Creative Alternative for Sensor Taps

We love finding our products in some of the most interesting places in New Zealand…and this one blew us away!

Sitting pride of place in the privately-owned museum is a retired 130 tonne Super Dozer… one of only two left in NZ.  The hugely impressive Dozer is surrounded by its fellow antiquated work-horses; several vintage fire engines, bulldozers, pick-up trucks (to name a few)…as well as a purpose built ‘old school’ themed garage full of vintage tools.

Enter the bathroom through rusty ‘pick-up-truck’ doors, where a variety of car parts have been repurposed as bathroom fittings.  In the gents, the room is lit by a set of headlights mounted on the wall, the urinals are mounted inside large oil sumps and the cisterns are made from old jerry cans.  The ladies toilets have a hand wash basin made from a car gearbox.  

The bit that excited us the most was an old petrol pump, which has been converted into a hand wash basin by combining parts from an SPL Sensor Tap.

If you have a project that requires sensor operated taps, we can offer advice and expertise…email us at admin@splwashrooms.co.nz or click here to learn more
