Japan has “done great things” when it comes to toilets, as ARD correspondent Uwe Schwering shared in the recently broadcast two-part series “Geheimnisvolles Tokio” (“Mystical Tokyo”), along with his visit to the TOTO showroom. Of course, not every product has such spectacular hygiene and comfort features as WASHLET™, which was the focus of the piece. There are a number of exceptional products to discover in TOTO’s extensive portfolio that enrich people’s everyday lives in Japan – and, increasingly, in Europe as well. Like the urinal, for example.
A product people find very approachable
TOTO urinals have an elegant, streamlined design, including an integral trap to prevent odours along with other outstanding hygiene features. They can be found in exclusive locations and hotels, like the recently opened Andaz Vienna am Belvedere, as well as other public washrooms. TOTO urinals look clean and inviting at first glance, making people feel comfortable enough to approach and use them. The rimless design, extended opening to the front and the design of the back panel are all characteristic of the TOTO brand, and help keep any spray from spreading outside of the bowl. The large, extended opening to the front ensures that there is enough space between the user’s head and the wall. As a result, everything lands where it should – helping to promote better hygiene in public restrooms, which frequently have to deal with puddles underneath urinals.
Redefining cleanliness on ceramic surfaces
The rimless bowl looks and smells very clean as every inch of it is thoroughly rinsed – with no more than one litre of water! Unlike conventional models with a rim around the bowl, nothing can accumulate below the edge, which makes TOTO urinals easier to clean. One special feature here is the extremely hard and durable CEFIONTECT glaze, which guarantees long-lasting shine and keeps the product looking new despite years of intensive use. The innovative ceramic glaze also prevents any waste from accumulating – even nanoparticles of dirt not detectible by the human eye barely stick to the surface. According to TOTO’s statement, the company feels that it has “redefined” the cleanliness of ceramic surfaces with this unique glaze. Researchers also paid close attention to the ceramic trap, which is easier to clean when clogged by materials such as chewing gum or cigarettes.
