Closomat has brought its Asana shower toilet to market in what it claims gives users access to the most aspirational product in the ‘smart’ WC category.
Its ceramic pan is produced in the first sanitaryware factory to be opened in the past 25 years within the porcelain heartland of Stoke while the flush technology is also made in the West Midlands.
Bringing together British and Swiss engineering, the WC’s douche mechanism is hand-machined from solid billet in Switzerland.
Mark Sadler, Closomat sales director, thinks the design will help functionality for people’s needs.
He said: “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.”
He added: “Just because someone may need help to use the WC does not mean they have to ‘make do’ with a product that looks institutional, and 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, can be used as a conventional WC and due to integrated douche and drying technology, the user is hygienically, consistently washed and dried without the need to manually clean with toilet paper.
It also features a choice of wash options which include rotating, pulsing, temperature variation something the company says deliver the best cleaning performance available in shower toilets.
