With its ingenious, innovative toilet technology, Duravit offers everything that today’s consumers want from a toilet: easy to clean, hygienic and fitted with a shower function for the utmost comfort. Seriously. For the ultimate in bathroom experiences, Duravit brings us the pinnacle of all toilets for 2017, with fixtures that meet the highest requirements.
To meet growing demands, in recent years, the toilet has been continuously honed in terms of flushing technology, design, sustainability, comfort and hygiene. Today, only 4.5 instead of 9 litres of water are required for flushing. Special new ceramic finishes are also environmentally friendly. They are easy to clean and this helps to reduce the use of both water and cleaning agents. Antibacterial glazes, which effectively kill bacteria, meet consumers’ demands for greater hygiene. The addition of a shower-toilet seat offers even greater comfort: the warm water cleanses gently and thus meets the need for hygiene and cleanliness.
Open rim and efficient flushing technology
With its Rimless technology, thanks to the successful interaction of geometry, optimized flow and design, Duravit has created an example of pure efficiency. The open design of the toilet rim enables an innovative and efficient flush. A dynamic and powerful flow of water describes a horizontal arc, before the water runs down, flushing the entire inner surface of the bowl. Of course, the applicable standards with regard to possible splashing are also observed and, in part, even exceeded.
Small flushing volume, easy to keep clean
The tried-and-tested WonderGliss coating makes the toilet even easier to keep clean. The optional coating that is baked into the ceramics, doesn’t give dirt and limescale a chance: deposits cannot adhere and are therefore flushed away more easily with the water.
The alternative use of HygieneGlaze 2.0 further improves the hygienic properties of the toilet. The new development is not a surface coating but an antibacterial ceramic glaze that provides almost indefinite effectiveness. The optimized combination of four different metal ions and other components forms the basis for the effectiveness of HygieneGlaze 2.0, which kills bacteria and germs.
HygieneGlaze is integrated into the ceramic glaze during firing. Fired into the inside of the toilet as far as the rim, it kills the unwanted bacteria that are often concealed in toilets and urinals: after six hours, it eliminates up to 90 percent and, after 24 hours, 99.999 percent – an unprecedented level. HygieneGlaze 2.0 is available for all toilets and urinals in the P3 Comforts, ME by Starck and Vero Air ranges.
Greater comfort with the SensoWash shower-toilet
The symbiosis of toilet and bidet is becoming increasingly popular all over the world. Because nothing is as thorough, as hygienic, as natural and as refreshing as cleansing with water. Duravit has looked into this in depth. The result: shower-toilets, which are perfectly matched to the respective design series. The technology has been ingeniously concealed to create a perfect look (figure 4). Thanks to their balanced proportions, the extremely flat SensoWash® shower-toilet seats are difficult to distinguish from a classical toilet. They thus meet the customer’s needs for elegant aesthetics but also offer every comfort of modern toilet hygiene and thereby greater quality of life.
