Bar Maid Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of five brush Electric Glass Washers and bar supplies, announces the addition of the Floor Drain Trap Seal to its line of FLY-BYE products.
Quickly and easily installed in your floor drain, the FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal is a one-way valve that allows liquid and solids to drain, then closes when there is no flow to prevent migration of odors, harmful and potentially flammable gases, insects and liquid backflow up through the floor drain grate.
Fruit flies, cockroaches and other insects are not just a nuisance… they are a major sanitation issue for bars and restaurants. Fruit flies and many other insects feed and breed in floor drains, thriving in that damp environment where organic residues build up and act as an attractant. Bacteria and viruses also flourish in the slimy biofilm of damp drains. Insects that crawl out of the drain into the living or workspace may be couriers of those pathogens. The FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal prevents insect infiltration and the potentially fatal cross contamination and infection spread possible from unprotected drains.
The reversing airflow of unprotected floor drains can also pose a health hazard, allowing the aerosolization of pathogens and migration of not only foul odors, but also harmful and potentially flammable gases out of the drain. The FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal acts as a vapor barrier to help prevent gases such as methane, hydrogen sulfide and radon from infiltrating the living or workspace, improving indoor air quality. It also prevents evaporation, eliminating the need for adding primers and fresh water to the drain.
“This is a huge problem solver for so many establishments!” says George Shepherd, owner and President of Bar Maid Corporation. “The Drain Trap Seal saves time and money while instantly relieving the symptoms of a problematic drain.”
The FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal is installed in the outlet connection of the floor drain body, or inside the top of a floor drain strainer. What makes it so effective is its patented 3-part design that opens to allow drainage and closes when there is no flow. The outer anchor has four flexible silicone ribs that seal the unit inside the drain and ensure easy installation into openings that may have variations in size. Liquids and solids pass through the inside of the durable, UV resistant ABS plastic housing, where the flexible silicone skirt opens to allow them down the drain. The silicone skirt then closes to achieve a seal the locks out pests, gases and liquid backflow.
Four sizes available to fit most drains, it is for use in either new construction or retrofit applications where trap primers were never installed. Tested and certified to the ASSE 1072 Standard and listed with IAPMO and I.C.C. It aids LEED certification.
“The FLY-BYE line is really a group of products that, along with good sanitation practices, work together to combat the reproduction of fruit flies,” Shepherd explained. “The last thing you want are customers bedeviled and swatting at buzzing fruit flies while sitting in your bar or restaurant.” Learn more about the FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal and the entire line of FLY-BYE products at at BestInTheBar.com.
