We consider the toilet seat a completely secondary item in our household. We almost never think about him. However, each of us uses it several times a day. It is important to us that it is above all functional, clean, comfortable and fits well into the bathroom environment.
When you find yourself in a situation where you need to replace an old toilet seat or install a brand new one, what is the first thing you think about? Where to buy a new toilet seat?
You can find toilet seats in various places, most often in sanitary equipment stores, in large consumer shopping centers or in online stores.
When choosing a toilet seat, one of the important factors is the SHAPE. Look at your toilet bowl and think about which shape of the toilet seat would suit you best.
The next thing you might want to think about is the choice of material. Toilet seats are usually made of three types of materials: duroplast, moulded wood and thermoplast. Each material has its own features and we like to say, its own purpose.
Duroplast toilet seats
Duroplast is a very durable and long-lasting scratch-resistant material. It tolerates various cleaning agents well, although not those based on chlorine and very aggressive ones, because after all it is a type of plastic and not ceramic. We highly recommend their use in frequented places (hotels, hospitals, schools, public institutions) used by a large number of people. Duuroplast toilet seats come with various features, and our specialty is Ultra-fix, a professional fastening system that keeps the toilet seat firmly in place. The shine of duraplast almost matches the shine of ceramics, so visually it forms a beautiful whole.
Moulded wood toilet seats
This material is relatively new on our market and still unknown to many. It is often replaced with MDF, however our moulded wood toilet seats are manufactured in United States and assembled in United Kingdom. They are very concrete and firm and resistant to moisture, but extremely pleasant and warm in contact with the skin. They are made of wooden recycled material and painted with water-based paints, so they are very environmentally friendly. Sustainability is extremely important to us in the Bemis Manufacturing Company group, so we love these products that we recycle post-industrial waste, protect the environment and nature. Special cleaning and maintenance rules apply to these products – mild antibacterial soaps or wet wipes will suffice. We recommend Bemis Moulded wood toilet seats in family households.
(Thermo)Plastic toilet seats
Thermoplastic toilet seats are usually considered products of a lower price point in accordance with the quality and characteristics they had. In recent years, thermoplastics have gained increasing popularity due to their durability and elasticity, as well as their recyclability. The high degree of gloss provided by the thermoplastic material looks beautiful in bathrooms and is pleasant in contact with the skin. In the world of thermoplastics, there are many possibilities, so we are introducing more and more models that are much more compact and stable, and soon we will start with the Bemis ECCO line, toilet seats made from waste recycled plastic. If you are as environmentally conscious as we are, be sure to pay attention to our ECCO products.
