Wall Hung Toilets (Hanging Toilets)

What Are Wall Hung Toilets?
Wall hung toilets, also known as wall-mounted and floating toilets; are a modern, clean, efficient way of installing a toilet in your new bathroom. They are simply a ceramic pan (toilet bowl) and seat that has the effect of floating off the ground by being affixed to the bathroom wall - hence the name 'wall-hung'.

By removing the need for a standard exposed cistern, the wall hung toilet is a graceful piece. Comfortable to use and equally pleasing to behold, they are a truly modern innovation with a timeless, iconic appeal. To complete a wall hung toilet suite don't forget the required parts. These include mounting frames, concealed toilet cisterns and flush plates.

How good are wall hung toilets?
Wall hung toilets are efficient, clean and stylish. Thanks to innovative design and ceramics technology, we can install a range of toilets for you that will cut your cleaning time. These wall-mounted pans are completely rim-free removing any hidden areas for germs and dirt to accumulate. This makes cleaning easier but also keeps your toilet pan cleaner for longer and much more hygienic.

How strong are wall hung toilets?
One of the questions we are sometimes asked about wall hung toilets is how they are strong enough to support a person. The toilet is supported by a properly installed cistern frame pack. Once installed correctly, the combined frame and toilet installation should support over 200kg. So we hope this gives you peace of mind. In short, wall-mounted toilets are extremely safe and robust! 

How wall hung toilets work
Wall-mounted pans require a concealed cistern and frame. The frame is very important as it not only holds the weight of the pan securely on the wall but it supports your weight when the toilet is in use. The cistern is concealed in the wall, feeding clean water into the pan on the operation of the flush plate or button. A variety of designs and heights are available.

A contemporary classic feel is easily achieved with a wall hung pan, off the floor design adds to a lighter cleaner feel. Whilst the traditional fluting of this design style adds traditional period charm and character. 

Wall Hung Toilets Pros And Cons

  1. Cleanliness. A variety of features make the wall hung pan a more hygienic choice, including upgrading to a rimless pan type. Mainly the simple wash-down nature of a wall hung shape which allows it to be cleaned quickly. The floor space underneath is quickly and easily moped up, and with no cistern, on display there is no cistern to clean. Opting for a smooth shape means no nooks and crannies for dust and dirt to build up.
  2. Design aesthetic. A modern, contemporary light look is achieved by installing the cistern in the wall; you are hiding the clutter away in a wall cavity or unit. You are essentially freeing up that space to the eye, creating the illusion of a larger, less busy area.
  3. Reduced noise. Quality cisterns for example come with insulation technology. This reduces the noise of the cistern filling. There is also no clanking of a pottery cistern lid, but a simple flush plate that can be removed for access to the cistern.

  1. Budget. It may be more prudent to opt for a floor standing toilet (sometimes called back to wall) with a concealed cistern if your budget is very tight.
  2. Space. You may not have space or facilities to create a wall cavity to house the concealed cistern and frame required, in which case you could consider a toilet unit. Alternatively a close coupled toilet could be what you’re looking for.
  3. Footprint. You may prefer the base of your toilet to stand on the floor, but also like the idea of a concealed cistern. In which case you should opt for a floor standing toilet that only needs a concealed cistern. No frame is required to hold the weight of the pan up, and these can be installed in furniture or cavities.

Final thoughts for wall-hung toilets installations
A final thought based on our experience would be to advise you to go for a taller cistern frame if you do have the height available. The reason for this is that with the shorter toilet frames, 0.82 for example have a lower flush plate fitting area. Which can be obscured when raising the toilet lid. This is fine for most people, but it is nicer in the finished bathroom design to have a toilet seat that opens and sits below the toilet button plate. This avoids it hitting the plate and allows for a smoother opening.

Taller customers will also appreciate a higher frame! Another tip would be if you prefer a button to a plate, there are several buttons that can be used instead of a flush plate.
