How can pod and modular bathroom manufacturers ensure efficiency and cost savings across bathroom projects without compromising on space or style?
The prominence of bathroom and washroom spaces continues to grow. In residential markets, the bathroom is one of the most important places in the home to switch off from our 'always-on' world. Likewise in hotels, bathrooms and washrooms provide the ultimate place of escape and can be a key part of the guest experience. Good design, therefore, has never been more important.
With customers increasingly looking for cost-effective and complete bathroom packages that boast both quality and design excellence, Geberit's range of space-saving ceramic and bathroom furniture offer pod and bathroom manufacturers a world of design possibilities for any budget or project.
Wall-mounted furniture and ceramics, which create the illusion of 'floating' above the floor, can offer a space-saving solution that opens up the space and creates a streamlined design.
The premise is simple. Wall-hung toilets are made possible in bathrooms thanks to the inclusion of quick and affordable pre-wall frame systems, such as Geberit Duofix. By concealing the cistern behind a stud wall, a wall-hung toilet reduces the outward projection of the ceramic.
In smaller pods, opting for wall-hung ceramics can make a real difference - the ability to conceal the cistern and lift the toilet's footprint off the floor can make even the smallest of bathroom spaces instantly appear bigger. Servicing and access to the cistern is also made easy via the flush plate.
Opting for wall-hung sanitaryware can also offer operational benefits across commercial projects. Lifting the toilet from the floor makes maintenance and cleaning much easier, helping reduce dirt and dust accumulation; in turn, this can help commercial customers reduce any associated staffing and maintenance costs.
With more than 10 models available, Geberit's Duofix wall-hung frame system, together with the wide range of wall-hung ceramic furniture, pod and bathroom manufacturers will find a wall-hung solution for any project.
Back to wall solutions
Back-to-wall toilets offer another space saving option for modular and bathroom pod manufacturers.
Instead of installing a wall-hung frame, the WC stands on the floor with the cistern is concealed inside the wall or furniture.
These designs, just like wall-hung, are space-efficient by reducing the outward projection of the ceramic and offering a streamlined design.
Both Geberit's wall-hung and back-to-wall ceramic ranges boast features such as soft closing seats, water saving flush and Rimfree pan for easy cleaning.
Alternatively, opting for simple, slim design solutions can create valuable space on a bathroom project and unlock value. Geberit's Selnova Compact and Renova Plan series, for instance, offer a suite of compact and slimline furniture options, including short projection WCs and smaller-depth basins. Both ranges also incorporate a number of smart storage solutions like vanity units, tall shelving and mirror cabinets, helping add value and design appeal to the project.
Putting our customers first, Geberit's dedicated OEM team work closely with manufacturers, applying their product know-how and technical expertise every step of the way.
