Innovation and engineering excellence are being showcased with the latest WC innovation.
The Closomat Asana shower toilet unites British and Swiss innovation and engineering excellence to bring to market what is claimed to be the most aspirational in “smart” WCs.
The Asana’s ceramic pan is produced in the first sanitaryware factory to be opened in the past 25 years within the porcelain heartland of The Potteries (in Fenton, Stoke on Trent). Each bowl is finished to achieve the engineered precision and exacting tolerances required for optimum performance. The flush technology has been developed in the UK’s industrial heartland, the Black Country. The douche mechanism is hand-machined from solid billet in Switzerland.
“The whole ethos behind Asana was to develop a toilet that was aspirational, as well as functional in terms of enabling people to be independent, at least with their toilet needs,” explains Mark Sadler, Closomat Sales Director. “Just because someone may need help to use the WC (now or in the future) does not mean they have to ‘make do’ with a product that looks institutional, and/or is of inferior quality. The Closomat Asana is desirable from bottom up: it is stylish, delivers the best wash and dry performance available, and is built to last a lifetime, compliant with all current requirements.
“We use the toilet on average eight times a day- probably more than any other fixture in the home. It therefore needs to cope with that degree of usage, year in year out.”
The Asana wall-hung WC- like all Closomat shower toilets- looks like, and can be used as a conventional WC; with integrated douche and drying technology, the user is hygienically, consistently washed and dried after ‘going’, without the need to manually clean with toilet paper.
The Closomat Asana features a choice of wash options -including rotating, pulsing, temperature variation- that the company says deliver the best cleaning performance available in shower toilets. Closomat further maintains its drying performance is the most effective on the market.
Asana further incorporates design features that deliver optimum comfort and performance for the user, developed from Closomat’s decades of manufacturing and supplying toilets to help people optimise independence and hygiene however young, old, able they are. Features include a 90degree angle between hidden cistern and pan to ensure the user is sat correctly and safely, and a 90 degree spray angle so the douche cleans as effectively and efficiently as possible, and an elongated seat opening to address gender considerations.
Closomat is the UK’s leading supplier of enabling toileting technology, to help anyone- young, old, able or disabled- to achieve dignified and effective cleanliness after toileting. The company offers a complete project management service, from design/ specification through installation, commissioning and future service & maintenance.
