Croydex unveils new range of Flexi-Fix toilet seats
roydex continues its expansion into the toilet seat market with the launch of a new range featuring an innovative hinge system that promises to always fit and never slip.
The no mess, no fuss Flexi-Fix seat uses grip pad technology and pioneering patented V plates that provide a huge range of adjustment to fit the fixing holes of any standard toilet.
Collapsible supports hold the hinges away from the pan while the seat is aligned. Once a little pressure is applied, the supports collapse and the high strength self-adhesive pads grip the toilet pan for a secure fit which will not come loose or slip. As the grip pad technology is a pressure sensitive adhesive, it is easy to re-position the hinges during initial installation if fine adjustment to the selected position is required. Finally use the top or bottom fixings supplied to secure in place.
"Croydex has enjoyed a reputation for designing and manufacturing pioneering, practical and easy to use products since 1919," notes Croydex product and procurement director, Peter Pegden. "We use this extensive expertise and experience to develop innovative, easy-to-use solutions that simplify the installation of bathroom accessories."
"We've already tackled the need to repetitively tighten loose toilet seats with our Sit Tight range, now our designers have used their ingenuity to create a quick and easy-to-fit seat which won't come loose or slip over time."
Flexi-Fix seats fit toilet pans with fixing hole centres from 110mm to 200mm - far greater than the 145mm to 165mm specified in the European Standard EN33. They can also be adjusted forwards or backwards by up to 60mm to ensure the seat lines up with the front of the toilet pan. They are supplied with both bottom fix and top fix fittings, making them easy to fit to any type of toilet pan.
The new designs come in a variety of styles, materials and finishes, including features such as soft close hinges to prevent the seat from slamming closed, Hygiene 'N' Clean anti-bacterial treatment and a Quick Release function, which enables the seat to be easily removed for cleaning.
Flexi Fix toilet seats join the ever-growing family of easy to fit, easy to use and easy to maintain products from Croydex. The Flexi-Fix range includes shower sets, bath screens, rust free wire storage baskets and wall-mounted accessories. All of these are designed to solve everyday problems of installation and use.
