Company’s New Wave-Inspired WASHLET+ Model is iF Design Award Winner
TOTO, the world’s largest plumbing manufacturer with more than $5.47 billion in annual sales, announces the introduction of its latest rectangular WASHLET+ model — WASHLET+ SW. The new wave-inspired WASHLET+ bidet seat is the winner of the iF Design Award, which recognizes outstanding design achievement and is one of the most important design prizes in the world. The new WASHLET+ SW exemplifies the design and engineering prowess that TOTO has gained from over 40 years of WASHLET® production and more than 50 million WASHLET sold worldwide.
Like its rounded counterpart — WASHLET+ RW — WASHLET+ SW offers all the proven WASHLET personal cleansing technologies in one product for the ultimate in wellness, comfort, and hygiene — gentle warm-aerated water dual-action spray; adjustable temperature, pressure, pulsating, and oscillating features; warm air dryer; heated seat; auto open/close and auto flush; in-bowl catalytic deodorizer; and energy- and water-saving features. Designed to pair with the SP Wall-Hung bowl, the SP WASHLET+ SW Wall-Hung Toilet represents a technological milestone for TOTO that embodies the company’s CLEANOVATION brand commitment.
CLEANOVATION: TOTO articulates its philosophy of clean as CLEANOVATION, a neologism combining the words “clean” and “innovation.” TOTO believes that cleanliness is a fundamental human value that enriches beauty, peace of mind, feeling refreshed, consideration for the environment, and wellness. TOTO uncompromisingly pursues innovation that brings to market cleanliness technologies that enhance consumers’ daily lives.
Design: The rectangular, wave-inspired WASHLET+ SW bidet seat pairs with the SP Wall-Hung Toilet by TOTO. Together, they offer homeowners a clean, modern design aesthetic for their bathrooms. The SP WASHLET+ SW Wall-Hung Toilet saves as much as nine inches of precious room space, which is especially important in small bathrooms and powder rooms, where square footage is at a premium. The long flat surface revealed when the lid of WASHLET+ SW is open looks comfortable and invites users to sit. TOTO has made the seat thinner and lighter and incorporated a gentle wave-line and elegant design details on its sides that imbue bath spaces with an air of sophistication.
WASHLET+ Design: The SP Wall-Hung Toilet seamlessly connects with WASHLET+ SW, leaving with no protruding supply connections (water or electrical). This TOTO innovation, called WASHLET+, not only improves the unit’s appearance but also enhances its cleanliness by inhibiting dust and dirt buildup. With the WASHLET+ connection structure, WASHLET+ SW easily detaches from the SP Wall-Hung Toilet to reach areas where dust and dirt tend to collect. This design innovation is just one of the ways TOTO makes it easier to keep the SP WASHLET+ SW Wall-Hung Toilet cleaner longer.
Flushing Performance: The SP WASHLET+ SW Wall-Hung Toilet offers the DYNAMAX TORNADO FLUSH® system by TOTO, which features two powerful nozzles that create a centrifugal, cyclonic rinsing action that reduces waste buildup and keeps the bowl cleaner. Using only 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf) for the full flush and 0.9 gpf for the light, this high-efficiency flushing system is more effective in one flush than most toilets are with multiple flushes. Its modern hole-free concave rim design means that the SP Wall-Hung high-efficiency toilet performs more consistently and is easy to clean.
Clean Synergy: TOTO coined the term “Clean Synergy” to describe the interplay of its PREMIST®, DYNAMAX TORNADO FLUSH, CEFIONTECT®, and EWATER+® bowl cleaning technologies, all of which are only available from TOTO.
- PREMIST: The bowl’s interior is sprayed with a fine mist of water to reduce matter’s ability to stick to its surface.
- CEFIONTECT: This nano-technology glaze by TOTO seals the porcelain with an ionized barrier, creating a super-slippery, non-porous surface that repels matter.
- DYNAMAX TORNADO FLUSH: A TOTO innovation, the rimless bowl design and 2.5-inch diameter trapway use 100% of the water to remove waste effectively and clean every inch of the bowl and rim. The company’s DYNAMAX TORNADO FLUSH System optimizes water conservation while setting a high bar in quiet world-class flushing performance.
- EWATER+: The cleanliness of the bowl’s surface and WASHLET wand is ensured by spraying them with EWATER+. EWATER+ uses no chemicals or cleaning agents, providing peace of mind every day that microscopic buildup has no place to hide.
Auto-Flush: The new SP WASHLET+ SW Wall-Hung Toilet offers Auto-Flush. That is, to its WASHLET+ design, TOTO has added a sensor-operated auto-flush feature. The company’s proven touchless technology enables the toilet to flush automatically when the user simply rises and walks away. There is no need to wave a hand over a sensor to activate it; the unit responds automatically. Also, users may manually flush the unit if they desire by using the toilet’s push plate panel.
Beneath its sophisticated contemporary exterior, the SP Wall-Hung high-efficiency toilet’s matchless DYNAMAX TORNADO FLUSH system is designed to deliver an unparalleled flush that clears the bowl the first time, every time using a mere 0.9 gpf (light flush) or 1.28 gpf (full flush). The company’s market-leading DYNAMAX TORNADO FLUSH system is more effective in one flush than most toilets are with multiple flushes.
