NEOREST Series（NX/WX/LS/AS/RS） are TOTO was top-line series of toilets that strike a balance between ultra-water savings and waste discharge performance while realizing a hygienic and comfortable usage environment. Employing cutting-edge technologies such as tornado flush, CEFIONTECT and EWATER+, TOTO has raised the bar in cleanliness, comfort and environmental performance for toilets around the world. This year marks the 30th anniversary since TOTO launched the first-generation NEOREST on April 1, 1993.
WASHLET G5 is equipped with a host of features such as water savings and matches all kinds of bathroom spaces with a unique and simple shape in which straight and curved lines coexist. Along with advanced cleaning features, the shape eliminates unnecessary irregularities and gaps making it easy to clean.
The TORNADO FLUSH features powerful nozzle that create a centrifugal, cyclonic rinsing action which reduces waste buildup and keeps the bowl cleaner with minimum water Waste is thoroughly washed away as the flush hits the back of the bowl where waste sticks easily with powerful water. We also achieved a clean appearance, as the spout cannot be seen from the front of the toilet.
CEFIONTECT is a stain-resistant technology that makes it difficult for stains to adhere and easy to remove by baking a special glass layer on top of the conventional glaze to form a smooth inner surface of the toilet bowl down to the nano-level of one-millionth of a millimeter.
To maintain cleanliness, EWATER+*3 is sprayed on the easily fouled underneath the toilet seat with each use, to the front edge. This helps suppress urine and other waste from becoming yellow stains, for long-lasting
Hand Dryer [suction type] is a product installed in public spaces used by an unspecified number of people. In addition to approaches and design considerations that make it usable by all kinds of people, from children and the elderly to those with restricted mobility, TOTO has also given attention to the how it feels to use.
Hand Dryer [suction type] that won this award employs a suction system that sucks in air and water droplets which prevents air from blowing back and suppresses droplet dispersal, and is designed to provide greater comfort and peace of mind during use. It is also equipped with a HEPA filter that collects droplets and other fine particles. The sucked in air is purified through the HEPA filter so that the hands can be dried with clean air. This also reduces the burden on waste processing compared
