Those interested in visiting a Sloan showroom in certain locations have the opportunity to check out the commercial restroom product manufacturer’s latest innovations and designs through a new experience: the Sloan Mobile Showroom.

Sloan created a custom-built 38-foot trailer that allows the company to engage at the local level with architects, designers, engineers and more. 

Jeff Gilmore, Sloan’s director of strategic accounts, says the layout can comfortably accommodate 15 people inside at any given time.

“One of the key benefits [of the mobile showroom] is the ability to display the products in an impactful way, so our target audience can get a better feel for what the products actually look like installed and experience the products in a controlled but working environment,” he says.

“This is increasingly more important as aesthetic design, water and energy efficiency, and wellness continue to evolve the needs and trends in the commercial restroom space.”

The mobile showroom features more than 60 of Sloan’s newest products on display, including:

  • Three working sink designs
  • Functioning toilets and urinals
  • New special finishes for faucets
  • Soap dispensers and flushometers
  • Sloan’s new virtual reality (VR) experience tool

Visitors can customize their restroom firsthand by selecting from a virtual catalog of over 150 Sloan products as well as materials and custom finishes.
