Installer training on wall-hung sanitaryware at Geberit’s Training Academy
Installer training on wall-hung sanitaryware
Geberit free training to installers demonstrates how straightforward wall-hung systems are to fit plus take away a free frame and cistern to practice on.
With wall-hung sanitaryware becoming an increasingly popular option in domestic bathrooms it’s crucial that installers are up to speed with just how simple it is to fit and maintain when using Geberit systems.
That’s why Geberit is offering free training to installers in order to demonstrate how straightforward wall-hung systems are to fit.
This knowledge can then passed on to the end consumer, giving them the confidence to take full advantage of the many benefits this contemporary bathroom finish has to offer.
Held at the company’s purpose-built training academy in Warwick, the wall-hung training module enables installers to get hands-on with the Geberit Duofix framing system and to gain first-hand knowledge of just how easy it is to install and maintain.
Geberit’s Duofix frame system is the backbone to any modern bathroom design. Hidden behind the wall and tiles, the Duofix frame supports wall-hung sanitaryware and includes an integral cistern. Frames are available for wall-hung WCs, which can support up to 400kg (63stone), washbasins, bidets and urinals. They come complete with all the necessary parts to connect to the wall and floor and to make the plumbing and drainage connections to make installation a quick and simple process.
Geberit has released dates for its wall-hung training module taking place this autumn, with places already filling up fast. Training will be held on the mornings of:
Tuesday, 18 September
Wednesday 19 September

All training is completely free of charge, with lunch and refreshments provided. Each participant will also receive a free Geberit Duofix WC frame and flush plate enabling them to demonstrate their new-found knowledge straight away.

Geberit HDPE pipework has been used to construct a 35,000 litre rainwater harvesting system for the BREEAM rated Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) at the University of Exeter.
The modernisation of the Four Points by Sheraton hotel in MIlan has included the installation of Geberit Monolith sanitary modules in all guest bathrooms. Hotel manager, Maurizio Naro, selected Geberit’s Monolith system due to its space saving exposed cistern and streamlined construction. Monolith has an elegant glass surface which is available in a choice of Black, White, Umber or Mint Green.
Installers and retailers are invited to can gain hands-on experience of Geberit’s piping and sanitary systems at free training days this autumn. Places are filling fast for the modules covering the latest welding techniques using Geberit HDPE drainage pipework plus techniques for fitting wall-hung sanitaryware using the Geberit Duofix WC frame. Installers will finish the module armed with their own Geberit Duofix frame.
Geberit’s new Monolith Vario is a base cover that is added to the bottom of a Monolith WC sanitary module to allow for an adjustable height option. By raising the height of the drain the WC can be positioned at a height of up to 50cm which ensures a comfortable height for less able users. The Monolith Vario base cover is manufactured from brushed INOX in order to blend in with its surroundings and is only visible from 3-9cm.
Geberit’s Mapress carbon steel pipework is still going strong twelve years after its installation at Mater Hospital in Ireland. A recent inspection revealed that the pipework had suffered no corrosion and had remained as effective as it was the day it was installed. Compared with copper, carbon steel pipework offers significant savings yet performs just as effectively if installed correctly.
