A patented Caroma technology is revolutionising the installation of toilet suites in renovations, retrofits or new builds.
Caroma’s patented Orbital Technology is an ideal installation solution designed to overcome set-out compatibility issues, simplifying the job for the plumber and increasing the range of options available when choosing a toilet suite.
Orbital Technology is uniquely adjustable, with the capability to extend a toilet set-out to any position up to a 50mm radius. By rotating the upper and lower bodies, the connector assists in adapting to a wider range of set-outs and makes it easier for plumbers to install a toilet suite to existing pipework, saving both time and money.
Toilet installations are impacted by various factors. From the time a slab is poured to when the toilet is installed, the specified set-out changes frequently with even tile selection becoming a factor. Caroma’s Orbital Technology has been developed to overcome these issues, allowing for greater freedom in how a toilet suite can be positioned in new bathrooms, renovations or retrofits.
Following on from the success of the original Caroma Orbital connector, which is suitable for close coupled toilet suites, the new Uni-Orbital connector provides increased installation flexibility exclusively for Caroma wall faced toilet suites.
While other connectors generally only move backwards and forwards, the Uni-Orbital connector allows radial adjustment, enabling plumbers to easily align the toilet suite with tile lines, push buttons, cistern flush pipe or drainline. The wall faced suite can also be installed clear from any obstacles such as a stop cock. The new fixing plate has additional holes allowing multiple fixing points to ensure contact with a stud.
Available in both standard and compact variations, Uni-Orbital connectors have a quick ﬁt connection that pushes straight into the drainline, eliminating the need to purchase and install a separate pan collar.
The compact version comes standard with new reduced projection pans from Caroma, allowing for the standard set-out range to be maintained even with the smaller pans, which is ideal for smaller bathrooms where space is at a premium.
By design, the Orbital and Uni-Orbital connectors feature large trap throughways in all configurations, ensuring effective flush performance.
Caroma’s Orbital Technology has been rigorously tested above Australian Standard requirements for pressure testing.
The Orbital and Uni-Orbital connectors are available exclusively with selected Caroma toilet suites.
