with our award-winning VenueShield protocols and procedures in helping us eliminate germs and bacteria from high-touch surfaces.”
Sloan’s sensor-operated products range from concealed and exposed flushometer options, to a wide range of faucets, soap dispensers, and hand dryers to bring an added element of hygiene and aesthetics to the restroom.
Sloan said that the key benefits of its products include:
-Healthier Venues – Sensor-operated and touch-free products minimize contact with surfaces where germs can breed.
-Advanced Technology – Bluetooth-connected products enable facility managers to wirelessly monitor the health and status of venues in real-time from a smartphone app while helping to lower costs and increase efficiency.
-Sustainability – Sensor technologies maximize water efficiency and LEED goals, saving millions of gallons of water each year.
These benefits are already on display at ASM Global-managed PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, where Sloan faucets and flushometers were installed in the summer of 2020 to provide a more hygiene-friendly environment for players and fans alike.
Sloan Co-President and CEO Graham Allen. “We are proud to be the Preferred Commercial Plumbing Systems Partner of ASM Global to promote healthy restroom hygiene with Sloan products to millions of live event attendees annually.”
In July 2021, ASM Global had announced a strategic alliance with smart buildings specialist Honeywell to help create smarter, safer and more sustainable venue operations across ASM’s international portfolio.
Under the terms of the deal, ASM Global will work with Honeywell to establish new standards related to indoor air quality, safety and regulatory compliance for its VenueShield LIVE proprietary program for venue reopenings and operations. Honeywell will consult with ASM on guidelines related to deploying healthy buildings technology including indoor air quality, safety and security, and personal protective equipment (PPE). Honeywell will also create a custom, real-time Healthy Buildings dashboard for the VenueShield LIVE program to help ASM’s facilities staff quickly identify and correct critical building controls issues.
Additionally, Honeywell will work with the ASM Global venue network to deploy solutions to enhance overall building operations as well as mobile computing and data capture technologies to expedite ticketing, concessions and retail experiences.
