Back-To-Wall, Pan-Wall-Hung or for the Close Couple, Let’s Talk Toilets

Back-to-wall, wall-hung, or close couple suite, Vaal brings you different types of toilet configurations, provides guidance on how to tell them apart, and helps you choose the correct accompanying toilet fittings.

 

Refine and Entice Back-to-Wall Toilets.

Designed for the toilet pan to be fitted directly against the wall and without the need for a supporting frame, a back-to-wall toilet configuration comes in round and square design options that can be paired perfectly to your preferred bathroom aesthetic. These types of toilets require concealed, in-wall cisterns, resulting in a modern look. Stylish, elegant, and made using Vitreous china for lasting durability and a high shine finish, the Refine back-to-wall toilet with quality thermoset soft-close seat and floor brackets fits seamlessly into contemporary-styled bathrooms, saving space and creating a minimalist look. Whilst the Refine back-to-wall design boasts a rounded rectangular design, the Entice back-to-wall toilet is more rounded and also manufactured from Vitreous china for a glasslike finish. This pan features rimless flush technology and is sold with a quality thermoset soft close seat and floor brackets.

 

Modern Wall-Hung Toilets

Wall-hung toilet configurations are fitted with a concealed cistern inside of the wall so that only the toilet pan or bowl is visible an creating a modern and minimalistic aesthetic. Suspended off the floor to create the illusion of more floor space and an open-plan bathroom, wall-hung toilet configurations are easy to keep clean, and straightforward to maintain. While some may be apprehensive about weight-bearing capacity, these toilets can support up to 400kgs of weight, making for a versatile and sophisticated bathroom fitting. The Energy and Xtacy wall-hung pans are both manufactured from Vitreous china, sold with high quality soft close seats, and will adorn all bathrooms with an uncomplicated and modern appeal. The Refine and Entice pans offer more unique designs and are also fitted with soft close seats. The Urban Life and Orchid wall-hung pans, finished with smooth curves and effortless style, will add a new-age appeal to any bathroom.

 

Classic Close Coupled Toilet suites

Close-coupled toilet suites such as the Entice, Ingenue and Refine options are more classic and everyday toilet configurations. Contrasted with back-to-wall options, the cistern of the close coupled toilet configurations is mounted on top of the toilet pan. While these are more traditional toilet configurations when compared to modern alternatives, close coupled toilets remain competitive in the bathroom design space with renewed shapes and contemporary contours,  regularly introduced to compliment current bathroom themes.
