Rimless Toilet Market in UK 2017-2021
About Rimless Toilet
Rimless toilets, as the name suggests, offer simplicity and convenience owing to the absence of the rim. The introduction of rimless toilets in the global toilet market is one of the few milestones in the market. From a visual point of view, a rimless toilet is similar to a conventional toilet that features a bowl, a cistern, and a seat. However, the major difference between the two toilet designs, which is visible on a closer look, is the absence of a rim in the rimless variant. The rim is nothing but an extended contour along the perimeter of the bowl to ensure even distribution of water to rinse the toilet bowl after its use. Hygiene is the main reason that prompted a design upgrade in the form of rimless fixtures. Due to the difficulty in cleaning it, the underside of the rim becomes a breeding ground for disease-causing bacteria, thus facilitating the multiplication and spread of germs through physical contact.
