The touch-free bath

Touch-free products mean greater hygiene and cleanliness in the bath: TOTO has new solutions designed especially for the guest bathroom
This guest bathroom is equipped with TOTO products that ensure the best possible hygiene for visitors: Our WASHLET™ RW auto flush, a sensor-activated faucet, low-noise hand dryer and asymmetrical TA vessel – which may look delicate, but is made of especially durable, dirt-resistant ceramic.

Cleanliness is essential whenever several people use the same bathroom. The fewer things that you need to touch by hand, the better. Touch-free faucets and hand dryers once reserved for public washrooms but are now becoming more common in people’s homes. TOTO has designed special solutions especially for the guest bathroom that will elevate your standards of hygiene: In addition to several WASHLET models with automatic flush options, the Japanese sanitaryware company offers touch-free faucets, hand dryers and washbasins with especially dirt-resistant ceramic surfaces.

 

Touch-free features are especially welcome in frequently used guest bathrooms. Sensor-activated products that you don’t have to touch with your hands help you feel cleaner and more comfortable. Any guest would immediately notice just how much their hosts care about the well-being of their visitors. In response to people’s growing demands for greater hygiene, TOTO is offering more touch-free functionalities in its shower toilets (WASHLET™), faucets and automatic hand dryers. Other new products in our collection include washbasins made of our especially thin-panelled, dirt-resistant and easy-to-clean ceramic (LINEARCERAM).

 

WASHLETTM with sensor-activated lid and automatic flush

Guest bathrooms are trending more towards shower toilets with integrated intimate cleansing features that minimise the need for toilet paper. The latest model from TOTO is WASHLET™ RW auto flush with automatic flush functionality. Once you approach WASHLET, the sensor-activated lid raises – and the toilet flushes automatically when you walk away. WASHLET will determine how much water to use for the flush based on the amount of time you spend sitting on the toilet.

TOTO developed its own unique LINEARCERAM material, a very thin-panelled, delicate-looking ceramic that is incredibly durable. It is used in many washbasins, including TOTO’s eye-catching asymmetrical TA vessel. It has a dirt-resistant, easy-to-clean ceramic surface, which essentially prevents waste and bacteria from accumulating. This robust surface can even be cleaned using microfibre cloth and will still keep its brilliant shine after years of constant use.

 

TOTO’s sensor-based faucets and hand dryers

Automatic faucets equipped with sensors bring even more hygiene to the bathroom, including TOTO’s elegant, wall-mounted Autofaucet with concealed installation. The hidden sensor in the faucet can register every hand movement and dispense the exact amount of water needed. The faucet even generates its own electricity from the flow of water – no power socket required.

If you’re trying to maximise hygiene, the move from the touch-free faucet to automatic hand dryer is an obvious one. TOTO’s powerful model is an ideal solution for guest bathrooms in the home, drying hands with warm air in no time. According to a company statement, “Our Research Department has also managed to reduce the noise of our hand dryer to a minimum – making it a great option for home bathrooms.”
