「TOTO CLEANOVATION」―WASHLET/CLEAN SYNERGY/TOUCHLESS

The spread of Covid-19 has increased global awareness about people's sanitation and cleanliness, thus generating new habits. At ISH 2021, we explain how the concept TOTO CLEANOVATION has been further developed so that TOTO's clean technology can support safe and comfortable living for our customers, centering on WASHLET (comfort), CLEAN SYNERGY (cleanliness), and TOUCHLESS (peace of mind).

 

WASHLET

WASHLET was created in Japan in 1980 and is cultivating the world a living culture of "washing, not wiping." 40 years since its launch, a total of 53 million had been sold as of April 2020. People all over the world are coming to recognize this toilet culture that started in Japan. At ISH, we will present the "clean and comfortable lifestyle" that WASHLET brings about, along with WASHLET-derived motto "Let's Wash." We are presenting the appeal of WASHLET and the reasons for its various amenities, such as its washing power, comfort, and warm seat and deodorizing function for pleasant toilet visits.

 

CLEAN SYNERGY

TOTO's toilet technology is not just a collection of individual superb technologies but work together to synergize and keep the toilet clean every time you use it. We refer to those synergetic effects taken together as CLEAN SYNERGY. We provide an easy-to-understand introduction of the CLEAN SYNERGY realized by TOTO toilet bowl and WASHLET through our CLEAN Technology: loosen the dirt (PREMIST), moving the dirt (CEFIONTECT), washing away the waste (TORNADO FLUSH), disinfection (EWATER+) as well as Clean Design: RIMLESS, which pays attention to cleanliness in addition to design.

 

TOUCHLESS

This is TOUCHLESS technology that almost entirely removes the need to touch the facilities when using the toilet and other things in the bathroom areas. TOUCHLESS means peace of mind derived from not touching and is something we want to realize around the toilet, the sink, and all bathroom spaces. Opening and closing the lid, washing the bowl, and other functions when using the toilet are done automatically , and you can wash your hands by turning the water and soap on and off without touching anything. Through TOUCHLESS, TOTO is realizing a peace of mind that is not just cleanliness but also ease of use for everyone. At ISH 2021, we present TOTO's determination by highlighting the TOUCHLESS FAUCET that contributes to touchless handwashing, the need for which is garnering attention across the world.

 

Exhibit Products

You will be able to experience all the benefits we are offering our customers to enrich life, such as cleanliness, design, and comfort that increases with every use, as if you are actually seeing and touching them by using a diverse range of digital expressions.

 

TOILET & WASHLET

NEOREST NX as the highest model in the SMART TOILET NEOREST series, along with the full NEOREST LE/AH/RH/DH lineup. For combinations of WASHLET and toilet bowl, we have the first appearances of WASHLET RG (new product) and wallhung toilet bowl GP (new product). The compact WASHLET RG is characterized by a simple design that blends in anywhere. EWATER+, the representative CLEAN SYNERGY, comes as default. It further adds variability to the clean and comfortable restroom space. You won't be able to actually touch the products at this ISH, but the 360-degree digital contents allows you to look at the products from any angle you want and check their various functions.

 

TOUCHLESS FAUCET (incl. new products for 2021)

We exhibit our globally unified model of faucet, which went on sale in 2019. The three aspects of "beauty, pleasantness, peace of mind" are realized through the various technologies equipped, while diverse variations in form, color, and finish make them ideal for bathroom spaces all over the world where high design quality is key, thus earning them an excellent reputation as a product series that you choose from with excitement and fun.

For the first time, we are adding the 10 series of the TOUCHLESS FAUCETS (new products) to our globally unified model of faucets. This product is drawing attention across the world for realizing hygiene and cleanliness for the new normal. The range of selections has increased as we bring together the faucets and design tastes launched in 2019.

We have improved the design quality of the faucet itself by installing a compact sensor by the spout to realize high-performance and comfortable usability. Moreover, besides TOUCHLESS FAUCET's excellent benefit of saving water by eliminating the risk of leaving the water running, it has the function ECOPOWER that lets it generate and accumulate power by itself using the momentum of the water used. We also care about reducing the burden on the environment through functions like ECOCAP, which is a water-saving technology that increases the aeration ratio and realizes pleasant hand-washing at low flow rates (approx. 2L/min).

We are proposing total washroom spaces by combining the 10 series of the TOUCHLESS FAUCETS and the similarly designed 3 series (round/rectangle/gooseneck) of automatic soap dispensers with matching washbasins.
