To determine the choice of suspension options, few will get information about the toilets themselves - need to start to figure out what is the installation, and what it can be.

What is the installation and its design features

installation called skeletal system, which, in fact, attached himself the toilet, and all the necessary auxiliary devices and mechanisms

installation called frame system, embeddeda wall or a decorative box, which fixed all the elements of a suspended toilet bowl and flushing tank, valves, water and sewer pipes, other devices or mechanisms.The special features of the design include the following:

  • drain tank installed in an installation made of plastic instead of ceramic.It is made of the reasons that the polymer is always easier to ceramic products, which greatly reduces the load on the system framework.A tank of external data into account does not go - it still will not be seen.
  • tank designed for this system differs from the conventional in that the discharge switch is on its front panel, while in traditional cisterns, it is placed on top of the container.
Differentiated use of water at the sink can achieve considerable savings

  • The suspended discharge button design system differs from conventional reservoir by the fact that it consists of two branches, one of which provides a complete emptying of the container, andthe second - only half or ⅓ of the total.This is especially important in cases where for the water to pay for water meter readings.
  • will go only drain button and directly the toilet fixed to the weight After complete the installation design in the room bathrooms.
  • There are two ways of fastening the installation - only to the wall surface or the wall and the floor.Both mounts - are reliable and able to withstand the weight load that extends to four kilograms.
  • Suspension systems can be included bowls with a variety of modern and convenient forms of the water distribution system at its drain, which greatly facilitates the care of the bowl, as well as for a long time retains its "new" look.
  • very important to know that the size of the niche or ducts for the installation of plumbing should ideally coincide with the parameters of sanitary items.Therefore, conceiving the acquisition of such a system, the place of its installation is required in advance to fathom.There are models with upper sliding effluents to be installed in the desired width, but in this case the load on the wall will be considerably increased.

Criteria for selection of the installation for a suspended toilet

Choosing the right installation - it is even more important than themselves decide on the toilet

correctly select the installation - this is even more important than to decide on themselves toilet

To make the right installation choice for suspended toilet bowl, it takes into account some of the features:

  • first of all, you need to pay attention to the parameters of the place in which it is planned to install a system, as it will be guided when buying installation is necessary on them.In that case, if you can not find the right frame size, you have to buy a model equipped with moving elements, allowing the frame to fit the parameters intended for her niche.
  • If you plan to purchase a set at once with a toilet, particular attention should be paid and on its design and workmanship.This element of the overall design is especially important, and the criteria for its selection will be discussed separately below.
  • selecting the appropriate model installation, it is necessary to conduct a thorough check of its configuration, as in the absence of the individual parts may be impossible to produce a complete assembly structure.The installation may have different parts, but is recommended to acquire structure having the following elements:

- supporting frame;

- set of fasteners;

- cistern;

- button toilet tank;

- adapter for flushing the knee;

- soundproof materials.

  • It is important to take into account the construction and method of assembly, as sometimes to a common set will need to purchase additional fasteners.
  • must be remembered that for some models it is very difficult to find a replacement - this factor is also better to think in advance by examining customer reviews.If one of the necessary components are not included in the original packaging, it is better to pick it up and to purchase together with the installation, and otherwise would be wiser to give up all of this purchase.Do not rely on the words of the seller that the missing elements in the kit can be easily found anywhere else.Absolutely not logical - if it is not in the shop assortment, implementing the installation, it is unlikely that it will be possible to pick up other outlets.
  • is important to determine which design will be fixed on the wall structure.If this is the main wall, the installation of the installation is carried out using anchor bolts.If they are not included, they have to be purchased separately.
  • In some cases, flushing button although included, but you can choose her another model, more like on the design registration or by the presence of one or two buttons on her panel.What is better to choose a button - will depend on the preferences of the buyer, but a double button to help save on water consumption.
