    Always at the forefront of design and innovation, leading sanitary solutions manufacturer Geberit has cornered the market with its revolutionary new DuoFresh odour extraction system that fills the room with pure fresh air after every use.Incorporated into the company’s existing market-leading Duofix framing system for wall-hung sanitaryware, DuoFresh is simple to install with fixings that installers will already be familiar with, but now has the added benefit of a built-in odour extraction to help keep the air fresh and clean.

    Integrated into Geberit’s stylish Sigma40 flush plate, the unit extracts odours from inside the WC pan and purifies the air through carbon filters before release. Extremely effective, highly user friendly, DuoFresh is ideal for small bathrooms, ensuites or cloakrooms which have minimal natural air flow. The Sigma40 flushplate features Geberit’s innovative insert for in-cistern blocks, providing the dual benefit of cleanliness as well as freshness. Compared to toilet bowl rim hangers, in-cistern blocks have the benefit of not being seen yet their refreshing effect is enjoyed on every flush.

    DuoFresh helps to enhance the minimalist look that wall-hung sanitaryware works so hard to create, with no need to clutter up the bathroom with cans of air freshener as everything needed to bring fresh air into the area around the WC is hidden behind the wall.

    Duofresh is good news for the eco-conscious homeowner, as not only does it eliminate the need for ozone destroying air fresheners, but it is also designed for use alongside Geberit’s Sigma dual flush concealed cistern, so it has water-saving credentials too. Plus it ensures that valuable heat is kept in the bathroom as a window does not need to be opened to ventilate the room.

    Available in either white, black or umbra glass finish, the Sigma 40 flush plate offers the ideal hiding place for the extraction unit, offering a stylish finishing touch to any bathroom setting.

    While the benefits for the homeowner are numerous, DuoFresh has advantages for installers too, enabling them to use Geberit’s tried and tested tool-free Duofix frame, while the unit itself works independently from any other ventilation systems in the room so it takes no time at all to fit.
