With its maximum antibacterial protection and perfect performance, Duravit’s new ‘HygieneFlush’ flushing system is set to revolutionise the toilet market, according to the company.

By combining the new flushing system with Duravit’s antibacterial ceramic glaze, HygieneGlaze, it delivers double protection in any washroom or bathroom.

The unique feature that makes the HygieneFlush effective is the powerful force of the flush, which flows simultaneously from two carefully positioned openings. Independent tests show that this new flushing technique cleans the entire inner surface of the toilet most effectively, the company says. Keeping water usage to a minimum – only 4.5 l is used per flush – the flow is attuned to create a vortex and it is this that guarantees the ideal flushing action every time.

This new technology combines the concept of a rotational flush with Duravit’s Rimless flushing technology while deploying two parallel flushing actions. In addition to this, the openings have been repositioned ensuring that the area at the front of the toilet is cleaned flawlessly every time, while avoiding unwanted splashes.

Cleanliness and excellent sanitation are further guaranteed, the company says, as all new HygieneFlush toilets come with Duravit’s HygieneGlaze ceramic glaze as standard. HygieneGlaze reportedly eliminates bacterial growth; six hours after use, 90% of bacteria are eliminated, with 99.9% eliminated after 24 hours.

The antibacterial glaze is baked into the inner bowl of the toilet during firing; this makes it particularly effective in areas that are highly susceptible to the accumulation of bacteria. The combined action of these unique Duravit features – HygieneFlush and HygieneGlaze – provides maximum protection in terms of hygiene and cleanliness in the bathroom, the company says.
