What is concealed cistern? A concealed cistern is a cistern hidden behind the wall of the bathroom, which enables the toilet pan to sit flush against the wall. In the world of modern bathroom decoration minimalism appears to be king, and so the hidden cistern toilet reigns in popularity. The regular concealed cistern includes a push button manual plate. The plate material is plastic or metal. While obviously, automatic sensor concealed cistern is operated with a sensor plate instead of manual one. The panel is metal or tempered glass.

The main advantage for automatic concealed cistern is touchfree operation. There is no contact to the plate since you do not need to push the manual button. Instead, the the sensor will help you activate water flush automatically. More intelligent is the sensor will distinguish half flush and full flush based on using time. This is very much helpful for kids, the old and the enables.

Like regular concealed cistern, the bathroom cleaning is made much simpler with the sensor operated concealed toilet cistern. Especially if the bowl is wall hung. There is less plumbing on display and the wall finish is more prominent, which can be very much attractive when the concealed toilet cistern is combined with a beautiful ceramic tile.

On the other hand, the sensor concealed toilet cistern saves a lot of space so can be very practical for use in small bathrooms and en-suites. Nowadays when we are all more aware of ‘lifetime housing’, future-proofing the home with the automatic sensor concealed cistern allows the sensor flush plate to be placed at a convenient height. The flush plate can be remotely connected to the valve via a metal cable mechanism. For anyone with limited mobility, this is a simple and practical way to make the bathroom more wheelchair friendly.

You may ask where to position the concealed toilet cistern? The answer is the sensor concealed cistern is the same with regular cistern, which can be accommodated within the bathroom wall partition or inside a built-out shelf or a piece of furniture. On the one hand, for a new build bathroom, the partition wall can be designed in such a way that the cistern is housed within and the bowl can also be supported off the partition structure. Alternatively on the other hand, for an existing bathroom, the partition behind the back to wall toilet can be boxed out to above cistern height. The cover panel can then be tiled or painted to match or compliment the bathroom wall finish.
