The seventh annual Plumbing and Fire Industry Awards (PFIA) were held Friday 10 March 2023 at Crown Palladium.
With more businesses returning to the office, there has been an increase in the specification of pumps as an alternative solution for office space re-fits and re-purposing. Instead of using traditional plumbing for office wet area renovations and additions, grey water pumps are being chosen as the selected solution as they bypass the need to disrupt neighbouring tenants while still achieving the wet areas in the desired locations.
To further enhance their existing ability to make these wet areas possible and with less disruptions, Saniflo SFA recently introduced a new product, the Sanialarm Interlock, which safeguards against flooding in the event of a power failure, and is conveniently designed to be used with most Saniflo products.
The Sanialarm Interlock was developed in response to the increased specification of pumps for commercial office space re-purposing, and the need to safeguard against flooding in the event of a power failure. Saniflo SFA has developed the Sanialarm Interlock as a complete “plug and play” alarm interlock package that doesn’t require an electrician for installation, making it a simple yet valuable solution.
The Sanialarm has 3 key functions - It sets off an audible alarm in the event of a high level issue, simultaneously shuts off incoming water supply to prevent flooding, all whilst cutting the power supply to the dishwasher or washing machine.
The Sanialarm interlock is ideal for commercial office kitchenettes to safeguard against flooding. The unit comes with a visual alarm, as well as a 100 decibel audio alarm. It’s simple to use and a perfect solution due to its plug and play connectivity. It comes complete with a magnetic finger float switch, as well as the plug and play connection, which simply plugs into the bottom of the control panel. It also comes with the low voltage solenoid, which is a 12 volt pulse latch. The beauty of the pulse latch technology is that you don’t get burn out of the solenoid. Some other manufacturers use 240 volt, which is where you can get burnout overtime.
In the event of a high level alarm fault, the Sanialarm Interlock locks the power out to the dishwasher and the water supply, meaning you can’t get flooding, which protects commercial office spaces.
Saniflo SFA’s suite of products has been a popular option for commercial office wet area fit-outs for a long time, and the addition of the Sanialarm Interlock provides an added level of security and comfort that businesses are getting the best solution possible.
