Villeroy & Boch sets new hygiene standards with the WC innovation DirectFlush: In the rimless DirectFlush WCs the conventional flushing rim is replaced with an intelligent water flow that rinses the entire interior of the bowl, without over-splashing. Conventional WCs have a narrow flushing rim, the interior of which is most difficult both to view and to access. Instead of this flushing rim DirectFlush WCs are equipped with a small splash guard, allowing the WC bowl to be easily and hygienically cleaned. With a water consumption of only 3 or 4.5 litres, the innovative flushing technology maintains high flushing efficiency and ensures the rinsing of the entire bowl, so soiling can be avoided from the outset. As the open rim is completely glazed the WC can be particularly quickly, easily and thoroughly cleaned. The WC innovation DirectFlush thus meets the hygiene requirements not only in hospitals or in busy public buildings, but also in private homes.
