In a space devoted to personal hygiene it makes perfect sense to limit the transfer of germs from hands to surfaces and back again! Kohler’s introduction of a Touchless flush toilet suite, the first of its kind on the New Zealand market, takes hygiene in the bathroom to the next level.
The sleek, softly contoured ModernLife back to wall Touchless Flush toilet suite is the next generation in hands-free technology whereby a sensor, positioned beneath the lid of the cistern, is activated by simply passing a hand over the top of it. Earlier touchless technology relied on a beam-based sensor that could easily be mistakenly activated by general movement in the vicinity of the toilet.
Kohler’s HygieneMax™ rimless pan technology contributes yet another level of hygiene to the ModernLife design – delivering a robust, double wash-down with optimal coverage of the interior bowl
The ModernLife Touchless Flush toilet suite also offers a choice of two comfortable, quiet-close seat designs – the low profile Slim and the sophisticated Elite model. The latter features battery operated deodoriser, with a choice of fragrance packs, plus an LED night light.
And while Touchless technology is the hero of this toilet suite, there is also a side push button for manual flush. Kohler’s ModernLife back to wall Touchless toilet suite has a four star WELS rating (4.5/3.5L dual flush), meaning it is well within new build codes, while its suitability for both P-trap and S-trap connection makes it ideal for retrofits.
The ModernLife Touchless retails for $1095 for the model with Slim seat and $1195 with the Elite seat. They are both available exclusively from Mico, Plumbing Plus and Chesters stores nationally. Go to www.kohler.co.nz for more details and showroom locations.
