What does a manufacturer have to do in order to ensure that its products can be installed as easily as possible and without any errors? In 2017, Geberit will once again be launching many new products that answer this question. Take the shower surface Setaplano, for example – a product where as many components as possible are pre-assembled at the factory. Or how about the new tap system, where the installation of wall-mounted taps is now finally nothing to fear? Then there are the new Pluvia roof outlets, whose outlet grating can be installed and removed without any tools thanks to the new rotating lock bar. When developing each of these products, a great effort was made to simplify the installation process. And as is standard with Geberit, we brought in plumbers from various markets during an early project stage and carried out realistic trials. The findings from these tests led to further improvements to product details.
The Geberit iCon bathroom series is a reflection of personality, and is as multifaceted as people and their lives today. An extensive range of ceramic products and bathroom furniture in a clear and modern design language provides maximum design flexibility.

“There are basically two options when it comes to optimising the acoustic properties of a sanitary installation, namely modifying the source of the sound or reducing the sound transmission. We do both”, says Oliver Wolff, Head of Building Physics at Geberit. For example, the company systematically ensures that sanitary products produce only minimal noise levels right from the development stage onwards. A good example in this regard is the new shower toilet AquaClean Mera. Here, the inner geometry of the rimless WC ceramic appliance was designed so that the flush not only cleans thoroughly, but also virtually noiselessly…
