Five Reasons To Consider Wall-Hung Pans And Frames
June 6, 2018
Wall-hung pans are pretty popular with customers at the moment, as you’ll probably know. But they bring a lot of benefits for both you and the end user.
Whether you’ve installed hundreds of ‘em or none at all, here’s five reasons to think about using wall-hung pans:
1. Space saving
Thanks to the cistern being hidden away behind a wall, wall-hung pans take up less space than a traditional close-coupled option, which makes them perfect for customers with limited space. It also creates the illusion of extra space. That’s because the floor underneath is left open, which also makes it easier to clean.
2. Adjustable height
Does your customer want something a little higher off the ground, or maybe lower than the standard pan height? No problem. The frame can be adjusted before installation to allow the pan to sit where it suits their needs.
3. Just as strong
People often worry and think wall-hung pans will fall off the wall they’re connected to, but they can actually hold over 200kg – or 30 stone – in weight. The frames are super-strong too, so you can fit them to any wall – even a stud wall if it’s reinforced and supported correctly.
4. Plenty of options
If your customers are looking to customise their bathroom, there’s a load of different flush button options they can choose from. Whether that’s a glossy white finish to match the rest of their bathroom or a custom image printed on the face plate, there is something for everyone.
5. A luxury finish
Wall-hung toilets are a trend for 2018 and beyond. They’ve got a stylish and luxurious look that stays over time and makes them a favourite with customers!
That’s not all folks! The in-wall frame for the pans are also a lot easier to fit than you might expect. Start by picking the correct height – under window frames are smaller, for example – and the right type for the supporting wall. If you’re not sure, our branches are full of expert knowledge.
Then you just need to:
- build the timber or metal frame to support the in-wall frame, drilling a new waste and filling the old one
- adjust the height and then attach the in-wall frame with the fixings supplied
- attach the water inlet and internals for the system, according to manufacturer guidelines
- plaster the wall, making sure you leave space for the flush plate
- install the customer’s choice of wall-hung pans and flush plate
