Taranaki Hospital choose the SPS Vinyl Floor Waste as their choice for Vinyl Floor Waste for their new five floor wing extension.

22 June 2023

Metabronze were asked if the business could provide a vinyl floor waste with the drain body, ring and grate made from 316 Stainless steel, product quality being the primary design objective for the vinyl floor waste that is going to be installed into a sanitary environment.

Metabronze would generally provide a vinyl floor waste with a 304 stainless steel body, combined with a 316 Stainless steel ring and flat grate assembly, the body being fully enclosed within flooring materials. 

The specification of providing an 'all 316' vinyl floor waste, whilst treated as a 'special order', was easy for Metabronze and SPS to fulfil, as we will always try to work with our customers and provide 'real' solutions to unique requirements. 

The 100mm Push-in Sheet Vinyl Floor waste provided by Metabronze is watermarked under ATS5200:040(ref: 20052) has double O-rings adapt the outlet to 100mm PVC, copper, HDPE, or cast-iron pipe, and boasts a 5mm high-heel friendly grate pattern. 

This project is different from most new construction projects, with the Developer choosing to take stock of all (over 200 vinyl floor wastes) prior to the completion of the floors, their rationale for purchasing the vinyl floor wastes 'up front' was to avoid the inflationary price increases that have been burdening the construction industry of late.

To gain a better understanding of the current and future needs of this project, we chose to have senior management personally deliver the SPS 100mm Push-in sheet vinyl floor waste products to the New Plymouth Storage Facility, viewing the Hospital site and speaking to key on-site stake holders. 

In general, depending on your functional needs and budge the SPS vinyl floor waste can be provided with materials, 304 & 316 Stainless Steel, ABS, and chrome-plated brass. For certain models, the materials for the vinyl floor waste are inter-changable. 

The vinyl floor waste with heal friendly designs, twin O-rings, and universal fin-seal connectors, as an addition, demonstrates our versatility and willingness to assist with the installation as well as assist with maintaining safety.  

The SPS vinyl floor waste is an original design that is simple, functional, long lasting, and with a choice of several materials for ring, grate and body for the floor waste, is also cost-effective. 


Depending on your functional needs and budget, there is a choice of materials with 304, 316 Stainless steel , ABS, chrome plated zinc alloy, and cast iron. For certain models, the materials are inter-changable. 

Heal friendly grate designs, twin O-rings and Universal Fin-Seal connectors shows that we are looking to fully satisfy the Drain Installer as well as the End User.
