Though a small addition, a flush plate can also be a sleek, stylish bathroom fitting. A thoroughly modern choice for most bathroom designs, flush plates can alienate toilet levers or handles and can even complement your current bathroom decor!
Here The Bathroom Showroom offers a quick guide to toilet flush plates while showcasing several fabulous designs from our vast range.
What Are Flush Plates?
A flush plate is a fixture that you push down on to activate the flush on your wall-hung toilet. It's connected to your toilet flushing mechanism whereby the system's water is released when you push the button down.
There are two common types of flush plates available, including single and dual flush choices. Your choice here will depend on the flushing mechanism that you already have in place.
A single flush plate consists of a single button that when pressed will tend to release around five litres of water. Whereas a dual flush button when pressed will release around eight to ten litres.
Most people tend to buy flush plates as a replacement for their current one, usually when it has become worn or damaged, or simply because they want to change the design up a bit and add a little style to their bathroom!
Does Every Flush Plate Fit Every Cistern?
You'll need to ensure that you have a compatible existing wall hung toilet and toilet fixing frame when selecting a flush plate for it. As flush plates aren't universal, you’ll need to be sure when purchasing them that they'll work with your current toilet choice. Yet, the manufacturer of your toilet will offer the correct selection of additional flush plates to further help you get this decision right here.
