Sanitaryware Rossari 2

A new line of rimless toilets, designed with a completely closed and connected body shape to allow flush to wall installation and concealed fixings.


The new line of Rossari 2 sanitary ware, toilets and bidets, was designed with the most recent technical innovation in mind, such as a completely closed and connected body shape to allow flush to wall installation. Hidden fixings, rimless toilets, respect for the environment a discharge system that uses just 3.5 litres of water. All this while maintaining a classic style and generous shapes to provide the best possible comfort to those who use it.

RIMLESS


The rim is an inlet located in the inner part of the upper edge of the toilet bowl from which the flushing water flows. This solution was designed to allow a homogeneous distribution of water over the entire surface of the bowl but it is very difficult to clean and sanitize, because it is not possible to avoid the accumulation of bacteria. About 20% of the internal toilet pan is not however effectively reached by the water. Deposits are left and consequently unpleasant odours. Furthermore, the amount of water required by this system cannot be reduced beyond certain limits, otherwise the effectiveness of the rinse will be compromised. For some years now, toilets have appeared on the market offering different technical solutions on the flushing water inlet. As it often happens, each manufacturer proposes alternative solutions that essentially aim to completely or partially remove the inlet and simplify the shape to optimize the distribution of wastewater on most toilet bowls. At the moment this appears to be the ideal solution for those who want an optimal hygiene and an effective rinse because the water enters the vessel symmetrically and with great energy, requiring a smaller quantity of water compared to the rimmed versions.

FLUSH TO WALL


Regardless of the type of drainage, whether it be into the floor or wall, these back to wall toilets facilitate cleaning and it is consequently easier to maintain hygiene. This solution is the natural consequence of the evolution of anchoring systems and fittings innovation.

COMFORT DIMENSIONS


When we refer to sanitary ware, in particular toilets, it is useful to remember that the height and the surface of the seat are important to ensure comfortable use, while avoiding pain and discomfort. It is now widely demonstrated that the height of between 45 and 50 centimetres from the ground facilitates the action of sitting down and getting up. But one aspect that is not taken into consideration very often is the seat surface itself which greatly helps to improve the comfort of the toilet, and doesn’t just raise the toilet to a more comfortable level. The Rossari 2 line has a seating area of 0.150 square metres.

SEAT AND COVER

The Rossari 2 line includes a seat with a thermosetting cover, with or without a soft close and polyurethane cover. They can be installed independently on both normal and open front toilets. The choice between one and the other depends on the user and the area in which the toilet will be installed.

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE TOILET – WATER CLOSET


There is no clear and certain history of the toilet bowl and it is very difficult to clearly establish the origins and a single inventor or individual invention. One could hazard a guess that it was an invention ascribed to the whole of humanity, over thousands of years, where each people has contributed to the evolution of this essential bathroom item. In China, in an old Han Dynasty tomb dating back to 206 A.C. an ancient bath was found, complete with a seat and a mechanism to drain water. A similar system was used in imperial Rome where more than 150 public latrines were built to meet the needs of the social classes who could not afford a private bathroom. The Romans were a very civilized people and for them personal hygiene was of great importance. With the arrival of the barbarian populations and the rise of Christianity, personal hygiene and taking care of your body faded into the background to the point of forgetting how much the Romans had done. The most basic sanitary rules were forgotten. In the cities they used toilets that were emptied day and night out of the window onto public roads, thus making towns smelly places and creating poor hygienic conditions. The least hygienic era was probably the Renaissance where in buildings, any isolated living room, gallery or back door could be considered a suitable place to fulfil their needs. In France in the second half of the seventeenth century, special rooms were finally used, with many toilet seats side by side where people could be in amiable company. In England during the reign of Elizabeth I of England, at the end of the 16th century, the toilet was placed in a small room, called a water closet, hence the acronym WC, which, translated into English means closet for water. It seems that the inventor of the very first flush toilet was a certain John Harington, who in 1596 created a complex mechanism with a water tank. A faucet regulated the flow into a smaller tank and by operating a trapdoor, it was possible to drain the wastewater into the cesspit. In 1775, the Scotsman Alexander Cummings, managed to create the final version of the modern toilet, his most important contribution was the invention and the addition of the siphon, a hydraulic solution capable of obstructing the drain pipe with water, and therefore the connection between the toilet and the foul smelling basin for collecting the waste. The toilet seat as we know it today made its appearance in France in 1883.
