School Wash Troughs In Solid Surface
At School-Toilets.co.uk, we’re renowned for our range of solid surface school wash troughs. Solid surface - otherwise known as resin or composite material - is a man-made material composed of naturally occurring pigments and minerals set in an acrylic polymer resin. This results in a tough, low-maintenance finish and allows for clean, modern lines and near-invisible joins. Solid surface also has natural non-porous and mould-inhibiting properties that make it ideal for washroom applications.
Our solid surface wash troughs are constructed from Hi-Macs®, which offers superb quality at an excellent price, making our sinks superior to other solid surface products on the market. It’s also completely renewable and can be recycled once it has reached the end of its lifespan, minimising your carbon footprint. We also offer resin wash troughs made in Corian solid surface material. Manufactured by DuPont, Corian wash troughs were the first solid surface material troughs on the market, and offer many of the same benefits as Hi-Macs®.
The versatility of solid surface material means that it can be formed into a variety of shapes; as a result, we offer a range of unique designs, including modular, designer and incline units. When it comes to installation, we offer both wall-mounted solid surface wash troughs, and sit-on solid surface wash troughs, which can be fixed to an existing vanity unit.

Wash Troughs in Schools Guidance
Solid surface wash troughs aren’t just a stylish and cost-effective alternative to traditional hand wash basins; they have also been recommended for use in schools by the Department for Education.
The Toilets in School guidance, which was issued by the Department for Education (then known as the Department for Education and Skills) in 2007, states that wash troughs are preferable to hand wash basins in a school setting because they are more easily monitored by staff, which can help cut down on bullying and harassment. They were also praised for being more visually pleasing and easier to maintain and clean.
The fact that a multi-user wash trough requires the same amount of plumbing as an individual wash basin means that they are also cheaper and easier to install, making them a cost-effective choice for any nursery, school, sixth form or college.
