Wall-hung WCs made easy with striking glass casing Vitrus from VitrA
VitrA has pioneered easy, fuss free installation for wall hung sanitaryware with its extensive range of in wall frames and has now taken another step forward with the introduction of Vitrus, an elegant glass casing-control panel combination that means wall-hung, or back to wall WCs can be retro fitted and new installations can be made without the need for a false wall.
Vitrus comprises an in-wall-frame and cistern within a slimline glass case that seamlessly combines a modern dual-flush plate. The pan is attached to the casing which can be fixed to most types of wall. Available in either opaque white or opaque black shatterproof glass, Vitrus has been designed with a large cover opening so that the cistern is easily accessible for maintenance.
"Vitrus solves a lot of installation problems, not just for those who want to upgrade to a wall-hung WC or shower WC but also in new installations," says marketing manager Margaret Talbot. "Either black or white glass makes a striking stand-out addition to all bathroom settings; it works well with white or black sanitaryware and the fitting can be used with a selection of our wall-hung or back to wall pans."
Founded in 1958, VitrA is Turkey's leading bathroom manufacturer. In recent years VitrA has expanded into international markets and over 50% of VitrA's total output is sold outside of Turkey. From 13 production facilities in Turkey, Germany, France and Russia, VitrA produces a full range of bathroom products including over five million pieces of sanitaryware along with complementary bathroom furniture, baths, brassware and bathroom accessories, which are distributed to over 75 countries on five continents.
