The company’s humble beginnings took place in 1874 when founder, Caspar Melchior Geberit was granted work as a plumber. He also started to manufacture parts and designed the first wood-made cistern for toilets, called the Phoenix that was lead-coated and came with accessories (particularly a flush mechanism). A design born of such material was considered to be revolutionary and a great success.
During the next years, the company expanded through Switzerland and some foreign markets, incorporating new products (pipes, taps and valves). In the 30s, the company was one of the first to introduce plastic-made parts in the sanitary industry. Today, the globally operating Geberit Group is a European leader in the field of sanitary products. Geberit operates with a strong local presence in most European countries, providing unique solutions for sanitary technology and bathroom ceramics.
When you’re selecting the finishes for your bathroom design, it’s the little things that make all the difference. From the floor and wall coverings to the plumbing fixtures, everything has to be just right.
Fortunately, Geberit understands the importance of minute details. That’s why they offer you a wide range of flush plate options for use with their in-wall toilet and urinal systems. Geberit dual-flush plates feature a visual cue so that everyone approaching the system knows instantly how to operate it: press the small button to flush liquids and the large button to flush solids. It’s intuitive, but it also happens to save thousands of gallons of water every year.
Geberit concealed cisterns are the classics of modern bathroom installations and have been installed more than 70 million times over around the world for more than 55 years.
They are known for their time-honoured reliability. Every cistern is leak-tested before it is delivered. The 25-year guaranteed spare parts availability provides long-term security. The flush volume of the Geberit concealed cistern can be limited to 4.5 litres making it exemplary in terms of water consumption.
