Sanitaryware disabled, community, elderly, and their toilet seats. Let’s discover Ponte Giulio.
Ponte Giulio is considered the benchmark company in the industry.
As early as the 80s, it steered production towards aids for the disabled. Bathroom accessories that made it easier for people with mobility difficulties to use the various sanitary elements. Grab bars, fully-opening shower cubicles, ergonomic washbasins and, above all, large and extra-high sanitary fittings are some of the products that have improved, at least in the bathroom, the daily life of people with difficulties.
Today we will focus on the most popular series of sanitary ware (and their covers).
ROSSARI series Ponte Giulio
The company’s most famous series. Sanitaryware that broke new formal ground. Used in many public and private bathrooms for their versatility and practicality. Long in depth and available in different heights. With an opening at the front, with or without the bidet function, they are, mainly the WC, placed in many bathrooms of public establishments that are required by law (Ministerial Decree no. 236, art 8.1.6 of 14 June 1989) to make a bathroom available to the customers of the establishment that can be used by anyone.
However, we also find them in many bathrooms of private homes. Its elongated oval shape ending in two protruding fins at the end make it a very recognisable shape. Important dimensions (the toilet measures 60 cm in depth!), offered by the company in three different heights: 45, 47 and even 50, to be as versatile as possible in the daily use of the person who has it in the bathroom. And also with the possibility of having it with or without a front opening and consequently a built-in bidet function (a small water spout is inserted in the rim).
We come to the Rossari toilet seat cover that you can find in the Sintesibagno catalogue. The dedicated shape you see in the picture on the right is as distinctive as the toilet. Given the large size of the toilet seat, it measures a good 51/52 cm. Since the toilet seat is offered both with and without front opening, there are two toilet seats you can find: Rossari closed toilet seat at the following link [ clik here ] and Rossari open toilet seat at the following link [ clik here ]
OLDER series Ponte Giulio
It was perhaps one of the first ceramic series presented by the Ponte Giulio company: Older.
A series of sanitary ware with important dimensions. It was initially only presented in a floor-standing version with front opening (photos 1 and 2). A typical sanitary fitting for a disabled person who has to use it by sitting on top of the wheelchair. Later supplemented by the floor-standing version, but closed at the top (photos 3 and 4). Type of sanitary fitting most commonly used by people of the third age (elderly). Lastly, the suspended version (photo 5).
All Pontegiulio toilet seat covers Older series are available in the Sintesibagno store. There are some special features of the Pontegiulio toilet seat cover for floor-standing WCs. The centre distance is non-standard, a good 21 cm. And the dimensions, also considering the size of the toilet, are very large. We are talking about a toilet seat that is a good 51/52 cm long. You can find the OLDER toilet seat for closed floor-standing WCs at the following link [ clik here ].
