“We are pleased to be selected for this award by the readers of K&BB once again. Geberit in-wall systems have long been very popular in Europe.

The Geberit in-wall system increases usable space in full bathrooms and powder rooms, providing unlimited possibilities. Because the integral toilet tank is hidden behind the wall, the decorative flush plate attached to the wall is the only visible component of the Geberit system. This provides a sleek, modern look and improves hygiene by making bathroom clean-up a breeze.
The Geberit system increases accessibility, saves water, and offers increased reliability over standard bathroom plumbing hardware. The flexible, adaptable in-wall carrier systems are designed for easy installation, attaching to existing wall framing and supply and waste piping using standard tools. Once installed, the system is practically maintenance-free. Simple change-out of components can be accomplished without the use of tools.
The Geberit residential product line consists of water-saving in-wall concealed systems for toilets, urinals, bidets and lavatories and includes cable-controlled bath waste and overflows. Products are covered by one of the industry’s best warranties.
