Remote flushing technology can be positioned freely in the bathroom
Given the chance, over half of UK householders would locate the flush away from the traditional area behind the toilet, according to latest research by Geberit. Responding to this demand, new Geberit remote flush buttons offer a flexible, practical and simple to fit solution to the siting of flush buttons for wall-hung installation.
The survey revealed that 30% of homeowners would prefer to site the flush to the left or right of the WC, rather than directly behind it, with many people even keen on the idea of siting it by the bathroom door, ready for flushing on their way out.
The launch of the Geberit Type01 and Type10 flush buttons gives consumers just this level of freedom, as they can be positioned up to 1.7m away from the cistern. This means the flush button does not have to be placed directly in front of the cistern, something which 20% of UK homeowners believe spoils the aesthetics of the bathroom.
Available for tiled and furniture installations, the Geberit Type01 and Type10 flush buttons are compatible with Geberit's leading Sigma and Omega cisterns and can be installed practically anywhere in the bathroom, into dry or solid walls.
For complete co-ordination with any style of bathroom, the Type01 remote flush button comes in three colours and for both single and dual flush, while six different versions of the Type10 remote flush button are available.
Fitting of the remote flush buttons is simple and safe, with a full installation set supplied, with a counter nut version available to lock the pneumatic cylinder securely into place on bathroom furniture. Maintenance of the concealed cistern is also as simple as ever with Geberit systems, with a variety of service opening cover plates available in a range of materials and colours to blend into the decor for a seamless finish.
Headquartered in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland, the Geberit group boasts a strong local presence in most European countries, providing great value when it comes to sanitary technology and bathroom ceramics. The production network encompasses 35 production facilities, of which six are located overseas. With more than 12,000 employees in over 40 countries, Geberit generates net sales of CHF 2.9 billion.
