NEW AESTHETIC AND PRACTICAL SANITARYWARE AND FLUSHING SYSTEMS ARE TURNING BATHROOMS INTO DYNAMIC SPACES.
BINDU GOPAL RAO
A diverse product portfolio of best-in-class solutions for bathrooms, ranging from functional to luxurious, is adding new dimensions to bathrooms.

NEW LAUNCHES

LIXIL, known for global brands such as GROHE and American Standard, has recently introduced new GROHE collections in entry-level to premium price segments, including features like PureGuard, which focuses on superior hygiene. “The GROHE Rapid SL flushing system gives you the freedom to design an aesthetic, clutter-free bathroom by providing a secure and quick method of installing wall-hung basins, bidets, urinals and toilets. It is available in three different installation heights. Each frame comes pre-assembled with a sanitary ware fixing mechanism and is subject to stringent testing - our cistern frames are tested to hold up to 400 kg. Our new launches at American Standard have focused on promoting hygiene and providing protection from disease-causing bacteria and germs. The Acacia SupaSleek wall-hung toilet features our patented AquaCeramic technology, and has an extremely hydrophilic surface. It allows water to penetrate beneath any waste that has adhered to the ceramic and easily lifts it using only the power of water. Signature wall-hung toilets with Hygiene Rim technology clean the bowl thoroughly and are stain resistance. The Kastello wall-hung toilet with Hygiene Rim and ComfortClean technologies stop disease-causing E. Coli bacteria from growing,” explains Bobby Joseph, Leader LIXIL Water Technology, India and Subcontinent.

Likewise, Hansgrohe’s newly launched Vivenis faucets provide grandeur with economical water consumption features. The Vivenis faucets come in several variants with on-the-wall and concealed installation options. They also offer a state-of-the-art concept called Rainfinity. It is equipped with different jet and spray features. Its futuristic archetype design enhances the overall outlook and atmosphere of the bathroom.
