GROHE Sustainability

A prime example of GROHE dedication to sustainability, is The Edge office building in the Netherlands, where reducing the use of plastic was the focus when working with the architects and designers. GROHE Blue taps were installed to help workers reduce their need to bring in plastic water bottles to keep hydrated while at work. The GROHE Blue tap delivers both still and carbonated water, so instead of bringing in their own water bottle, employees can be environmentally-friendly, by simply filling their glass with fresh filtered tap water, as well as health conscious and remaining hydrated throughout the day.

Sustainability In Style

Sustainability

When considering the design of high-end, luxury developments, responsibility to the environment doesn’t mean sacrificing on functionality and style. Careful design can mean you won’t have to compromise the luxurious standards you expect for your new development or refurbished bathroom.

Sustainability is an integral part of Villeroy and Boch. A central environment management unit focuses on the development of products which efficiently use energy and raw materials. Their approach aims to reduce emissions and extend the life of their products.

To maintain that level of beautiful aesthetics with high-end functionality, Villeroy and Boch have created technologies that perfectly tie together requirements and luxury. Their award-winning water saving system, for example, reduces water usage and cost, without causing any negative effect on the high performance of the product. The reduced water usage also means less material used, as the piping can therefore be smaller, saving space, material and cost.

Direct Flush

Keeping a bathroom spotless and hygienic can also be done without compromising on sustainability, by using an exceptional solution from Villeroy and Boch. Using an antibacterial glaze on their rimless WC means the surface is permanently dirt-repellent, with the flush requiring 90% less water, cleaning agent and cleaning time. Sustainability is integrated seamlessly into the flawless design of the product.

Villeroy and Boch are the perfect example of sustainability being both luxurious and functional. Quality and style is essential in luxurious new builds, high-end developments and top quality renovations.

Bringing a new meaning to bathroom hygiene, cleanliness and comfort Villeroy and Boch offer ground-breaking technology to take your well-being to a new and safer level.

vi-connect

Gone are the gremlins of dirt and mould, no longer hiding in dark corners …simply because there are no corners for them to hide in. Cleanliness is addressed with a triple approach and carefully thought out design. The WC bowl is rimless and therefore easier to clean, reducing the risk of bacterial growth and unsightly stains. This fact combined with a super- efficient, no splash flush, quietly cleanses the entire bowl.

Hygiene is further maintained by anti-bacterial technology. A new innovative glaze inhibits the growth of bacteria by 99.9%, whilst dirt repellent surfaces using a ceramic plus finish again inhibits the growth of bacteria. It is easy to clean and resistant to acids and alkalis. Indeed, a champion of hygiene is offered to take the modern bathroom to a new level of luxury, making it suitable for all high quality sustainable developments and private residences.

TOTO’s Technologically Advanced Lavatory

TOTO WC side view


TOTO’s best selling product is their Washlet Lavatory and it’s easy to see exactly why. With exceptional use of technology, the Washlet toilet combines numerous functions to make one truly outstanding product.

One of the many exceptional features is its ability to self clean, thanks to its use of Actilight technology. This keeps maintenance to a minimum and reduces the need for chemical cleaning agents. All waste is broken down and the superhydrophilic surface is sprayed with water prior to use to ensure the thorough removal of all waste and bacteria.

TOTO WC with light inside

Through the use of Actilight technology, TOTO has paved the way for a very special kind of hygiene, reducing the chemicals and time needed for cleaning. It not only makes upkeep simple but also environmentally friendly. Electrolysed water is used by the system, providing a slightly acidic, antibacterial cleanser, which is completely safe and can be returned to the water cycle without causing any harm.

The Actilight technology harnesses photocalysis, a self-cleaning process that is based on the hydrophilic properties of titanium dioxide. In short, Actilight uses UV light to destroy organic matter on light-sensative titanium dioxide to provide the ultimate cleansing system in an environmentally-friendly and sustainable way.

TOTO WC

This luxury toilet has a range of advanced features including a warmed seat, water jets and air dryer for ultimate cleanliness and an automatically opening and closing lid.

Ideal for the modern, “green”, high-end new developments, the Washlet from TOTO is the perfect combination of technology, luxury and style.

Villeroy & Boch – DirectFlush Subway 2.0

Villery & Boch’s new DirectFlush Subway 2.0 sets a new generation of toilet standards. Complete with an innovative open rim and impeccable modern design which can easily be incorporated into any bathroom, the brilliantly designed DirectFlush Subway 2.0 is ideal in all aspects.

With new its new DirectFlush innovation, Villeroy & Boch have set high flushing standards. A standard toilet bowl consists of having a closed rim along the rim of the bowl. Closed rims are fully concealed, meaning it’s harder to reach when cleaning, making it easier for germs to accumulate. The innovative open rim on the DirectFlush Subway 2.0 allows for effortless cleaning, ensuring that impeccable hygiene can easily be achieved. Open rim toilets drastically decrease the chance of dirt and bacteria developing than compared to a closed rim design. Combined with precise direct flushing, the open rim provides a stable water flow dynamic around the rim of the bowl, allowing for truly amazing flushing technology without any excess splashing and spilling. On a standard rimmed toilet bowl the rim is usually fully concealed, therefore it’s harder to reach when cleaning, making it easier for germs to accumulate. Whilst toilets with no rim can be easy to clean, the water flow for flushing usually is not ideal. This is because there is no limit at the edge of the bowl and the flushing effect is often insufficient.

Direct Flush

Once again, Villeroy & Boch came out on top with their unique and innovative designs. The new DirectFlush Subway 2.0 proved to be the best in the ‘flushing performance category of rimless toilets’. The test was commissioned by Villeroy & Boch and involved carrying out tests on nine rimless toilets by various manufacturers, with the categories consisting of “splashing” and “surface” flushing. The DirectFlush Subway 2.0 came out best, and demonstrated the most thorough flush, as well as being the only toilet not to splash and splurge.

As well as having innovative flushing technology, the DirectFlush Subway 2.0 only uses the ideal water flow for the ideal flushing action. Each flush only uses 3 to 4.5 litres of water, making it both economical and practical.

The DirectFlush 2.0 can be universally applicated, and is available in the design of the Subway 2.0 and Omnia Architectura collection.
