The Closomat Asana delivers a stylish, wall-hung WC that has added value, with its integrated douching and drying functions delivering ‘the ultimate in intimate hygiene’ for all users, regardless of ability and mobility.
With latest figures showing more than three million people aged over 55 are looking to move home, yet only 7% actually do so, Closomat believe the biggest reason for this is lack of suitable property.
The company’s new option is allowing architects and their housebuilder clients to cost-effectively incorporate a design feature that differentiates the property, and adds value: a shower toilet.
But, as the occupiers age, the functions of the Asana save them having to struggle to clean after going to the toilet, and/or undertake refurbishment or adaptation of the bathroom.
To use, ‘go’ as normal, then trigger the flushing mechanism; Closomat’s Asana flushes, washes the user’s bottom, then soothingly dries it with warm air.
Push button control on the side of the toilet (or via the remote control included as standard) gives a choice of pulsating, rotating, variable temperature sprays – or all in one.
Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager, commented: “If you are designing and building for supported living, the ‘last time buyer’ market, make sure the home is as fit for life as possible.
“The bathroom is the most frequent room to be adapted as the occupier ages, and/or their health deteriorates, and the WC is the most common fixture to be changed.
“Installing a shower toilet not only future-proofs the home, but gives a more hygienic solution too, so there are several USPs with just one comparatively minor change.”
