Not only is Coors Field home to Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies, but the 50,398-seat venue also hosts a full lineup of summer concerts and events when the Rockies are on the road.
With so much wear and tear from so many events, the Coors Field facilities team is constantly striving to keep the stadium looking just like it did on Opening Day over 25 years ago. To begin the 2019 season, the restrooms on the club level and in the clubhouse needed a renovation. For this major project, the facility turned to its partner Sloan for an upgrade.
A Grand Slam for Sustainability
With millions of people going in and out of the stadium each year, durability was a key factor in Coors Field’s restroom specifications. That’s why the facility knew that Sloan urinals and water closets – each equipped with Sloan Royal 111 ESS Sensor Flushometers – were the right fit for the renovation. Sloan’s ST-2459-STG elongated wall-mounted water closets (78 in total) and SU-7009-STG washdown urinals (42) provide both the club level and clubhouse with fixtures that achieve a sustainable 1.28 gallon per flush (gpf) and 0.125-0.5 gpf, respectively. Not only do Sloan’s flushometers promote water savings, but the touch-free products maintain a more sanitary environment for players and fans alike.
During a trial run in high-traffic areas of Coors Field the previous season, the hands-free feature and durability of the BASYS Faucets stood out to the facilities team. Additionally, it was the faucets’ aesthetic appeal that set them apart from the competition. Coors Field specified 12 Sloan Designer Series DSWD-84000 Sinks accompanied by 42 BASYS Faucets throughout the club level. With the Rockies’ logo engraved on each product, Sloan’s faucets now extend the team’s brand into the restroom. The branded faucets greet club level guests with a unique aesthetic. The result is a restroom experience which promotes the Rockies’ brand, even when fans are away from their seats.
“The durability and water savings of Sloan products have been a major boost for the ballpark,” says Allyson Gutierrez, Coors Field senior director, engineering and facilities. “Sloan’s ability to engrave the Rockies logo on our club level faucets is a great additional benefit and has been very well received by our fans.”
