Universal design was a major theme at the 2010 Builders’ Show and Kohler delivered with their assisted living toilet, Fountainhead elongated one-piece toilet.
It was displayed prominently in their gorgeous exhibitor space and you couldn’t help but press the buttons to see the seat rise and fall effortlessly. The toilet as all others in their display were working models and this toilet looks as if it was designed by engineers who saw form and function equally.
Specs on the toilet:
With just a slight touch the user can actuate the automatic seat and ring opening or closing. Additionally, the toilet will automatically flush when the toilet seat lid is closed. Innovative tankless Power Lite® technology provides exceptional flushing performance, using just 1.28 gallons per flush, saving as much as 3,200 gallons of water annually over a traditional 1.6-gallon toilet. A Comfort Height™ bowl and exclusive Kohler toilet seat ensure comfort, hygiene and safety.
