A rimless toilet does not have a brim at its edge, from which the water usually flows when you flush. Instead of flowing from the top, such toilets shoot water towards its edge and around it, allowing no missing spots with filth remaining after a flush. These toilets also remove any spaces for germs to hide and breed, providing a hygienic alternative for your bathroom.
It is a compound of glass and silica-based materials applied as a coat on porcelain products such as WC pans, urinals, baths and basins to protect them from scratches and stains as an anti-vandal measure.
When the pan has piping at the back, inside the wall, it is called a horizontal outlet toilet or pan. As the cisterns are concealed or placed against the wall, most plumbing is hidden out of sight.
It is a toilet where the plumbing exits through the floor. Such toilets should be placed a few inches higher than the rest of the floor to compensate for the plumbing.
A washdown toilet uses the weight of the water and gravity to push out the toilet waste from the toilet bowl. The washdown toilet is designed with a short and wide trapway, so that waste can quickly enter the trapway using just the force of water from the tank. A washdown model includes a push-button flush and has a skirted design with a smaller water surface area and a short trapway and can easily handle heavy loads without getting clogged.
A toilet with a flushing mechanism with two different buttons for flushing solid and liquid waste, thereby saving water.
Soft-closing seats are a new alternative to classic toilet seats. Their modern design allows them to close slowly, while their controlled manner of closing does not require you to assist them. It also shuts automatically, allowing it to come down at a pace that does not make much noise.
Stainless Steel Material
Stainless Steel is an iron alloy with anti-rust and anti-corrosive properties, unlike iron. It contains a minimum of 10.5% of chromium and less than 1.2% of carbon and other metal alloys. Its corrosion resistance and mechanical properties can be improved by adding nickel, molybdenum, titanium, niobium, or manganese. This robust, hygienic, hard-wearing base material is popular in the construction of steel products.
Easy Fit Installation
The product is designed for fast and easy installation.
KIWA is a universally accepted Dutch approval standard at par with German DVGW, Austrian OVGW, Swiss SVGW, and French NF approval systems. The KIWA approval means that the products meet a high-quality standard for portable water and gas-related products.
With / Without Overflow
An overflow is a small hole or opening at the upper part of a sink, basin, bidet or tub that drains away water upon reaching its level so that no water is spilt. When a basin or bath does not come with this design feature, it is called “without overflow” and will need a compatible drain.
Also called the Push button or Sprung waste, this waste needs a push down on the stopper to close and a click to open it back again. It is the most commonly used waste due to the ease of its operation.
Rigid Furniture - Pre-Assembled
Rigid or pre-assembled furniture is any bathroom unit that is ready to install. These arrive entirely constructed with pre-drilled holes and labelled parts making the furniture installation process quick and easy. It helps you save money on labour, and you get a higher-quality product. These are also an excellent choice for anyone looking for a new storage unit that fits their bathroom decor.
WRAS Approved Product
WRAS Approval means that the particular water fitting or product complies with or meets the requirements specified by the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations or Scottish Byelaws. Such compliance is based on certain tests that prove that the product or fitting does not cause waste, misuse, contamination or undue consumption of the public water supply system in the UK.
Ceramic Disc Cartridge
It has two ceramic discs, one fixed in place and the other moveable with the tap or valve handle. It is the most common technology used in modern tapware as it offers unmatched advantages such as no leaks and drips and saves on water and money.
As the name suggests, a flow regulator is a simple device designed to regulate water flow to a predetermined level. The job of a flow regulator is to stop water wastage. For instance, if the regular flow rate through a tap is 20 litres per minute, a flow regulator can reduce the flow rate between 6 to 12 litres per minute to complete the desired chore without feeling low pressure.
Flexible Tail Pipes
Flexible Tails, or "Flexi" Tails, are one of the easiest methods to connect the plumbing pipework to the tap fitting. Mixers generally have two tails, one for the hot water supply and the other for the cold. These tailpipes consist of rubber inside a braided metal and come in many sizes.
Medium Water Pressure
Water systems operating at a pressure between 0.5 and 0.9 bar are considered medium pressure. Products usually come labelled if they are suitable for use in medium pressure.
High Water Pressure
Water systems operating at 1.0 bar or higher pressure are considered high-pressure systems. Products usually come labelled if they are suitable to use under such pressure.
Energy-Efficient LED Light
LED (light-emitting diode) lights in bathroom mirrors use considerably less energy than regular incandescent bulbs to produce light.
The Integrated PIR sensor lights up the unit when movement is detected. It automatically switches off after 10 seconds when there is no movement.
An Ingress Protection (IP) Rating is code manufacturers use to indicate how well a product is protected against water and solid particles like dust. Products rated IP44 are safe from particles larger than 1mm and can withstand water splashes, making them ideal for use in bathrooms, where steam, dampness and splashes are inevitable.
