Blurring the lines

  • Angela May

Closomat is blurring the lines of sector design to enable capitalisation on a growing market: that of smart, enabling fixtures and fittings.

Asana’s integrated douche and dry capability provides the ultimate in intimate hygiene and wellness, as there is no need to wipe clean. The ‘smart’ technology appeals to the younger generation. The level of cleanliness achieved appeals to all. The elimination of the physical contortions, balance and dexterity required to wipe oneself means almost anyone, regardless of limitation, can use the WC.

Closomat has not only been innovative in the Asana’s design. The company has added a configurator tool to its website- believed to be the first of its kind in the shower toilet sector. Using the technology, potential buyers can check out the choice of flush mechanisms, concealed cistern and surface-mounting options, to ‘mix and match’ to their own preference before they buy.

“Historically, there have been stylish fixtures, and ‘disabled’ products,” observes Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager. “Asana eliminates that differentiation. One product suits all, delivering the stylish design we all aspire to, whilst enabling the user to ‘go’ even as their faculties deteriorate. With our ageing population, and increasingly multi-generational households, there is a growing demand and need for such fixtures and fittings, and a corresponding opportunity for all in the supply chain.”
