Moda Rimfree. Traditionally, water is jetted around the bowl of a WC and channelled by an overlapping ceramic boxed or hidden rim. While this design has always provided a perfectly good flush, the impossibility of cleaning beneath the rim has potentially provided a place where germs could lurk. With the Moda Rimfree, there is no need for a rim. The result of years of careful engineering by Twyford Bathrooms, the Rimfree design efficiently removes all waste as effectively as a traditional toilet. The self draining jets at the back of the bowl release water which flows entirely round the inside of the pan, and with no hidden rim, there is simply nowhere for the germs to hide. For more information call 0870 020 0099 or visit www.twyfordbathrooms.com.
