GROHE and parent company LIXIL aim to provide acsafe sanitation to 100 million people by 2020

GROHE and its parent company, LIXIL, are committed to improving access to safe sanitary facilities worldwide and aims to provide safe sanitation to 100 million people by 2020

About 2.4 billion people worldwide, an average of one in three, have no access to safe and clean toilets. As a global market leader in sanitary products, GROHE’s parent company, LIXIL, leverages its professional expertise to help millions of people across the globe gain access to hygienic sanitary facilities, aiming to provide safe sanitary solutions to some 100 million people by 2020.

“We are proud to make an important social contribution as a member of LIXIL Group Corporation and will take action to ensure that people all over the world understand the importance and positive effects of safe sanitary facilities,” said Michael Rauterkus, CEO of Grohe AG.

Both LIXIL and GROHE share the values of humanitarian responsibility and sustainability, and are committed to mastering the challenge of improving sanitation around the world. Their work includes the development of sustainable and hygienic solutions and products, which prevent the transmission and spreading of disease.

Through the new Spalet category, GROHE promotes optimum hygiene levels in the bathroom. The latest product offering, the Sensia Arena shower toilet (seen here), uses GROHE’s new AquaCeramic technology to create a smooth hydrophilic layer on the surface of the toilet, which dirt cannot stick to. The product also features HyperClean surfaces, which use naturally anti-bacterial ions to prevent 99% of bacteria growth.

The new Triple Vortex flushing system flushes from three water outlets at once, leaving nothing behind. The spray arms have also been designed to improve hygiene standards, as they are made from an antibacterial material and are rinsed before and after each use.
