Urinal screens go a long way towards keeping restrooms more sanitary. Not only are they generally designed to reduce splash-back and ingrained with a pleasant scent, but many feature enzymes or beneficial bacteria that work to actively disinfect urinals.
Since most people dread bathroom maintenance, the Diversey EKS-4O-12 scored a high ranking. Whereas most others only last 30 days or so, these continue to release their fragrance for up to 60 days. Made by the same company, the Diversey Power PWR-3B-10 are another decent option. They may not last two months, but they do have a fun starfish-like shape that might just entice children to try and aim a little harder.
Though pricey, the T Market Splash Hog is a smart choice for keeping bathrooms sanitary between cleanings. Unlike most others that only cover the drain, these run up the back wall too, which means that even if a person isn't aiming down at the drain, there is a good chance these will catch the stream and prevent splatter.
While all of our selections offer some fragrance to mask unwanted odors, we realize that for many businesses, something with an enzyme block may be the best option. For those situations, we have included the AirWorks AWSP234 and Big D Extra Duty 691. Both of these can be used in all 50 states and will continuously clean a urinal every time it is flushed, so it might require a little less scrubbing with the brush.
Because the effectiveness of these scented urinal screens fades with time, it is important to keep track of when they were last changed. To make this easy, the Nilodor Ultra-AS, Fresh Urinal Screens Wave 2.0, and Fresh Products 3D Wave all feature date tabs that you break off before installing them. This way, you can tell at just a glance when it is time to throw them out and start with a new one.

Nobody enjoys using a bathroom with a funky odor, and while we'd like to think every public bathroom is thoroughly scrubbed and sanitized every single day, this often isn't true, especially in smaller businesses where cleaning crews may only come once a week. Luckily, these urinal screens can help you easily maintain a cleaner and better-smelling bathroom. If you have a high-volume restroom, or simply dread anything having to do with bathroom sanitation, then you should definitely take a look at the Diversey EKS-4O-12 and Fresh Urinal Screens WAVE 2.0, as these can both last up to two months before the fragrance begins to fade. The extremely potent Big D Extra Duty is also a good choice for high-volume urinals. If you are worried many of your patrons won't aim for the bottom of the pissoir, the T Market Splash Hog has you covered, since it covers the majority of the backside too, effectively eliminating almost all splash-back. The Splash Shield is extremely budget-friendly, so if you run on slim profit margins, these can help you conserve every penny, while options like the Nilodor Ultra-AS, Fresh Urinal Screens WAVE 2.0, and Fresh Products 3D Wave feature little tabs that indicate the date they need to be changed, so you never replace them too early or too late.
