Kohler Enters the Waterless Urinal Market

Kohler’s Steward™ and Steward S urinals are the end-product of a two-year development cycle in which the company essentially reinvented the urinal, according to Shane Judd, product manager for toilets and commercial products at Kohler. “We started by asking ‘how would you make the best urinal possible?’,” recounted Judd. They identified splash as the biggest problem with today’s urinals and realized that a conical bowl is the best shape to prevent splash—but that you can’t have a conical bowl with a flush urinal. “We completely redesigned the shape,” Judd told
