Quarterback


  • Leg design - provides easy front access to the faceplate’s securing bolts, allowing easy height adjustments.
  • All roughing is done - on the floor and not in the ceiling, no scaffolding, ladders or similar supports are required.
  • Better working conditions - installer works on the floor not in the ceiling saving time since working conditions are more favorable.
  • Rough-in piping is on the floor - so dropped ceilings are not required. This enables building ceiling height to be lower, effectively saving overall construction costs.

"The Quarterback provides a fifty percent labor savings because it's quicker to build and assemble and it's more adjustable."

Labor Saver

  • Designed to speed up the installation process by using a one-piece, pre-assembled rigid steel frame construction.
  • Labor Savor’s® innovative design allows for installation in narrow wall and metal stud configurations
  • Fixture support features both horizontal and vertical adjustability to fit varying installation conditions.

Siphonic

  • No pitch is required -  thus interior overhead space can be reduced; building height may be reduced saving on construction costs.
  • Below slab installation - costs are reduced due to fewer points of discharge.
  • Smaller and lighter pipe diameters/pipe hangers - reduce material and labor costs.
  • The lack of drainage piping pitch provides for maximum use of interior open space.
  • Higher velocities promote self-cleaning.

The choice to go [with a siphonic system] was probably one of the most prudent choices I’ve seen made in a while. It doesn’t take up a whole lot of space. You’re talking about cutting costs considerably for not any more work really.

  • Simplicity. Roof penetrations are square, not round, saving time

Top Mount Drain Elevator

  • Drain Elevator is outside of the waterway, eliminating leaks.
  • Top mount reversible collar eliminates the need for a conventional extension, underdeck clamp and sump receiver saving material and labor cost.

Downspout

  • Bronze Nozzle and Flange has no sharp edges like other materials and available in threaded and no-hub.
  • Nozzle design diverts water away from building, eliminating wall stains.
  • Wall flange covers rough opening and blends aesthetically with the outside of the building.

Jubilee floor drain
