Features of the toilet installation

Installation for a toilet bowl is a design in which the installation of a tank, pipes and other communications is carried out in a wall or a special frame structure. Only the toilet itself and the flush button remain visible. Such constructions have gained great popularity in various public institutions - restaurants, entertainment centers, hotels, and are rapidly gaining the market of sanitary appliances for private use - namely apartments and cottages. Today we will talk about what features such structures have, and how they differ from the usual toilet installation.


Features of toilet bowl installations

Perhaps the main feature is the rational use of space in small plumbing rooms. The design does not require a lot of space, the toilet does not rest on the floor, which means you will get more usable space than in the case of a conventional installation.

The second feature is visual. Pipes, communication nodes, a tank and all other details will be hidden in the plane of the wall, and only the button and the plumbing device itself will remain visible. This makes it possible to widely use installations in author's and designer interiors. The design looks modern, does not catch the eye, and also allows you to experiment with the organization of space. With proper installation, the installation does not require binding to existing communications — and you can move the device wherever you see fit.

The ergonomics of the system will help simplify the cleaning process in the bathroom. The toilet does not rest on the floor, this space remains free — which means that dust will not accumulate in hard-to-reach places. If desired, you can even delegate the cleaning process to a robot — they easily drive around bathrooms with suspended structures and can clean the floor more thoroughly. An important detail is the silent drain. This makes the use of the hygienic unit much more comfortable, especially if the toilet is adjacent, for example, to the kitchen.

Almost any toilet can be mounted in a suspended system. Fasteners are made according to standards, which means that the choice will not be limited to several models. Choose any size and shape to your taste. The system can withstand heavy loads — 400-450 kg, which means that it allows people with a large weight to use the installation freely.

The features also include complex installation, which requires special knowledge and skills. The main difficulty of installation lies in the fact that it is necessary to correctly assess all the nuances of installation in advance, since after installation it is much more difficult to alter the structure or move it to another place and many times more expensive than installing a toilet according to old standards.

Users note that in the process of using sometimes there is a slight depreciation when landing, and this raises some doubts on the part of a person. In fact, you just need to get used to the operation of the suspension system, and do not worry about the strength and reliability of the structure.

Types of installations

All toilet bowl installations can be divided into 2 groups:

The first ones are designed for mounting on capital walls, they are fixed in a vertical plane with the help of high-strength steel anchor bolts. The second type is installed in the presence of plasterboard or modular wall structures. Such installations are a metal frame to which all plumbing fixtures are attached. It is difficult to say that any of the types of installations are stronger or more durable, they simply have different purposes.
