What are Rimless Toilets?

Open design of the toilet rim, innovative and powerful flush – Duravit

With its new Rimless technology, Duravit demonstrates how geometry, fluid mechanics and design can be successfully combined for maximum efficiency. In Duravit Rimless®, the open design of the toilet rim enables an innovative and powerful flush: water flows in the form of a horizontal arc, and then vertically, before flushing the entire inner surface of the bowl without splashing.

Low water consumption, easy to clean

This ensures perfect and hygienic flushing results, even with smaller volumes of water, like 4.5 litres. Thanks to the open, easily accessible rim area,the bowl is particularly easy to keep clean, and this reduces cleaning times considerably.
The toilet is even easier to keep clean with WonderGliss: an optional coating that is baked into the ceramics and doesn’t give grime a chance. Thanks to WonderGliss, dirt and limescale are unable to secure a hold on the smooth surface and residues run off more easily with the water.
In the practical test of rimless toilets conducted by SBZ, the German specialist journal for the plumbing, heating and air-conditioning industry, Duravit received a top grade with 1.9 and with 2.08 the highest average result of all manufacturers

Rimless is the new trend – Villeroy & Boch

The new rimless toilet trend has increasingly found its ways into private households in the last few years. Toilets without a rim contribute significantly to more hygiene in the bathroom. Bacteria and smells accumulate and spread under the rim of conventional toilets, as this area is difficult to clean. The innovative DirectFlush technology from Villeroy & Boch, which can be found in the Architectura, O.novo Vita and Subway 2.0 ranges, allows you to clean the inner bowl of your toilet completely and thoroughly. The unique flushing system prevents water splashing while minimising water consumption. So you save water while improving cleaning performance – an innovation that also protects the environment.

Innovative and functional – washdown toilets from Villeroy & Boch

Innovation combined with maximum functionality – a typical feature of toilets from Villeroy & Boch. They are available in a wide selection of different designs. You can choose round or square/rectangular toilet bowl for your bathroom, with a modern or nostalgic look to match your own interior style. As has been standard for the Villeroy & Boch brand for more than 250 years, all toilets are of the highest quality and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. A washdowntoilet has become the norm in bathrooms, as the odour that develops is not as strong compared to shelf toilets (a type of toilet popular in several European countries). Excrement drops directly into the water in the siphon. They do not have the platform, that toilets have, making cleaning easier, minimising odours and increasing hygiene.

Villeroy & Boch offers wall-mounted and floor-standing washdown toilets to suit all tastes. You can also choose between standard size toilets for large bathrooms and shorter models that fit perfectly in guest bathrooms. The product range has many different designs. Clean lines match modern bathrooms while rounder shapes have a more nostalgic look. But it doesn’t matter whether you prefer a cosmopolitan, rustic or classic style, you are bound to find the right ceramic sanitary ware in our collections.


Your washdown toilet is easier to clean thanks to the CeramicPlus finish

Cleaning a toilet is a chore no one enjoys doing. For this reason, there are toilets with a special ceramic, CeramicPlus, which makes cleaning a lot easier. Thanks to the dirt-repellent surface finish, dirt and limescale simply roll off and flow directly into the siphon. The surface not only stays cleaner for longer and is very low maintenance, but it also minimises the development of germs and bacteria. It also eliminates odours as dirt residue cannot stick to the surface.
