Geberit, a leading Swiss sanitary solutions provider, says the new Geberit ONE washbasins feature innovative space-saving drain systems that eliminate the need for a trap recess in the drawer.
This is thanks to the new Geberit Clou siphons, which free up space that is usually taken up by the trap underneath the washbasin.
“During product development for Geberit ONE, we looked at how traps can be installed in a space-saving way,” explains Sebastian King, Product Manager International at the Geberit Group head office in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland. “With this in mind, we equipped all new Geberit ONE washbasins with space-saving drain systems that can run both horizontally and vertically.”
A major advantage of the Geberit drains is that their innovative design means there is no longer any need for a trap recess in the drawer. This is because both the pipes and the trap are routed close to the ceramic appliance and the wall. This is the case on the Geberit ONE washbasins with horizontal and vertical drains and a standard projection of 48 cm, and on the new Geberit iCon washbasins.
Installation is quick and easy as usual, with the horizontal drain now mounted even faster than before, King says.
The horizontal washbasin drain is positioned on the rear edge of the basin and concealed with a magnetic cover. Thanks to its position at the rear, the drain is not directly in the water jet’s line of fire. The drain has such a compact design that it can be routed along the wall, thus saving space.
On the horizontal drain, most of the technology – in other words, the drain itself – is already pre-mounted on the ceramic appliance, thus saving time during installation. A trained plumber can carry out installation in around 10 minutes, he says.
Geberit ONE washbasins with a standard projection of 48 cm are available with a vertical drain. The ceramic drain cover blends in perfectly with the geometry of the washbasin. Thanks to the reduced valve seat, this drain design also saves space when installed.
The Clou system is a drain and overflow system that is concealed behind or underneath the washbasin and is used for the overflow function. The overflow hole is thus no longer required, allowing for a shrouded surface on the washbasin.
The vertical drain, which includes a complete installation set, can be installed by a trained plumber in around 15 minutes.
