Wall hung toilets are growing in popularity all over the UK, and it’s not hard to understand why. Sleek, good-looking, and a great space-saver, they add a touch of luxury to any bathroom. Wall hung toilets have been around for a long time, but many of our customers still have questions. How do they work? Are they safe? How do we access the cistern if it’s out of sight behind a wall? We want to clear up all the mysteries and myths surrounding wall hung toilets. Here are the reasons you might want to consider installing one in your home.
Also known as wall-mounted toilets, these units have a hidden cistern which is concealed behind a wall. A special panel allows easy access for repairs and maintenance, and the pan is suspended from a strong frame that it built right into the wall. Some people worry that a wall mounted toilet might fall off the wall in the middle of use, but they’ve been designed to handle loads of 200kg or more. While a wall-hung toilet may look like it’s magically floating, there’s a good amount of engineering that goes into creating a sturdy, reliable seat. Because the cistern is in the wall and not standing out in front of it, the projection and overall footprint of a wall hung toilet is much smaller than a traditional or close-coupled unit. If you’re outfitting a petite cloakroom or a tiny en-suite, those extra inches can make a huge difference in how comfortable, attractive, and usable the bathroom will be.
