Adapted bathroom manufacturer Closomat has introduced a new wash and dry WC as the latest in its line of toilets, which include the Palma Vita.
The Asana is designed to incorporate the company’s latest engineering advancements with contemporary design.
The company claims it is the only manufacturer of wash and dry toilets whose solutions have been specifically made for users with limitations.
Closomat said the new Asana is part of its move to help the sector break away from the perceived issue of assistive technology often being designed as purely functional.
The wall-hung WC can function as a conventional toilet or by appropriate selection via easy-to-reach push buttons on the side of the toilet, which trigger the flush, and eliminate the need to wipe clean by triggering of the integrated douching and drying processes.
For its latest product, Closomat has ensured manufacturing and engineering has been kept in Britian.
The porcelain pan is fired in the first ceramic sanitaryware factory to open in The Potteries for almost quarter of a century.
The flush mechanisms have been developed in Britain in partnership with one of the UK’s leading plumbing names, Thomas Dudley.
Asana will fall under Closomat’s support and partners will be given UK pre and aftersales support, in-house installation and commissioning and in-house service and maintenance.
Closomat’s managing director Brian Hoare explained that in yoga, Asana is a pose, usually seated, of comfort and relaxation.
“The name is therefore apt for our latest evolution. Closomat’s ethos is about enabling toileting to be executed in comfort, and with dignity.
“We ‘go’ on average eight times a day, so toileting has more of an impact on daily life than most people realise, or appreciate.”
