Duravit’s latest sanitaryware in ‘smart’ segment
4 Rimless Toilets: Duravit has created an example of pure efficiency. The open design of the toilet rim enables an innovative and efficient flush. A dynamic and powerful flow of water describes a horizontal arc, before the water runs down, flushing the entire inner surface of the bowl. Of course, the applicable standards with regard to possible splashing are also observed and, in part, even exceeded.
5 WonderGliss: Hygienic flushing results are achieved even with small water volumes of just 4.5 litres. Thanks to the open, easily accessible rim area, the bowl is also particularly easy to keep clean, and this reduces cleaning times considerably. The tried-and-tested WonderGliss coating makes the toilet even easier to keep clean.
6 HygieneGlaze 2.0: HygieneGlaze 2.0 further improves the hygienic properties of the toilet. The new development is not a surface coating, but an antibacterial ceramic glaze that provides almost indefinite effectiveness. Fired into the inside of the toilet as far as the rim, it kills the unwanted bacteria that are often concealed in toilets and urinals: after six hours, it eliminates up to 90 per cent and, after 24 hours, 99.999 per cent an unprecedented level.
7 SensoWash shower-toilet: The extremely flat SensoWash shower-toilet seats are difficult to distinguish from a classical toilet. They thus meet the customer’s needs for elegant aesthetics, but also offer every comfort of modern toilet hygiene and thereby greater quality of life. All of the SensoWash functions are operated by remote control. After using the toilet, simply select the desired function Rearwash, Comfortwash or Ladywash and enjoy the pleasant and gentle cleansing with warm water. The motor-operated toilet lid and toilet seat open and close by remote control.

11 QUEO Wet Beatz musical shower: The rain shower head comes with an in-built magnetic wireless speaker which can be paired with Bluetooth-enabled devices and this in turn enables the consumers to enjoy their playlist even while taking a shower.
