Villeroy & Boch paves the way for even more flexibility in toilet installation -
SupraFix 3.0: the new generation of the toilet attachment system
Easy installation. Invisible mounting system. Villeroy & Boch's SupraFix 3.0 makes light work of toilet installations. Since its launch in 2009, the patented toilet attachment system has proven its worth in practice. With the launch of SupraFix 3.0, the company is now unveiling a new generation (patent application pending) allowing even more flexible and precise positioning.
As before, SupraFix 3.0 also allows wall-mounted toilets to be installed easily and securely by just one person - very quickly, working conveniently from above with no visible screws, holes or covers. The same holes in the ceramic are used to attach both the toilet and the seat.
Intelligent two-in-one functionality and new vario nuts
In the first step, two mounting brackets are secured using a single connector made from high-quality plastic and attached to the wall to support the toilet. As soon as the installer places one of the two mounting bolts in the assembly holes, SupraFix provides stable support. The installer can then align the toilet and tighten the mounting bolts from above using an Allen key. This pulls the toilet firmly against the wall.
New vario nuts, developed specially for SupraFix 3.0, are used to fit the toilet seat. The vario nuts provide a mating thread for the hinges in the bolt and allow flexible alignment of the toilet seat with the ceramic according to the customer’s wishes - either slightly projecting or flush fitting. For a perfect fit.
SupraFix 3.0 will be launched for all wall-mounted toilets previously installed using SupraFix 2.0 from 2018. The new seats, as before, available in different designs and with QuickRelease and SoftClosing, will then automatically be supplied with vario nuts. There will be no change to the item numbers.
The compatibility of the two SupraFix systems avoids any problem with subsequent purchases of toilet seats. A new toilet seat with SupraFix 3.0 can be fitted on a toilet installed with SupraFix 2.0. The vario nuts are not required in this scenario. When fitting a toilet seat to a new SupraFix 3.0 toilet, the vario nuts are required in every case. Installers can order these from the Villeroy & Boch Service department as they will not be enclosed with models delivered before the changeover. Other spare parts for SupraFix 2.0 and SupraFix 3.0 are also available, if required.
Kirsten Wienberg, Head of Global Product Development & Design at Villeroy & Boch, is convinced: “As an innovative company, we are continuously working to develop our tried-and-tested products and improve them to meet our customers’ requirements. With SupraFix 3.0, we have once again succeeded in this task.”
