Collections: Curated Products for a Cohesive Restroom Aesthetic
Every architect and designer knows the importance of Chicago in modern architecture. It also happens to be our hometown. So when we developed Sloan Collections to showcase complete product solutions in contemporary environments, it was only natural that we name them after famous Chicago streets.
- The State Street Collection blends classic Chicago charm with modern conveniences for elegant, high-traffic locations.
- The Halsted Street Collection, like its namesake, connects the working-class Pullman neighborhood with Wrigleyville's lively atmosphere.
- The Lake Street Collection brings circular forms and natural tones into accessible harmony with brushed nickel finishes.
- The Hubbard Street Collection combines durability, sophistication, and fluid efficiency like the famous dance company that shares its name.
Sloan Collections make your job easier by pulling together Sloan products that have similar aesthetic qualities and making them available in one simple download.
Markets: Sloan Products Built for the Real World
No matter how brilliant a commercial restroom design is, real-world application means taking into account the needs of everyone who will use the restroom.
Those needs change from building to building, and many Sloan products are perfectly designed for specific types of buildings. Our Markets page bring those products together, so you can design restrooms that maximize performance and savings while minimizing upkeep and waste.
In Markets, you’ll find pages devoted to:
These pages don’t just list products you’ll find essential for your restroom design. They also have links to case studies, and some have CEUs on relevant topics, so you can elevate your expertise on the type of building for which you’re designing that restroom.
Inspiration doesn’t come quickly or easily, but if you’re creating commercial restrooms, we can save you some of that time and effort. Sloan Room Ideas, Collections, and Markets give you the resources you need to take on new challenges—and turn that inspiration into reality!
Since 1906, we’ve led the industry with restroom fixtures built to inspire. Want to know more about the durability, style, and sustainability of our products? Talk to Sloan!
