Geberit Love story

Geberit and the shower toilet: the beginnings of a love story

Geberit and the environment: sustainability squared

Geberit and the shower toilet: the beginning of a love story

In 1978, when Geberit launched the WC enhancement solution Geberella and the Geberit-O-Mat complete solution, the first Geberit WC with an integrated shower function – essentially a combination of a toilet and a bidet – the topic of personal hygiene was causing a real sensation all over the world. The Japanese, who are known for their high standards when it comes to cleanliness and personal hygiene, implemented what was then a novelty in their own domestic market at lightning speed. Just a few years later, the innovative toilets could be found in every second household there. In Europe, however, it would take a while longer before the intelligent shower toilets found their way into bathrooms and WCs. Geberit continued developing its shower principle and introduced further models under the Balena brand, including the first wall-hung shower toilet, which was also suitable for modern cisterns hidden behind the wall. In 2009, the product range was completely redesigned and relaunched under the name of Geberit AquaClean. These products not only meet higher quality standards, but also set a new benchmark for personal hygiene.

The product range is to be further enhanced in 2013 with the addition of a design-oriented model:

Geberit AquaClean Sela, created by the well-known architect and designer Matteo Thun. Geberit AquaClean Sela fulfils the requirement for pure bathroom design and the desire for the distinctive fresh feeling of Geberit AquaClean. This is also reflected in the product's name: 'Sela' is the name of the source of the River Inn, which springs up in the mountains of Switzerland's Engadin region.

Innovations: turning a bathroom into an oasis of well-being.

The Geberit AquaClean product range offers the right model for virtually any requirement and any home, whether you are looking for simplicity and subtlety or comfort and luxury. The shower function offers perfect cleanliness and an unparalleled feeling of freshness every time. A sense of well-being which you have to experience for yourself.

Our new campaign with brand ambassador Melanie Winiger therefore involves more than just communication. It showcases the beneficial feeling of water, without which pure cleanliness and natural freshness would not be possible. Our Geberit AquaClean products transport you into a new dimension in cleanliness and give you a sense of modern well-being, day after day.

Geberit and the environment: sustainability squared

Geberit creates long-lasting quality of life, thanks to innovative water management, extensive expertise and a consistent focus on sustainability - across all products, divisions and processes. We call this 'sustainability squared'.

Water is becoming increasingly scarce all over the world. With future generations in mind, it is therefore vital that we handle this essential resource carefully and efficiently. Geberit has always taken its responsibility seriously and aims to create long-lasting quality of life. This promise is realised through, for example, a prudent environmental strategy, durable products which save water throughout their life cycle, and our social commitment. This consistent focus on sustainability benefits everyone - the environment and society, customers and partners, and employees and shareholders.

Environmentally friendly thanks to ecodesign

By consistently applying the ecodesign testing criterion, Geberit is setting the standard in terms of development. This results in products which minimise water and energy consumption as well as reducing our overall environmental impact, and lay the foundations for sustainable building. We only produce, market and install products which meet strict sustainability criteria.

Social commitment

With our social aid projects, we aim to make a sustainable contribution towards enhancing quality of life - by helping to provide people in developing regions all over the world with better basic sanitary services and, therefore, with important foundations for life.
