Villeroy & Boch's ViConnect line consists of intuitive, quick and easy to assemble 'made in Germany' installation systems and high-quality flush plates. The company has now rounded off its range of dry-wall and brick-wall construction elements with new installation systems for washbasins, bidets and urinals, to offer the perfect installation solution for all wall-mounted sanitary ceramics. The ViConnect system now also includes elegant flush plates to open up greater scope for attractive bathroom design.
Installation systems for urinals, washbasins and bidets
Three new installation systems are increasing flexibility with height-adjustable feet and durable frames made from powder-coated steel for secure installation of washbasins, bidets and urinals.
The new washbasin installation system can be adapted individually to all Villeroy & Boch washbasins and is also suitable for larger models. The water connections can be located as required, while a plywood panel and scaling allow free positioning of the drinking water pipe and system wall plates. Trap covers can be installed using SmartFix. The ViConnect installation system is also suitable for use with flush-mounted siphons.
The bidet installation system includes an additional strut to provide perfect support for the wall-mounted ceramic, while freely positionable water connections and compatibility with all standard bidet taps pave the way for greater flexibility.
The new urinal installation system is suitable for use with all Villeroy & Boch urinals thanks to adjustable struts and a flushing system based on a universal cartridge valve technology. The rinse flow can be adjusted continuously from 4 to 20 seconds. The metal flex hose can be assembled without tools. The installation system is compatible with the easy-to-maintain ViChange cartridges. As well as the universal model, the range also includes a specific installation system for urinals with ProDetect technology. An urinal flush plate with a special anti-theft fixing adds the finishing touch to the ViConnect urinal installation solution.
The new flush plates
The new M300 and E300 flush plates are a real design highlight for ViConnect, offering a unique combination of flexibility and aesthetics. As well as surface-mounting, the plates can also be flush-mounted in all ViConnect installation systems using an optional stainless steel frame, which also provides guidance when tiling. The front plate is applied intuitively using a magnet technique. The new flush plates impress with an elegant and contemporary design, and a slender plate thickness of just 5 mm, even when surface-mounted. The narrow buttons give the plates an extremely light and understated look, while their rounded design ensures a pleasant tactile experience when operating the flush.
The plates are available in a total of ten versions and have been selected to match the main furniture panels. Three particularly stylish versions feature glass plates and stainless steel buttons (M300) and come in the colours of “Glass, Glossy White”, “Glass, Glossy Black” and “Glass, Glossy Grey”. The E300 standard version allows a wide range of additional colour combinations.
An innovative cable technology with bayonet joint ensures quick and easy installation of all Villeroy & Boch flush plates. A dual-flush option for the flush plates means that ViConnect actively helps to save water. The flush volume can be set to an economical 3/4.5 litres or 3/6 litres of water per flush.
As well as the new flush plates, the existing range features four additional models made from high-quality plastic (E100/E200) or glass (M200/L200). The ViConnect L200 flush plate has an LED light and is available in an elegant "Glass Glossy Black" finish.
In addition to the new ViConnect products, nine installation systems are currently available for toilets – five for dry-wall installation and four for brick-wall installation. They are suitable for all wall-mounted toilets, i.e. all standard, vita, XL and compact models, as well as toilets with SupraFix attachment, shorter rear panel or shower toilet function. All models offer a quiet water flow thanks to a tested filling value and drain fitting.
Villeroy & Boch's ViConnect range for toilets is available as an individual element or as part of a pack including an installation system and flush plate along with the toilet and seat. This provides the installer with all the required components for easier installation of the toilet technology.
Proven quality and services
The high standard of all ViConnect installation systems has been certified by independent institutes and is checked regularly in in-house tests. Villeroy & Boch also provides a 25-year availability guarantee for replacement parts.
As with all other products, customers purchasing ViConnect can access the usual professional support from a Service and After Sales team as well as a comprehensive information pack. Training can be provided on request. Distinguished by the familiar Villeroy & Boch quality, ViConnect is always the right solution in front of and behind the wall.
