Twyford Bathrooms, inventors of the Unitas, the first flush down toilet, has once again broken the mould of toilet design with the launch of a truly rimless pan, the company announced last week.
Unique to Twyford Bathrooms, the truly rimless WC (with patent pending) is exactly that; it has no covered rim, no hidden channels, no box section and no tubes.
There is no need for a rim because of a uniquely engineered water distribution system developed by Twyford Bathrooms that efficiently removes all waste as effectively as a traditional toilet. The self draining jets at the back of the bowl release water which flows entirely round the inside of the pan, and with no hidden rim or water jets, there is simply nowhere for the germs to hide. This makes the pan ultra hygienic and easy to clean (as well as fully HTM64 compliant for the commercial sector). This, says the company, sets new standards for toilet hygiene and could even sound the death knoll for toilet duck style cleaners everywhere!
The rimless pan was initially developed for the healthcare sector, where it forms part of Twyford Bathrooms’ redesigned Sola collection. However, its potential for other markets is apparent and will be extended into Twyford Bathrooms’ domestic ranges. The rimless pan will no doubt cause ripples in the bathroom market world-wide and Twyford Bathrooms expect it to set a new standard in sanitaryware design and performance.
The rimless pan operates on 4 litres, which is 2 litres below the current water regulations.
