DuraStyle Basic: Newest ADA-Compliant Toilet by Duravit
Atlanta, GA ⎯ Duravit USA is committed to providing a vast range of product solutions to promote universal access and design to all. The company’s latest launch, the DuraStyle Basic floor-standing toilet, was designed specifically with the North American market in mind. This toilet joins Duravit’s SensoWash® i integrated shower-toilet and ME by Starck floor-standing toilet as the German-founded brand’s newest ADA-compliant toilet options. Additional wall-mounted toilets, available in ten of the brand’s ceramic collections (in an array of sizes and styles), afford a plethora of solutions to suit any bathroom project.
“We believe in offering preeminent bathroom solutions with products that are designed to fit seamlessly into modern life. ADA-compliant solutions and products that can be leveraged across Universal Design schemes are a large focus for Duravit,” says Tim Schroeder, President of Duravit USA. “We are pleased to offer a growing number of ADA-compliant toilets that range in style, market budget and size.”
As the American household is rapidly changing, Universal Design, or the concept of creating a space that can be used by everyone regardless of age or ability, is an increasingly important topic. According to a recent statistic from the National Building Museum, “Our population is aging rapidly and will need new housing solutions that can support aging-in-place with diminished physical or cognitive abilities. America’s housing supply, however, has been slow to respond to these extraordinary demographic shifts.” According to the Center for Universal Design, “barrier-free design and architectural accessibility recognizes the legal, economic and social power of a concept that addresses the…needs of people with and without disabilities.” In recognition that such features can be provided en mass in ways that are attractive and marketable, the Universal Design movement has been able to make significant and positive impact across the design industry in America. Duravit is committed to staying ahead of product development trends satisfying and pushing the needle forward to adhere to market needs and codes where ADA compliance and Universal Design compatibility are concerned.
Duravit’s new DuraStyle Basic floor standing toilet features rimless and HygieneGlaze 2.0 technology, in addition to dual flush capabilities; flush handles can be specified for left or right hand approach. ADA compliant in height (17″), this toilet (one-piece and two-piece models available) is a product designed by Duravit specifically for the North American market at a very accessible price point.

The ME by Starck floor-standing toilet, designed by Philippe Starck, is the perfect addition to an otherwise highly-successful collection, which was originally created based on the concept of “design for all.” The ME by Starck toilet encapsulates the collection’s function to offer individualized solutions for any and every bathroom with design and diversity in mind, and is a sleek ADA solution with its 17 3/4″ overall height and options for a left or right side flush lever.
