What are the different types of toilets?

Commercial Washrooms supplies 4 types of toilet pans and cistern arrangements, each with their own suitability for certain installations and environments.

1. Low-level toilet - the cistern is positioned on the wall just above the pan with a short length of plastic pipe connecting the cistern and the toilet. The toilet is flushed using a lever handle or push button located on the cistern.    

2. Close coupled toilet - the cistern sits on the back of the toilet pan and can be flushed using a handle or push button which is located on the cistern. Close-coupled pans can project further away from the wall in comparison to low-level systems.

3. Back to wall toilet - the concealed cistern is located behind a panel or wall, designed to conceal the cistern and waste pipes.  The toilet is fixed to the floor and is positioned against the panel or wall.  The toilet can be flushed using a sensor flush kit, a lever flush, or a push button flush, each of which can be located through the panel or wall to activate the concealed cistern.

4. Wall hung toilet - the cistern is located behind a panel or wall which is designed to conceal the cistern and waste pipes.  The toilet is fixed flush to a panel or wall using metal brackets and is suspended clear from the floor.  Wall hung pans offer a modern feel to a premium washroom.

We work with a range of leading sanitary ware manufacturers such as Twyford & Armitage Shanks to offer leading products at great prices.  

All of our commercial toilets have been designed to the highest quality and durability and are suitable for all types of washrooms, including offices, schools, hospitals and disabled facilities.

In addition to the wall-hung, back to wall, close coupled and low-level toilets, we also offer rim-less models and sector-specific toilets such as lower height school toilets for children.
