The London Eye

Robust, water resistant and easy to clean and maintain.

Vepps IPS panelling & Solid Surface washtroughs


The project.

At 443 feet tall and 390 feet in diameter, The London Eye is Europe’s tallest Ferris wheel. Situated on the South Bank of the River Thames, it offers the second-highest viewing point in London and is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the UK with over 3.5 million views annually.


The challenge.

With this in mind, The London Eye required sturdy visitor facilities to withstand the busy traffic.

High footfall washrooms such as those at The London Eye are prone to heavy usage. As such, waterproof washroom solutions would be required to ensure the new systems could withstand the demands of the new facilities.

It was also a requirement for the new toilet facilities at The London Eye to be easy to clean and maintain, ensuring the highest levels of cleanliness would be met at all times.


The solution.

To accommodate this, Venesta Washroom's Equinox toilet cubicles were specified along with Solid Surface wash trough vanity units and Vepps Solid Grade Laminate (SGL) urinal duct panels.

Our Equinox cubicle range is built to last. Manufactured from anti-vandal Solid Grade Laminate with a strong and sturdy elliptical aluminium headrail, it gives a cutting edge look but with rock-solid integrity.

Equinox also features very discreet anti-tamper fixings, another example of the attention to detail we pay when designing our cubicle ranges. We know that strength doesn’t have to compromise style.

Solid surface wash troughs with lockable SGL underpanels provided the perfect solution for the hand wash area. Aside from its obvious stylish features, Solid Surface is a material manufactured for longevity. It stands up to all amounts of wear, is totally impervious to water and is also very easily repairable should any damage be caused by visitors.

The London Eye specified our ground-breaking pre-plumbed washroom panelling system, Vepps, for their new washroom facilities. Vepps is the industry's first precision-engineered pre-plumbed panelling system with a click-fix assembly into an aluminium frame. This IPS solution offered The London Eye speedy installation as well as easy ongoing maintenance thanks to the 90 degree opening access panels which conceal duct space.

With a sturdy reputation to uphold and a steady flow of traffic to facilitate, the Venesta team was proud to be part of such a significant project, helping to ensure the best possible customer experience, even when visiting the washroom.
