KOHLER, Wis. – Jan. 19, 2016 – A recent Houzz study reveals that the leading two elements of bathroom design among homeowners are style and ease of cleaning, and that bidets are increasingly considered for bathroom remodels. Kohler’s new Veil Intelligent toilet boasts this trifecta, sophisticated style, ease of cleanliness and bidet technology, in a sleek, contemporary fashion. With its clean, refined design lines and concealed tank, the Veil toilet offers smart toilet functionality with minimal aesthetic interruption to the overall bathroom space.
Veil includes features such as automatic opening/closing lid and flushing to minimize touch points, easing user’s concerns about spreading germs in the bathroom. The new Veil Intelligent toilet uses cutting-edge technology to provide comfort features including integrated bidet functionality in a seamless manner, packaging these personal hygiene features in a design that is both unassuming and approachable.
“From an early age, we are taught a toilet routine, however, as standards for personal cleanliness increase, American consumers are learning there is a better way to achieve personal hygiene,” says Shane Allis, marketing director of Kohler sanitary products. “Bidet functionality has been a growing trend as American consumers learn it provides a more thorough and hygienic level of cleanliness compared to the traditional toilet routine but consumers are not willing to sacrifice design. The Veil Intelligent toilet offers the best of both worlds.”
A stainless steel bidet wand offers warm water cleaning with adjustable spray shape, position, water pressure, temperature, pulsate, and oscillate functions for anterior and posterior positions. A soothing warm-air drying system with adjustable temperature settings provides additional comfort. The self-cleaning function uses UV light and electrolyzed water systems to sanitize the bidet wand surfaces.
Incorporating Kohler’s popular French Curve toilet seat design, this toilet provides an ergonomically designed experience to minimize pressure points and enhance comfort.
Veil’s touch screen remote control offers complete customization from its full menu of cleansing and comfort features including adjustable water temperature, bidet wand position and function type, heated seat, dryer, deodorizer, night light and flush control.
The Veil toilet is equipped with an exceptional flushing system featuring a rimless bowl for a cleaner flush, dual jets to create a strong siphon for efficient flushing and powerful water flow to eliminate bowl residue. Offered with both 1.28-gallon and 0.8-gallon eco flush options, the Veil Intelligent toilet saves as much as 6,000 gallons of water annually over a standard 1.6-gallon toilet.
