Thanks to the wonders of technology, the cleanliness of a toilet bowl has now reached unprecedented heights – an important development considering the dangers that bad bacteria can unleash on us.
One sanitaryware company that is leading the way in this is Duravit. It offers two types of products that help ensure optimum effectiveness in keeping toilets pristine.
Flushing in such a toilet allows the water to enter the bowl evenly and powerfully so that the entire interior is rinsed. Manual cleaning it also easily done since the entire bowl is open and easily accessible. The Duravit Rimless® range can also come with the WonderGliss coating that prevents dirt from sticking. This technology is available in the Architec, Darling New, D-Code, Happy D.2, ME by Starck, P3 Comforts, Starck 3, Vero Air and Viu design series.
This is a finish baked into the ceramic as it is fired. The result is a lab-proven reduction in pathogens such as escherichia coli, especially in parts of the toilet where these bacteria tend to accumulate. The patented process is comprised of a combination of metal ions and other active substances. According to experiments conducted, after six hours, almost all bacteria (or 90 percent) are killed, with up to 99.999 percent eliminated after 24 hours. HygieneGlaze 2.0 is available for most of the toilets and urinals in Duravit’s collections.
