SANITARY WARE PRODUCTION: TRADITION AND INNOVATION The basic ingredients for making ceramics have always been naturally occurring raw materials: Kaolinite, clay, feldspar and quartz sand form the basis for this extremely durable and hard material.
TRADITIONAL CERAMIC MATERIAL Ceramic is one of the oldest man-made materials around, and consists entirely of naturally-occurring raw materials. Ceramic is 100% recyclable and can be added as ground material to the production process or used in other industries as a valuable raw material. The longevity and recyclability of materials is of critical importance for our environment.
CERAMICS OR SYNTHETIC MATERIALS Ceramic is the material which has been traditionally used in the bathroom over the centuries – and with good reason. The superiority of the material is evident, particularly in terms of hygiene, useful lifetime, environmental compatibility and durability.
LCC - LAUFEN CLEAN COAT Lifelong perfection - LCC-enhanced ceramic surfaces. When new, all washbasins and WCs are impeccable and look brilliant. To make sure they stay that way, LAUFEN has developed its innovative surface finish LAUFEN CLEAN COAT.
SAPHIRKERAMIK A revolution in the formal language of ceramics SaphirKeramik is used when a design includes very delicate, thinwalled shapes and tight radii, which in the past were generally realized using mineral casting, glass or enamelled steel.
OUR CONCEALED CERAMIC OVERFLOW SYSTEM Our concealed ceramic overflow system, the alternative to standard overflows for washbasins and bidets, has many benefits. Thanks to our overflow system which is invisible from the outside, our washbasins and bidets no longer have a visible overflow hole.
HIDDEN DRAIN DESIGN LAUFEN is breaking the mould when it comes to drain design. The new washbasins in the Kartell by LAUFEN range have no visible drainage opening. The water disappears into a narrow, hidden drain through an elegant pipe.
LAUFEN WATER-SAVING WCs The latest generation of LAUFEN water-saving WCs is optimised to flush with two reduced flushing volumes: 4.5 or 3 litres of water. Compared to today’s 6/3 litre dual flush or 6 litre single flush standard, these new models provide substantial water savings.
LAUFEN EASYFIT LAUFEN has developed a revolutionary wall fixation system for WCs, bidets and urinals. A patent has been lodged. The invisible, easy to mount fixation system meets the needs of both fitters and end users.
LOWERING SYSTEM Thanks to our convenient lowering system many of our WC covers and seats close gently and quietly. For easier cleaning, all LAUFEN seats can be removed with a simple hand movement.
