Worked at home with a Lasko-brand box fan behind me...
Heavy-duty (that's duty, not doody, you sickos) fans mounted
in the walls facing urinals, blowing towards the urinal to
combat splash-back. To save on energy costs, the fans could
be activated/deactivated by the proximity sensor used for
the flush mechanism.
You *might* want to ensure
belt is tucked away so as not
to be dangling when the fan is activated.
Far more non-ineffective.

||Why is it that the urinal subcats are all grouped under
the 'home' category? I mean really, whose home
(besides, possibly, Maxwell's) has a urinal in it? This
really should be in the 'Public' category.
||Given the semi-parabolic shape of most urinals, what's to prevent the impingent airflow being reversed and contributing to splash-back?
|| The vacuum function of airline toilets seems like it would work better.
||Hadn't thought about the airflow being reversed in
such a manner. Hmmm... this will require some
||I worry slightly that the turbulence that a powerful fan might produce would result in an airflow which bounces off the smooth ceramic urinal surface, producing a massive, billowing cloud of urine droplets which will engulf the unwitting
For some reason, perhaps because they both contain fans, I envisage the urinal fan being activated by the hand-dryer, so that as one man goes to dry his hands, the man standing at the urinal is suddenly hit by a powerful wind, before being engulfed in a vortex of airborne urine ("Hey! Don't dry your hands yet!! Aaaagh!!!).
||What hippo said: blow into a bottle.
